COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Uerige DoppelSticke might just be "Germany's interpretation of a barley-wine", ie a third definition next to England's "malt-driven" idea {such as JW Lees Vintage Harvest Ale} and America's "hop-heavy" version {such as Sierra Nevada's BigFoot}. OG - 1085; IBU - 75; Ingredients; Hops:Spalt Spalter, Hallertauer Perle, Spalt Hallertauer; Malts: Pilsner malt, caramel malt, roasted malt

The aroma is strong with pineapple and a bit of banana. The deep reddish brown body is topped with an ample rocky peach colored head that sticks pleasingly to the sides of the glass. Lots of caramel and plenty sweet, but not cloying. Bitterness is present near the end but not prominent. Meaty mouthfeel finishes with a warming alchoholic shot at the end.

Ooooooga. Banana notes in yeast, hay, grass, no bitterness in hop aroma but a clean, dry finish with a sweet sticky aftertaste. Notes of pineapple, cinnamon, good flan (b/c good flan is decadent and bad flan is retch-inducing), apples, caramel, more banana, toastiness and bread in the middle. This was an English barleywine done right and a German delicacy of complexity and drinkability that most bocks strive for and miss. Mouthfeel on this side of heavy, smooth with medium, soft carbonation. Oooo, yummy.

07.03.05 Funny little swingtop bottle as with the other Uerige brews. This one has been showing up all around NJ lately. Handsome copper-red pour beneath a creamy head of khaki foam. Lovely aromas of salted pretzel, pumpernickle bread, brushes with autumn, damp leaves. Altogether tame and pleasant aromas that do not betray the cyclone hidden beneath the surface. The flavor that emerges is almost shocking given the mellow tone set on the nose, yet not out of line or off the wall by any means. Full and round body supports a smooth malty mix of toasty pale grains, very bready, cooling mineral finish, light spicy bite. Acidic in a way similar to a fresh bread, but not acetic of citric. Lovely.

Draught @ Papago This was a special 2-keg extravaganza at Papago, and what a sight and treat it was, but you can read the story on Papago website. The beer fresh from the tap is a dark beauty with a modest creamy light tan head that lingers long, leaving a fine coating of lace upon the glass. Nose is rich in bread dough, sweet and mouth watering this nose, hints of caramel and even a whiff of hops, apples and a bit of alcohol finish it off, start is sweet and thick with malt, the top is middling in its feel. Finish is delectable with its spicy hop bite, the acidity light and the sweet malt dry aftertaste lingers long on the palate, what a treat it was, had several glasses. Personally, I think it could be called a “Barley Wine”, and I must say it is the best beer I have tasted in quite some time.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 28, 2005
33 cl bottle from Downtown Liquors in Somerville, MA. Dark chestnut-amber with huge but fast disappearing white head...sweet whiskeyish, peaty nose, some yeastiness and caramel, fairly strong and heavy...plenty of alcohol in the body as well, excellent thick caramel malt with light smokiness throughout, quite sweet...soft milky mouthfeel, alcohoic harshness fairly prominent near the finish and offering some bitterness amidst the brown sugar and light rosemary/anise character. More interesting than good, really, but worth a try for the experimentally inclined and alt-lovers.

desurfer (1212) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Pours a clear, deep amber with a pillow beige head. Aroma is very doughy and sweet with some alcohol. Flavor is pretty weak except for an overpowering alcohol burn. There’s a bit of sweetness in the background. Finishes bland. Eh.

A very deep amber ale with a strong alcohol aroma. Taste and feels like drinking a wine. Pleasant finish to the beer but not much hop or malt flavor.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Poured a dark amber with a slightly yellowish head. The aroma is alcoholic with brandy and some pears. There is also some rich caramel. The taste has some roasted peanuts and a little bit of toffee. There is also a rather dry finish of well toasted bread crust. The alcohol is well hidden. Nicely done. Cool looking bottle.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Very nice looking pour. Deep copper topped by a creamy (almost like a forced pour) light tan head. The aroma is light toasted bread, grain and caramel. The flavor is more nutty than the aroma, quite sweet and a surprising hop kick comes late. Medium metallic body. Certainly a stretch for an alt. Very much like a hoppy dopplebock. There is some late astringency that is a bit of a put-off, but otherwise it is pretty enjoyable, and very interesting.

MBA and mkobes brought this to egajdzis’s for the tripel night. pours a caramel brown color with a firm white head, aroma was slightly musty alongside some caramel and nuts. flavor matched the nose rather closely, adding a hint of molasses, and ending with a smooth malty tail. a very sweet and tasty beer.
