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

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 (1219) - 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 (5100) - 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.

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.

Bottled on 4/18/2005 consumed 6/16/2005. Copper-amber, with vertical auburn stripes. Light beige head is initially medium-sized and well-retained, but once I begin to drink and it is disrupted, it departs quickly to a ring. Decent lacing. Medium-sized bubbles rise vigorously. Aroma of light cedar wood pulp, bits of toasted grains, light caramel, but mainly bitterness. No one else talks about hops, which is odd. Seems to me to have a lot of hops bitterness, or maybe the bitterness is coming from something else? Smells like an IPA to me. Nutty, floral notes, acidic, pine resin. Acidic and biting, this is powerful stuff. It lingers on the palate on the finish. Flavorful, at least, but it’s so piney. Sugary and fruity as well, reminds me of DFH 90 minutes. Low carbonation. Lightly syrupy body. No real yeast presence that I can find. Odd to say the least, IMHO.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2005
Rich amber color with a thick head. Sticky sweet maple and caramel taste, toast and dried fruits and nuts. Very clean palate, thick, chewy and creamy. Hardly any hop presence but the sweetness isn’t over the top. Very rich though.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2005
Couleur cuivrée, pleinement translucide. Belle mousse crémeuse et somptueuse laissant un presque éternel cerceau sur le rebord du verre. Caramel brûlé, sève de bois, biscuits grillés, marron et noisettes, sous une signature très levurée rappelant la croûte d’un pain brun. En bouche, caramel et poires sont toujours au rendez-vous, mais sont cette fois soumis à la teinture à bois, à une faible présence d’acidité et même à une touche d’alcool. Finale étonnamment amère allant presque vers l’astringence. Une forte impression de sel vient bouleverser davantage l’expérience. Corps semi mince, carbonatation plutôt effacé. Une étrange et atypique créature en provenance de Düsseldorf.

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Poured a dark brown color with a small sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of caramel, molasses, nuts, and some dark fruits. Sweet with a light alcohol finish.
