3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
1 year old bottle at home. Has a hazy brown color with a creamy beige head. Aroma of grassy hops, pine, bread, brown sugar, leather, wood and alcohol. The flavor has more pine, wood, harpix, licorice and maple syrup. Has a slick and silky mouth feel, full-bodied and a medium to heavy bitterness. A tasteful and surprisingly hoppy beer. A little unbalanced IMO.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a medium unclear dark brown with a small beige head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of oxidized caramel, alcohol, bread and some raisins. Taste is rich and loaded with caramel and butterscotch. Moderately bitter and lightly boozy. Body is full and syrupy, quite filling. Overall a pretty nice double altbier I guess, well deserving of its top-50 position I’m sure.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Color is reddish/copper. Quite intensive aroma, a mixture of raisins, dried plum and toffee malt. Feels oily in the mouth. First sip is a wall of sweet fruit and toasted malt. ust before that getsd annoying which is the case with a lot of stonger beers, the right amount of bitter hops balances the taste. Highly recommended. On the sweet, malty side of the taste spectrum.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown color with a little foam. Hoppy nose with a boozy touch. The taste is boozy and has a earthy hoppy part that reminds more of an IPA or double IPA than an alt. The aftertaste is light sticky.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Much much stronger than the regular Sticke, no balanced left either. Boozy, sticky sweet, very bitter, but less flavours altogether.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown appearance with tan head. Aroma is less hoppy as the Sticke. More sweetness, some murky cellar feeling. Soft carbonation, warming bitterness in th finish. Overdone. I like regular Sticke better.
