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

Dark red pour from the bottle. Little to no head. Minimal lacing. Big aroma of plums and dark fruits and brown sugar. Flavor is sweet, plum, raisins, dark fruits, brown sugar, with a distinct bitterness that carries into the finish. This is very much like a barley wine. A big beer that needs to be sipped.

11.2 ounce swing top bottle. It pours a very dark brown with reddish hues with a 1 finger head of tannish foam. Big caramel malt in the nose, very sweet smelling, kind of a maple syrup sweetness. Sweet, for sure in the taste, it also brings a close to bitter dark chocolate flavour that’s very nice; cuts the sweetness. I’m getting some raisin like flavour and hints of other dark fruits. I’d call this full bodied as it’s very thick and luxurious to my palate. Lightish carbonation. Wow, this is a grand brew, very enjoyable and satisfying.

Had a bottle in St. Louis. Dark brown cloudy lots of yeast. Aroma is malt, dark fruit, alcohol. Flavor is much more dark fruit, far less malt, more alcohol than the alt. Big mouthfeel. Big strong high alcohol beer.

"Almost get run soaked raisins in the aroma. So dense. Figgy molasses, bready brown sugar, full flavored and full bodied. The flavor shows a bit more alcohol than the sublime nose, but this is still likely the best and biggest alt I’ve ever had."

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2014
Uerige’s strongest Alt, the ’premium’ version of Uerige Sticke, so to speak. Seasonal beer made with Munich malts and a secret ’hop tea’; very heavy for the style. Light beige, stable, dense, sticky head, colour a very dark brownish bronze, clear with subtle sparkling. Rich aroma of sweet fruits and bitter spices, very agreeable perfume, plums, chocolate, pear syrup, sage, old ’jenever’, pine resin, whisky, walnuts, coffee beans, jute, bark. Taste is Altbier all around but in a reinforced kind of way, with red fruits, thick nutty and chocolatey malts, silky, slick mouthfeel, pure with medium carbo, very spicy and earthy hop bitterness in the finish reinforced, but nowhere hindered, by a warming bourbon-like alcohol effect. This was very memorable - one of the best German beers I had so far and certainly the best Alt.

drpimento (2224) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 24, 2014
The beer comes in the fliptop bottle and I think the seal is broken as the beer is slightly flat. Still had a very rich fragrant malt yeast ride bread molasses aroma. Almost no head no lace, and a slightly cloudy brownish amber color. Flavor is like aRoma, carbonic tang is surprisingly strong considering how mild carbonation is; bitterness is quite strong against the rich maltiness. I'd like to try a fresher or a better sealed bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (2045) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 11, 2014
Shared by KyotoLefty at the Hanshin Seed Event. An opaque almost muddy brown pour. Great nose of candied plum, port, sweet dark fruits. Medium to light bodied. The taste is malty, boozy, sweet caramel, dark pitted fruits. A bit of that tannic oaky quality to it. Very interesting.

Bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, toffee, nuts, raisins, spicy notes, toasted malts, some more general bitterness to the finish. Good, not great.

11.2 oz bottle poured into straight stemmed glass. Pours a nice, dark, chestnut brown with no head at all - just a tiny patch of foam. Some particles can be seen floating in the brew. Aromas are very interesting: some deep roasted/caramel malts, resinous hops, ripe grapes, a tad of alcohol. Taste is rather sweet, but well "contained" by the brew’s hoppy character. Body is medium-full, texture pretty oily/slick, and carbonation almost flat. Finish is rather bitter, and medium in lenght. There is also, however, a presence of a post-taste which is also bitter and which lasts pretty long in fact. Overall: a fantastic brew as well as discovery for me. I had never drank a Doppelsticke before, and I guess that if I ever drink any others, this one will have set the bar. And that bar is pretty high!
