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}.

Brentv (533) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 30, 2013
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.

Foffern (1499) - Bodø, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2015
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.

mathieuc (2484) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2015
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.

Minderbinder (2803) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle 11,2 oz. Pours very deep brown with low beige head. Aroma is of fruits, molasses, bread, caramel, plums. Taste is of fruits, molasses, cardboard, lots of vegetal hops, bitterness. Palate: Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Overall: Quite tasty, malty. Feels a tad old.

jawe (4) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2015 does not count
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.

czar (6211) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2015
bottle shared by mathieuc., thanks bro! pours unclear medium dark brown, burnt orange tint, with a small off-white cap, little retention and lacing. sweet woodsy caramel maltiness - hint of smoke, roasted raisins - rotten red fruits, minty, very floral and perfumey finish - unsure if booze or some sort of spice moderately low carbonation, full body - very thick; cloying, fragrant and perfumey finish. yuck.

Do I like an altbier? Turns out I do. This has a nice raisin taste with lots of alcohol.

King_Alex_II (791) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 11, 2015
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.

anstei (531) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Much much stronger than the regular Sticke, no balanced left either. Boozy, sticky sweet, very bitter, but less flavours altogether.

SinH4 (1399) - Garching, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2015
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.
