Carnival comes but once a year - and you can only enjoy Sticke beer at Uerige twice a year. It contains more malt and hops and has a higher alcoholic content than normal Altbier. And our guests appreciate it! In earlier days it used to be whispered hand over mouth that Uerige was serving Sticke again because the master brewer had portioned the ingredients too generously. With today’s fully-automated operation, this could not happen. So Sticke beer is brewed intentionally - and this certainly doesn’t negatively effect either its quality or taste.

The two dates every year are always the same. The third Tuesday in January and October are the two Sticke days.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2005 Hazy mahogany with a medium frothy light brown head. Sweet aroma of cookie, dough, caramel, hazelnut and plum. Medium velvety body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Mostly sweet flavor of caramel, hazelnut, plum, raisin, smoke, and brown sugar. Very smooth and drinkable. Very good.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Brown pour. Quarter inch white head. Inviting appearance. Aroma more malt than hops with some sweet notes. Medium body. Malts dominate until the finish where hop flavor creeps in. Underlying sweetness throughout. very good, very drinkable.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 At the brewpub on Sticke Day. Golden-brown, bubbly head, very hoppy aroma, and lots of malt richness as well. Rich, chewy character, lots of sweet sugary malts with earthy hops. Quite a bit of bitterness, good dry appetizing finish. Definitely a high quality alt.

Original rating, 2005 for an export version. Golden amber colour. Slightly earthy, caramelly aroma. Chewy, woody bitterness with caramel layers and lots of earthiness. Things ease up a bit towards the finish, right when I want the intensity to increase. Sort of ashy-tasting, just like its younger brother. Solid, but unspectacular. 7-4-7-4-15 = 3.7

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2005 Bottled: Poured caramelly red with a big off white, big-bubbled head. Aroma of roasted nuts and some wheaty-yeast. Flavor of roasted malts some hops with a slightly bitter finish. Palate was dry.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 16, 2005
33 cl bottle. A small fine head tops the clear light maple body...thyme and hazelnuts vie with maple for prominence in the lovely, subtle nose...dry bitter herbs hit the front of the tongue, acidic nuttines reaches forward later and just a touch (just enough) brown sugary sweetness takes the edge off the dry bitterness at the finish.

Ernest (6350) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium to dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, caramel, roasted nuts), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough), with notes of brown sugar, raisin. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Quite as-expected (i.e., like the regular Uerige alt, just slightly bigger and richer). Hints at elements of doppelbocks and Belgian brown ales. The higher malt content helps the finishing balance compared to the standard alt. Very tasty, but falls short of exciting.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Thanks to matta for this one. Pours deep copper/ruby with medium frothy white head. Aroma of malt, nuts, cabernet. Tastes malty, nutty, with toffee and dark fruit. Smooth palate.

Pours a one-finger white head that quickly fades leaving no lace. Slightly cloudy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Nose seems to be caramel. Starts and finishes with a balance of malts and hops but there is some sweetness hard to describe this - maybe a combination of a barley wine and a sweet stout for flavor, but it doesn’t look anything like a stout. $4 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - FEB 12, 2005
Medium brown with a touch of haze, beige creamy head, good lacing. Malt and maple, earthy with floral hopping. Nearly a chewey malt with an earthy floral taste. Rich and thick, very tasty!
