COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2006
Very hoppy though light aroma much like an APA, though with touches of eastern european hops. Pours burnt orange with nice though fizzy head. Taste doesn’t match up with APA so much as a pilsner in that it has nice hopping but a balanced hop backbone that is medium thickness though still assertive.

Bottle. Had this a while back, am now updating my "rated" list. Poured a nut-brown, nutty pleasant aroma. Had a good head, and excellent flavour. Another very drinkable beer!

chilehead (186) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JAN 21, 2006
Pours slightly haze nut brownwith an off-white head and good head retention. Nose is of a malty brown with some wood and tobacco notes. Mouthfeel is medium with moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Flavors are more malty than hoppy, nutty with a bit of roast. Fairly straightforward and pleasant.

Old notes from a tasting last year. Brown pour, decent head. Nutty malty aromas, and a bit doughy. Sweet malty flavors, some dough/bread, some nuts, some wood. Clean finish. Fairly enjoyable, and surprisingly bigger than I expected for an altbier.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2006
Bottle shared by <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank> beerhugger, thanks Steve. Copper in colour, off-white head (good retention), some lace. The aroma is malty (cookies, caramel), some citrus hops and some smoke. The flavour was malty (cookies, bready, caramel), slightly sweet, cirtus hops, nutty. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a lingering hop bite, dry. Quite nice.

dwyerpg (5430) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Actually had this a couple of months ago, just misplaced the rating sheet. Faint aroma, pretty headless. Much lighter taste and pretty malty compared to the doppel. Haps come through only in the aftertaste. Cloudy amber color. A decent beer, but no match for the doppelsticke.

demitriustown (1181) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Pours a dark copper with minimal head. Aroma is dry white wine, caramel, thickly malted, a nice stickiness to it, a little nutty I think similar to cashews. Caramel, slight nuttiness, bitter sting when first hits your tongue then spreads into a semi-sweet chocolate taste. Palate is kind of light with a subtle stickiness. Unique experience with a nice Alt. I wish I had a bigger bottle of this.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Lots of sweet malt in the aroma. Caramel, brown sugar and molasses. Light amber in color with a head that is both creamy and bubbly. Has a deep fruity sweetness in the fore followed by a crisp, but tongue coating flavor of peanut skins. Never come across that before in a beer.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - DEC 15, 2005
(Bottle, "bottled on 31.01.") Pours a brownish amber with a smallish biege head. Aroma: maltiness plus some brown sugar and caramel. Pretty good lacing. Great body, mouthfeel nice and chewy. Flavor: reserved malt caramel sweetness with some sourishness in finish - don’t think this is a bad bottle, so guess the sourishness is supposed to be there.

wow, a very complex drink indeed. caramel and malty nose, malt & fruits flavor with a very complex semi-sweet tounge as it finished with a unique, sour twist in the finish that quickly dissapears with no aftertaste... it’s really strange, but this is a very, very well put together, unique drink.
