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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

swatskee (17) - Ohio, Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2005
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.

Had one of these at the Winking Lizard. Should have kept the bottle. Light floral and fruit notes dominate the subtle but very pleasant nose. Caramel tones leak out a bit as brew warms. The brew pours a dark color characteristic of mahogany or walnut. The tall off white frothy head is mostly lasting with good lace character. The brew starts nice and malty with moderate acidity and exceptional balance with a nice long full finish. The medium creamy and soft body has an astringent feel to the finish. Exceptional offering.

Terminus (3597) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 6, 2005
bottle-thanks whaleman for the recomendation! pours copper with a small soapy off-white head and sparse lacing. aromatically, this beer has alot of complexity for the style-carmel, cheeries, fresh cut wood, toasty maltness, some faint cinammon, and spice chracacter with some nice chocolate notes. nice body-full and slick. flavors are very malty, chocolate, light bitterness from some earthy hops. very nice and probably the best alt i have ever had!

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2005
33cL flip-top. Copper and clear. Medium head. Big malt aroma, some grassiness and breadiness. Wow, the flavor is so clean with the big malt and the bitterness at the end is very nice. Medium body. It is very well balanced with an excellent palate with just the right carbonation. Excellent beer! Can’t wait to finally make it to Dusseldorf.
