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.

Small rubber stopped brown bottle purchased from Armanetti’s, Mundelein, IL. ABV 4.5%. Hazy brown hued having a small, white diminishing head with good lacing. No discernable aroma. Average carbonation. Medium bodied dry palette that starts with sharp bitter, alcoholic taste and finishes with moderate bitter of average duration. Slight bottle leakage when bottled stored on side but carbonation and flavor seemed fine. A good drinkable beer.

Thanks DarkElf! pours a clear amber color with virtually no head and no lacing at all. ARoma is extremely full of caramel and hops with hints of grass, quite smooth and enjoyable to the nose. Flavor is similar, but just not as good as the aroma. Strong caramel and grass tones through-out with a punch of hops at the end. I liked this beer, but thought the aroma was better than the flavor.

Direct from the barrel. Incredibly malt. You could smell the caramel notes from outside the brewery. Thick body that seemed to melt on the tongue. Nice hop in the end with bitterness to balance the malt body. Amber color, creamy white head.

haukur (1798) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - OCT 19, 2005
at the source from the barrell on the Sticke day!; I never knew Altbier could be so complex. Hoppy nose, with hint of caramel and smoke. Extremely complex palate, a lot of hops and malt, smooth mouthfeel with a kind of hoppy smokey finish. This was extremely good and enjoyed in a great atmosphere at the brewpub.

MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2005 (bottle and tap at the brewpub, 6%ABV) Clear amber colour with a foamy slightly off-white medium head. Malty, liquorice-spicy and slightly fruity aroma with a hoppy and cinnamon background. Initial sweet maltiness combines very well with the herbal and flowery hoppiness. Extremely well balanced sweet malty and hopbitter finish. What a gem !!!!

Bottle. Extremely sweet aroma when bottle is popped. Small white head, brown caramel body. Strong caramel in aroma, very sweet, some alcohol. Flavor is not as potent as aroma, but very similar, with alcohol in aftertaste. I would have guessed that the ABV is much higher than 6.5%. Fairly good, but could use a little balance, and it seems more like a bock to me.

(330 ml swing-top bottle: $3.69 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA) While not as impressive looking as the regular Uerige Alt, this one is far more tasty, so I’ll gladly take that trade-off. Malty, sweet, a bit earthy, only slightly bitter, and showing a pleasant nuttiness and a good bit of smokiness in the finish, this is reminding me of a really malty English ale. The aromatic nose is malty, earthy and a bit smoky. Medium in body and lightly carbonated, this goes down all too easy. Light brown in color, just a shade darker than the Uerige Alt, and slightly hazy in appearance. Very little actual head develops during or after the pour, just a sheen actually, but there are clumps of large bubbles that form during the pour. So, not much of a looker, but this is delicious. It’s a beer I just can’t help but continuously take small sips, just to keep constantly replentishing that tasty flavor on my tongue.

Poured a golden brown color. Sweet and fruity with raisins dominating. Dry finish. This and the double sticke are nice beers.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Crisp, wonderful body, and brisk hops. Certainly worth the money, even if you are paying a little extra for the bottle. Truly classic and really unlike anything else coming from germany. Makes me want to rent a flat in Dusseldorf.

Bottle Courtesy of dortmunder. Thanks!
BB 13.02 Bottled 14.01 (?!) Shining ruby/amber. Breadlike heavy aroma. Toasted bread. Full bodied. Sticky (!) palate. Sort of Belgian dubbel, bockbier, old ale combo. My first Sticke after 20 years of beer hunting! Too yeasty for my taste, but maybe it is supposed to be like this. Sweet and quite hoppy taste. If it wasn’t for yeast, this would be very pleasant. I prefer the "ordinary" alt from this brewery.
