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.

Cobra (1100) - - APR 10, 2005
33 cl brown, super longneck bottle with swing top and ceramic cap. Bottled on 1/31/05. Poured out a distressed leather color, with a minimal white, foamy head. Left a smattering of lacing down the sides of the glass. Aromas are of lactic wheat malts, slight smokiness, sweet caramels, dusty barn, well worn saddle leather. Flavors are of strong malts, some smoke, sweet background malts as well. No hop aromas, but an earthy hop bitterness to it. Medium mouthfeel, dry, somewhat tannic finish. Decent beer overall.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 1, 2005
Bottle, goblet. Dough, cookie, nutty, bread. Solid German caramel malt base. Dry, floral hops. Very balanced, very pleasant. Intense amber hue with copper highlights. Smallish, white, foamy head. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter flavor becomes a moderately acidic, moderately bitter finish. Finishes spicy and dry. Medium body, smoothg texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: just incredibly drinkable. Almost exactly what I’ve been expecting from this style and never found before.

badgerben (4651) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Dark brown color with a very thin head. Dry wheat aroma. Dry and dusty taste of wheat and barley with, oddly enough, a vague taste of bacon. Different, but pretty tasty.

pivnizub (9482) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2012 A gem among the german "ales", dark ruby coloured; extremely full bodied, sweetish in the beginning, a "warm welcome" from the brewer; astonishingly easy to drink for a beer of this strength (6,5%) ! Superbly rounded with a long, long hoppy aftertaste, caused by umbelled hops. Served only on two days a year. Worth a journey ! Re-rated: (Sticke-Day 18/10/05) One of the most pefect brews You can find in Europe !!!!!!

The gold standard for alt beers. Malty with a nice hop background. My favorite beerstyle and my favorite beer from this style.

Hazy amber, off-white lacing creamy head. Herbs (juniper) and licorice in the aroma. Smotth blend of roast, mineral notes, and raw herbal hops. Full body, mellow sparkling mouthfeel. Subtle juniper and licorice aftertaste. Thanks to Dortmunder for this speciality!

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.
