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.

Great bottle, definitely a keeper! Pours maple syrup brown with a quickly settling off-white head. Aroma is rich and inviting with sweet malt presenting itself on a background of floral hops while notes of alcohol drift in and out of the nose. Flavor is sweet and floral; malty with understated hops character and teasing alcohol nibbles. In a word, intoxicating. Uerige Sticke is a fantastic seasonal beer and I feel quite fortunate to have found a bottle this afternoon. This is a beer that I could definitely see myself stocking up on around the holidays.

Bottled on 25.10. Code 11 26

I have to admit, I’m a bit of a "bottle whore" and that’s what attracted me to this beer... a well crafted and unique swing-top with sparse labels and a healthy dose of raised lettering in the glass, including a line of braille at the bottom! Excellent!

Appearance was an almost-mahogany body, slightly hazed with a creamy, little head. Aromas were well malted with raisin, honey & caramel over grains and earthiness... an overall impression of a sweet breakfast cereal. Nicely balanced flavors with sweet malts proving dominance. Smooth and slightly thick on the tongue with a touch of alcohol at the end that made me smile. Quite delicious. Hoping to find a bigger bottle.

Pours a brilliantly clear ruby amber color that is topped by a frothy, thinnish, tan colored head. The aroma is quite fruity with notes of brandy, and rum, hints of strawberry, citrus and lightly spicy notes. Actually a fairly interesting aroma that is still intriguing after these 6 months. The taste is lightly sweet and fairly malty with notes of caramel. This is quite fruity as well with notes of cherry, raisins, and a bit of strawberry and some notes of bergemot as well. For some reason the fruity character in an Alt I have always associated as an interesting mix of hop and malt character. This has held up much better, in the voyage across the Atlantic, than the regular Alt did, though it stills suffers quite a bit from the voyage.

Various layers of sweet brown things; caramel, brown sugar, maybe a touch of cinammon... I love this beer. I prefer the taste of DoppelSticke but I’m not always in the mood for an 8.5% beer. Then again, this is deceptive at 6.5% and could probably get you in trouble. That’s my kinda trouble, though...

Deep brown color with a sweet malty caramel aroma. Malty with a bit of toffee. Some musty dusty hop flavours with some good bitterness.

Slightly sweet, crackerjack aroma, soma caramel. Nice amber in color with a quick, fluffy white head. Caramel malts are playing nicely with classic, noble hops Finished fairly quickly with lingering hops. Thanks to bkelley for the brew!

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUL 20, 2005
11.2 oz. custom bottle. Pleasant, nutty, sweet aroma, some caramel and hazelnut with hints of creamy toffee, flowery, spicy hops and cookieish malts. Some vague fruits lurking in the background. Rusty dark orange color with a slight, fine head. Flavor depth is highly impressive, with plenty of toasty, succulent, sugary, bready malts up front and bright, tangy, salty, herbal, fruity, spicy bitterness underneath, intertwined with notes of butterscotch and leafy hops. Light, refreshing, peppery mouthfeel with a low level of effervescence, body is medium. Incredibly drinkable and a fine Alt.

Brown, with a thick tan head. Spicy aroma - cinnamon, nutmeg, maybe? Peppery and earthy, with a piney undertone. Very tasty, with a surprisingly hoppy finish. Thanks Springslicker!

Marcello’s Wine Market, Baton Rouge, La. - long necked 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a dark copper color with a thin, but long lasting off-white head that leaves thick, sticky lacing. Aroma is sweet and caramel like with hints of toffee and cotton candy. Very good caramel flavor with some bitter chocolate undertones. Same bitter notes that are found in many of my favorit Bristish session ales. Turns a tad metallic near the end and just a bit thinnish, but still a very flavorful Alt.
