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.

33 cl bottle. A small fine head tops the clear light maple body...thyme and hazelnuts vie with maple for prominence in the lovely, subtle nose...dry bitter herbs hit the front of the tongue, acidic nuttines reaches forward later and just a touch (just enough) brown sugary sweetness takes the edge off the dry bitterness at the finish.

Ernest (6908) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium to dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, caramel, roasted nuts), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough), with notes of brown sugar, raisin. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Quite as-expected (i.e., like the regular Uerige alt, just slightly bigger and richer). Hints at elements of doppelbocks and Belgian brown ales. The higher malt content helps the finishing balance compared to the standard alt. Very tasty, but falls short of exciting.

Thanks to matta for this one. Pours deep copper/ruby with medium frothy white head. Aroma of malt, nuts, cabernet. Tastes malty, nutty, with toffee and dark fruit. Smooth palate.

Pours a one-finger white head that quickly fades leaving no lace. Slightly cloudy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Nose seems to be caramel. Starts and finishes with a balance of malts and hops but there is some sweetness hard to describe this - maybe a combination of a barley wine and a sweet stout for flavor, but it doesn’t look anything like a stout. $4 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

IslandHaole (1159) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - FEB 12, 2005
Medium brown with a touch of haze, beige creamy head, good lacing. Malt and maple, earthy with floral hopping. Nearly a chewey malt with an earthy floral taste. Rich and thick, very tasty!

Bottle. Brown in color, not much head formation at all and minimal lacing left behind. Aroma is raisinish, perhaps a little molasses. Body seems a bit light, soft carbonation. Decent malt and nice hops in the finish. A bit sour. I am not that impressed with this, perhaps an oxidized bottle

Bottle dated 25/10. I’m spending my Super Bowl watching time enjoing this and <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/uerige-alt/7836/ Alt. Have to say, this may be a bit over-hyped. Pours a foamy head; more settled than the UAlt. The malts are a bit smoother, like this has gotten some good aging in, and the hops have mellowed out, too, with bitterness only showing up in the aftertaste. There is a definite feel of more alcohol than the regular UAlt. I had expected something roasty or smoky, but couldn’t really catch it. May be flatter, or just supposed to me more subtle and mellowed.

Clear, dark amber color with medium sized tan head. Aroma has roasted malt, caramel, maple. Flavor is slightly bitter, creamy. A good, solid alt, but nothing amazing

desurfer (1262) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2005
Pours a clear dark amber with a pillowy tan head. Aroma of smoky malt and a bit of hops. Flavor is surprisingly watery, with some caramel maltiness and German hops in the background. Tastes much less than 6.5%. Finishes sweet and moderately dry.

I was very excited to see this beer on the shelf the other day! Late last spring I picked up a bottle of the regular Uerige Alt and man, I loved the stuff! It was pretty pricey, as was this at $4.45 a bottle but man it’s freaking tasty! I was told that the Florida only got 14 cases for the entire state, and one of my local homebrew shops bought up 5 of those, which should last another couple of weeks.

Pours a dark copper body with a bountiful light tan head. The aroma and flavor offer a full dose of caramel malt and certainly a heap of pilsner malt. Slightly toasty, toffee notes, toasted wheat bread similarities. The hops are very refined.. I think they are more present in the aroma and then again in the lingering finish than anything else. Nice oaky woodsy suggestions. - Man.. Something just made me think about an old girlfriend I had many years ago… Every time I think of oak like flavors I always think of her for some odd reason. Maybe because we did a lot of camping and drinking beer around the camp fire…. I’m a strange dude aren’t I! - Anyway, The finish this a delicate inter-tangled combo of toasted malt and dry tarty hops. Now this is a beer I could drink year round and enjoy each and every drop of without ever feeling routine.
