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.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2005 Draught. Clear, dark copper colour. Foamy, lacey head. Caramelly, slightly spicy nose. The taste is roastmalty, slightly sweet. Hints of vanilla. Ends in a spicy, bitter finish, which is quite lasting. Smooth mouthfeel, creamy texture. I absolutely love this beer.

Pours lightish redbrown with some head that disperses within a minute. Malty light caramel notes, finishes sharp hoppy. Above average, not wildly impressive. I would try again. Enjoyed chilled from bottle, poured into glass.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Light amber colour with a thin head. Nose is malty and creamy, same for the taste. Sweet in the back and fairly round overall. Not bad, drinkable, thats a plus

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Amber body with off-white head. Caramel, hops, some anise in the nose. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Flavor was moderately sweet and pleasant. Probably one of the better alts I’ve had.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - DEC 18, 2004
Clear light amber brown with thick off-white head. Light malt nose with faint hops. Rich mouthfeel with a sweet start and srying bitter finish. Rich malt flavor with cherry, hops, and vanilla. Really good, wow!

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2004
Here’s a winner. Pours a medium brown with a nice beige head. The aroma is huge of toasted bread and malt. In the flavor there is lots of bread and toasted malt flavor with balancing bitterness that tends to linger.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Spicy Spalt hop aroma, herbal and piney. Clear dark copper, thick beige head. Great balance of nutty malt and piney hops in the flavor. Lingering bitterness, with a slight hop-derived astringency. Medium-full body. A really nicely balanced German ale, very tasty.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2005 Deep amber-red color with a minimal off-white head, this has a nifty nutty sweet malt aroma with a healthy smattering of earthy hops thrown in. Solid roasted malt flavor, not real sweet, with a good hop counterbalance. Even better than their regular alt.

Heh, Grolsch-top bottle with a boring label. Dark reddish brown color with a nice malty aroma. The flavor was malty blending into hoppy.
