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.

The color of a dark penny with a sluggish head. The caramel malt is strong in the aroma, smells like it could be a little oxidized. There’s a hefty maltiness in the flavor and a decent bitterness in the finish. I’d really like to try this in Germany and see how it compares close to home.

Malty, reddish beer. An overpriced offering, in my opinion. Interesting, but nothing great.

Brownish red (MilkmanDan hit the nail on the head "tea-colored", very nice dense off-white head. Glass lacing is very nice also. Light malty caramel aroma along with a hint of some funk, the good kind. The flavor is roasted malt sweetness and bitterness, a good dose of hops followed by some maltiness. The hops are surprisingly strong but lead to an overall pleasing experience. he body is surprisingly light given the color and the overall level of flavor complexities. Very nice beer.

Darker than I expected, tea-colored, dark brown-red. Head is light brown. Good malty nose, nice toffee, bit of raisin character as well. Nice palate, full and creamy, not quite enough carbonation but still works quite well in the mouth. Great malty character, bit nutty, lots of toffee and butterscotch. Hops come on at end, good toasty bitters. Darn good stuff.

At thedm and hotstuff’s place. And for the record I think this was from Silphium(Brad) not myself. A clear reddish orange body with a decent sized white head on top. Sweet malty aroma with fruits in there too. A grapefruity and hops taste. Also there were notes of carmel as well. Nice.

Deep copper with a small thin white head. Rich caramel aroma, lingering sweet taste, malty ending. Came in a strangely shaped bottle.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2006 Really green hops proliferate but never berate the tastebuds...Caramel malt coherence and grassy yet subdued hop inherence...Curious herbal tea bitterness develops in the end of this hoppier than usual German...A rather sweet pint when slightly aged, but always a well-crafted sticke...

After the Fort Wayne Ale Fest 2004, BigBadBear, Flemdawg, JSquire, Hotstuff, and Silphium came over to my place for a tasting. This was our tenth brew of the evening provided by Jim (Flemdawg). This brew poured a small sized head of fine to large sized mostly lasting bubbles. The body was a uncarbonated transparent brown color. The aroma was mildly vinous with a caramel malt brown beer scent to it. The mouth feel was vinous and strong from start to finish and especially so in the aftertaste. The flavors contained notes of caramel malt and brown malts.

I picked this bottle up @ Rozi’s in Lakewood, OH for $3.99. Aroma had a floral bouquet and the entire bottle poured nicely into my Bitburger glass. Dark brown color and a hoppy flavor with hints of smoke and caramel. Alcohol was well hidden, I could taste yeast undertones. This beer lived up to it’s cost and its not just the bottle you are paying for. I am going to re-use the bottle for home brewing unless somebody has a way to make it into a bong. Thanks to bkelly68 for pointing it out to me.

Malty, caramelly aroma with creamy notes of hazelnuts...this came from petrofied wood color with a thin head...thin but nutty & toffee flavors abound...spicey hoppiness, growing finishing bitterness..interesting.
