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.

Beautiful long neck flip top bottle pours a brown tan color with a small head and no residual lace. The aroma is serious malt sweetness. The flavor is drier than the aroma, with some good caramel flavors mixing with the hops as a balance. The palate is rich and almost "sticky". Overall, I could drink a lot of this.

Bottled 11.2 oz. Mahogany brown. Light roasted malt aroma mixed with some fruit. Good carbonation. Malty with some hoppy bitterness at end. A good clean taste. Multiple tastings.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2012 I bought this because it;s a pretty cool bottle. This puppy is a little old. Bottled Sept of 01! Roasty caramel sweet malts with hints of mint, roastiness and metallic notes. Transparent amber color with an off-white head. Quite thin, roasty, and malty with coffee hints and some DMS to finish. A tad boozy...(6/4/5/3/11)~~~~~~~~~RE-RATE~~~~~~ been 7.5 years since I last visited this beer, and that is incredibly way too long. Bought this bottle at the Davis Beer Shoppe. Bottled on 06/11, which means this is probably 6 months old. The aroma on this is not so good. It’s a bit weird. Some tart, almost lemony notes are present. A bit metallic, too. This beer pours with a massive light tan head and a mostly transparent amber body. Starts a bit sweet, and chewy with some caramel malty sweetness. Light minerals and metallic hints are present in the middle. Finishes with some diacetyl buttery character. Mildly toasted finish. The mouthfeel is a bit flat, and lacking carbonation. I’m not sure if this is just old, or if it’s usually this flawed, but between the poor aroma, overuse of priming sugar, and the diacetyl, it’s not a hit with me.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2004 Bottled. Nut brown. Intensely roasty, sweet, and thick rich maltiness. Notes of licorice and ash, richly hoppy with really bitter finish.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2004
Peculiar chock full of rye and carroway nose with a touch of carmel and a touch of alcohol. Firm mouthfeel with a lot of strange maltieness (more of that rye) pepper, earthy hops and a little alcohol. Very smooth and lingers a while with more maltiness.

TChrome (1432) - Bedford, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2004
Clear amber color with a rapidly diminishing head. The aroma is mostly hoppy and the flavor is likewise bitter and lightly hoppy. It is hard to see what makes this beer such a big dea., though maybe its the top beer in its style class.

Nuffield (3737) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Very cool bottle, to be considered in appearance. Reddish brown, malty appearance with a light fizz but not much head. Bready, German hops aroma, some caramel cookies, French Fries, and Coppertone suntan lotion. Long-lasting bitterness, though fairly well rounded. Moderate palate, smooth. Interesting; a style I don’t know well enough yet.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Clear, dark coppery color, 1/4" ring of dusted brown head. Aroma speaks of little at first, but squeaks up a bit to talk of coffee, cocoa, nuts, a glorious, dark-toned morass. So, drink up! Ah, smoo-oo-ooth, with a deep, roasty, dark tinge on the palate. Delicate and delcicious, tangible touch on the tongue, great cocoa/coffee feel, that is so light, but so right! Tasty, tasty, tasty! Niceness personified in this bottle! Hurray for the lucky pubfolk of Dusseldorf that get to enjoy this freshly flowing! After my critical faculties have retired, it’s nothing but pure enjoyment, full-bodied,long-finish, but so perfectly smooth, I’m left uttering nothing but simple praise: Yu-umm, I’m saying, and wowwy-wow, wow!

bu11zeye (12072) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2004
(Bottle) Packaged in a cool looking flip-top bottle. Pours an amber-brown with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts, and hops. Flavors of caramel, banana-nut bread, malts, and butterscotch. Enjoyable beer.

SpringsLicker (3211) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 23, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2004 Deep glowing brown color, almost cola-like with a minimal tan head that settles into an off white ring at the top of the glass. The aroma is like toasted mashmallows. Caramel flavor with just a touch of bitterness in the finish. Light bodied with a medium mouthfeel. An easy drinking brew.
