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.

JStax (2857) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle. Poured a darker hazy copper with a large, beige head of foam. Aroma has notes of fig and raisin on top of a hefty malt bill. Taste is sweet with lots of dark and dried fruits. Full bodied and thick mouthfeel. Very good.

574deadzone (997) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Pours a dense, opaque rusty deep amber with a thinner beige head that, with a vigorous swirl, produces about a finger and half but settles down fairly quickly to a ring and film, leaving just a touch of soapy lace. Subdued yet nuanced nose of dark caramel, raisin toast, apricot, a little cherry pie, some light spice and herbal notes, and a touch of cellar. Quite sweet with some bitterness to help balance. Medium bodied yet rich, softer carb, slick, with a longer drying toasty herbal finish. A solid brew, well made, definitely requires some study, as it is not in your face. Good once in a while brew due to price.

Bottle at home. Pour is deep amber with a frothy tan head and great lacing. Roasted caramel, slightly floral, earthy, bready, lightly grassy, dark fruits, grainy, and husky aroma. Taste is dirty, earthy, grassy, big caramel, light roast, bready, rye, and fruit peel with a medium bitter finish.

Lilja (1553) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2013
Smak och doft av humle, malt, jäst med toner av karamell och vingummi. God sötma med bra efterbeska. Äntligen någon tysk som sticker ut.

prawlie (1107) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2013
Bottle at Beer Revolution in Oakland, poured into a long glass. Opaque dark orange-brown with a creamy/bubbly head. Lightly bitter, malty, smooth and tasty. Also has sweetness and a hint of caramel. Complex. Pleasant light malt aroma.

jookos (1986) - FINLAND - APR 14, 2013
Bottle (within BBE). Brown, cloudy. Nose is strong malty, with brown soft nuttyness and a bit of sweet(malty)ness - somewhat reminescent of barley wine, but not as extreme or sweet. Body is medium full and a bit dry, with a good bitterness. Has a bit of woody/porty notes, nuttiness, brown malt flavours and even some light chocolate. Very flavourful brew.

Dedollewaitor (13761) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 Trade with Culchiem. Thanks. Pours dark unclear amber- rather muddy with a small white head. It has been stading up in the fridge for a week. Nose is yeast and malts. Already a little scared with it not being entirely fresh or too yeasty. Baking yeast, dough, caramel , winegums and grass. Its smooth and full bodied. Yeasty bitter finish. Overall a bit disappointed as I really liked their Nicht Filtriert and regular Alt. It’s too yeasty!

Bottle. Murky brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is mild malt and caramel. Flavour is slightly bitter fruity malt, some chocolate on a very dry finish. Texture is smooth velvet, soft carbonation.

freeofthoughts (647) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottled on 6-11 says 6% alc. Bottle opened with a POP! Pours a dark strawberry blond with floaties and rocky lasting head. Sweet malty aroma similar to a dunkel with a nice addition of herbal hops. The flavor is grainy semi sweet with a healthy barley kick and herbal noble hops with a drying flowery finish. Carbonation is filling making it a meal in a glass and brightening the murky grainy palate and lingering hop flavors. Sort of a dark German pale ale to reference something. Nice brew, very palatable and robust for the lower abv.

Clear red/bronw pour leaning toward red. Small short lived off white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel and malt. Taste follows aroma with bitter balanced in. Mouthfeel is watery than I expected.
