COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

jcr (2112) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle. Hazy brown body with a thick, frothy beige head. Aroma of light roast, caramel, bready malts, nuts, grass, raisin. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter with the bitterness lingering. Thin to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Delicate balance, refined roasted malts. Great finesse.

GothGargoyle (933) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
Really cool looking bottle. Pours a relatively clear ruby amber with a small pale head that leaves a small amount of lacing. Aroma is toffee, malt, fig, chestnut, plum, hint of wood. Light body but definitely some complexity on the palate, with a slight burnt sugar bitterness on the finish. Taste is burnt sugar, fig, chestnut, date, wood.

HenryXXX (201) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
The beer pours a watery rootbeer color with pretty much no head. The nose has a funky malty wood smell with a sour undertone of red fruit. The smell finishes up with a spicy, boozy wooden barrel. The pallet is a bit watery with wood, spicy, hops, malt and finishes up with bitter hops on the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rbrazell (1444) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle from Knightly Spirits. Clear, deep amber pour with a large frothy tan head. Nose is sweet caramel malts, nuttiness, fig newtons, herbs and flowers. Flavor not as sweet as I was expecting. Modest caramel, more nuttiness, raisins and a floral, earthy bitterness. Lighter carbonation and a medium light body. Pretty solid and very drinkable.

BVery (5612) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle. Opaque deep brown pour with a monster light tan head. Bready, toasty malts dominate this one, good heft on the palate with a bit of carbonation zing. Very nice brew - rich and enjoyable. Rating #2900.
