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.

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.

tom10101 (2698) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle (330 ml). App. 1 year old. Dark amber with a small tan head and some lacing. Aroma of caramel, malt, noble hops, slight fruits and nuts. Taste is moderately sweet with some fainted spicy notes, caramel/malt, mineral, fainted hops. Thin to medium body. Good Altbier. It’s probably better fresher though.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2013
Sehr trübes Braun mit reichlich feinporigem Schaum. Ein lieblich süßer Malzduft nach Rosinen eines Christstollen vermengt mit grasig-harzigem Aromahopfen. Vollmundig und schwer im Antrunk. Die süßen Rosinen am Anfang weichen einer zunehmend trockener werdenden Würze mit Kakaonoten und Zartbitteranklängen. Der Abgang ist Uerige-typisch staubtrocken hopfendominant mit pfeffrigem Einschlag. Eine delikate Holzigkeit ist auch zu schmecken. Ein ausdrucksstarkes Alt für den Abend. Dat leckere Dröppke!

Lovely looking German brew. Nice brown body and pretty beige head. Nose of malt and earth. Tastes of earth, malt, light hops, woods, floral, very drying finish.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 19/I/13 - 33cl swing top bottle @ RBBWG 2013 - BB: 13/III/13 - bottled: 11/I/13 (2013-70) Thanks to Thirstybird for sharing the bottle!

Clear red brown beer, small off-white head, little stable, bit adhesive. aroma: caramel, toast, bit nutty, red lace candy, fruity, sugary. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: little bitter, toast, hay, grains, stable, pretty dry. Aftertaste: some caramel, bitter dry hops, cocoa powder, very hoppy bitter ending. Probably tasted at the wrong moment though. Should have come earlier in the tasting.

Clear dark amber colour, white head. Malty aroma, hops, caramel, apricot, quite fruity, somewhat herbal. Bitter flavour, hops, lightly reminding of bile, sweet touch, caramel and fudge. Bitter finish, hops, light sweet lingering malts.
I like this one! Have to go one day to drink it fresh.

12/30/12. Small flip-top bottle. Lightly hazed brown pour with a small tan head that cuts to a ring and laces lightly. Rich aroma of brown sugar and molasses with some dark fruits and bready grains. Lightly sweet flavor with more brown sugar, molasses, fruits, and breadiness. Rich and tasty.
