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.

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.

Thx. to Thirstybird / Rian? Right? for this one. 50 cl. swintop bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2013. Total whalez bro! Pours burned sugar caramel. Smells very sweet, quite sugary, caramel, toffee and sweet herbs. Fuller than a lot of the similar German beers, caramel, toffee, toffee, dark fruits, plenty of brown sugar, malty, biscuit, generous spices in the back. Fuller than quite a few German lagers, slick. Fine brewsky.

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.

jcr (2208) - 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 (1201) - 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
