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.

Geruch röstig und nach deutschen Hopfen. Weniger Aroma als das Doppelsticke, aber sehr rund.

Saeglopur (1434) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de.
Dark copper to brown, clear body, with a medium, creamy, beige head.
Aroma of sweet berries, caramel, marzipan, dried fruits and roast.
Taste with about the same aromas, but less sweeter and with more roasty notes.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a medium carbonation and it finishes roasty, slightly bitter, sweet malty and slightly hoppy.

Nice! Full, but quaffable and with nice hoppy notes. The nose is quite unique for this style, while the taste is more typical for an Altbier, but a pretty beyond average one!

unclemike (2747) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Taste was sweet, full bodied and rich. Caramel color with a smallish head. Nice and malty with medium hop bite. Finish was very clean and I wish I had another.

Bill Becker (652) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Dark red and brown, good head of foam that shrinks slowly. Got good lacing. Smells hoppy, almost if not a fruity sort of hoppiness going on. Some bread. Nice hoppy fruity taste with a backbone of bread malt. Also some light caramel malt. Medium body, lightish co2. Pretty easy drinker and I love the swing tops their beers come in. Worth more purchases.

Bottle shared by Dan at BFD Friday Grainy sweet bready malt and light fruit. Decent beer but not my favorite style.

"Musty aroma of malt, fruit-mainly raisins and figs, good looking with huge head and everlasting lacing. Semi sweet, lightly roasted and hopped. Very pleasant Caramel aftertaste."

douglas88 (7796) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2014
11.2 ounce bottle from ABV. Pours a dark copper color, almost ruby, with a medium white head. A sweet nose of berries and toffee. A sweet malty base, dusty at times, big robust fruit, a bit of blueberries, a bit of cherries, some metallic bitterness, toffee, some light leaves. Pretty awesome. This, drink a liter I could. Awesome brew.
