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.

Pour out of 375 mL bottle, dark reddish pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, red fruit, hints of spice, yeast, touch of grain. Taste is a mix of caramel, toasted bread, hints of spice, touch of red fruit, hints of yeast, finishing bitter, slightly sweet.

tfredvik (1700) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2015
Hazy, medium brown body with a beige head that laces the glass well and that never gets thinner than a good layer. Fairly strong lager-like aroma of pale malts, caramel and generic fruits. Moderate flavour of caramel, pale malts and light fruity yeast. The moderate bitter finish is accompanied by citrus, herbs and resin. Light sweetness. Despite all the caramel the mouthfeel is crisp, thanks to the nice bitterness. Light body, dry texture, moderate carbonation. A nice beer, although I’m quite certain that altbier will never become my favourite beer style.
[33 cl bottle (and what a stylish bottle!), enjoyed 6 months before BB date, form Vinmonopolet Online]

Foffern (1626) - Bodø, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a clear, deep mahogany colour with a ivory, compact head. Aroma of dried fruit, wood, leather, fudge, grassy hops and some spices and alcohol in the background. More of the same in the flavour where bitter hops are more present. Still there’s a solid, malty touch with lots of leather and caramel. Has a silky and slick mouth feel, and a solid bitterness. A malty beer with a present tones of alcohol and hops. A balanced and quite nice aroma, and not so balanced flavour imo.

ABS (869) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 4, 2015
Pretty 0,33 L bottle from Vinmonopolet’s BU. Copper body with a thick, slightly yellow head. Malt, metal, some caramel and wort nose. Thin, dry mouth feel. Medium carbonation. Grass, hop, some caramel and some metal flavour. Good, refreshing and maybe a bit boring in my opinion.

yngwie (16424) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle. A murky brown beer with a small, dense, light beige colored head. It’s rather malty on the nose, with some dried fruits and noble hops. Grass, pepper notes and piney hints. It’s full-bodied and with a certain warmth, pleasantly carbonated and not too sticky sweet. It’s bitter, with pine cones, some orange zest just without orange if that makes any sense. Caramel maltyness, some roasted hints and a faint touch of prunes. Lasting bitter and malty finish, seemingly the bitterness wins. Sure a nice one, resembling a fine dunkel bock in many ways, but more hop focused and dried. 150131

330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Nesodden. Tiny off-white head. Medium brown body. Aroma is mostly sugar, with some light herbal hops. Mostly sweet on the tongue with high carbonation. Light bitter aftertaste.

ksiwzos (111) - GREECE - JAN 22, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015 Beer from German e-shop Dark amber, not clear, 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!
