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.

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

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 Trade with Culchiem. Thanks. 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!

Leighton (14674) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2010
Tap at Ginger Man. Pours amber with a soft, white head. Nose holds some earthy hops, along with hints of lightly toasted malts. Flavor is mildly sweet, with some caramel malts, along with some hints of fruit and earthiness. Medium in body and well carbonated. Finish is outrageously dry. An interesting - and pretty good - beer.

Theis (14610) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2010
Bottle (swing-top) at home. Clear dark brown - white head. High malty, grassy, chocolate, fruity notes, light thin body, begining to get bad... but still drinkable. Very simple.

Koelschtrinker (13611) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 4, 2011
Würzig-hopfiger Antrunk bei ausgiebigem Malzunterton. Dieser weitet sich nur wenig aus, da der starke Hopfen intensiver wird und kaum etwas Anderes zulässt. Passend bitter, mittelstark, inspiriert durch den Hopfen. Ungemein hopfig-würziger Abgang, voll und komplex. Lange anhaltend. Speziell!13/12/13/12//12

Oakes (13601) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 At the brewpub on Sticke Day. Golden-brown, bubbly head, very hoppy aroma, and lots of malt richness as well. Rich, chewy character, lots of sweet sugary malts with earthy hops. Quite a bit of bitterness, good dry appetizing finish. Definitely a high quality alt.

Original rating, 2005 for an export version. Golden amber colour. Slightly earthy, caramelly aroma. Chewy, woody bitterness with caramel layers and lots of earthiness. Things ease up a bit towards the finish, right when I want the intensity to increase. Sort of ashy-tasting, just like its younger brother. Solid, but unspectacular. 7-4-7-4-15 = 3.7

11.2 oz. bottle; 02.11.?? Malty caramel aroma with a hint of hop. Ruby apricot color with a beige head. A bit thin. Moderate carbonation. The flavor is gritty caramel, with some notes of coffee. The finish is fairly dry, and the bitter is noticeable, but not heavy. Intriguing.
