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.

Bottle. Poured dark brown with a large frothy white head that was lasting with good lacing. Moderate tart fruit rye aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture. Medium complex balanced flavor with a medium balanced finish of moderate duration. Very interesting beer.

Christian (11786) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2013
RB Odense Early Summer Fun. Copper with a small white head. Rich malty aroma with biscuit and bread, dried fruit and tropical sweet fruit. Malty and fruity flavour with a yeasty hint, herbal hops and a quite bitter finish. A bit thin for what the aroma is promising

thewolf (11496) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours caramelly amber with a slight haze. Fine, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is malty, sweet, some caramel. Good citric and flowery hoppiness as well. A hint of toffee. Medium carbonation, good and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely balanced, lots of sweet maltiness, toasted, caramel, grassy. Long, lingering aftertaste with good toasted caramel and a good deal of bitterness. Really nice and very drinkable.

Lubiere (11170) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2004
Red copper beer with almost no carbonation or head. But the aroma! Nice hops come out, which is surprising for a german brew. Taste is very complex wih a nice malty start and a lingering german hops finish, but everything is there very subtely. This is like the fine beer, very "racée" yet very fresh. Not bored at all...a big big thanks for the MaibockAddict himself .

bierkoning (11150) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle, best until 13.02.05. Dark amber color, small head. Vinous aroma with biscuit. Hoppy, very malty flavor. This beer has a good hop character, but that is cahllanged by the malt, the wine-like character and the biscuit and butterscotch flavors. World class beer!. Thanks Dortmunder, for providing me with this gem.

Black lager tastes and feels generically "wet" with some mild hoppiness. Pretty bland overall. Rated 8/3/09

FatPhil (10893) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 11, 2011
330ml bottle (Bierkompass.de)
6 RIch brown mushroomy aroma. A little savoury
4 Lovely deep hazy brown, small tight light-beige head.
6 Massive grainy husky barky taste - coming in at the malt levels of a doppelbock, but without quite the same level of sweetness. Maybe a touch yeasty, as I let a bit of the sediment come over. Some gentle hops too, but they can’t compete with the malts.
3 Full palate, decent carbonation. Finish carries both the barky aspects from the taste and the gentle bitterness. Feels like it might be a little drying, but doesn’t end up that way in the end, it’s not too sweet or to resiny.
13 Probably my first real Dusseldorf Alt (after 5000+ beers), and maybe I should have aclimatised myself to the style with a normal strength one first. And after this, I’m well up for that - bring’em on. I’d quite happily have this again after having a range of other alts to rerate in context.
