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.

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.

mcberko (13502) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2011
330mL bottle, side-by-side with Doppel Sticke, pours a very murky dark brownish orange with a small ring of off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, wet bread, lager yeast, toasted nuts and some dark fruits. Flavour is quite nutty, woody and a bit herbally - wet bread, toasted nuts, some slight caramel notes, some dry fruit and some slight floral notes. Finishes dry, semi-bitter, bready and nutty - medium astringency lingers. Quite good, though I don’t understand the hype on this one.

FatPhil (13313) - 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.

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.

Lubiere (12702) - 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 .

Christian (12623) - 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

(Bottle) Packaged in a cool looking flip-top bottle. Pours an amber-brown with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts, and hops. Flavors of caramel, banana-nut bread, malts, and butterscotch. Enjoyable beer.
