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.

Lubiere (11588) - 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 (11539) - 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.

Tap. Pours clear dark amber with a medium, creamy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is spicy, herbal and pine hops with biscuit and straw malt and a clean lager character. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

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.
