Pours slightly haze nut brownwith an off-white head and good head retention. Nose is of a malty brown with some wood and tobacco notes. Mouthfeel is medium with moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Flavors are more malty than hoppy, nutty with a bit of roast. Fairly straightforward and pleasant.

Bottle shared by the_Captain. ver complex aroma of brown sugar, malt, dark fruit and b yeast. Didn’t really taste like it smelled but got better as it got warmer. Nice hazy brown color with an off white creamy head. tasted like brown sugar and grass or earthy notes. My only complaint was that it was very very dry. Kind of reminded me of an English bitter but very dry finish. Good brew though.

Great bottle, definitely a keeper! Pours maple syrup brown with a quickly settling off-white head. Aroma is rich and inviting with sweet malt presenting itself on a background of floral hops while notes of alcohol drift in and out of the nose. Flavor is sweet and floral; malty with understated hops character and teasing alcohol nibbles. In a word, intoxicating. Uerige Sticke is a fantastic seasonal beer and I feel quite fortunate to have found a bottle this afternoon. This is a beer that I could definitely see myself stocking up on around the holidays.

Bottle into goblet. Hazy dark brown, faint whisper of a head. Sweet nose, suggests light brown sugar or caramel. Hoppier than expected in the mouth, with grapefruit and Pune notes n malt congee through in the middle some, and finishes with more hops n

12oz bottle from lee’s liquor: pours a deep red with very silky smooth looking foam, but not much of it. some aromas going on i can’t quite identify, but good. fantastic flavor from the dark malts and hops, they hit the nail right on the head. powerful flavor, but not at all overpowering and a very tasty drink and a very distinct aftertaste. i’ll be getting more of this.. plus i like the bottles. ;)

Direct from the barrel. Incredibly malt. You could smell the caramel notes from outside the brewery. Thick body that seemed to melt on the tongue. Nice hop in the end with bitterness to balance the malt body. Amber color, creamy white head.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beatiful brown, stumpy-bottomed bottle with flip-cap. Clear, copper-amber with a wispy head. Lightly caramel aroma with toasted butterscotch note and earthy malt complexity. Initailly clean, smooth and slightly metallic. Buttery, caramel note and a succinct of sweetness. As it warms, hops become apparent in a fragrant, slightly bittering effect, resulting in a rounded, delightful beer. cheers

One of my favorites. Drink slightly chilled or else you won’t get the full flavor.
