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.

Gigantic foamy billowing head. The swing top actually popped and spritzed almost like champagne. Altbier? Seasonal? Hmm ... hops presence on the nose with a sly mix of sweeter malt. Good combo - almost like a solid IPA mixed with a top brown sweet ale. Sharp clear tawny hue. Fresh crisp finish. Cool sleek unique looking bottle. Enjoyable bier!

This beer pours a very dark caramel color, with little head. The aroma is very prominently of malt. It tastes of malt with a smooth and creamy palate, with a little bite in the aftertaste from the hops. It’s odd that this beer seems to be malty, then bitter, instead of both simultaneously. A very good beer, definitely worth trying if you’re a fan of German styles. Prost!

Gusgus (232) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2009
Bottle. Deep amber to brown. Perfumy, fruity aroma. Nuts and bananas. Belgian notes galore. Dry, sourish taste. Hints of apple. Not the most sharp and fresh beer aroud, but more like a mediocre hombrebrew. Probably not the freshest hops in this one.

FastEddie (230) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Pours a huge tan head which diminishes quickly. The color is a cloudy dark brown, with plenty of bubbles. The body is really good. The taste is that of a fairly hoppy ale.

TLNash886 (228) - Idaho, USA - JAN 19, 2010
11.2 oz bottle pours a dark, rich tobacco brown with a good bit of retaining off white head. Aroma of bready malts, floral sweetness, earthy (almost metallic), dash of spice. Light taste profile with bready sweet malts. Very herby through the middle to the finish with a dash of lasting honey sweetness. Pretty earthy overall with a vague presence of cinnamon. Light fizzy mouthfeel with a medium level of carbonation; light to medium body. Interesting herbal and spicy brew. Not bad.

warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Sweet malty aromas with some fruity character. Beer poured with very little head. Deep copper color and clear with a low carbonation level. Rich malty flavor with some mild roasted malt flavor coming thru, a mild bitter taste in the finish. Not as much hop flavor or bitterness as I was expecting. This beer was bottled almost 3 yrs ago and I’ll need to try it again fresh. Flavor almost reminds me of a bock beer with a little more bitter finish. Good beer considering it’s 3 yrs old!

I didn’t like it at all, and I don’t think I can properly describe the displeasure I had while drinking it, so I won’t try. A sickly-sweet syrupy mess.

MarinaMarket (210) - POULSBO, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Pours Dark brown with a huge fluffy head with massive lacing. The head retention is amazing. Slightly sour grain aroma, with resin and leather notes. Mouth feel is thick and a little sticky, and there are lots of piney hops on the finish. Lots of dark fruit, spices, and nutty caramel flavors. Really quite nice. A classic alt. Tasted at 58.8F.
