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.

Clean copper brown pour with a thin off white head. Nose is malt forward, biscuity with light grainy notes. Sweet and dextrinous and almost sharp. Light bitterness and spicy hops.

Bottle 330ml @ yngwie
Pours hazy brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, orange peel and some fruity hops. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long malty, caramel, orange and hoppy finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (14365) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle. A murky brown beer with a small, dense, light beige colored head. It’s rather malty on the nose, with some dried fruits and noble hops. Grass, pepper notes and piney hints. It’s full-bodied and with a certain warmth, pleasantly carbonated and not too sticky sweet. It’s bitter, with pine cones, some orange zest just without orange if that makes any sense. Caramel maltyness, some roasted hints and a faint touch of prunes. Lasting bitter and malty finish, seemingly the bitterness wins. Sure a nice one, resembling a fine dunkel bock in many ways, but more hop focused and dried. 150131

330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Nesodden. Tiny off-white head. Medium brown body. Aroma is mostly sugar, with some light herbal hops. Mostly sweet on the tongue with high carbonation. Light bitter aftertaste.

ksiwzos (57) - GREECE - JAN 22, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015 Beer from German e-shop Dark amber, not clear, Pours dark unclear amber- rather muddy with a small white head. It has been stading up in the fridge for a week. Nose is yeast and malts. Already a little scared with it not being entirely fresh or too yeasty. Baking yeast, dough, caramel , winegums and grass. Its smooth and full bodied. Yeasty bitter finish. Overall a bit disappointed as I really liked their Nicht Filtriert and regular Alt. It’s too yeasty!

caesar (5411) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle from de Bierkoning, BB 17.12.15, large sample. Clear copper color, medium frothy light brown head. Aroma of earthy hop, caramel, slight spicy, toffee, bit molasses, slight dark bread. Soft bitterness in taste, slight sweet. Seems to be more spicy than the regular Alt, but not as dark and powerful as the Doppelsticke. Nice beer.

Moravius (647) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2014
Relativ frische Flasche (33 cl; Abfüllung: 08/14, MHD: 08/15) von Bierlieb, Berlin. - Tiefes Kupferrot, trüb; wenig Schaum. - In der Nase röstiges Karamelmalz und kräftiger, herb-fruchtiger Hopfen; leicht weinig. - Im Antrunk wuchtige röstmalzige Bittere und geballter, aromatisch herb-ledriger Hopfen. Fruchtig-obergärige Aromen kommen angesichts dieser geballten Bittermalz- und Hopfenwucht etwas zu kurz, aber im Hintergrund blitzt noch etwas Zitrusfrucht auf. Trotz aller Bittere auch karamelsüß. Sehr bitterer, fruchtig-herber Abgang. Sehr langer bitterer Nachtrunk. - Diese „konzentrierte" Version des Uerige Alt ist schon heftig - beim ersten Versuch fand ich sie einfach zu extrem, aber beim zweiten schmeckt sie mir schon wesentlich besser. Trotzdem ist mir das „normale“ Uerige lieber, da besser trinkbar.
