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.

JulienHuxley (3618) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle thanks to potjebier. Deep copper brown pour with thin off white head. Aroma is really rich and matly, tons of toasty aromas, light toffee, caramelized sugar, as in maillard effect. Taste is sweet but not cloying, rich toasty malty notes, light grassy bitterness. Palate is med-full bodied with med carbonation. Tasty.

ClubGonzo (4375) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep amber-hued hazy brown body with a substantial creamy off-white head. Nose is raisins, grains, bread dough, caramel and hints of nuts and dark syrup. Taste is raisins, grains, cereals, bread dough, caramel and hints of figs, grass and dark syrup. Medium to full body, soft to medium carbonation. Very pleasant Altbier, malty and full of dark fruits but still balanced in sweetness somehow. Most enjoyable.

_angst_ (3217) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle received in Euroswap 1, 2015. Pours very hazy deep hazel brown with a frothy beige head that leaves some sparse lacing and trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty, slightly floral, slightly earthy and tiny estery with dark bread, crispbread, caramel, cereal, hay, moist soil, pear skins and lemon peal. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, malty, floral, earthy and tiny estery with dark bread, caramel, toasted cereal, hay, moist soil, minerals, lemon peal and hints of pear skins. Mouthfeel is soft, slightly viscous, round, tiny astringent, very tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with dark bread, caramel, cereal, hay, moist soil, minerals, pear skins, lemon peal and hints of alcohol. Not like anything I’ve ever tried before but I like it. Even the slight pear eaters work in this brew. Very well made and tasty malt forward ale...

Hallstein (176) - Skogn, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2015
Pours a dark red turning brown with a small head. Aroma is nice and malty with a slight roastyness to it, with some slight spicy notes from the hops. Flavor is earthy, malty, slightly nutty and roasty with a nice herbal finish. When the beer warms up you get more dark fruits and even more nuttiness. It’s a really interesting brew. I’d definately try it again!

Pour out of 375 mL bottle, dark reddish pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, red fruit, hints of spice, yeast, touch of grain. Taste is a mix of caramel, toasted bread, hints of spice, touch of red fruit, hints of yeast, finishing bitter, slightly sweet.

tfredvik (1260) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2015
Hazy, medium brown body with a beige head that laces the glass well and that never gets thinner than a good layer. Fairly strong lager-like aroma of pale malts, caramel and generic fruits. Moderate flavour of caramel, pale malts and light fruity yeast. The moderate bitter finish is accompanied by citrus, herbs and resin. Light sweetness. Despite all the caramel the mouthfeel is crisp, thanks to the nice bitterness. Light body, dry texture, moderate carbonation. A nice beer, although I’m quite certain that altbier will never become my favourite beer style.
[33 cl bottle (and what a stylish bottle!), enjoyed 6 months before BB date, form Vinmonopolet Online]
