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.

On tap a the braurei (only 2 days per year, so I was lucky to be there on that date!). Wow! So tasty, nutty, malty, very good mouthfeel with a lot of earthy hops. Incredible beer when it’s fresh! Soft carbonatation and unfiltered helps to get all the flavors. This beer is a must for any altbier lover!

Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Nice aroma hops, texture and taste of a soft barley wine, but far less sweet or sticky. Rather dry actually.

Amber-brown color with big tan head. Aroma is toffee, hoppy, caramel, plums. Taste similar, with bitter caramel, also spicy yeasts. Rich. Yup, mini Barleywine is quite accurate. Good stuff!

One2remeber (201) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Bottled 14.05. Murkey tan, with a vibrant amber hue. 20-22 srm. Big bubbly off white head, tons of co2 pop. Root beer/Coke cheery sweetness, tootsie roll, European barnyard hay. Motts apple sauce. Pretty mild taste, light flavor like an esb without the heavy bitterness. Dry, no real lingering finish.

330 ml bottle from Les Vignerons. Dark amber, light copper, perfectly clear, with a huge, fluffy, forever lasting off white head. Milions of bubbles streaming up. Fruity, malty and nutty nose, notes of caramel malts, hazelnuts, toffee, subtle reminiscene of baked apples and candied peaches. Taste pretty much follow suite with a little difference, there is a mild warming sensation despite no actual alchool smell in the aroma. Again caramel, slightly astringent sweetness, moderate but lingering malty and toasted bitterness. Lighter mouthfeel than what I was expecting. Average carbonation, light to medium body, slightly oily texture. I’m not a huge fan of Altbiers but this one was good, even if I’m afraid a fresher bottle would be so much better.

Bottle from VP Aker Brygge enjoyed at home
Pours hazy brown with a thick creamy tanned head. Smell of light fruits, some caramel and malts, hay and spices. Moderate sweet, quite spicy, fruity malts and yeast influence, caramel, some toffee, playful and interesting. Great stuff from Uerige!

Zlotta (451) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2015
0,33 l bottle from REWE Budnik & Homberg, bottled in 10/2014. Clear, reddish amber with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Lovely, fruity aroma of prunes, raisins, red berries, toffee and molasses, a little vinous in the end. Sweetish taste of raisins, prunes, nuts and caramel, followed by a nice and hoppy, slightly bitter, but also gently fruity finish. Medium body, smooth and oily mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Overall very aromatic and tasty, with a pleasant mouthfeel. Richer than the standard Uerige, I really enjoyed it!

Bottle. Clear amber with a thick creamy head. Aroma of malt, caramel, honey and herbs. Sweetish malty start, caramel, biscuit, light fruitiness, strong herbal hops bitterness. Medium bodied, dry but quite smooth mouthfeel. Decent.
