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.

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!

Moravius (570) - 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.

tmongoose (1364) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Pint bottle shared. Must be an older bottle because it poured a murky brown color. The aroma is sweet malt with caramel and dried fruit like raisins. The flavor is more of the same. Sweet mslts with caramel and raisin notes. Pretty good beer all the way around but thinking this bottle is quite old.

skortila (4602) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle. 15cl sample. Drank 10 days past bottle date. The aroma has caramel, some raisin, grass. Clear, copper-brown coloured beer with an off-white, lasting, medium head. The taste is ligh-moderate bitter, has some caramel sweetness, some dried fruits, some grassy hop tones without those herbal tones lots of German beers have. Lingering palate. Very good.

Geruch röstig und nach deutschen Hopfen. Weniger Aroma als das Doppelsticke, aber sehr rund.

Saeglopur (405) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de.
Dark copper to brown, clear body, with a medium, creamy, beige head.
Aroma of sweet berries, caramel, marzipan, dried fruits and roast.
Taste with about the same aromas, but less sweeter and with more roasty notes.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a medium carbonation and it finishes roasty, slightly bitter, sweet malty and slightly hoppy.

Nice! Full, but quaffable and with nice hoppy notes. The nose is quite unique for this style, while the taste is more typical for an Altbier, but a pretty beyond average one!

Torrefacto (617) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 17, 2014
Color caoba, espuma color crema. Aromas de canela, caramelo y tierra. Cuerpo medio, con sabores secos de tierra, vainilla, tabaco y caramelo. Buena.

unclemike (2280) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Taste was sweet, full bodied and rich. Caramel color with a smallish head. Nice and malty with medium hop bite. Finish was very clean and I wish I had another.

Bill Becker (390) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Dark red and brown, good head of foam that shrinks slowly. Got good lacing. Smells hoppy, almost if not a fruity sort of hoppiness going on. Some bread. Nice hoppy fruity taste with a backbone of bread malt. Also some light caramel malt. Medium body, lightish co2. Pretty easy drinker and I love the swing tops their beers come in. Worth more purchases.
