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.

Drank it side by side with the normal Alt from Uerige. This one is more my style, even if Alt isn’t really my style at all. In any case, this one had more everything which can sometimes backfire, but in this case it made it better. Sweeter but more bitterness, more hop aroma, still a hint of fruitcake or something, but the other bits kinda balance it out. If I ever found myself in Dusseldorf, I would probably drink one or two of these before I started to think about Kölsch.

Bottle sample, thanks beerandbeyond. Hazy brown with sand colour head. Some honey and toast aroma, sweet and slightly alcoholic taste. Slightly sticky finish.

Herbal, caramel malt aroma. Malty flavor: a lot of caramel malt, bready, sweet.

suprchunk (2179) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Last year at Cigar World. Light brown colored pour. Small off-white head. Little bit of lacing. Nice malt aroma with a carbonic bite and a bit of hop presence. Bitter up front with a nice roasty malt character throughout.

Brown, clear, beige head. Aroma of toasty and nutty malt with definite leathery oxidation. Flavor is similar, nutty, malty, showing some age.

Pours a dark coppery brown with hardly and head or lacing. Sweet malts, caramel, brown sugar, and cinnamon on the nose. Dark tropical fruit, malty, caramel and sugar notes, raisins, plums, earthy, bready flavors. Hardly any hoppiness. A very nice alt beer.

solidfunk (3898) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Done decently with light roast malt and a great grain profile consistent for style. Pours orange. Light bitter finish. Hint of hops and some citrus here. Good stuff. Tap at Max’s.

Bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a slightly hazy amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, toasted bread, some orange citrus, resin, dry earthy bitterness, definitely bigger and more going on than the Alt.

one of the classics revisited. i had this first before tickers were even ticking. Malty body without being sweet, rich and layered malts without overdoing it in any direction. Fantastic stuff.

Deep coppery brown with a tan head. Smooth, malty, but a hint of fruit. Caramel, nuts, cherry, then a bit of hops bitterness through the finish.
