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.

This is the second occasion that I have had Zum Uerige Sticke in the bottle. Both were imported to the US. In fact, my beer was dated 10.25 meaning that it was a 2005 bottle. Bloody shame!Needless to say, this beer does not seem to hold up very well in the bottle, especially after one year. The aroma had pronounced notes of prune that must have been from oxidation. The malt presence was considerable as was the hop flavor and bitterness. The balance of the clean flavors begs this to be sampled from its birthplace.

A- Pours a dark murky brown hue with a small head that fades quickly. S- Raisin, date T- Raisin, plum, slight lingering bitterness. M- Silky and medium bodied with ample carbonation. D- This is my first alt, but definitely enjoyed it. Easy drinking.

Bottle. Dark copper with small off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and a hint of hops. Light/medium body with notes of roasted malt, caramel, and a light bitter hop finish.

stevoj (1701) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Classic altbier from one of the originals. Clear dark brown, dark and smoky, roast grains and nuts. Bitterness comes more from the roast grains than the hops. This is an altbier against which to judge all others.

bartlebier (1162) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2014
33cl bottles from source 02/2014 ("bottled on 13.06"?), from online shop on earlier occasions in 2012. Would have sworn I remember this pouring much lighter than the deep chestnut brown. Rich and creamy caramalt notes, plum and roast supersede the leafy natural hop notes from the basic version, a bit of a shame. Quite filling and not as unique, woody and Pale ale-ish as Uerige Alt, more of an odd Dunkel.

kappldav123 (4577) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle looks really good, nice format. Beer in the glass dark brown, huge head. Starts strong-malty, modest sourish, some fruity hints of plum. More and more earthy-dry, bitter background. Finish still with nice dry notes, modest sourish. Good beer!

MarinaMarket (209) - POULSBO, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Pours Dark brown with a huge fluffy head with massive lacing. The head retention is amazing. Slightly sour grain aroma, with resin and leather notes. Mouth feel is thick and a little sticky, and there are lots of piney hops on the finish. Lots of dark fruit, spices, and nutty caramel flavors. Really quite nice. A classic alt. Tasted at 58.8F.

kiwianer (3315) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 18, 2014
Das Bier ist wie versprochen schön hopfig, aber auch Röstmalzig und Getreidig. Der Abgang ist hopfig und der Nachgeschmack recht Herb. Das zweite Glas ist etwas milder als das erste aber immer noch sehr lecker, hopfig und würzig, Röstmalz ist hier nur mittelstark vertreten. Test vom 13.12.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 13,12,13,12,-,13 - 12,68

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Classic flip top bottle served in a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Why not? A - Dark ruddy brown with a small tan cap that slowly dissipates. S - Sticky dark malts, raisins, dates, cooked caramel, dark bread, molasses, deep malt aroma, honey sweetness, really yeasty as it sets. T - Follows the nose with big dark bread malt, sticky dates, nutty, burnt/charred fig bread, vanilla, spicy hops adds some peppery bitterness. Sweet and rich caramel, with a wheat cracker like dryness overtaking the sweetness. Grassy hops and dark bread crust create a dry rustic finish. M - Rich feel, chewy body, carbonation is right on, dry spicy finish. Awesome! Sweet and rich but with a sweeping dryness. Spicy hops really showed up to combat the deep dark bready malts. I loved the sweet nutty caramel malt seemed sweet but actually was not. Almost like tricking your brain. Great layering effects and a standout brew for sure. Serving type: bottle 08-04-2013
