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.

initially, I got an nose of cherry, but it further developed into a bit of a fig aroma, with some hints of "other fruit" tartness. Upon an initial sip, fig definitely stands out as the dominant flavor. It a very good beer with deep, rich fruit flavors. I’m not quite sure what I was getting, but it was dark, rich, and bold. A very rich brew.

domienS (233) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2015
Pours a cloudy amber beer with a small beige head. Smells of caramel, malts, some yeast. Tastes malty, sweet. Leaves a gentle sweet palate. Fine sweet crowd pleasing beer.

tomer (2427) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 27, 2015
Bottle, big gushing bubbly fluffy light beige head with lots of lacing, clear deep copper color, bread and caramel flavor with fruity and flowery hints, biscuity flavor with some fruity notes and a strong and empathic herbal bitterness. Good satisfying Alt.

canary dog (715) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - NOV 15, 2015
This is another old-world quality beer. You can taste the centuries of beer-making in a brew like this. Flawless and nuanced....not at all in your face or gaudy like American craft brewed beer. This is malty and smooth, with just the right hint of dry hoppiness at the finish. Nice.

Cerbier (561) - - NOV 13, 2015
0,33l Flasche. Braunes Bier mit fester beiger Schaumkrone. Riecht malzig und leicht nach reifen Früchten. Schmeckt nach Röstmalzen und unterschiedlichem Aromahopfen, beides ist wunderbar abgestimmt. Komplex mit tollen Geschmacksnuancen.

tightslice (602) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle from Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is mineral water, metallic dark malts, raisins. Taste is thin, watered-down earthy malts. Not nearly as good as the Uerige Doppel Sticke.

King_Alex_II (793) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Brown color with little foam. The smell has a lot of earthy and foresty hoppy bitterness. The taste is mild hoppy and a little malty with a calm aftertaste.

anstei (534) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Nice aroma hops, texture and taste of a soft barley wine, but far less sweet or sticky. Rather dry actually.

SinH4 (1399) - Garching, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2015
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!
