COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

OG - 1085; IBU - 75; Ingredients; Hops:Spalt Spalter, Hallertauer Perle, Spalt Hallertauer; Malts: Pilsner malt, caramel malt, roasted malt

Arayaga2 (2197) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Drak opaque reddish brown with medium off-white head. Aroma is rather malty with a slight sour hint. Taste is unusual... rather apparently alcoholic and hoppy in a way I didn’t expect, and this is not a bad thing. $4/11.2oz

95, are you kidding. Malty crap if you as me. The worst part is that it looked good from the start and came in a sweet bottle. Might as well be a malt liquor...PHEW!!!

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 330ML bottle via Flacoalto (THANKS!). Pours a dark reddish brown with an average sized beige head. Nose is oxidized and a little sour. Tastes like an oxidized barleywine. Lot of malts and hops, some acetone and warm alc bite on the finish. Don’t care too much for this one.

heavy sherry/ port wine aroma and taste driven brew. hoppy and sweet. I guess thats how its rolling. but above all thathas a good aroma more drinkable warmer.

tjthresh (1873) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2007
Poured a dark ruby or cherry color with a tan head. Aromas cherries, strussel, and spicey hops. The flavor was a bit much. Really nothing like an altbier at all. Very rich on the palate. Cloying.

MoritzF (9901) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2007
(33cl swing top bottle) Slightly hazy, chestnut-brown colour with a medium-sized foamy and quite persistent tanned head. Sweet toast-malty aroma with caramel, cinnamon and liquorice-spicy notes, also delicate but aromatic herbal hops and light fruity accents. Dark malt-character, slightly toasted and almost perfectly rounded up with spicy notes (cinnamon, liquorice, cough-syrup) and a delicate, subtle fruitiness; long and lasting initially sweet, later strong bitter hoppy finish. Very aromatic strong “Alt”, which tastes more like a Barley Wine. For me (being beer-socialized in Germany), it definitely lacks session-qualities, hence I prefer the “normal” Sticke (03.01.07).

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - FEB 17, 2007
From a swing top, narrow neck, embossed, uniquely shaped 11.2 oz. bottle with a bottling and freshness date on the neck label, sampled at a cool cellar temperature in a stange glass. Poured a lightly hazy, reddish copper with a frothy, tight bubbly, foamy off-white head that settled slowly into a thin sudsy, fluffy, creamy lacing, small amount of ringed sticking. Aromas of sweet roasted malts, a hint of caramel, a light fig and raisin fruitiness, earthy, herbal, and whiffs of spicy alcohol. Good, even moderate carbonation and a crisp, dryish bitter, slick, chewy, creamy smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel. Barley wine-like taste with a earthy, spicy, herbal hop bitterness, sweet roasted malts with a touch of sugar, a light caramel coffee, a ripe raisin fruitiness, earthy, spicy herbal hops with a nice lingering bitterness, the alcohol has a spicy warmth in the palate, and a dry, bitter, fruity, alcoholic, malty finish. Another excellent Altbier from Uerige, definitely a sipper, but dangerously quaffable, a must try.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Fruity aroma with vanilla, dates, huge pilsy malt, and spicy hops; chewy body enveloping a medicinal, creamy, orange-peel and nut flavor; finishes nicely bitter, tart and flowery. Quite interesting, and very good.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - FEB 13, 2007
Bottle. Doppel Sticke has a very malty sweet aroma with dried fruits and honey. The color is dark brownish red with an off white head with good lacing. A bitter roasted malt flavor is balanced by a sweet dried fruit accent and mild yeasty cream like notes with a little bit of caramel. A thick and creamy mouthfeel with average carbonation stretches into a bitter sweet aftertaste. Very satisfying.
