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.

FlacoAlto (4176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 17, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2005 Bottled January 31, 2005, Sampled August 2005
Pours a brilliantly clear ruby amber color that is topped by a frothy, thinnish, tan colored head. The aroma is quite fruity with notes of brandy, and rum, hints of strawberry, citrus and lightly spicy notes. Actually a fairly interesting aroma that is still intriguing after these 6 months. The taste is lightly sweet and fairly malty with notes of caramel. This is quite fruity as well with notes of cherry, raisins, and a bit of strawberry and some notes of bergemot as well. For some reason the fruity character in an Alt I have always associated as an interesting mix of hop and malt character. This has held up much better, in the voyage across the Atlantic, than the regular Alt did, though it stills suffers quite a bit from the voyage.

Various layers of sweet brown things; caramel, brown sugar, maybe a touch of cinammon... I love this beer. I prefer the taste of DoppelSticke but I’m not always in the mood for an 8.5% beer. Then again, this is deceptive at 6.5% and could probably get you in trouble. That’s my kinda trouble, though...

Deep brown color with a sweet malty caramel aroma. Malty with a bit of toffee. Some musty dusty hop flavours with some good bitterness.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Slightly sweet, crackerjack aroma, soma caramel. Nice amber in color with a quick, fluffy white head. Caramel malts are playing nicely with classic, noble hops Finished fairly quickly with lingering hops. Thanks to bkelley for the brew!

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUL 20, 2005
11.2 oz. custom bottle. Pleasant, nutty, sweet aroma, some caramel and hazelnut with hints of creamy toffee, flowery, spicy hops and cookieish malts. Some vague fruits lurking in the background. Rusty dark orange color with a slight, fine head. Flavor depth is highly impressive, with plenty of toasty, succulent, sugary, bready malts up front and bright, tangy, salty, herbal, fruity, spicy bitterness underneath, intertwined with notes of butterscotch and leafy hops. Light, refreshing, peppery mouthfeel with a low level of effervescence, body is medium. Incredibly drinkable and a fine Alt.

Suttree (6194) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 17, 2005
Brown, with a thick tan head. Spicy aroma - cinnamon, nutmeg, maybe? Peppery and earthy, with a piney undertone. Very tasty, with a surprisingly hoppy finish. Thanks Springslicker!

PorterPounder (7619) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Marcello’s Wine Market, Baton Rouge, La. - long necked 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a dark copper color with a thin, but long lasting off-white head that leaves thick, sticky lacing. Aroma is sweet and caramel like with hints of toffee and cotton candy. Very good caramel flavor with some bitter chocolate undertones. Same bitter notes that are found in many of my favorit Bristish session ales. Turns a tad metallic near the end and just a bit thinnish, but still a very flavorful Alt.

bierkoning (12814) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle, best until 13.02.05. Dark amber color, small head. Vinous aroma with biscuit. Hoppy, very malty flavor. This beer has a good hop character, but that is cahllanged by the malt, the wine-like character and the biscuit and butterscotch flavors. World class beer!. Thanks Dortmunder, for providing me with this gem.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2010 Wow- this is not what I expected. I kinda thought the sticke was going to be a lot more malty than thier regular alt. Not the case- as this one was really really hoppy. Nice deep deep copper with a minimal off white head. Aroma is actually more towards a very earthy and herbal noble hop aroma than towards malt. Flavors are nicely balanced between a full munich malt flavor and a nice dry herbal hoppy flavor. Finishes moderately bitter as well. Really nicely done, but for me I’d rather have the original.
