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.

Bottle from Once Upon a Vine North in Richmond. Clear brown pour with a medium head and good lacing. Very strong grain aroma with a hint of bitterness. Big grain taste w/ dark fruit notes, nuttiness, and big bitterness.

Christian (13601) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2013
RB Odense Early Summer Fun. Copper with a small white head. Rich malty aroma with biscuit and bread, dried fruit and tropical sweet fruit. Malty and fruity flavour with a yeasty hint, herbal hops and a quite bitter finish. A bit thin for what the aroma is promising

bierkoning (13217) - 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.

Tap. Pours clear dark amber with a medium, creamy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is spicy, herbal and pine hops with biscuit and straw malt and a clean lager character. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Dogbrick (12912) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2004
I've been looking for a replacement for the awesome Blimp City Akron/Macon Ale since they went out of business, and I think I have found it! The beer is a dark brown/amber with an ultra thin off-white head. Very little lacing. The aroma is nice and full, with caramel, malt and sweet fruit. Medium-bodied and very drinkable with a pleasing blend of flavors such as malt, raisin, caramel and hops. The finish is the only place it falls off a little. There is a slight metallic tinge to the fruity finish that was out of character with the beer. A slightly bigger hops finish would make it nearly perfect. As it stands though, this is one of the better Alts I have had.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 Had it on tap, it had a slight funkiness (probably he line) but i was soo delicious, huge herbal noble hop notes and a medium bitterness. Soo tasty. Wanna go to the source now. Bottle fresh is hoppy, lots of woodiness, herbs, spices, nuttiness, very nice.

Rune (12587) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2015
330ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Tromsdalen. Slim neck and a swing-top that gave a good shot when opened. Pours a cloudy caramel brown body topped by a rocky, beige head with fine retention and spotty lacing to the glassware. Just plain malt-driven aroma, hints of nuts and bread, mid-sweet. Well blended flavour character of earthy malts, nuts, herbal hops, and lightly hints of jam-like fruits. Malt bitterness to a prolonged ending. Fine bodied. Lovely. Had not expected this, it really came as a very pleasant surprise (Tromsø 27.03.2015).

thewolf (12534) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours caramelly amber with a slight haze. Fine, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is malty, sweet, some caramel. Good citric and flowery hoppiness as well. A hint of toffee. Medium carbonation, good and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely balanced, lots of sweet maltiness, toasted, caramel, grassy. Long, lingering aftertaste with good toasted caramel and a good deal of bitterness. Really nice and very drinkable.
