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.

renffisch (891) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2008
Swingtop with ethereal. Nose was earthy, woody and a bit cheesy. Looks of darkest amber, little lacy head, heavy sweet caramel notes with a wheighty alcohol taste. too fizzy, would be quite drinkable with a bit less carb.

ttutony (886) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Deep brown in the glass with a thick creamy head. Aroma of earthy, spicy noble hops and cereal grains. Great balance on the palate with a surprising bitter note. Great beer.

ThreeCats (886) - ISRAEL - MAR 23, 2015
Hazy mahogany color, very unique with a spongy head. Aroma very sweet and caramely, rich and almost sugary. Taste full and a little sharp, with strong caramel note and possibly some oxidation. Dry-ish finish with a bit of a sharpe note to it and some metallic feel.

Bottled on 25.10, Code 11 26, whatever that means. Great looking bottle! Stored in a friend’s uncle’s basement since he bought leftover stock from an out-of-business liquor store a few years ago in the DC area. Muddy brown color and cloudy with very small head and no lacing. Aroma was rich and malty. Flavor had strong caramel notes, malts, some bitter hops, and was still a little sweet. Very interesting and good for my first Alt

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Light white head with a ruby body. Sweet aroma similar to the Stone Double Bastard. Hops and malts are very present in it. Sharp initial taste with a slight caramel flavoring. Some bitterness typical of German beers in the ending.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - DEC 12, 2005
Had one of these at the Winking Lizard. Should have kept the bottle. Light floral and fruit notes dominate the subtle but very pleasant nose. Caramel tones leak out a bit as brew warms. The brew pours a dark color characteristic of mahogany or walnut. The tall off white frothy head is mostly lasting with good lace character. The brew starts nice and malty with moderate acidity and exceptional balance with a nice long full finish. The medium creamy and soft body has an astringent feel to the finish. Exceptional offering.

yurrig stick. is that how you say it? or, yooo-reeguh shticka? who cares, just mumble and point; if you're in dusseldorf, that should suffice. in ohio, though, try saying: "that fancy-ass expensive german beer yonder". a novice like myself , blindfolded, would likely guess that this is in the english style: casky tasting, well-hopped, not too strong. it's whiskey colored and clear with a quick wash of lazy foam. aroma has a criscross of mixed smells: sizzling sugars, bread and oaky dried peaches, along with a note of gym bag-- leaving the gym rather than going to the gym, unfortunately. flavor-wise, sweet cookie malts are quickly overcome by a rich tea-like bitterness which brings an unusual sensation of dryness to the tongue. a rind of tangerine adds some lingering sustain. the carbonation fails on the palette in short order, revealing a watery texture. albiet overpriced, overbottled, overhyped and in too small a portion to linger over, it's a--yawn-- fairly interesting medium-bodied bitter.

Look: dark brown with red shades, cloudy, unstable white head. Aroma: malty, slighlty roasted. some dark fruits. Taste: almost dry, with light fruity sourness and spicy bitterness. Flavour: malt, dark candied fruits, wine, some grassy and spicy hops. Hop become more prominent in the finish. Good.

Cask. Tons of cereal (malted barley, oats) malt. Some spalt skunkiness and slight iron taste as well. Grapes, fresh earth and hoppy goodness round things out.

Bottle. Pours with an amber color and a huge head with excellent lacing. Yes the Germans know how to give head. In any case this is from my hometown so I am biased. It has a nice malty aromas and great flavors that evolve when the beer warms up a bit. Initial bitterness is replaced by a bit more sweetness, I can discern figs and almonds. Finishes off again with some bitter malts. Head and shoulders over the standard issue alt.
