Bottle. Dark copper with small off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and a hint of hops. Light/medium body with notes of roasted malt, caramel, and a light bitter hop finish. npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2004
A near perfectly balanced beer. Grassy noble hop aromas blend with a light toffee sweetness in the nose. Very crisp flavor, with a fresh hoppy bitterness offsetting a delicate, bready undercurrent of malt with hints of peach or apricot esters. MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2007
Poured from a 11.2oz swing-top bottle, and served in a shaker. This beer poured a dark amber color with a foamy, light off-white head that slowly dissolved. A small amount of lace was left behind. The aroma of the beer was made up of sweet malts, grassy/floral hop notes, and also a bit of apple and dark fruits. The flavor included dark fruits, caramel malt, and just a touch of grassy hops. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and slightly dry with a good dose of carbonation. This was not nearly as interesting as I was hoping that it would be. The flavor was actually a bit bland, but it was still enjoyable. HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 11, 2004
(Bottled on 1/29/04 This alt beer is packed in a handsome swing top bottle that has cool raised letters and brail. The nose of the beer is mostly malty with a dash of hops. The color of the beer is light auburn. Carbonation levels are low, but this makes the beer easy to drink. I find the beer hard to describe, it reminds me of a light bock or a big dunkel. This beer is good if you are in the mood for a beer on the malty side. MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2005

BB 13.02 Bottled 14.01 (?!) Shining ruby/amber. Breadlike heavy aroma. Toasted bread. Full bodied. Sticky (!) palate. Sort of Belgian dubbel, bockbier, old ale combo. My first Sticke after 20 years of beer hunting! Too yeasty for my taste, but maybe it is supposed to be like this. Sweet and quite hoppy taste. If it wasn’t for yeast, this would be very pleasant. I prefer the "ordinary" alt from this brewery.
Bottle shared by The_Captain. Thanks Mark. Pours hazy brown with a foamy tan head. Smells of dough, caramel, brown sugar, dark fruit. After smelling it I was expecting a rich, complex flavor but all I really tasted was an earthy bitter dough flavor. It was good, just not as amazing as I was expecting after reading reviews of it.

Beautiful long neck flip top bottle pours a brown tan color with a small head and no residual lace. The aroma is serious malt sweetness. The flavor is drier than the aroma, with some good caramel flavors mixing with the hops as a balance. The palate is rich and almost "sticky". Overall, I could drink a lot of this. ttutony (920) - 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. dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2006
