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. 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.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Classic flip top bottle served in a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Why not? A - Dark ruddy brown with a small tan cap that slowly dissipates. S - Sticky dark malts, raisins, dates, cooked caramel, dark bread, molasses, deep malt aroma, honey sweetness, really yeasty as it sets. T - Follows the nose with big dark bread malt, sticky dates, nutty, burnt/charred fig bread, vanilla, spicy hops adds some peppery bitterness. Sweet and rich caramel, with a wheat cracker like dryness overtaking the sweetness. Grassy hops and dark bread crust create a dry rustic finish. M - Rich feel, chewy body, carbonation is right on, dry spicy finish. Awesome! Sweet and rich but with a sweeping dryness. Spicy hops really showed up to combat the deep dark bready malts. I loved the sweet nutty caramel malt seemed sweet but actually was not. Almost like tricking your brain. Great layering effects and a standout brew for sure. Serving type: bottle 08-04-2013

Thanks to jcalabre for this taste. Clear brown, smallish head, sweet aroma. A bit thin, some sweetness, not much else except alcohol and it does not finish very well. Not very impressed.

Ok this beer taste like smokey water. I think there was a fire at the brewery, and this is the water they used to extinguish the fire. Not a good beer.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2005
Small rubber stopped brown bottle purchased from Armanetti’s, Mundelein, IL. ABV 4.5%. Hazy brown hued having a small, white diminishing head with good lacing. No discernable aroma. Average carbonation. Medium bodied dry palette that starts with sharp bitter, alcoholic taste and finishes with moderate bitter of average duration. Slight bottle leakage when bottled stored on side but carbonation and flavor seemed fine. A good drinkable beer.

Brown, clear, beige head. Aroma of toasty and nutty malt with definite leathery oxidation. Flavor is similar, nutty, malty, showing some age.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 6, 2005
Clear, dark amber color with medium sized tan head. Aroma has roasted malt, caramel, maple. Flavor is slightly bitter, creamy. A good, solid alt, but nothing amazing

(GERMAN) Pours a hazy amber / brown color with a med-tan head. The aroma is of dry fruits, brown sugar, and pepper. Taste is kind of hoppy with a roasted walnut flavor !! The finish is dry and very drinkable, nice lacing too. I must say that i enjoyed this brew very much. :)

Bottle. I had first had this beer in Chicago last year. Clear amber with a foamy tan head and lacing. One of the first alt. Beers I have had that is so complex. Nutty malt and a grassy hop bite. Nice beer.
