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.

Drank it side by side with the normal Alt from Uerige. This one is more my style, even if Alt isn’t really my style at all. In any case, this one had more everything which can sometimes backfire, but in this case it made it better. Sweeter but more bitterness, more hop aroma, still a hint of fruitcake or something, but the other bits kinda balance it out. If I ever found myself in Dusseldorf, I would probably drink one or two of these before I started to think about Kölsch.

Daboch (164) - Gdansk, POLAND - OCT 26, 2017
Piwo koloru herbaty, piana dość obfita. Aromat głównie akcenty słodowe, trochę skórki od chleba, rodzynek, karmelu. W smaku podobnie, nuty słodowe, plus ciemne owoce, karmel, finisz lekko wytrawny

Bottle from Knighton Londis, Leicester. This is incredible. It has everything. Sticky, deep fruitcake malt; pudding barley hopping. Crispness, some tart snap. Germanic doppelbock authenticity. Really good. Surprising good. A suprise.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2017 Bottle. Murky brown with orange tinges and a big head. Aroma of fruity and herbal hops and some caramel. Taste is caramel and toffee. Malty, fruity and bitter. Hoppy finish. Medium carbonation. A hint of booziness. It's nice and delicious but I prefer the regular version as I feel it's more balanced and satisfying.

Craftakt (163) - Hannover, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - OCT 11, 2017
Leider kein positives Spezial im Vergleich zum Standard. Schwere Malzaromen mit einer spürbaren metallischen Alkoholnote und einem kratzig bitteren Abgang.

Mr_Pink_152 (5529) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2017
Bottle from Hopology, Nottingham. Deep Amber colour with an off white head. Aroma big malty caramel. Taste balanced sweet to light bitter. Medium body.

kraddel (8864) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2017
Bottle at brauhaus zum weiren Bären. Pours unclear darker caramelly amberbrow . Small white head, with a nice stability. Smell is malty, metallic, tad sweet. Taste is full, heavy on the malts, metallic, not my favorite alt.

tnkw01 (1800) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle. Nice amber color with a two finger head. Wonderful balance of hop and malt in both taste and aroma. Nice.

Tayeth (677) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2017
Fruchtige Hopfenaromen und Malz. Der Geschmack ist sehr ausgewogen, fruchtig und malzig. Etwas kratzig und astringierend im Abgang, die starke Bittere kommt erst hinterher.
