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.

initially, I got an nose of cherry, but it further developed into a bit of a fig aroma, with some hints of "other fruit" tartness. Upon an initial sip, fig definitely stands out as the dominant flavor. It a very good beer with deep, rich fruit flavors. I’m not quite sure what I was getting, but it was dark, rich, and bold. A very rich brew.

Heavy aroma of malt with some winish notes and some dark bread with plum. Cloudy copper in the glass with a minimal head. Taste is really fruity with some notes of brown sugar, bread, toast, caramel and gentle grainy touch. Sticky, maybe little bit overwhelming, but I appreciate it.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2017 Bottle. Aromas of crystal malt, bread, some smokiness. Taste is crisp, sharp, malty, metalic. Thick and sticky mouthfeel. Bitter finish.

Daboch (190) - 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

DanielBrown (4549) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2017
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.

Grumpelmies (398) - GERMANY - OCT 21, 2017
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 (182) - 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 (5637) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2017

kraddel (9169) - 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.
