Notes/Commercial Description:
Uerige Sticke gibt es zwei Mal im Jahr im Ausschank - am jeweils dritten Dienstag im Januar und Oktober. Dieses Bier wird mit mehr Malz und Hopfen gebraut und ist deutlich gehaltvoller als Uerige Alt: Hinter dem intensiven, eleganten Aroma verbergen sich 6% Alkohol.

Der ungewöhnliche Name leitet sich davon ab, dass man in früheren Zeiten "stickum" ("hinter vorgehaltener Hand") weiter erzählte, dass der Braumeister wohl etwas zu großzügig beim Abwiegen der Zutaten war.

Der höhere Alkoholgehalt gestattet Lagerzeiten, die beträchtlich über das von uns garantierte Mindestfrischedatum hinausgehen.

Dark red and brown, good head of foam that shrinks slowly. Got good lacing.

Smells hoppy, almost if not a fruity sort of hoppiness going on. Some bread.

Nice hoppy fruity taste with a backbone of bread malt. Also some light caramel malt.

Medium body, lightish co2.

Pretty easy drinker and I love the swing tops their beers come in. Worth more purchases.

Grainy sweet bready malt and light fruit. Decent beer but not my favorite style.

Poured a dark reddish brown body with an aroma that mixes light hops and is mostly a sweet malt smell.
More malty than hoppy with a noticeable profile consisting of caramel, toffee and some dark fruits and a breadlike presence that gives it a fuller body.
Dry, easy finish for a simple but well-crafted beer that will please your sweet tooth but has just enough balance to not tire you out.

11.2 oz Swing top brown bottle. No freshness date noticed.
Served in a tall cylinder glass.
It pours a brown mahogany with a bubbly beige head.
A toasted malty aroma leads off and is followed by a light smell of fresh cut oak, iron, citrus and grass.
The flavors are malt-forward. Tastes of molasses, wood, raisins, light rum and slight metallic tang, make for an interesting flavor profile.

Very fluid and gulpable!

Great swing top bottle!

Poured from a swing top bottle into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: pours a murky brown with a thick head that retains well. Leaves a small amount of lacing.

Smell: sweet on the nose. Dark grains. Plums and raisins. Bread. Honey. Maybe tea.

Taste: the star of the show is definitely the sweetness of the malt. Serious taste of bread. Almost like a doppelbock in terms of sweetness. Just when you think the sweetness is going to get clawing, the hops level it off. Leaves with a cleaner finish than you would expect from the nose and initial hit of grains.

Mouthfeel: very smooth and pretty clean. Drinks like the 6% beer that it is.

Overall: definitely something different. As far as altbier goes, Sticke is certainly out of the box. More like a doppelbock than a kolsch. Definitely worth trying if you are looking for something big and different but still balanced.
