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.

This was another birthday gift. Have to admit, I had never seen this beer before, so thanks friends. I'm pretty sure they picked it out because of the bottle, but their system worked.

Nice pour into a pint glass with a great head. Really foamy and unusually stiff foam. The color was inviting and the carbonation had really small and effervescent bubbles that never ended.

Some cinnamon in the nose. Crisp and complex browned butter taste with a clean finish and nice mouthfeel. Very representative German tasting beer.

On the take-home scale I would rate this as a six pack. Not your everyday beer unless you are a German beer kinda person.

On-tap at Trappeze in Athens, GA.

Pours a clear amber color with a large off-white head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of grainy caramel malts with hints of toastiness. Also present are very light earthy hop and indistinct fruit aromas.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Smooth and moderately dry caramel malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by hints of toasted malts. Midway through the sip mild amounts of earthy hops come into play before fading out into a moderately bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a smooth thickness with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have a few more.

Overall this was a simple yet very good beer and one that to me seems like a standard-bearer for the style. Well worth a shot if you see it around.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: It's chestnut brown in color with some garnet and bronze highlights. There's a small amount of sediment swimming through it. It's topped with a light tan head that's about two fingers deep. Retention was very good and it left a nice thick coat of lace in its wake.

Smell: The nose is good despite being a little weak. It's sweet and very malty smelling. Predominantly a mix of caramel/toffee with some roasted malt thrown in for good measure. At the secondary level, there's an interesting praline-like scent. It's a nice feature and complements the other components well. There's a prominent yeasty or biscuity aroma. Perhaps some light spices emerge toward the end. No alcohol is noted.

Taste: It's definitely sweet and has a very nice caramel/toffee malt flavor. There's definitely some roasted malts that follow and compete hard for the limelight. It's slightly spicy and features some light pepper and cinnamon flavors. Yeast is notable and sticks through into the aftertaste. There's a lot going on in the flavor here. It's very deep and I'm certain that I've missed a couple of spices and perhaps some other light, ancillary flavors. It really is that deep. No alcohol is noticeable. Finishes sweet and slightly spicy.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: It features a medium body and has a nice, smooth feel. Carbonation feels light and does its job well. It's not quite lush, but it is nice and smooth. Drinkability is very good. It's got a ton of flavor and character. At 6%, abv really lends itself to good drinkability.

I'm damn impressed with Uerige Sticke. It's my first experience with the beer and it's left a lasting impression. The nose could use a tad more strength, but otherwise, it's very impressive. There's a ton of flavor crammed into this bottle and it's well worth the experience. Definitely one to check out.

Very cool bottle.

Pours a nice red-copper with a small, bubbly head.

Aroma of toasted malt, some caramel and weak herbal hops. A mellow brown sugar comes through as it warms.

Fairly smooth, medium caramel malt flavors with some toasted flavors. A bit of a nutty flavor begins to emerge midway through as does a light hop bitterness. As the beer warms, a taste I would describe as brown-sugar biscuits emerges as well.

Superemely drinkable. I have limited experience with the style, Alaskan Amber being the only other, but this blows that away.

A huge thanks goes out to BA Luckysevens82 for the trade!

Uerige Sticke: A gift from a gentleman BA.

First, I’ve got to comment on the bottle: it is embossed glass, with a thin neck that is at least five inches long ending in a swingtop cap. Very nice.

Very interesting color: deep reddish brown, very clear, no haze or sediment. The head is a little disappointing, what little there was dissipated very quickly, and left virtually no lacing whatsoever.

The aroma is fairly mild, there are scents of spices, like nutmeg and cloves. A slight bit of malt aroma as well.

The taste is quite clean and very flavorful. Some slight spiciness is immediately notable, leading to fairly nice flavors of breaded malts, almost like toasted cinnamon bread. Nice hop flavor helps to balance out and clean up the lingering malt flavors. Very light bodied and extremely easy to drink. Clearly, well worth searching out on the rare occasions this beer hits our shores.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a Unibroue tulip. Thick head last for a moment before fading into a thin sheet of foam. Aroma is of raisins mainly with some other dark fruit aromas and sweet malts. Tongue is thoroughly coated with the sticky flavors of this wonderful brew. Taste is also mainly raisins, some hops and sweet malts upon warming. A really tasty treat, an obvious perfect interpretation of the altbier style, with no alcohol noted upon tasting whatsoever.

Poured at ChurchKey in DC. Dark amber, hazy, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate malty and caramel sweetish aroma, some roastiness and hoppyness, light alcohol. Body is average, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some alcohol and light caramel. Nice hoppy aroma, but flavor lacks the hoppyness – quite a lot of sweet malty alcohol in the flavor/finish.

The bottle is a nice swing top style with a long thin neck and is only 11.2oz. It is a clear, dark copper with a thin head. The aroma is of roasted nuts and hops. The nutty maltiness has some caramel in the taste. The finish is a big hop bitterness. The hops are noble and floral. This is a great beer to quaf, though it is a bit expensive at almost $4 for not even 12oz.

Medium to full body with a sticky texture.

Medium complex balanced flavor with a medium balanced finish of moderate duration.

Very interesting beer and one of my top rated active bottled beers for the Altbier style.

Pale brown color with slight haze. Medium tan foam with solid carbonation below. The aroma is nutty with a hint of chocolate and caramel, plus some earthy spice. The hop aroma is pronounced with a light grassiness.

Toasty malt flavors well balanced by the hop bitterness. Drying finish with a bit of vegetal character, nice. The taste is quite rich/complex without being overpowering. Light in body with decent carbonation, pretty unremarkable.

Overall a very well-balanced beer, and if others are like it then I will definitely seek out more from this style...

4.35/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours out a really nice rustic amber/copper with a thin lacing that stays with you for a while.

Smell: Complexity is a fine thing. All sorts of goodies can be detected here. Nuts, toasted aromas, caramel, malts and a good dose of some dark fruits are in the backround to balance it all out.

Taste: A nice amount of malts start out in this brew and is the main backbone of this beer as well. Then some toffee and nuts blend in towards the middle and hops show up in the backround to make this a tasty brew.

Mouthfeel: Perhaps a little thin and watery at times. Carbonation is very soft in this brew and you won't notice it until the it mixes in at the tail end, which also makes the aftertaste a little spritzy.

Drinkability: Besides the mouthfeel, this was a really good beer and a nice example of an Alt beer. Lookout though, this one could really hurt your wallet if you do like it.

Very deep orange in color topped by a surprisingly lightweight frothy head that seemed sticky. Floral (but not fruity) hops in the nose with notes of lemon oil and dry grass. The body is light considering the amount of malt that went into this 7% beer, but it not at all inappropriate for the style. Carbonation is perfect. This is a pleasure to have in my mouth. The bubbles are the perfect size and prick my tongue at just the right rate. Wow. Tastes about what you would expect from a good alt plus a little more. Good malt presence made up of a simple caramel flavor and fairly straightforward snappy, fine grained bitterness. There is also an unexpected wet earth, mineral quality that's probably derived from the hops and really sets the tone of the beer. As it warm, a slightly buttery toffee note came out along with a hint of toastiness. Good stuff.

I hope everyone who wants to try this gets a chance while it’s here in the States. Because it is so limited, that will probably not be the case. Anyway, snap ‘em up!

I have been waiting to try this beer. People have been raving about it. Very cool bottle with a very cool presentation. After breaking the paper and sliding the wire I hear a large POP. I am using a real Alt glass (.2l) which is cool.

Pours out a reddish copper color with a good size head that lasts and lasts. The smell is malty with just a hint of hops in the background. Caramel is mostly what I pick up. Taste is not what I expected at all. Much more clean but still full of flavor. Sweet in the beginning but gives way to something a bit metallic. The ending has a nice hop bite. The flavors just seem to last and last in my mouth. I would love to try this beer from the cask. I truely hope to enjoy this beer some day in Germany.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

very custom 350 ml bottle into POM stange. bottled on 27.10, code 1127. whatever

A - a very richly dark copper colour for the body. a full two finger frothy head, off white or maybe a cream colour. head is very creamy, and retains very well. this beer almost perfectly hits the description of what an altbier should be, the only problem is that the body is a bit too dark. other than that, it has the trademark copper tinge, big creamy head and great lacing and head retention.

S - the malts pretty much dominate the nose. caramel malts, and rich hearty roasted barley are the majority of the top and middle notes. there are some shadows of hops in the base scents, but not enough. nose is not strong enough in general to be up to par with the best.

T - a good malty back with some nice aromatic and flavourful hops to liven up the taste. initial taste is a pretty even profile of bitter hops, and roasted malts, most noticeable is the barley; maybe the hops outweigh the malts, but only by a small margin. a really great tasting beer, malts are quite dynamic, as compared to the one sided hops. finish is slightly sweet, roasty malts add some savoriness, and a pinch of the hops help round out the taste. the after taste is a bitter, and savory from barley. subtlety is the name of the game for this beer, there is so much to explore and taste, but one has to make the concerted effort to find the myriad of savory, sweet, and bitter flavours. the finish could be a bit drier, but this is just quibbling.

MF&D - for a beer that is to have a medium body, i think this one is a bit too light. carbonation is moderate, but serves nothing to enhance the size of the body. either way, the drinkability is superb, could have many more rounds of this guy.

brought a bottle back with me to beijing

hazy and dark reddish brown. some head, which fades to a thin layer. some lacing.

aroma is roasted malts, earthy and herbal hop tones. maybe some raisins.

again a rich, malty character with some roasted flavor too. great carmelization that leads into an almost semi-sweet finish. this is balanced by the moderate bitterness. some mildly herbal hop flavor peeks through here and there.

smooth, with some stickiness (no pun intended). lively carbonation.

wow, so this is what an alt is supposed to be?! double bag is a decent beer, but can't hold a candle to this!

11.2 oz inside one of the coolest looking bottles i have seen.

A: red. seriously. holding this one up to the light shows a beautiful garnet body. it looks hazy, but it is hard to tell with such a deep hued body. reddish hints in a white creamy head. good retention and great lacing.

S: a sweet caramel graininess is just about the only aroma present here. simple, yet inviting.

T: starts with a bitter zang. chewy caramel toasted grains are quick to follow. a little bit sour in an otherwise dry finish. sort of clove-like as well? very mild clove. definitely has a sulfur presence.

M: moderately high carbonation on a medium body.

D: fantastically flavorful and drinkable. this is my first alt reviewed and it is interesting to think this is the slightly beefier version from Uerige. it would be neat to try the classic, sticke, and doppel side by side. overall, very enjoyable brew.

Bottle purchased from Beertopia in Omaha, NE.
1. Bottled on 01.11 with a best by code of 01.12.
2. Bottled on 06.11, best by , enjoyed 8/2/13
Poured into an Ayinger willi glass.

From repeated consumption, this is best when as fresh as possible. The second bottle I'm rating, about a year post-best by date, is not nearly as good as remembered. This was perhaps the fourth or fifth altbier I've tried, and is generally excellent, even if judged by general qualities and not by style. Definitely one to consider if in the mood for a German style.

Pours a very fine foam, pale tan in color, to about 3cm in height. This descends, very slowly (excellent retention), to a fine cap atop the body, leaving generous lacing as it does so. Body is a cloudy, washed-out, dark amber hue both in and out of the light. Carbonation is present through the mostly transparent (10-20% opaque) body, moderate in number and activity.

Aroma is complex and interesting, of toasted bread and caramel malts, mildly peaty, woodsy, and spicy hops, and faint hints of iron, cocoa, and coconut.

Taste opens with prominently spicy hop flavor, which transitions to a cacao sharpness tempered by caramel and Munich malt sweetness and nuttiness by mid-palate. Back of the tongue renews hop presence with some moderate bitterness, alongside some cocoa powder, toasted malt, and mild coconut. Aftertaste is of herbal and woodsy hops, fairly strong bitterness, with dark toast and caramel malt influences.

Body is decidedly medium, with a high enough level of carbonation to let itself be felt, but not painful. Dry throughout, maybe from tannins, which could explain the constant bitter cacao aromas and tastes I was picking up on. Result is a fairly crisp beer that's very dry in the finish.

$3.49 for 11.2 oz bottle at the Dilly Deli in Cincinnati. Pours an actively carbonated, clear mahogany body with an attractive, tightknit,one finger head that is between beige and offwhite. Good retention and lots of patchy lace.
Aroma begins malty, with caramel, toffee, and a hint of chocolate, quickly followed by notes of floral and fruity(grape) hops in the background.
Mouthfeel is creamy and medium bodied, perfectly carbonated, and has a pleasant tingle of hops.
Taste is big for an Alt, lots of Munich style maltiness delivers notes of the caramel, toffee, and chocolate found in the nose, but the hops profile is sturdy and demanding of your attention. Hops are floral, as well as citrus, delivering a note of orange slice in the middle, and meld very well with the big malts. Ideally balanced, overall, and an abundance of pleasant flavors here.
Certainly, the best altbier I've ever had. Too bad this is brewed only two days a year, making it a tough find.

While browsing for beer in Indiana I came across this goodie I had heard so much about at this past Real Ale Fest in Chicago. Apparently there was a keg of it at Piece and I missed it completely. It went within half an hour I'm told.

Served at 50 to 53 degrees F. in a Duvel glass.

Very nice dark copper coler with a bone-white head that is moderate in height at first, then reduces to swirling skims. Nothing too impressive here.

The smell as a very subtle slightly roasty malt aroma on a background of hops. Slightly bitter smelling if you really take a big whiff.

Taste freakin knocked my socks off and curled my toes! Great roasty malt center with rays of bitter hops emanating from its core! Beautifully integrated and nicely intertwined. It ends with an armwrestling match between roasty malt and bitter hops. Just when you think one is winning, the other makes a comeback. This goes on for quite some time after the sip! Incredible.

The beer passes from cup to mouth to belly very nicely. In the mouth I feel a moderate carbonation of teeny tiny itsy bitsy bubbles caress my mouth like velvet and then slip on by.

I never tired from the malt and hops interplay the whole glass. It was a real treat to drink.

At 4.99 a bottle, this will be a rare treat for me when I return to Indiana to visit the fiancee's family.

Excited to try any beer that basically invents the style. One of the original Sticke Alts and after a few sips, still among the best. The beer begins with a bright, rust color with a froathy foamstand that raises to about an inch and disipates slowly through the session. Moderate caramel aromas swirl about a pungent grassy, fresh hop scent that promises a more hoppy Alt than most I've had. Flavors are more dry and better attenuated than the nose suggests. The beer has some low-lying sweetness but stronger caramel flavors. Cracker-like and lightly biscuit-like. The hops are quite strong and balances the beer beautifully. A firm bitterness hangs in the back of the throat while giving a firm floral, spicy, German hop, herbal-grassy flavor. Super crisp and dry in the body; the beer basically evaporates in the mouth. Finishes with a balanced caramel / hop blend that lingers well into the finish. A very drinkable, sessionable beer. Thanks again Clvand0.

11.2 oz awesome swing-top bottle into a snifter.

A: Rich reddish brown with a terrific head. Velvety little bubbles as well as some large soap bubbles. Great retention and spectacular lacing. Hazu and enticing. Awesome.

S: Sweet malts and alcohol warmth. There is also a subtle, fruity aroma, possibly apples. As it warms, there is the faintest hint of licorice.

T: This is a super-mellow beer. It opens up with sweet malts and a faint apple taste. It finishes with a subtle hop twang. Alcohol is not in evidence.

M: Velvety smooth mouthfeel. Medium body and weight. It is just heavy enough to satisfy, while being light enough to make it go down nice and easy.

D: Great drinkability. That one bottle went down so much faster than I would've liked. I am headed out in search of some more tomorrow morning. I could easily have several of these every day and be happy with them.

This is a great beer. It looks great, it tastes great, it's drinkable and the bottle is da proverbial bomb. This beer would appeal to fans of many beer styles, and I would highly recommend it to everyone.

Poured a bit hazy. Probably got bottom residuals in pour. Slightly off white, slight tan two fingered head that dissipates as expected. Leaves quite a bit if lacing and a thick top foam. Brown, clear.

S - sweet, malty with low hop aroma. No diacetyl or DMS. Caramel aroma, low roasted malt.

T - bitter. Just noticed that this bottled on 03.09. Is this old?
Sharp taste of alcohol because it is a sticke. Should be malty and a touch sweet. This tastes new. No off flavors but it is warming which seems odd. Roasted malt notes.

M - clean finish. Rounded and pleasant.

I have to compare this to another bottle with a different code.
