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.

Cool bottle with a flip-top. Pours a rocky light ivory head over clear light brown liquid. Fruity caramel malty nose with some discernible hop. Lots of hop bitterness in the taste with nutty, caramelly/roasty notes afterwards. Very bittersweet finish, with heaps of hops on the palate. A very interesting beer!

Bottle with Bottled-on date of 10/08.

Appearance: Pours a murky brown with 1 finger of clean, white head that doesn't stick at all.

Smell: Slightly sour with yeast and phenolic notes dominant. Fleeting hints of caramel and molasses that are almost imperceptible.

Taste: Yeast hits pretty strongly. Burnt malts and overall smokiness round out the center. Hop bite and phenols kick in at the very end and leave a refreshing and dry aftertaste.

Overall, goes down smoothly. Mouth is left slightly numb by the active carbonation and the generally strong taste. I was expecting a sweeter taste though judging by the smell.

Picked this up at State Line in Maryland. Served in a Mikasa tulip. Currently the #1 Altbier. Review #3000.

Pours a fairly-hazy dark tawny-mahogany with a thick off-white head that lasts for awhile and leaves quite a bit of lacing behind. The nose brings forward a good amount of bread crust and some earthy hops. Dry malt and a slight bit of roast. The flavor brings some light malty toasted character and some bread crust. Along with that, there's some earthy hops and an accompanying dryness. Light caramel character in there as it warms more, though the earthy hops really begin to take over, especially with the bitterness in the finish. Medium body and lighter carbonation. Really nice example of the style.

Bad ass bottle, if nothing else. Poured out to a brown amber color with a small head, and some traces of lace. Lower carbonation. Odors of sweet malt and hops were most noted, along with some alcohol. Taste was pretty good, flavors of sweet floral earth and malt, with a nice crips hoppy finish. Finished a bit dry, and rather smooth. A good beer, as now I look forward to trying some of the other varites from Uerige Obergärige Hausbrauerei. Recommended for those with a more developed taste.

Minimal liight tannish head that dissipates quickly. Nice amber brown hue. Fruity and toffee is the aroma that stands out. Medium sweetness that is balanced nicely with medium bitterness. Full body with a nice creamy texture. Somewhat long bitterness in the finish.

11.2 ounce flip top bottle. Copper colored with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is nuts and berries. Sweet malt flavor at first. It reminds me a little of gummy bears. Slightly bitter hop flavor in the finish. Mouthfeel is fuller than most beers of this style. A little syrupy. The drinkability is above average. There is nothing extraordinary about this beer, but it is still good.

A: pours dark brown/amber with a tan finger of slow falling head
S: heavy malt, a bit of sweet grain, somewhat reminds me of a bock. also caramel and burnt sugar.
T: lightly grainy sweet malt. a bit of burnt sugar and caramel with a light amount of bitter hop grassiness
M: carbonation makes it seem thicker than it is. nicely smooth
D: is good with balanced flavors and a nice change to try a new style. although price is a tad high for a 11.2oz bottle about $4.

Cool-looking flip-top bottle poured into the closest approximation I have to a Stange glass.

Solid brown in color. Hazy, though the bottle may have been agitated a little. Excellent head retention.

Smell is subtle, malty, a little sweet though not incredibly so. Taste is quite pleasant, again lots of caramel malt, still less "biscuity" than the Altbiers I'm used to but then again, those were all American so who knows. Alcohol comes through a bit, and there is some hop bitterness towards the end. Mouthfeel is very moderate, neither light nor heavy.

Overall, this is quite a good beer. Were it not for the label I would have pegged it as a slightly strong English brown ale by appearance and flavor. This bottle was a gusher probably due to mishandling so I will try to seek out another and update my review.

I had a bottle at Radegast in NYC.

Pours a cloudy, particulate brown. The beige head is thin and quickly fades to nothing. The aroma is rich and malty. There are notes of caramel, toffee and dark fruit. Swirling brings out a sharp character.

Sweet malts are definitely the focus of the beer, but they aren't too sweet. There's a boozy character upfront that mixes with the caramel and toffee flavors. There's an alcoholic spice and a moderate bitterness in the finish.

A bit sweet overall, but very flavorful.
