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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Bottle purchased from Nathaniel Square Corner Store. A really cool looking flip top bottle, very unique.

Pours a bronzed, rusty thick looking brown. 1 inch head, no real lacing.

Smells like toffee and caramel.

Tastes incredible. Strong malt flavors hit at every turn- sweet caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toast, biscuity malt, etc. The German hops impart a slight spiciness to the proceedings, very grassy, and a tiny bit floral.

Very crisp, dry mouthfeel. Medium bodied, well carbonated.

The best of this style that I've tried, though I have not tried many.

The nose is spectacular. There is a malty bearing on the nose that promises richness and depth. It's sweet but not cloying. It's rich but not too nutty. There is a brilliant hop character on the nose that is at once both vibrant and restrained. It is as though a bountiful fruit character wants to explode from them but instead you have a perfect floral sweetness. A succulence that is the essence of the hops it self without embellishment. There is a bit of spice or pepper to the nose that is firm but not too loud.

The mouthfeel is incredible. Smooth, full of flavor and yet light. It travels with ease over the palate with the grain sporting a bit of dapper complexity even thought it does not evidence many flavors. It has a layered sweet presence that deepens and enriches the beer. It is also a dry grain that takes the mid palate. There is a bounty of hops on the palate that never evidence any fruit you can name although they seem ready to burst forth. They are sweet and delectable in and of themselves and their restraint is no loss to the perfect balance of this beer. Smooth. No bitter although you can taste the bitter from the hops subtly as if a shadow. A touch of alcohol lightly grazes the palate and it's finished now.

This beer is pristine and wonderful. It is brewed with care and expertly in accord with the purity laws of 1516. A masterpiece waiting to delight you with it's malt richness, with the bounty of the hop flower,clean and crisp as much from malt as from carbonation. Excellent!

This pours a muddy brown color with a slight beige head. The aroma is slightly malty but that’s about it. It has a very interesting malt flavor to it. There are hints of caramel as well as a little sourness. Lot of unique, hard to describe flavors to describe, but interesting never-the-less.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Poured from the (cool) swing-top bottle into a SA Perfect Pint glass. Color is a solid brown with large carbonation bubbles visible at the bottom of the beer ascending to what starts as a nice one-fingered head. The head slowly dissipates to a somewhat rocky-lacing type foam, a few big bubbles, most small.

S: Nose is notes of roasted malts, a slight breadiness, caramel sweetness and dark fruits. I'm picking up some notes of dates and maybe figs. A nice overall toasted quality.

T: Similar to the nose, those the caramel, malty flavors dominate with some nuttiness in the mix. A light amount of hops are present as well.I don't really pick up anything else that is particularly noticeable.

M: Very slick, almost oily, fairly viscous with a fair amount of carbonation that works quite well with the light hoppiness and maltiness. Alcohol is noticeable, but not particularly aggressive.

O: Delicious. I would get this again, quite tasty, enjoyable, and drinkable.

Classic flip top bottle served in a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Why not?

A - Dark ruddy brown with a small tan cap that slowly dissipates.

S - Sticky dark malts, raisins, dates, cooked caramel, dark bread, molasses, deep malt aroma, honey sweetness, really yeasty as it sets.

T - Follows the nose with big dark bread malt, sticky dates, nutty, burnt/charred fig bread, vanilla, spicy hops adds some peppery bitterness. Sweet and rich caramel, with a wheat cracker like dryness overtaking the sweetness. Grassy hops and dark bread crust create a dry rustic finish.

M - Rich feel, chewy body, carbonation is right on, dry spicy finish.

Awesome! Sweet and rich but with a sweeping dryness. Spicy hops really showed up to combat the deep dark bready malts. I loved the sweet nutty caramel malt seemed sweet but actually was not. Almost like tricking your brain. Great layering effects and a standout brew for sure.

Bottle poured into a tulip
Bottled on 01.11, code 01.12, whatever that means.

A- Pours hazy dark amber. A bubbly one finger of a tan head.

S- A big grain on the nose, A bit of Munich and pilsner malt. A slight caramel and yeasty esters. A sour fruityness.

T- A bit of caramel at first. A frothy, foamy caramel flavor. A breddy, yeasty flavor as well. A bit of dark fruit to this beer, A fig and dry raisin. A bit of this beer actually reminds me of wine, a dry quality and an alcohol feel on the tongue. A slight lemon grass note, herbal oniony grass notes as well. A strange and complex beer.

M- Thick on feel for the ABV, higher in carbonation. A slightly strange alcohol feel in the aftertaste.

O- A very weird beer. Certainly different from what you expect from an altbier.

I feel like this is a German beer lover's beer.

A nice chestnut color with lace on the side of the glass that's going nowhere.

The nose is sweet hazelnut up front and lingering leather.

As far as taste goes, its got a nice hop spike that isn't altogether indicative of other German darker brews I'm familiar with. Just the right amount of roasted malts commingle with earthy tobacco notes.

Delicious & worth the price tag.

Amber copper color. Poured four fingers of thick off-white head with long retention and leaving marks.
Nice aroma of piney and floral hops, slightly toasted malts and notes of cinnamon and caramel.
Very tasteful beer, mild toasted malt, spices and caramel. Delicious bitterness with grassy and earthy hops. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body and low carbonation, 6% ABV is well hidden.
Great beer, I just found grace in Altbiers just after dinking the Uerige. Flavorful, hoppy with good drinkability.

11.2oz bottle

A- Hazy light brown in colour. Head is off-white/very light brown, quite fluffy. Shows nice retention and lacing

S- Caramel malts, along with bready notes and maybe a slight roasted touch. On the back, a faint sour hint is backed up by fruity notes of raisin and maybe apple. Some kind of bitterness which i couldn't actually define is present, maybe i would call it just plain bitterness, with no specific notes to it; it's definitely present but not at all intrusive

T- Pretty much what the smell suggested. A very soft feel overall, malty notes of caramel with a touch of grainy/bready feel. A gentle touch of bitterness is easily noticed on both tongue and aftertaste, bringing a floral/grassy note. In the middle, a lot of other notes can be noticed here and rhere, bringing very nice complexity: a slightly sour feel, apple, some kind of a white-wine feel, maybe even chocolate

M- As mentioned, very soft mouthfell, though some crispness is still showing through, bringing just the right amount of life. A very gentle, delicate mouthfeel, just like the beer

O- Altbiers are a classic. Beers that you drink with ease, like all germans, but in that case with their own flavours and peculiarities. This one is the perfect representation of the style. Great drinkabilty, complexity and balance

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A - Hazy, dark burnt orange to brown color with a small off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Plenty of little floaters. Leaves a bit of lacing down the glass.

S - Raisins, plums, toasted malts and a bit of a barnyard hop aroma. Smells very sweet, and not super complex, but definitely intriguing.

T - Following the nose, a very tasty, fruity blend of raisins, plums, and sweet malt. Also a slight hop bitterness, without much in the way of hop aroma or taste other than a little of that earthy, barnyard smell I was picking up. Also a little toastiness and a touch of yeast. Very well balanced in the way it's presented - simple, yet complex.

M - Fairly heavy, yet crisp. Moderate carbonation. A satisfying snack.

O - My first proper German Alt, and I was blown away. Touched on some of the same things I love about Scotch Ales. I'm sure there are plenty other great ones out there, but there aren't a whole lot available from what I could see, and the couple American versions I've had were much more like standard American Amber Ales. I'll definitely be seeking out more like this and would get this one again in a heartbeat.

4.98/5  rDev +20.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

appearance; about 1cm of an off white head, a bit sticky, leaving beautiful rings. Body is a slightly dusty cherry brown.

smell; dusty malts, a bit of sweetness and husk powder balance. Sour mash oders blend nicely with lemony hops. Well balanced and appetizing. Some roasted caramelized characters come out as well. Alcohol soaked cherries come to mind.

taste; just like the original, not much alcohol is perceived, well hidden but it's their. Sharp bitter rind hops in the aftertaste are easily tamed and mellowed out by a maltyness that is almost sweet but grainy enough to be far from moderately cloying. Slightest bit of dark chocolate in the aftertaste.

mouthfeel; a very crisp and refreshing and at the same time, dry beer. Classicly medium bodied with a light, wet finish. Some slight puckering in the aftertaste.

overall; a higher alchol version of the original, all in all, one of the best!

Tasted On: 06-12-2012
Freshness: Best by 01-2012
Packaging: 330ml brown bottle, swing-top
Glassware: Stange
Purchased: Single from Liquor Express, Huntsville AL

I didn't realize until I got home that this bottle was marked with a best by date of 01-2012. Bad on the store for stocking the beer past its freshness date and bad on me for not being more attentive. However, I think the beer still tasted fine.

A: The beer pours a dark copper color, clear, and is topped by a huge head. Lots of carbonation seen in the glass. Both head retention and lacing are very good.

S: Aromas are first malty sweet, then dark ripened fruit, plus earthy hops with smells of spice and wood. Very nice aroma profile.

T: The taste surprised me initially with a hop bite I wasn't anticipating, based on the aromas. Caramel malt sweetness, with a nutty character is there, but this beer is definitely more bitter than sweet. Good balance of malts and hops.

M: Medium bodied, with low to medium levels of carbonation. The beer finishes dry and moderately bitter.

O: I haven't had many altbiers, so I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. I would describe it as a moderately-hoppy brown ale. Well constructed and balanced, I'd also like to try this again with less age on it.

Poured from a 33cL bottle into a brandy snifter. Bottled on 04.10 (presumably March 2010?). Code 02.11.

A: The swingtop opens with a nice pop, but there is very little head. Hazy mud brown, barely translucent. Vague lacing.

S: Funky yeast. Sour of stale, but also vaguely sour. Grapes! Sweetish-strong malt.

T/M: Interesting. I wonder if this bottle, at two years old, isn't a little too alt. Lightly carbonated, but the mouthfeel is almost flat, and the taste is more so. Very light purple grapes, moldy yeast, and bland malt.

O: I did not much enjoy this beer. Not recommended. I'd be open to trying a younger bottle far in the future though.

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A - Pours a deep brown with tall, foamy cap. Not especially transparent, but more translucent that I expected. Kinda nice thinking I'll get a rich beer that's also drinkable.

A - Non-descript. Expected bigger malt notes, some complextiy of caramel and bread, even chocolate. More estery... picking up that this is definitely an Ale.

T - Wow. Surprise of the night. Last things first... this finishes with a definite noble hop bite. It reminds me of when I had been living in Europe, denied hoppy ales for months, and would get blasts of biting spicey hops from local Lagers, like Zywiec and Pilsner Urquell.

Beyond that, what can I say? I guess there's some interesting character developing from the base malt that distinguishes this from your BMC. Some fruity esters keeping it complex.

Really this could pass more for an English Bitter than anything else.

M - So wet and lean. Nothing like I had hoped for, and it's nothing I would want in a beer this strength... at least one meant to be malty.

O - Lame. Big Let down. Sure, I respect what they're doing. And I'll try the doppelsticke. But this beer isn't worth the price.

There's a reason English Ales, not German beers, have inspired the craft brew revolution. I wish these guys would do more with the little piece of history they've got.

Almost clear, amber brown with lively carbonation and a huge off-white creamy head. There is patchy lacing on the Uerige stange.

The aroma is stronger while pouring than in the glass with almond paste, but not too sweet. There are lots of subtle nuts and light malt aromas.

Light flavors are upstaged by the bitterness which opens up after a few moments, but is far from strong. This one is quite nutty with some traces of unsweetened tea. There is a strong moderate finish with honey flavors embedded.

A light body with thin texture and modest astringency. Carbonation is lively and there is only a slight trace of alcohol.

This is a surprisingly easy going beer which could pair well with lunch or a relaxing afternoon.

A: Pours murky brown with hints of amber in color with a little visible carbonation of small bubbles at the edges of the glass near the head. The head is frothy light tan and about two fingers in height. There is good head retention and moderate lacing.

S: Aromas of toasty/bready malts and light amounts of floral hops.

T: The flavors of the malts and the hops in this beer are very well balanced - though there is a little bitterness that is discernible from the hops. The flavors are complex with a little it of earthiness to them.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation and slightly dry.

O: After visiting Dusseldorf about 2 years ago, I became a huge fan of altbier. I really enjoy most of the German offerings I have had though the experience in Dusseldorf makes it so mush more enjoyable (fresh from the casks and with the waiters walking around with continuous fresh glasses, marking the coaster to indicate how many you consumed). This beer is highly sessionable and quite enjoyable - the flavors complement fall/winter foods really well.

Bottled 01/2011; best by 01/2012:

The beer poured a dark reddish or maybe even light brown, cola color that produced a nice, tight white head that was retained nicely and left some lacing.

The beer gave off a nice toasted bready aroma and another sweet aroma that I couldn't put my finger on.

The beer had full flavor that had a bready sweet beginning along with a touch of nut to it with a very light hop presence.

The body was a little lighter than expected, but still good. The beer was nicely carbonated and pretty easy to drink. Overall, a good beer and one that I can appreciate.

Bottled 01/2011; best by 01/2012. Just made it...

Pours a clear mahogany color with a small but lasting, lace-inducing white head.

Aromas begin with a great deal of toasted fresh bread with earthy hints of nuts and and molasses. Plenty of those dark fruits, too. Light yeasty clove aromas emerge as it warms.

The tastes begin with dark, scorched caramel with a bit of light nuttiness once again. Sweetness remains light. There's a flash of earthy bitterness with strong notes of wood that further builds into an exceedingly, and rather surprising dry finish. Light dark fruit notes emerge as it warms.

The mouthfeel is medium to light bodied with an adequate medium amount of carbonation. Finish is quite dry and crisp.

Overall I was staidly dissapointed with this compared to the doppel- stickle version from this brewery. Aromas were quite inviting albeit mellow but the flavor profile was just flat; like the brewer forgot an ingredient or something. Not something I plan to revisit and not recommended. Search out the purple label, pass on this lighter, watered down version (not literally, but that's how it tastes).

Bottle from Premier Gourmet, 11.2oz bottle with the funky swing-top. Split with Steve, into a tulip.

Poured a deep orange brown, darker than the Classic Altbier. Still an off-white head nonetheless, a think collar, some spotty lace and a thin film of retention. Nose is much hoppier than the Classic Altbier, with only a fraction of the dark fruit notes. More more bread, spicy and herbal hop notes. Taste still has a bit of the fruit as well, but still less prominent than the Classic. A bit of bread and spicy, herbal German hop notes. Lengthy bitter and drying finish. Medium feel and low carbonation. More bitter than the Classic Altbier, and a tad more enjoyable.

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.

Uerige Sticke has a cloudy body that mixes various shades of orange and red with a little bit of brown. A fine sheen of sediment hangs throughout the beer. The head is huge, about three fingers tall, and the retention is pretty good. It also manages to leave thick tendrils of off-white foam on the glass.

Toasted malt, bread, chocolate, toffee and hints of fruit make up the aroma.

Earthy hops lead things off, with a moderate amount of bitterness and a good bit of lemongrass. Toasted malts pair with bread and cracker from the malts. A little bit of dry, cocoa flavors. The malt profile is dry more than sweet, but a little bit of toffee does come through in the background to add some sweetness to the beer. Just a hint of fruit is the background from the yeast, but it's barely noticeable. The finish has a good bit of bitterness and a small burst of warmth. The aftertaste is strong, mixing malt and noble hops.

The body is on the high side of medium, and the carbonation is silky and full. Great feel.

Ueridge Sticke is quite a good altbier. It's good enough that I will probably try their other offerings (which are almost all alts).
