11.2 ounce swing top bottle.

It pours a very dark brown with reddish hues with a 1 finger head of tannish foam.

Big caramel malt in the nose, very sweet smelling, kind of a maple syrup sweetness.

Sweet, for sure in the taste, it also brings a close to bitter dark chocolate flavour that's very nice; cuts the sweetness. I'm getting some raisin like flavour and hints of other dark fruits.

I'd call this full bodied as it's very thick and luxurious to my palate. Lightish carbonation.

Wow, this is a grand brew, very enjoyable and satisfying.

Dark rich light fruit and toffee, nice cap to a great evening.

Fantastic. Like a cross between a Belgian quad and a barleywine. Well balanced with a bit of boozy warmth

I've been lucky enough to visit the Uerige brewhouse in Düsseldorf (freshest altbier you can get), however their stronger doppelsticke was unavailable at the time. I've come across the brand again stateside, and this time lucky enough to have a 330 ml swingtop bottle ready to consume. Here's to my 29th birthday! On to the beer:

Very dark brown colored and topped with a short head which provides decent head retention. I got too aggressive with the pour and accidently poured the dregs into my glass, so I'm left with an eyesore of chunks towards the bottom. It smells like fun. It has an overall sweet aroma with raisins, brown sugar, grapes, sap, and figs.

What a flavor as well! It's a beefy and completely different animal from the standard house altbier. Full flavored and full bodied with a wet kiss of alcohol, strong fig and raisin notes, and bittersweet aftertaste.

This will put some warmth on my body. This is one beer that every beer geek needs to try on their journey.

I poured a bottle into a thistle glass.

Appearance- Cloudy dark brown color with a half a fingers worth of head. Light amount of runny lacing. It has a small amount of chalk like yeast residue in the bottom of the glass.

Smell- Malty sweet smell with caramel, raisin, and fig aromas.

Taste- Very sweet with a strong flavor of figs and raisins. There are also hints of caramel and toffee.

Mouthfeel- Thick and sticky feeling. An average amount of carbonation.

Overall- I didn't care for this beer. The aromas and flavors were good but it was a bit too sweet for me. I also didn't care for the excessively thick and sticky mouthfeel.

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

Undated bottle at 45 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of malt
Head average (3 cm), light brown, creamy, slowly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing excellent, covering the inside with mostly small bubbles
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor begins with marked sweet malt presence with a burst of hop bitterness which quickly fades back into the malt backbone; no alcohol, no diacetyl. Ends slightly bitter.
Palate medium to full, creamy, lively carbonation.

Definitely sticke – a malt-heavy altbier that I could drink all day. Its appearance is outstanding, saying “Trink” while its flavor makes you want to drain the glass (or bottle or tap). A lovely malt bomb!
