BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Uerige Obergärige Hausbrauerei
Germany
uerige.de

Style: Altbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Pours a murky, ruby-brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is filled with sweet caramel, dark fruit, and toffee. There are hops, but they are somewhat muted by the malt. There is a heavy breadiness in the flavor with plenty of hop bitterness for balance. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, thick texture and a bittersweet finish.

Overall, this is smooth and highly drinkable with layers of flavor and plenty of body; the trademark and beauty of so many classic German beers.

Aroma is really nice. The bottle had a solid pop when it opened and immediately there was a definite aroma of toffee. Head was thick, creamy and fairly long lasting. The rest of the aroma was roast, dark malt. Flavor's only slightly similar to nose as the strong carbonation dominates. Same for body. This would have been so much better, if not for the heavy carbonation. Still, a very good beer. Easy drinking.

Classic altbier from one of the originals. Clear dark brown, dark and smoky, roast grains and nuts. Bitterness comes more from the roast grains than the hops. This is an altbier against which to judge all others.

From a 11.2 oz swingtop into a willi becher

A: sepia brown with a little reddish tint in the light...2 finger khaki head that subsides and leaves some fairly nice lacing.

S: good bready toasty warm malts, some caramel, some nuttiness, faint grassy noble hippiness.

T: What one would expect from the nose...good balance, rich layers of flavor...a little chocolate in there, the roasted malt lingers in a very pleasant way.
