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.

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.

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.

I'll admit, of all the beers I have had over the years, traditional German altbiers are not my strong point. I tend to skew towards domestics, and altbiers are one of the few styles that do not seem to be prevalent in my area. So, in order to review this beer, I can't really compare it to other altbiers off the top of my head, but overall, Uerige Sticke stands it's ground as a solid ale! Unlike other brown ales, this altbier isn't overcome with molasses and caramel flavors, this has a more fruity flavor with a hint of smokiness. When poured, the head is lush, and when you take a sip, the suds stick to the liquid, giving a generous, aerated sipping quality that is quite refreshing. After you swish around the lovely flavor and swallow, the aftertaste maintains the essence of the beer itself, with no degradaton. A very tasty experience!

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.
