Pours a clean, dark brown color with a fluffy, eggshell white head.

Smell is unusually heavy for an Alt, this packs an intense amount of dry herbal hops and caramel sweet malts among toasty grains and fresh baked bread. Its sweetness is even more profound though, emphasizing the higher abv level of this on the nose, producing a flimsy floral note, which gets accompanied by a copious amount of caramel.

Has a velvet, fuller mouthfeel, creamy and well balanced with a light effervescent finish, mellowing the omnipresent malts.

Tastes of rock sugars, molasses and a whiff of licorice, which all settle harmoniously among the more typical rustic malt foundation of the beer. A profound hop bitterness not only brings a herbal quality to the palate but also a note of ripe oranges, wrapped up by sweet caramel and lots of toffee. Finishes almost calm in comparison to its middle part and beginning, with prevailing caramel, toffee, dried berries, bakers chocolate and a still noteable hoppiness.

Decadent and rich, this does not push the Sticke any further but invents a whole new twist to the Alt genre. Way sweeter, overboarding with flavors and a mean, well working hop punch. Challenging but incredibly well build.

330 ml bottle, Holy Craft Beer Store, Dussledorf - Pours dark brown with a thin white head which quickly recedes. Aroma - dark stone fruits, roasted malts, caramel. Taste - sweet, dark stone fruits, caramel, roasted malts, crisp bitter finish with a little alcoholic warmth. Nice sipper high ABV alt bier and a little different to the norm.

L: Dark chestnut, amber hints, very dark
S: Sweet malt, mildew, wet bread, if "heavy" had a smell this would be it
T: This "altbier" just tastes old, very malty, hints of dark fruit, kind of tastes like an old wet rag
F: It is smooth, its very heavy and has a much higher gravity than other "Altbiers" I've had before
O: I was looking forward to this beer but the aroma and taste are extremely over powering. Its got a cool bottle and I can appreciate the effort but for me it wasn't good

Incredibly dark tan color -nearly black - with excellent velvety foam head. Lots of mellowed sweet malt flavor with notes of sticky toffee, caramel & fig. Some faint floral, dry hops in the background. treacly & coating mouthfeel at first but thins out considerably, the fruit notes are darker than on the nose, with a burnt raisin pudding flavor and a some distant coffee notes from the roasted malt. Great if you like old ales or very sweet malt heavy beers.
