It pours murky brown with virtually no head whatsoever. The aroma is super malty and fairly boozy, while the taste is insanely sweet in a cloying way. Very chewable. Not a big fan I have to admit.

The beer is a dark brown color with a lot of floaters in it. The head was very short lived. Smells of caramel, dark fruits, and teriyaki. The beer tastes sweet at first and then is followed by a bitterness and spice. It really tastes like Chinese food. The beer a little chewy I want to say. It feels more like a meal than a beer.

This doppelsticke altbier pours a cloudy chocolate color with a very faint red tint and a medium frothy white head. The smell is of dark brown bread, with some sweetness (brown sugar and caramel), and some alcohol. It is a very malt forward smell, reminiscent of a doppelbock, but with some differences. The flavor is quite intense and unique for beers that I have tried. There is a strong dark brown bread element, a little brown sugar sweetness, some dark fruit, some spiciness, like a rye maybe, and significant alcohol flavor. The alcohol flavor is a little stronger than I would expect at 8.5%. This is a very robust flavor. The body is quite heavy and the finish is fairly creamy. This is a tough beer to review because I’ve never tried another doppelsticke altbier, which is apparently a much more robust form of altbier. If this beer is representative they are really not at all like normal altbiers and are much closer to doppelbocks actually. This is a real punch you in the face beer, which I respect. A lot of the best doppelbocks that I’ve had have a more polished flavor and many have more alcohol also, so I can’t say that this is better than those, but it is definitely an interesting beer that is worth trying though I couldn’t drink more than one of these in a night.

L- Deep brown, dish watery, soupy looking beer. Lots of floaters. Very interesting. Also a small lacy head.
S- Mollasses, dark fruit, biscuit, umami savory aroma, soy sauce.
T- Sweet, once again umami savory flavor that I can't completely grasp, soy sauce, banana, and booziness.
F- Thick Sticky and chewy.
O-Interesting and weird beer that I definitely enjoyed. The most interesting beer I've ever had. Much original flare to this one.

pursuing a New Year's resolution to try more beer styles, I picked up a bottle of this when shopping. Nifty bottle. There's a clearly indicated location for a date code on the seal which had nothing printed on it. The brewery's website mentions that some aficionados age this for a year, and i would really like to know when this was bottled since it had issues. Perhaps cellaring would have improved things. The Uerige website notes that this is specifically produced for the American market and that it's brew with a lot more of everything in it, so not so typical for the style. Poured this without letting the sediment pass into the glass.

Smell - breakfast rolls, chocolate, plums.
Appearance - cola brown with absolutely zero head, some traces of lacing as I got to the bottom of the glass.
Taste - great. Everything in the smell is present along with further complexity and spiciness. Allspice, brunt toast and ground ginger. Alcohol completely hidden.
Mouthfeel - just enough carbonation to say it existed. Very substantial, almost syrupy.

Overall I'm glad i bought this even though I think this bottle had issues. It reminds me very much of Samiclaus - sort of a light version of it. I will definitely try it again.

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.
