look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

11oz Bottle received in trade with Phyl21ca - Thanks!

Appearance - Cloudy brown colour with a very small size fizzy beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for 1-2 minutes.

Smell - Malts, dark fruits, leather, anise

Taste & Mouth - There is a low amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, anise, and raisins. There is also some herbal notes and a nuttiness and a smokiness. It ends with a malty sweet herbal/earthy aftertaste.

Overall - An interesting beer.. kind of tastes like a dubbel/barley wine but with some gruit like flavours mixed in. Not something I'd drink a whole lot of, but points for originality.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Stylish bottle as others Ueriges. Brown amber color. Poured less than two fingers of off-white head but immediately left laces.
Bold aroma of toasted malts, piney and herbal hops and caramel.
Very malty but also hoppy. Taste of liquor of toasted malts (if such thing exists), or even rum, wood, prunes, lots of herbs and some spicy notes, earth and minerals. Dry and with a long, long lasting bitter aftertaste.
Full body towards hard liquor with low carbonation and tiny bubbles.
Full of character, at first kick as a mule with its intense flavors. From the Uerige’s versions I believe the Sticke is the most balanced, also flavorful but still with high drinkability to drink. This version is best at winter or for a slow degustation.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance – Pours a cloudy brown color. The carbonation is interesting to watch if you give it a swirl; lots of tiny bubbles momentarily hover in the glass. The head has larger than normal bubbles, and it has a medium lacing.

Smell – Sweet rum, dark bread, hops, raisins, smoke, toffee, and malt.

Taste – Tastes very much like it smells, with a light alcohol bite.

Mouthfeel – Smooth and velvety, very little carbonation, and a light boozy bite.

Drinkability – This is a good beer. and goes down easy.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured into a stange glass. Pours dark copper with a near finger-length off-white head. The beer is mostly opaque, but there is some light visible along the bottom of the glass. The head dissipates, leaving a thin cap of lace atop the beer. The beer smells of dark roasted malt, toffee, plum, and raisin. It's a very rich and inviting aroma. Like their standard alt, the beer has more hop notes than you would expect just from the nose. There's a strong bready malt backbone with some toffee sweetness, plum, and raisin. There's some earthy and woody hop notes in this beer that come through rather well to balance everything out and provides some satisfying back end bitterness. I can't taste the 8.5% ABV because it is masked very well. The body is full with moderate carbonation. The beer goes down smoothly and has a dry finish. This is pleasantly drinkable for such a big beer. This is an excellent beer.

Pours a murky brown color with a lasting tan head. Nice lacing.

Nose is rich, sweet fruity-caramel malt...just smells thick and hearty. Burnt fruitcake is the description I am trying to think of.

Taste is like a raisin rolled in brown sugar, drizzled with dark rum and thrown in a pan on high heat with no oil or butter. Quite decadent and the alcohol feels bigger than 8.5%, surprising considering how rich the beer is. Mouthfeel is great and silky, I would definitely buy this again, even with the fairly steep pricetag.

Poured from a stubby, long neck bottle with a stopper into a LaChouffe flute. Not like any altbier I ever had. More like a Dopplebock, but I'm not getting hung up on style with something that tastes this good. Pours a murky brown color with purplish highlights. Head retention and lacing are not much but the head is very bubbly ad vigorous up front. Overall carbonation is good.

Smell is malty and sweet with some dark fruit. Very pleasant. Taste is very good. Nice and sweet without being annoying or cloying. Rich malty /fruity taste without any heavy alcohol presence.

Mouthfeel is rich and creamy. Very smooth.

This is an outstanding slow sipping beer. Not so strong as to make you comatose. A welcome addition to any cold weather beer drinking.

This beer is incredible. Not quite "perfect", but it has some spectacular dynamic qualities. Highly recommended.

Pouring it rather vigorously out of the bottle into a 0.5L Euro pint, it doesn't produce much head, but it'll maintain a cap and throw up some foam when swirled. It's quite opaque, brown with subtle reddish-purple highlights.

Extremely vibrant roasted (dark crystal) malt and roasted prune aromas hit you immediately. Quite intense. Melanoidin-rich, dense dark bread. I thought I was getting some warm, toasted walnut and definitely some medium-bold hop aromas as well. Kind of blurry altogether though until it warms up a good bit.

First taste impressions are toasted prunes and a gin-like herbal flavor (alcohol, i'm guessing). Predominantly roasty/burnt dark fruit finish. Quite a "full" flavor overall - roasted malt and mellow, slightly perfumy alcohol which carries strong through the finish and that dry prune undercurrent. Surely some assertive hops throughout. Moreish, in total.

Amazing how dry it seems despite the intense, semi-sweet taste. It really drops off, leaving the zippy tingle of roasted dark caramel malt on the roof of your mouth. Starts off med-full bodied (so smooth) while, woven so well into the background, warmth from the alcohol gradually wells up from the gut, building and smoothing ya out.

Wow. This was difficult to score because I've never had quite an ale like this. I paced myself but, by the end, I wish I'd had a much bigger mug of this. Oh boy!

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Flip-topped into a pint glass. Thick, low translucence, a touch of maroon where the light fights the brown, and a thin cream head that dissipated quickly but left some lacing. Noted that the cloudiness was apparent even in the thin ribbon of beer as it was poured.

I found the smell pointedly unappetizing. There was certainly the backbone of a german malted beer, but something lightly astringent, and certainly metallic came through.

The taste was characterized mostly by an overwhelming sweetness. I should admit I am less privy to the style than I am to the American styles; I understand the style does warrant recognizable sweetness. Since this isn't one of the flavor attributes I usually hope for, I didn't love this one, but precision of the flavor was surprising considering the beer's appearance and viscosity.

Mouthfeel was enjoyable; and energetic and active beer.

Overall, one of the neater bottles I've held, and I was happy to go for a few more experience points in a lesser known style, but I didn't love it. This, certainly, could purely be personal preference.

Poured from the sweet bottle into a cervois glass.

A: Very dark amber body with a good amount of sediment. Lots of tan head that clings to the walls and maintains a steady quarter-inch tall after fading.

S: Lots of yeast at first, giving way to raisins and bread as the head fades and the beer warms, then finally some caramel and alcohol.

T: Sticky rum and raisin fruit cake. A little more sour than I was expecting as well. Very little alcohol here, I can smell it easier than I can taste it.

M: For a beer this sticky-sweet, it doesn't at all feel it (that's a good thing!). Drinks very clean off the palate.

Thanks Derek!! Weird and cool little bottle! 09 09

Appearance. Pours a deep, burnt caramel-red with half a finger of off-white head. Looks a little ominous.

Smell. Sweet and sour apples, burnt caramel, nutty, molasses, milk chocolate, even a nice slight floral quality. Crazy. Like a fancy doppelbock!

Taste. Caramel, floral hops, plump dark raisins and prunes. Some bitterness. Maybe a drop of ice-wine...??

Mouthfeel. Medium-full body, lower, smooth carbonation.

Overall. Very interesting stuff here. Can't say I've had anything like it before. (Edit: Just checked, haven't had anything of this style before) Not sure if it's my thing or not, but I'd try it again to see.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance - Chestnut brown. 1-finger tan head after a hard pour. Head retention is lower than expected. Quickly fades to a thin ring. Bottled on date says "10.08." Based on other Uerige bottles I think this means Oct 2008.

Nose - The kind of malt sweetness I love. Big molasses, caramel, a whiff of cinnamon apple pie, candied fruit, and a bit of earthiness. Quite bright, fresh aromas considering the age.

Taste - Initially sweet like the nose. Figs, raisin, apple, and molasses. The finish makes a brulee of the sugars and fades into toast and hop bitterness. (Have to compare with a fresh bottle to make sure this isn't just oxidation)

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body. A touch fizzy.

Drinkability - High. Initial sweetness is well balanced by sharper flavors and bitterness to keep me coming back for more. Wish more breweries made doppelsticke beers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Sam Adams signature glass. Bottleneck label says "bottled on" but nothing's printed underneath.

A- Pours a medium brown color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains decently before retreating to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a light sheet of surface foam. Randomly sized specs of lacing.

S- Lightly toasted malt and, I kid you not, bleu cheese. I've smelled many beers in my time - some spoiled, most not - but I've never had a beer that smelled like straight up bleu cheese! I don't like bleu cheese but, as with other flavors that I don't enjoy in food but enjoy in beer (rye being the only one that comes to mind), this works for me.

T- More toasty, caramel-like malt that's also doughy. Some wet cardboard but it's excusable since the 8.5% abv is barely detected. Such an odd flavor that's as rich as it is tame somehow.

M- Mediumish body that's smooth and has average carbonation.

O- Very unique and quite drinkable for such a strong beer. I'm not in a hurry to have another but respect it for what it is.

4.75/5  rDev +15.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

330ml bottle 8,5% ABV.
Served lightly chilled in an over sized wine glass.
Bottled in: February 2012.

Appearance: Well, if I was rating the bottle, I would just have to award full marks - I absolutely love this shape!
Getting back to the contents of the bottle, the beer seems to be quite thick and oily during the pour. The colour appears to be a dark brown, but is transformed into an ultra deep red when back light. A rough pour yields a large, creamy, off-white head that displays good retention and leaves beautiful patterns of lacing as it recedes.

Smell: Oh man, now this smells absolutely delicious! I am fast realizing that a well brewed altbier can easily stand up to most of the bigger and more popular styles of beer out there. The initial nose is malty and sweet with notes of caramelized brown sugar, toffee, a hint of chocolate, toasted brown bread, dates, stewed plums and a hint of preserved figs. After a few seconds the characteristic earthy hop notes begin to emerge and balance the sweetness. In addition to the earthiness, the hops also display a distinct dried orange peel note.

Taste: I am not sure how, but the flavour is even better than the nose suggested. There is just a perfect balance of malt and hops that results in a wonderfully complex, but still very drinkable beer. Notes include: Sweet caramel, toffee, a touch of chocolate, brown sugar, date, figs, plums, a hint of raisin, a very earthy quality - almost like dry leaves, old wood (not oak) and dried orange peel. The finish is moderately bitter and lightly dry.

Mouthfeel: It makes such a big difference to the overall impression of a beer when the mouthfeel is perfectly matched to the flavour profile and that is certainly the case here. This mouthfeel is absolutely flawless - full bodied and lightly sticky, with a medium level of super smooth carbonation.

Overall: Uerige Doppelsticke is a fantastic altbier, it is easy to see why it is rated at the top of the style! I will certainly be getting many more bottles of this in the future.

i wish there were a BROS score because sometimes there is a large discrepancy between the BA score and "THE BROS" score.... i dont know- this strikes me as the EKU28 or the SAMICLAUS did when i was just a younger man, with lots of fruity, brandy-like tastes and, apparently, a whole lot of alcohol. it's just not my idea of a good time, although i appreciate the fact that someone is brewing this stuff. it definitely is a sipper, as opposed to a 'hungry' brew, and i think back to a THOMAS HARDY i had back then also. that's it!! it's similar to a THOMAS HARDY. gawd, that stuff was a gagger then, and it's a still a gagger now. even if i do feel i have refined my taste buds a bit. i appreciate the taste, but it just isnt someting i'd buy a lot of . . . .

Review from 12/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Dark, dark red amber. Nice light tan head and lots of lacing. Malt, roast malt and fruit aroma. Excellent presentation, both the head and aroma are very nice. Medium to heavy bodied, strong malt, toasted malts and dark fruits up front. Middle and finish with a tannic, bitter malt flavor. I like the complexity of the flavor, but the finish is a bit too astringent for me. Well made, but not quite to my taste.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

appearance; clear, deep reddish brown with noticable sediment. Off white to light brown head, poor retention(my glass was a little wet prior to the pour so that could have a lot to do with it) but a remaining ring of foam leaves some patchy lacing. More than acceptable for a higher alcohol beer.

smell; definite malty sweetness, almost syrupy with some roasted character. Almost completely malty with some hints of wet herbal hops. Candied plumb skins with brown sugar comes to mind.

taste; almost sweet malts upfront, turning to a very dominating burnt malt bitterness. Could also be described as having an acrid sourness with hints of raisin and dark chocolate. The bitterness retains on the palate long after consumption. Only the faintest lemon rind hops are perceived but only when knowing previously of the flavors of the lower alcohol offerings. Alcohol is noticed but not overbearing.

mouthfeel; rather slick and easy but with a bit of alcohol burn, still quite masked and smooth. Finishes very dry to moderately puckering.

overall; this is a tasty treat to be sipped and cherished. Not much of a session drink but beyond worthy to the distinguished palate. The burnt malt is somewhat to excessively strong and seems to take away from other more discrete flavor profiles. Wonderful but I'd prefer the lower alcohol offerings from this brewery, as far as taste and balance is concerned.

Tasted On: 06-13-2012
Freshness: Best by 01-2012
Packaging: 330ml brown bottle, swing-top
Glassware: Stange
Purchased: Single from Liquor Express, Huntsville AL

I didn't realize until I got home that this bottle was marked with a best by date of 01-2012. Bad on the store for stocking the beer past its freshness date and bad on me for not being more attentive. However, I think the beer still tasted fine.

A: Clear beer with a sienna brown color. The head is off-white and a couple of fingers high. Shows both good lacing and head retention.

S: Rich and malty aromas -- ripened fruits, molasses, caramel, raisins and brown sugar. Wonderful smells

T: Taste is also rich and malt-dominated, with dark breads, molasses and caramelized sugars. The sweetness is balanced by a good dose of earthy hop bitterness, a slight sourness, and also some alcohol warmth.

M: Thick and creamy body with a medium amount of carbonation. Finishes both malty and bitter -- overall somewhat dry.

O: A very intriguing balance of flavors in this rich ale. Recommended.

Pop top bottle with the purple label, poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass.

A: Not quite crystal clear, but a slight bit of cloudiness. Wonderful raisin-y brown color. Not too much head, dissipates quickly.

S: Lots of malt and dark fruits.

T: Raisin, raisin, raisin. Maybe I'm a n00b with my tastebuds, but all this guy tastes like is raisin. Sweet dark fruits at the start, and a nice bit of bitterness at the end. Sweetness and a bit of alcohol finish off the sips.

M: Slightly carbonated, but overall I'd say on the chewier end of the spectrum.

O: Incredibly tasty! I would gladly polish of as many of these as I could, but also I would take as much time as I could possibly in doing so. The alcohol content should make most people wary of drinking one of these quickly, but I'm young and it's the weekend! Fantastic brew.

A: Pours a cloudy medium brown in color with significant amounts of sediment floating in suspension. The beer has a half finger tall creamy light beige head that reduces to a patch of thin film covering about half of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate lacing is observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of roasted malts, toffee, and dark fruit (raisin) sweetness. Slight hints of alcohol as it warms up.

T: Very similar in taste to the smell, quite sweet upfront with light bitterness in the finish. There are lots of dark fruit (raisin) sweetness.

M: Medium to full bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth with some light hints of alcohol warming. Really coats the inside of your mouth and tongue.

O: This beer is well balanced between the malt sweetness and the bitterness but the mouthfeel and the higher ABV make this a beer that you could have only a single in a session. This is a sipping beer and is not sessionable.

A - Semi-opaque brown with red highlites. Nice tanish white head which persists.

S - Caramel, dark fruits, malt, sweetness, and alcohol on the back end. Complex with several layers on the nose.

T - Brown sugar sweetness is very apparent. Dark fruits, dates specifically. A touch of roastiness / smokiness in the middle. The end is semi-balanced by some spicy hop bitterness which lingers, but still very much leans on the sweet end. Basic, but complex at the same time.

M - Thick mouth feel with light-medium carbonation. Not astringent, leaves a nice coating in the mouth. Alcohol is apparent, but down played due to the residual sweetness that lingers.

O - A very nice beer! If you are a malt bomb fanatic, this is a nice beer to sip on. Complex, but straightforward. Keep in mind this beer is an "imperial" Alt beer. Very well executed and very enjoyable.

.33L Grolsch style flip top bottle served in a 22oz. snifter.

A - Pours a cloudy and very dark brown, with a pinkish tanned head, spotted lacing left behind.

S - Rich caramel malt, vanilla wood, caramelized brown sugar, dates, sugary brown cake, sweet short bread, cocoa sweet alcohol vapors.

T - Maple syrup right off the top, dense caramel malt, heavy sugary dates, toasty, sweet date bread, caramelized/burnt brown sugar, toasted marshmallow sweetness. Finishes bold with lingering alcohol.

M - Syrupy, silky feel, medium bodied, low carbonation.

WOW! Words cannot describe the aroma of this beer. This is a malt lovers dream come true. Very complex layers that meld wonderfully. Good alcohol presents that fits perfectly in with the rest of the flavors.

Enjoyed this flip-top bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a hazy dark brown hue with mild blonde highlights. Medium tan head that quickly dissipates in to a wispy lace leaving no trail down the glass..

S: Strong sweet malty syrup and molasses aroma with a floral hop background.

T: Very rich ale which has a very sweet caramel backbone. Very smooth and a chocolate bitter alcoholic finish.

M: Very strong and boozy. Heavy body – almost oil-like. Medium carbonation.

O: Excellent Altbier – a little on the sweet side – but lots of complex flavors and aromas. Nice sipping beer at 8.5% abv.

Poured from a 33cL bottle into a brandy snifter. Bottled on 10.06. Code 11.05. I'm a little confused, because the bottle of Uerige Sticke I just drank was stamped "Bottled on 04.10." I assumed month/year, but if that is the case, then that would make this beer five and a half years old. I suppose they could have changed reversed the numbers, which would mean this was bottled May 2010.

A: It pours a dark chocolatey brown, opaque and dense, with scattered lacing and virtually no head.

S: The yeast smells musty, with a touch of sweet malt. Not much depth.

T: So strange that I feel there must be something wrong with it...Perfume. It tastes like perfume, which is pretty nasty, but also has some interesting floral notes. But also an astringent alcoholic chemical maintaste, followed by a touch of hops and a splash of fruit on the endtaste. The undercurrent of what I describe as perfume makes this beer damn near undrinkable, but at least it fades quickly.

M: Hard to focus on, so I'll go with average.

O: I don't want to say terrible, but what could have been really cool is absolutely ruined by whatever the hell is going on. I'll put up another bottle in the future, but as it is, stay far, far away.

Poured into a 0,3L Weihenstephan glass I got at the brewery (closest thing to a stange I have...) from the famous 11.2oz flip-top bottle. Date code is 10.06, (I assume 1 year and 9 months old)

A: Great dark brown body. Really nice dense off white head.

S: I almost choked on the amount of delicious aroma coming from this bottle as soon as I popped it. Booming with deep caramel malt aromas; earthy, hoppy as well.

T: Caramel malt complexity gives way to less sweet malt flavors, which is followed by a slight roastyness. Then a _strong_ bitterness wipes everything away, intertwining with sweet malt flavors for a long lingering finish.

M: No complains, thick with a fairly mild carbonation

O: This certainly deserves the praise it gets, no question.

Appearance: Murky dark brown mahogany with one finger beige head. Head dissipates and leaves a liquor like oily top.

Aroma: Sweet. Roasted caramel malts. Toffee and dark fruits. cookie dough, candy cane. Proportionate bittering hops, spicy and herbal.

Taste: Sweet and warming. The alcohol is very present and the beer finishes nearly medicinal. Warming sugars and bready malts with a mint like presence.

Mouthfeel: Full and sweet. Somewhat sticky and molasses like. Finishes strong and bitter.

Overall: A nice powerful winter warmer. Save for cold weather and drink as an after-dinner beer.
