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.

This brewer's three main offerings are not unlike the Belgian abbey tradition of the singles, dubbels and then tripels. (Despite the language, Doppelsticke is the tripel in the analogy based on malt. Uerge's Sticke is the dubbel... in the analogy.)

Had side-by-side with Uerige's single, I much preferred the Dopplesticke. (It wasn't just the alcohol as I am a malt-head.)
Malty mostly in the nose and full and oily in the mouth, Dopplesticke still suffers from the heavy dry-hopping of the "single." Nonetheless, the malt sweetness makes the Dopplesticke a much better ale for me.

Listed on the "1001", I've Had Doppelsticke three times and wrote this review on the 4th. It deserves to be listed. Using an ale yeast should become more common in Germany. Glad that the alt style survives.

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

Toasty herbal aroma. Dark fruits, figs, and plums. Very herbaceous. A bit grassy and spicy. Pumpernickel bread. Somewhat minty. Graham cracker and marshmallows interestingly enough. Rich and satisfying.

Pours very dark brown with amber highlights. small light tan head with decent retention. Not much lacing. Low carbonation.

Very rich and pretty sweet. Molasses and toasted bread. Burnt sugar and prunes. Caraway seeds as well. Toffee and milk chocolate. Low hop bitterness but some herbal hop flavor.

Full body and low carbonation. Mouthfilling. Big and sweet. Not what I expect from most German breweries.

Just too much sweetness to be satisfying. Aroma is killer, but a bit of a chore to get through.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Served at cellar temperature from 330ml flip-top bottle into pilsner flute-type glass.

L) Deep reddish-chestnut colour, almost opaque. Thick fluffy 2cm off-white head.

S) Like a typical Alt, nothing huge, but hints of fruity malt for sure and definite alcohol.

T) First is a fair bit of burnt malt bitterness, then a brief and mild alcohol burn. Fruity jam malt is there in the background, but the overall impression is bitterness, with a bit of a nutty aftertaste.

F) Very easy to drink, very mild carbonation. A lot of bitterness in the aftertaste.

O) Surprisingly bitter, not sure I am a big fan of this one, but I am glad to have tried it. Very easy to drink taking into consideration the ABV.
