Since 2005, the Uerige has been brewing a special strong beer for the American market. Our Doppel Sticke has an astonishing 8.5% alcohol, but still tastes unmistakable: dat is dat delicious dröppke! After the gigantic herbal hop aroma that surprises the palate at the beginning, follows a midst full of flavorful sensations: caramelized sugar, malt, herbs; rich hints of dark chocolate and rum, before ending gently and shimmering afterwards. The minimum freshness date we also specify for this beer with eight weeks is considered a non-binding suggestion for real aficinados: they swear to store their double stick in the cellar for one year.

    330 ml swingtop bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 8.5%. Dark and hazy reddish brown colour, small off-white head, nice lacing. Aroma of malts, caramel, oak, dark dried fruits. Medium sweet flavour with the same elements, but also distinct bittering hops.

    2006 bottle (consumed in 2009) that poured murky brown with copper hues and off white head. The aroma is sweet and rich with ample amounts of chewy dark fruity esters, caramel and rich malts. The taste is much the same and seems silky smooth bringing in flavor notes on a dark velvet carpet. I get rich smooth dark fruitiness, some creamy sweet caramel and a background of faint yet sweet malts. Very nice. I would mistake this for an English style barleywine in a blind tasting. YUM. In fact I need to get more of this.

    A very dark brown pour, reminiscent of a good English Brown. Head is thin, creamy, and tan in color. The nose detects sweet aromas like molasses and bread, while there are less dominant notes such as yeast, alcohol, and noble hops. Mouthfeel is average. Starts out very sweet with notes of toffee and caramel, and finishes with a nice bitter hop bite.

    Another Wish List beer, another find at Belmont Party Supply in Dayton, OH. True copper pour with a short tight off-white head, ample lacing. Little carbonation. Big caramel malt bomb, boozy and then a nice earthy hops offset, both in the nose and the flavor, nuts, toffee, more booze, nice alcohol bite and earthy hops bitter with a sweet caramelly finish and linger, almost like a weak brandy. Very well-crafted beer in a unique bottle.

    Looks like a tater masher grendade and will put you away. Alt Bier as I imagine it. Way pricey for me humble budget, still malty, hardly sucks at all no one else brwing this style. A trip bac k to the "good ole days" ??!! I bet its off the hook in Duseldorf, here? Beats any alt in this country or any other. My favorite Alt bier...not favorite bier hence the 10

    Almost get run soaked raisins in the aroma. So dense. Figgy molasses, bready brown sugar, full flavored and full bodied. The flavor shows a bit more alcohol than the sublime nose, but this is still likely the best and biggest alt ie ever had.

    Sampled on 9/24/2011. This altbier pours a slightly hazy medium dark amber brown color from a swing top 33cl bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with decent lacing. The aroma is caramel, brown sugar, molasses and sweet. A medium to full bodied albier. The malts are caramel, brown sugar, molasses and sweet. The hops are citrusy and herbal. Decent carbonation. Tastes more like a barleywine than an altbier. Nice malt sweetness balanced nicely by the hops. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    Cool bottle - one for the collection. Pours a murky reddish-brown with a finger and a half head that quickly disappears. Malty notes in the nose with flavors of raisen, malt and caramel. A hint of the alcohol warms the pallette and back of the throat at the finish. Very nice on a cool late fall evening.

    Like a cross between an english barleywine (Nils Oscar comes to mind as I tried it recently) and a doppelbock (think Korbinian), very sweet, doughy, malt but with a ton of fruity tang and a mildly sticky feel. The flavor is mostly sweet doughy malt. It has a vinous and near-brandy quality. It’s not as rich as a straight malt bomb. There is a much more delicate quality, particularly in a fruity yeast, ripe plums and bananas, and mineral to earthy hops. I guess there are probably sweet notes of caramel and chocolate lurking, but the sweetness comes through more in a barleywine flavor than most highly malty styles. The beer is a bit sticky sweet. Don’t get me wrong. I certainly wouldn’t recommend this as a session beer. In fact, it may be getting more difficult to drink as I go through the bottle. It’s a lot of sweetness. That said, I would very much enjoy having a case of these to open whenever I was in the mood.
