I bought one bottle each of the Uerige Sticke and Doppelsticke during some recent travels back to Arkansas. Both of these beers rate something like 92 on Beer Advocate, so I thought they might be worth a shot. Besides, the narrow little flip top bottles are way too cool to pass up.
The aroma was sweet caramel with low hop notes and raisin like malt. The beers seemed flat, not from lack of carbonation but from lack of flavor. Besides a some raisin character like malt flavor and somewhat strong bitterness, nothing really stood out. The flavor finished slightly bitter and sweet. These were old and potentially mistreated samples. It is a long way from Europe to Arkansas.
The moral of the story is drink fresh beer!
