View Detail
Doppelsticke (literally "double sticke") is to Sticke and to Altbier what Doppelbock is to Bockbier and to Dunkel.

At approximately 8.5% alcohol by volume, Doppelsticke is a super-strong ("double") Alt-style ale. It surpasses in strength even the approximetely 7% alcohol by volume Doppelbock, Bavaria's a "double" strong lager. Doppelsticke is the creation of the Düsseldorf Altbier brewpub Uerige. It is imported in small quantities to the United States

Uerige DoppelSticke might just be "Germany's interpretation of a barley-wine", ie a third definition next to England's "malt-driven" idea such as JW Lees Vintage Harvest Ale and America's "hop-heavy" version such as Sierra Nevada's BigFoot. Big, rich and sweet.
