Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 03-08-1999

This malty, full-bodied double alt is also known as “Stickebier” – German slang for “secret brew”. Long Trail Double Bag was originally offered only in our brewery taproom as a special treat to our visitors. With an alcohol content of 7.2%, please indulge in moderation. The Long Trail Brewing Company is proud to have Double Bag named Malt Advocate’s “Beer of the Year” in 2001. Malt Advocate is a national magazine devoted to “expanding the boundaries of fine drinks”. Their panel of judges likes to keep things simple, and therefore of thousands of eligible competitors they award only two categories: “Imported” and “Domestic”. It is a great honor to receive this recognition.

One of my go-to's, Long Trail is consistently good. I like that it is 7.2%, so you can catch a decent buzz of of 1 or 2, however you can't taste it. Relatively bitter, but something that could get you through your family picnick in a pinch. I reccomend it to all of my beer loving friends.

Nice taste, light for the alcohol content. Finish is good, with a pleasant aftertaste

A "Double Alt" this is like making an imperial Berliner Weisse. It should never be done. However, it's quite tasty when it's cool outside!

If you're looking to stick every rating here on at least one beer, this fits the just-above-the-middle-of-the-road rating. It's got a bitter aftertaste that takes away from the initial taste, but not so bitter that it runs it. It's...just above average.
