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.

By far the CLASS of the Long Trail Lineup! This beer has a rich amber color, and a pretty good head. It smells sweet and malty. The taste is malty, sweet, and there is a hint of hops with a citrus tinge in there somewhere, strangely enough. It's smooth mouthfeel can lead you to keep drinking..Beware! The strong ABV is hidden well in this intense flavour experience. Bravo Long Trail!

Wow! This beer was more than I expected, I think that "Long Trail" put's out decent product, usually a 7 out of 10 across the board, this was better!

I got a nice half inch head, dicipated after a few and left nice lace behind, I smelled the alcohol mostly at first sniff, the taste has a nice bite, buiscuity malt, then an almost intense alchohol bite that finishes with a fruity hop finish. The after taste is pleasent, with a "milky" mouth feel.

I really enjoyed this .

Double Bag was served from a 12 oz. bottle with a label illustrating a healthy pair of bags. In a pint glass, the beer was a beautifully rich red-orange color, and was topped by an ample, fine white head. The nose was rich and enticing, with a lightly roasty oatmeal cookyish maltiness and an excellent citric-vague banana fruity edge as a counter point. The taste was also rich and very well-developed, with a lightly astringent/roasty chewy malt profile that released some oatmeal-raisin cookie-banana and limey citirc flavors in the transition to the tasty, chewy (though still slightly astringent) malty, moderately bittered, light citric-fruity finish. I simply loved the flavors and flow this brew had to offer. To top it off, the body was perfectly bodied (med-full) with just the right amount of lively carbonation. It drank quite well too, even for a stronger beer. Double Bag is a top-notch brew!

Had this a while back; remembered as being good. Mmmm, sorry now it's been so long! Just had to have more!!! Clear copper color, with a thin, fine head; minimal lace. Caramel-notes in a pleasing malty nose. Sweet, toasty malt flavors co-mingle with caramel, leading to a nice little hop twang at the end. Real good body, and a creamy smoothness. Warming as it goes down, and those hops linger on the palate. A real winner from Long Trail. This one goes down verrry easily!!! Surprised there aren't more reviews for this and the rest of their line. I think this makes 100?!! Hot dog!!
