Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

This beer is good.
Little low on carbonation.
Nice alcoholic profile with a tinge of bitterness.
However the multiness is what shines in this fine alt.

Very good beer

I had one good one, once. It was a 16 oz can and was really tasty. But I've had it again, more times than I could reasonably remember, and all have been awful. Skunky and funky and no bueno. Many bottles, many pints. All terrible except for one. It's almost mythical and actually I keep trying this beer like a sucker, hoping for another good one.
