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.

I'm not that familiar with the style, but damn this is a tasty beer. Great malt backbone without being too sweet and a nice mild hop character. Very drinkable at 7.2%.

I had had it years before and didn't care for it, this one was given to me from the rep, the other may have been old. The malt character jumped right out and there was no hint of the strength. Very tasty, malt sweetness without being too much. It was easy to drink and enjoy. I would like to try more of this style for comparison.
