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 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.

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
