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.

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.

Malta aroma. Brown in color. Low bitterness value at 33 ibus. Penetrating malt flavor lingers on the tongue. High abv is subtle in the taste. Not a highly prevalent beer style so don't really know how it stacks up.

Very good but a little malty for my taste and it strangely seems to lack carbonation...
