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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a nice dark amber color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to almost nothing

S: Very malty and robust with some nutty notes and a hint of dark fruit

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the robust maltiness with some graininess and goes into dark fruits and an earthy nuttiness. Finishes with a hint of sweetness

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A nicely brewed American alt with bold flavors and good drinkability. Great deal for the price and drinkable any time of the year. Probably one of the staple brews in New England

Serving type: bottle
