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.

Pours a clear light brown with a small tan head that falls to a ring but leaves some decent lacing.

Aroma is too light, caramel notes with some toffee hints hints of fruit. Seems little light but it is to style.

Taste is nice malty caramel notes hints of toffee light fruitiness. Very smooth and sweet malt notes abound finish is light floral hop notes. Finish is pretty clean.

Mouthfeel is smooth about medium carbonation is on the light side.

Overall enjoyable American try of a rare German style. Easy drinking tasty brew with lots of flavors dancing on your tongue. Only thing kind of disappointing is the nose isn't as good as the taste buds say it is.

A: Poured into a pint glass. Pours a dark amber with with an off white head that recedes rather quickly.

S: Smells sweet, with caramel, some fruitiness, and booze.

T: Like the smell, sweet. Caramel, a bit fruity, with earthy, herbal hops coming through in the finish, along with some alcohol. Very tasty.

M: Thick, full body with little carbonation.

O: Very good beer. Could use a bit more carbonation, but other then that, solid.
