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.

A: Poured from a bottle to a kolsch glass. Had a bright copper color and a clear consistency. There was an inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: Smelled predominantly of malt and caramel. Not overly aromatic, but nice nonetheless.

T: Tasted of malt, caramel, and an almost bready quality. This is a solid, well-constructed beer. Basically, it tastes like an altbier should.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a focused, well made, likeable beer.

Poured into a tall pint glass, color is copper to light amber with light tan head, light clinging on glass.

Smell is lightly fruity and malty, hints of toast and biscuit maybe some raisans, very inviting.

Taste is on the sweeter side, solid caramel, toast, fruity mix of flavors but nothing over done.

Mouthfeel is fuller bodied with some lingering sweetness and light carbonation, nice lingering flavors.

Overall, very nicely done beer, a little sneaky with this abv but the flavors work very well from the bottle.
