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.

Bottled 17Sep07. Poured into a standard pint glass. Very clear, pale colored with no head. Smells of straw, bananas, and sweet toasted malt. Light in the mouth with some hops at the tail end. Seems German in style but reminds me of Foster's Special Bitter (that is not a good thing). I was a bit dissapointed from the label, I was really hoping for a double milk stout. Neh. I could easily live without this beer.
