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.

I'm drinking this bad boy out of a bottle in a beer glass. The beer is copper colored and I have found that you really have to play with it as you pour in order to get a noticeable head, which is cream colored and retains for about .5 secs. The beer has a faint noticeable smell that is malty maybe with a little fruit. When you taste it there is an initial very malty toffee flavor followed by a smooth hop bitterness and alcohol bite at the end which sometimes persists. This is a beer that stays with you in the back of the mouth, producing continuing flavors after the initial taste. It is very sweet and goes well after dinner. It is tough to drink a lot of these as they are very rich and flavorful.
