The beer pours a dark candied brown, with nice hints of amber in it. The beer’s body is clean but cloudy with a haze, and the beer’s head is very lightly tan in color. The beer’s lacing is thin and slick, leaving slippery lines of foam on my glass. On the nose, this beer is big and pungent from the moment the cap is popped. Beautiful rich malts leap from the bottle, the glass, and whatever other container you might have this beer in. When you stick your nose in the glass you get sweet notes of brown sugar, raisin, prune, slight maple syrup notes, and a surprising amount of creamy and also unripe banana. On the tongue, this beer is creamy sweet, bringing raisins, banana, brown sugar, caramel, and slight toasted malts on to the tongue. The beer begins with sweet brown sugar and a touch of maple syrup before opening into raisins, then prunes, then a touch of dates and lovely toasted caramel malts before the beer hits the finish of banana, raisins, and brown sugar. The aftertaste is beautifully long lasting, giving hints of both ripe and unripe banana and brown sugar. On the mouth, the beer feels slightly below heavy but chewy in body and creamy smooth on the tongue. The mouth is left dry on the sides but swimming in saliva on the middles of the tongue. Overall this beer is fantastic, sweet, and complex. I love how this beer is specially made from the first runnings of the mash as that adds a certain amount of fanciness to it. I also love how it smells and how it feels on the tongue, and especially how it tastes. This is a beautiful sipping beer that is ripe with flavors and doesn’t quite touch on the common flavor profiles of other big beers. This beer is a winner. Try it.

This bottle definitely has at least a year on it.
A-Pours a slightly murky brown color. This mass of bubbles for a head. Body has some particulate swirling and sinking within it.
S-Sweet and richly malty. Caramel, toffee and brown sugar. Some dark fruit. Zero hop presence. Some alcohol.
T-Even with some age on it, this beer is too hot. It's rather high in alcohol but the booze is not well integrated. All the stuff in the nose is here, without much else to add.
M-A bit syrupy. Hot. Not cloying but it's within reach. Warms the cheeks for sure.
O/D-Nigger is not better. Double Bag was one of my first intros to craft. I still enjoy it somewhat. This one doesn't have the same magic as it's little brother.
