3.23/5 rDev -15%
Appearance: 12 oz pour into a tulip. Pours a deep, dark brown with very little whitish head which fades relatively quickly.
Smell: Very sweet, perhaps surprisingly so. I get hints of molasses, dark fruit, and some hints of alcohol, similar to a port wine. Not the most appealing scent for this type of brew.
Taste: Sweetness comes through with brown sugar, raisins, and an abundance of caramel malt. There is some alcohol in the aftertaste for sure.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with medium carbonation and a bit of stickiness to it. A decent sipper and the 9.2% is certainly noticeable.
Overall: Eh, this was just okay to me and certainly not something I'll rush out to try again. I haven't had too many altbiers, but I certainly prefer the Double Bag to the Triple Bag.

This Long Trail "altbier" does not deliver on the palate.
I'll skip most of the descriptives and get down to the basics. This ale just does not deliver the taste of many altbiers you can purchase today. It has a great mouthfeel, a pleasant appearance but has a bite to it that is not attractive in combination with its malt backing.
Perhaps it would be a good "food" beer. Maybe some sweet sausages or braunschweiger would balance out the edges of this ale.

2.75/5 rDev -27.6%
Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a pint glass.
Pours dark brown, very little foam. Nutty. Candi sugar nose. Sweet. Syrup too. Strong astringent taste, puckering. Really boozy. Woody. Harsh aftertaste. Thick mouthfeel. Hearty.
Yuck. Frankly, quite hard to drink. And high ABV kicks you around for your trouble. Not my thing.
