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.

joeneugs (5626) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Bottle. It pours a deep orange color with a small off white head. The aroma is thick with orange, caramel and honey. Light hints of earthy hops. The flavor is the same. Orange, honey and caramel. Very thick and oily on the palate and sweet for the style. A decent amount of earthy bitterness in the finish. Overall, not bad, but a little too sweet and syrupy for me to rate it high.

Luvystypotables (1610) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2016
A sweet malt aroma with a hint of honey, pours a reddish brown color with a thin short lasting well laced head. An interesting taste, sweet malt hops and a hint of something like lemon grass. A full body with a malt finish.

ThirstyBird (2583) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2016
Bottle, pours a medium amber with a hint of haze and a tan cap. The smell is roasted malt, fruit sweetness, and a touch of brown sugar and herbs. The taste is roasted malt, fruity, crisp hops in the middle ending crisp with a lingering sweetness. Light+ in body with average carbonation. I lived in Düsseldorf for 4 years, this is in the ballpark of a Stikebier but unfortunately doesn't hold up to the originals.

ByTheirLimpin (277) - New York, USA - MAR 18, 2016
A favorite everyday drinker. Not sure why I’ve waited. Bottle poured honey amber, crystal clear. Fine bubbled thin head. Palate is a clean clingy board of malts. Sweet finish lingers. Well done.

TATE (402) - Lubec, Maine, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle. Pours a bit copper and a bit cloudy. Slight floral aroma. Big malt up front but a strong boozy flavor that I didn’t enjoy. Some heat at the back end so no hiding the higher ABV. I really like their regular alt and think I’ll stick to that.

polo_marco (313) - milton, Vermont, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Smells of caramel malt orange zest with a slight rotted grape of wine smell. Color is a orange and gold color. Taste as sweet from the mounts bitterness coming through slightly fall by Boozy aftertaste. Medium body smooth Crisp carbonation. Not a bad brew just don’t care for the winey finish or the alcohol burn.

If you’re looking to stick every rating here on at least one beer, this fits the just-above-the-middle-of-the-road rating. It’s got a bitter aftertaste that takes away from the initial taste, but not so bitter that it runs it. It’s...just above average.

dalekliz (908) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with a bubbly white head that fades. Aroma of oak, malt, hops, a hint of sweeter fruit. Taste has a lot of crisp yeasty malt, with an underlying sweetness and wood. Hides the alcohol. Lingering crispness that isn’t very big. Drinkable, not bad.
