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.

Poured from a growler into a pint Appearance – The beer pours an amber color with a two finger off white head. The head fades over a moderate level of time to give a decent level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is bready and malty with some notes of caramel and some herbal hop. Taste – The taste begins with a lightly roasted and bready taste. Upfront there is a caramel taste that melds with the bready tastes well. Soon some bitter grapefruit and lemon hop flavors come to the tongue. Shortly after arriving these flavors seem to lose their strength. As the lemon and grapefruit dwindle a bitter herbal flavor comes to the tongue. This herbal flavor intensifies to the end where they combined with a light alcohol flavor to leave a malty and lightly bittered flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel is on the rather average side, but kind of thin for a 7.2 % abv brew. Its carbonation level was moderate and rather appropriate for the style. Overall – It was a decent brew. It had some good malty flavors and a light herbal hop. Worth a try, but nothing that is super exceptional. A decent stronger Alt. style ale.

Bottle from Harvest Market Pours a fairly clear medium amber color with a smallish off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aromas of caramel toffee and brown sugar with just a hint of butterscotch. Earthy bitterness in the aroma keeps this in check. The flavor is sweet rich sugars with some melanoids and a bit of burnt sneaking in there. Earthy bitterness with a touch of burnt butter round us out. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. There is a bit of diacetyl here and that usually turns me off to a beer, but this is one of the rare instances where I think it works within the frame of the rest of the brew.

generallee08 (717) - New York, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: It had a deep copper color with visible carbonation and nice clarity. The head was thin, light tan in color and faded fast leaving spotty bubbles on top of the liquid. A small amount of lace was left on the glass. Smell: The aroma had a sweet malty character with caramel notes and mild hops. Taste/Mouth feel: On the tongue there is a thick sweet malt presence with sweet biscuit and caramel notes. The sweetness is balanced nicely by a strong herbal and leafy hops that seems to take over by the finish. The finish is slow and the flavor seems to stick on the tongue. It has a medium body with a creamy smooth texture and carbonation is active yet very mild. Notes: It is a strong beer with bold flavor. Very well done!
