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 like me some Altbier. Brownish orange, thin tan head. Spicy, citrusy orange & rose hips aroma. Slightly viscous palate. Notes of orange, vanilla and nice peppery, spicy finish. Nice long aftertaste. Not a hint of excessive alcohol to be found. More, please...

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Bottle. Deep clear garnet with a meringue-like fluffy white head. Aroma and taste are creamy and sweet, malty and fruity. Very drinkable and nice. And besides, it’s pretty.

A most excellant ale. One of my favorites Vermont has to offer, and they have some tasty beers. I’ve been drinking these for years and had no clue that they’re 7.2 til just now.

Out of the bottle this brew pours a very dark transparent red with a medium off-white head. Lots of sweet caramel up front, earthy, with a nice finishing bitterness. Aroma is caramel and hops, mostly citrus hops. Smooth and clean tasting brew with a good malt kick.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - NOV 23, 2004
Bottle. Clear and red, big initial head, but little carbonation. The aroma is musty and sweet. Lots of caramel there. The flavor is interesting ... hoppy ... and sweet. More caramel and some banana too. It really mellows out as it warms. It finishes well, just like it starts, a little bitter and a little sweet. I was surprised by this one, it’s good.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Color, a clear, bright garnet. Head, a fine, off-white 1/2" ring. Aroma: soft, yeasty, malty, and already giving off whiffs of alcohol. Sharp, yet sweet, yielding some minor-key fruity character. Mmmm Complex, and wonderful flavor, yum, yum,-and let me say it again, yum. Big, bold, bursting with malty flvor, showing no hops at all. Medium body, long, tasty finish. Bright, cheery, delicious. Each sip bought a delivery of more and more satisfaction! This was a good one!

thrown a bit by this at first - having come just after sampling a Weihenstephaner and seeing a note about this being a double alt (which I’m not familiar with) - so much more complex and interesting. Somewhat sour at the finish, then smoothly gliding to a very nice bitterness. Well enjoyed.

carmel flavored malty ale, a bit bland for my taste, somewhat heavy with little head, not bad, but i like the ipa better

rudolf (2345) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Creamy head, copper body. Aroma is somewhat lemony/citrus, male & a bit of butterscotch. Very sweet maple, some biscuit with a balanced citrus/maple finish. Too sweet & alcoholic for me.

Deep amber, decent head, little lace. Nice aroma of sweet malts, maple, nuts and more. Medium bodies, smooth sweet, nutty flavors with noticeable hoping to balance. A real nice drinker.
