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.

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.

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

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.

SpringsLicker (3266) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Thanks to Willblake for this one!! Deep amber color that produced a fair head which quickly receded. The aroma is light malt. This starts off with a touch of malty sweetness which ends with a hop dryness that comes off rather well. Not bitter, just dry. A dangerously drinkable beer that hides all the alcohol.

Deep chestnut color, beige head, crystal clear. Very nice malt aroma, sweet, full, with notes of honey and caramel. Flavor starts out the same, quite nice, but you get a surge of unexpected hops and some grainier malt. Almost unpleasant. Palate is medium bodied, not much alcohol, dry finish from the hop onslaught. Started out great, faded into something else that wasn’t.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2009 Smells great, complex, hard to identify. Nice color, but little head. Hops cover up the ABV pretty well. Definitely a rebuy, if i can ever find it again. My parents brought me some from their anniversary trip to Maine.

I bought a sixer of this while in Maine and it didn’t disappoint. Flavor consists of caramel & coffee. Could not taste much alcohol despite high ABV. For $7 a sixer this is a great buy.
