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.

Has a darkish amber/orange color with some carbonation and a malt/alcohol smell. Taste is malted with some alcohol flavor and finishes with some fruity/hop/malt flavors. Overall a nice beer, not my favor altbier, but good.

Bottle. Brown with ruby overtones, clear, average white head that stayed with the glass. Aroma smells like the bottle looks: cow, grass, farm, and yeah malt and hops, but that's a good thing to me, because I like that Vermont air. Tough beer to describe on flavor: malt is to the max, well balanced with hops; after that, vanilla, cherries, other fruityness, back to malt, and hint of red wine. Fantastic. There's alcohol in this? Yeah, plenty, but you can't taste it. Soft, subtle, complex, yet such big maltiness. Easy to drink in the way that's it's just a great beer. Seriously underrated in my opinion. The bottle was gone before I had a chance to tell it just how I felt. Ok, enough drunken sentimentality, just a great beer, and I'm glad that this stuff is back in Mass.

aroma a bit like hard cider. The high EtOH content is well disguised behind a decently complex malt presence plus enough hops to balance. These would go down pretty easily come the fall.

Beautiful amber color with a nice hoppy aroma. Sweet malt flavor with a touch of bitterness and a touch of alcohol. Smooth malt finish. Very tasty.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2005 This had been sitting in the fridge for three months when I had it, so my assessment may not be accurate. The malt flavor was nothing special to me, with no hint of hops. The 7.2% was very evident in the finish.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2003
Sweet malt aroma, deep amber, with a fine toffee head. Full malt taste, nutty, with a woody aftertaste. Well balanced with just the right amount of bitterness. A very good example!

Rich amber w/ lovely finger of tan foam. Fresh, malty nose w/ nuts and perhaps some maple. Medium feel. Nice maltiness w/ some smoke & whiskey. Nice earthy finish w/ just enough bitterness.

Reddish copper, nice beige head. Banana, hops and toffee aroma with a hint of vanilla. A very nice balance between a big caramely malt and some resinous hop bitterness. This beer has a smooth mouthfeel and a full palate. This is my beer revelation of the year. It is so full and smooth. Thank you so much to Muzzlehatch.
