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.

DYCSoccer17 (3481) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 11, 2003
Pours an amber/copper color with a 1.5cm increasing fine off-white head. Aroma is very hoppy with a hint of some sweetness in there-maybe some cascade hops? Middle and finish are very very hoppy. Start is somewhat mild and a little sugary. The hops later in this are intense, though. Hides the ethanol quite well. Palate is decent. Not too bad at all.

Ernest (6698) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (nuts, caramel, grain), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with light notes of honey and toffee. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. Doesn't all come together that well, and the finish is somewhat grainy and metallic, but it definitely shows potential.

jgb9348 (5067) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2003
Copper colour with a fantastic off-white coloured head. Fragrant aroma, figs and pit fruits really come out, and if you were blindfolded, you could easily say this is a barley wine by the nose. The malt is definately more powerful than the hops, but thats fine given the style. Medium-bodied; Silky smooth mouthful; Strong flavours, malt predominant and some of the sweetness and spiceyness comes out towards the end. Aftertaste bittered from the hops and actually semi-spiced from the kick in the flavours. Overll, a good beer...by far the best from the brewery that i've had. Definately worth picking up if you can find it. I got this twelve ounce bottle from an in-person trade with jah_noth...thanks again Dan!

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2003
On tap at the brewery. Have had this brew many times...in the bottle and on tap at beer bars...but the ONLY place that I found that it was a wonderful brew was on tap at the brewery! Fruity/malty aroma with a touch of alcohol. Big malt balanced with an appropriate dose of hops. Nice color and very clear. Well made beer. If you have never been to the Long Trail Brewery, I highly recommend the trip.

I would drink this beer regularly if available to me here in Seattle. Super sticky caramel aroma with accents by toast and hints of dehydrated banana and bubblegum. It reminds me of fresh doughnuts. There is a light resin hop aroma mixed in with all the malts. Starts slightly sweet with a light bitter mostly dry finish. Good brew.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2011 Re-rate 2011: A light colored amber with good carbonation. Sweet malty aromas. Flavor is smooth and malty. Not too sweet. Slight hoppiness. Long roasty-malty finish. Very tasty.

desurfer (1246) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Red/mahogany body, small tan head. Aroma of caramel. Nice flavor of malt with a bite of alcohol. Caramel, maple, and hops as well. Good, drinkable beer.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2003
This one really upped the flavor intensity from their regular alt - bigger in the caramel and bready malts and especially in the warm, burning sensation of the hops. Enjoyable and it didn't seem to be 7.2%.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 7, 2003
Clear copper with a thick pillowy white head. Malty aroma speckled with old hops. Body is lightly syrupy with some caramel malt and a refreshing bitterness. Dry, lightly sticky finish. A creative idea for a double altbier and it hides its alcohol well.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 4, 2003
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.
