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.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 4, 2004
Dark amber color,small off white head that had a good hangtime then faded to a small lace.Malty bannana aroma with a bit of hops and maybe a little spice but it’s hard to say on that one.malty caramel upfront with a nice bannana flavor coming on in the middle.Nicely sweet with a light hop presence at the end and a mild alcohol presence that is hard to find but shows itself from time to time.Much easier drinking brew then i was thinking it might be,by looking at the ABV.Thanks go to Oldgrowth for sending this brew my way.

Small tan head, fair retention and lace. Clear amber/brown color.Malty sweet nose with a touch of licorice and breadyness. Medium body, medium sweet malt flavors, mildly sour, nutty with the alc just showing up in the finish. Finish is medium dry, somewhat astingent.

Jayb0 (1156) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2007 A nice alt, very malty, creamy but with the destinctive alt bite, despite the higher than average ABV. Color is right on, dark red. Head dissipates a bit too quickly. Given the ABV this beer is also usually a very good value.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - APR 25, 2004

Bottle: Good nose, Fruity apples & orange. toffee. Dark orange color. Small head. Sweet & sour flavors, Toffee, carmel, maple with a medium hop presence. Kinda green hop thing. Thin, but kinda sticky. Leaves nice malty flavor on tounge. Man this has a familiar taste. Tasty brew. Maybe its the yeast.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2004
Sweet malty aroma. Very clear amber colour with shy white head that diminishes fully. Sweet malt flavour with a nicely balanced bitterness and alcohol noticeable in the long dry finish. Medium light body. Tasty and potent without being overwhelming. Bottle.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2004
Bottle marked 5/03 on the UPC (almost a year old) pours amber with a small fizzly white head that disappears within seconds.   Zero carbonation, minor lacing.   Heavy malts, caramel, and toffee on the aroma.   Rather sweet maltiness on the flavor.   Light caramel & hops on the finish.   Slightly noticable alcohol in the aftertaste.   Medium bodied, average mouthfeel.   Overall, tiz decent.   Thanks goes out to Eyedrinkale for the trade!

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2004
UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 Not as impressive to me as it seems to be for others, but this is pretty good. Pours a clear red-brown with a thin barely-off-white head that mostly disappears; a little lacing. Smells sweet and malty. Has some hop bite at the end but nothing tremendous. Alcohol is noticeable, and this stuff is slightly warm going down.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2004
Hazy amber body, beige head, almost yellowish. Aroma is well structured, very malty (maple, nutty) accompanied by subtle grassy hops and a mysterious woodiness that I couldn't describe better than cedar powder. Very crisp mouthfeel, highly carbonated medium body. Honeyish malt, grassy/earthy finish with a nice mild bitter touch. Solid

tidiaguy (168) - Hawley, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Light copper body, small fizzy white head. Sweet malt aroma. Strong toffee and caramel scent. Real good balance with a bit of hop bitter on the finish. Toasted malt and caramel flavors with a bit of a buttery diacetal note. You can slightly feel and taste the alcohol on the finish. Nice after taste.
