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.

On vacation in Vermont, picked up a few six packs of local brews with Double Bag among them. Pours a slightly cloudy amber, head dissipates quickly, no lacing on the glass. A fruity, malty and inviting aroma, tempting one to take a sip. Toasty, caramel, enough bitterness to balance it out resulting in a malty-yet-crisp brew. Tastes lighter than it really is.

Pours nicely - transparent copper w/ a lasting tan head & lovely lacing. The aroma is predominantly malfy & a tad sweet. The taste is quite malfy w/ a bit of a bitter kick in the finish. The body is very light & pleasant on the palate. Overall this is a solid beer!

On draft at Justin’s. Appearance is medium amber. Aroma is rich, malty and notes of alcohol. Tastes quite nice, a rich, soft and not too sweet. Palate was thin. Overall pretty good beer.

solidfunk (5010) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 16, 2015
Not quite on point for style. Lacks the interesting malt crispness and profile. Instead the malt comes off on the sweet side here lots of caramel and sugar. Pours brown with OK head and lacing. Bottle.

growler6 (48) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2015
Appealing dark amber color. Toasted malt with a trace of grape (brandy comes to mind). Just enough sweetness. Alcohol warms but does not burn. Great seasonal brew that compliments smoked nuts(almonds) and cheeses.

Clear copper with tan head. Aroma is dry caramel malt with hints of yeast. Flavor is toffee caramel, medium bittering. Paired nicely with chocolate cake. This is the first Long Trail beer I have ever bought but not the first I have enjoyed thanks to the mayor of long trail.
