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.

I’m a bit torn about this review. Part of me wants to dog this beer just so the rest of you will continue to denigrate it based on the cartoon cows on the label and the generic "brown ale" quality that fails to impress the uninitiated. But in fairness to the brewers who have worked long and hard and in secret to make this alchemical miracle, I can’t speak afoul of it. Uerige aside, this American interpretation of the style is phenomenal. The dark horse of any beer tasting, this beer is in contention for best of show at any tasting.

Bottle. Pours clear brown with a creamy white mostly lasting head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of brown sugar and caramel. Mouthfeel of fine bubbles and soft carbo, lightly sweet, medium bitter, light body and a brief bitter and sweet finish.

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.

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.

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.

Had this on draft at the brewery and loved it. When I bought the 12 pack, it was much more hop forward than the draft. This was one my wife liked on draft, but not in the bottle. Tastes better after it sits open. Still has lingering cascade hop flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
