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.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 15, 2013
Aroma of dark berry and toasted malt, and also features perceptible alcohol. Intense copper color. Taste of dry fruits and nuts and sweet booze. Very smooth, but pulls no punches with its strength. One of the first strong craft beers I had back in school, when doppel sticke had yet to enter my vocabulary. Today it has been passed by in most dimensions, but I will always remember it.

Bottle. Murky brown. Sweet malt, caramel, rye, bread crust and toast. Low carb, medium richness. A touch of bitterness. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radarsock (974) - Vermont, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Purchased from Cigarette City earlier today. $7.99 for the 6pack. To oversized snifter, it pours an effervescent skin-tinted light maroon with which an eggshell white ringed head 1 finger in length stood. Aromas of Vienna malt/nuttiness/cashew butter, banana peppers, dried seaweed, German noble hops, Bavaria (lager) yeast, lime meat, basil, DME, and earl grey tea. Tastes the same with the addition of biscuit malt, avocados, salted butter, and wet cardboard. Sweat, plastic, and sourdough cultures experienced by swallow. Likeable modern take on a very elusive German style.

bellco33 (370) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - OCT 16, 2014
This has long been one of my favorites and time hasn’t changed that. On tap at the brewery. Pours dark amber with a thin white head. Aroma of dark fruits, malt, and a little pine. Taste is more of the same, slightly sweet dark fruits balanced with the pine hops on the back end. Medium body, smooth finish, great beer and probably their best (except for Limbo of course :) )

Metalchopz (2372) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
Enjoyed in Vermont. Pours a caramel colour with a light beige head and very nice sticky lacing. Dark fruit aromas. Floral perfume taste with fruity malts. Altbier malts eventually comes out in the finish. Quite smooth mouthfeel and a nice brew overall.

Atom (1410) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2014
12oz bottle pours a murky amber/brown with no head. Aroma is slightly floral with a dry caramel malt. Taste of upfront sweet caramel and toffee floral hops and then the flavor just drops off into nothing. Not bad.

Dacrza (533) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2014
DATE REVIEWED: August 23, 2014... GLASSWARE: Hobgobin stange... OCCASION: Lord of the Rings return to school prep... APPEARANCE: stately brown/orange body; strong, two-finger off-white head; spongy at first, sinewy as it clings to the glass; handsome... AROMA: surprisingly fragrant bouquet from an alt; blanketing caramel malts; some wet leaf and earthy tones... PALATE: heavy, full-bodied and long in its aftertaste; soft hops play at the teeth; palpable yet palatable ... TASTE: vibrant toffee and toast make this a brown with bite; the earthy malts make a course, somewhat complex sip; hops are floral and complimentary ... OVERALL: a Long Trail brew to get behind--a malty ale that brings the weight of 7.2 % ABV subtly; powerful and energizing...
