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.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: It had a deep copper color with visible carbonation and nice clarity. The head was thin, light tan in color and faded fast leaving spotty bubbles on top of the liquid. A small amount of lace was left on the glass. Smell: The aroma had a sweet malty character with caramel notes and mild hops. Taste/Mouth feel: On the tongue there is a thick sweet malt presence with sweet biscuit and caramel notes. The sweetness is balanced nicely by a strong herbal and leafy hops that seems to take over by the finish. The finish is slow and the flavor seems to stick on the tongue. It has a medium body with a creamy smooth texture and carbonation is active yet very mild. Notes: It is a strong beer with bold flavor. Very well done!

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a clear copper color. The head is a one finger off-white shade, and while it’s relatively creamy looking, it doesn’t have the best retention. S: The malt is typically toffee-forward, but with that faint German touch to it. Namely, stone fruits and just a hint of diacetyl. There’s a hop profile that’s very mellow yet still noticeable. Not bad, not bad at all. T: Loads of toffee start this one off. The flavor even gets faintly nutty at times, with some nice apricot notes right after the swallow. There does seem to be a touch of alcohol flavor (along with a faint burn) on the finish. I have to say that overall, the flavor profile isn’t my cup of tea. M: It’s actually kind of coarse, and even slightly angular in feel. This helps to give it pretty good drinkability in spite of its maltiness. Carbonation is light, which somehow suits this one. O: This isn’t my (double) bag, as the scores reflect. Still, I don’t hate it. Decent to try if you’re looking for something different, but I wouldn’t recommend a full 6 pack.

Bottle. Pours clear dark gold with a 1 finger white head. Aroma is slightly metallic, fruity esters and caramel. Taste adds some toffee and spice with a moderate alcohol punch. Bready malt and fruity notes make appearances as it warms. Medium sticky smooth palate with light carbonation. Pretty nice.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance is a clear yet dark amber/brown colored body with a short slightly creamy looking head, spotty lacing drips down the side of the glass as it goes down. The smell is malty and slightly fruity with some nuts that try to carry over slightly. The taste is a rich and well balanced malty fruitiness. On the palate its about a medium in body, comes across fairly sessionable, no aftertaste with a dry earthy finish, slightly crisp. Overall, this is a good beer for its style and good to me
