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.

Draught at Park Ave fest. Pours deep copper with white head. The maple sugar was evident, as was some fruity notes. Unfortunately my tasting was hampered by the plastic cup it was served in, as well as the low 90’s degree temps outside. I will endeavor to retaste under proper conditions.

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.

hockeybeerguy (909) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JAN 16, 2014
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

4/11/2011. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Sweet caramel aromas with light fruit and a bit of earthy notes. Caramel flavors mostly with little hops on the finish as expected.

beerandbeyond (625) - ISRAEL - DEC 16, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler. Slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. Rich malt aroma, sweet caramel, dark toffee and faint floral notes. Sweet juicy malt, some nuts, caramel, ripe fruit and lo bitterness. Med-full body, some alcohol is present, soft carbonation, a bit heavy but OK.

Clear, copper, thin off white head. Smells of mostly malts, sweet, molasses, dark bread, caramel. It tastes much the same. Slight taste of alcohol, not my favorite style, but pretty good for it, just a ramped up version of Long Trail Ale.

Wat can I say, this shelf brew was generously given 2 me by Loineshawn, one of the finest gentlemen I’ve ever had the privilege to know. Is that rake enough for you shitheads?














































I reckon I can say a little about the beer.
S’pretty much orange with a real small but well retained head that leaves some chitl lace on da glasssss!

Bottle from box aroma offers lots of caramel maltiness. Lots of alcohol offered in the aroma. It’s sweet smelling but not awfully so. It’s neate, not too neate though.

The bottle from box flavor offers spicy alcohol, loads of rich maltiness… and some honey.

Stuff is clean and boosty, 4 sure.
