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.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2001
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2006 Yes, I understand I probably had that beer on its best day the first time around. Sampled on what was obviously a more ordinary day, it’s a slightly coppery amber colour. The aroma is malty, somewhat brassy with a hint of earthiness. Flavour has a lot of bitterness - woody - and dashes of caramel and breadcrusty malts. The flavours are definitely not as bright as previous and the beer simply feels less alive as a consequence. Alcohol hits late, as does a little brown sugar sweetness. Not a bad beer, certainly respectable amongst the overall alt/amber field, but not a worldbeater either. That was pretty much expected, though, as that first experience was so sublime. Ar 6 Ap 3 F 7 P 3 O 14 = 3.3 Rating shown is aggregate of the two.

Deep amber; rich aroma with loads of malt, almonds, cashews, and hints of maple & bourbon; Huge malt palate - but with pleasing bitterness underneath flavours of plum, pear, rich caramel/toffee and earthy, toasted malts, mesquite smoke, more bourbon. Finishes both sweet and earthy. Very complex. The best alt since Im Fuchschen. Ar 9 Ap 4 Fl 10 P 4 O 18 = 4.5

(Bottle) Pours a clear copper with medium creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, Peeps Easter candy, toasted malt, and honey. Flavor of caramel, nuts, and mild hops.

argo0 (11349) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 21, 2002
Light copper body with minimal head. Aroma is sweet and malty, largely caramel. As it warms, hops and alcohol also show up. Flavorwise, it’s fairly rich, sweet and strong malty. Hoppy on the back half, and there are definitely some barleywine qualities. The alcohol is blatant in its presence. It’s a good beer, but no great shakes.
