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.

Pours a dark amber from a bottle, not much nose, although served rather cold so maybe just much wasn’t making it out of the glass. Flavor a nice caramel yeastiness, some banana/tropical fruit notes. Good beer.

FROMTHEBOTTLE (38) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2015
650ml bottle. Picked this local beer up while passing through Vermont. Pour yields good lacing, and a beer that has copper/caramel and amber hues. Persistent carbonation keeps thin ring around glass and offers up constant aromas of dried fruit, roasted nuts and melted brown sugar. On the palate, the malt shows through. Subtle sweetness gives way to slight bitterness. Initially a little boozy, but that too is easy to forgive given the 7.2%abv. Overall, a fine effort. Hope to try more from long Trail

Taste is moderately sweet with sugary maltiness and mild fruit and hint of alcohol. Palate is medium bodied with lively carbonation and nice sweet finish.
