74. Long Trail Double Bag

This is an interesting ale – pours a great amber color with a nice head and lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet with some caramel/toffee in there. Beer is very smooth for a strong ale but still has a bit of bite at the end. Like most other strong ales this should not be served ice cold. This is different than most ales and something you should try. Looking forward to trying more from Long Trail in the near future.

Brewers Description: This malty, full-bodies double alt is also known as “Stickebier” – German slang for “secret brew”. 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 very 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.
