"Discover this genuine dark Trappist beer with a gentle flavour, creamy head and pronounced bouquet.
La Trappe Dubbel has a deep brown colour and attractive beige froth. The use of caramel malt gives it a gentle aromatic caramelised quality. It has a rich malty flavour with a touch of sweetness. Post-fermenting La Trappe Dubbel is a smooth drink, and yet has some real body and intense flavour to it.

Dark reddish brown colour, hazy, beige nicely lacing creamy head. Dried fruits like figs and raisins, cherries, gingerbread, coffee and chocolate, liquorice, sweet and slightly roasted malty caramel and toffee. Lingering sweet, fruity aftertaste. High carbonation, but still a soft mouthfeel, good body.

shadylane (4) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 9, 2014 does not count
Pours dark brown/red with a large beige head. Pleasant aroma with notes of raisins, spices and maybe some licorice. Strong complex malt flavours of burnt toffee, caramel and some dry fruit. Good hop balance with a nice dry finish. Medium body - High carbonation makes it very quaffable despite the relatively high ABV.

DutchMark (193) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 8, 2014
Nice double. Dark red with an off white head and lively prickly carbonation. It is quite fresh and not as sweet as others I had in the style. It is even a bit light bodied and dry in comparison. Flavor has a nice balance with yeast burned malts and caramel. Very easy to drink. A beer with caracter.

dr.dod (324) - Szeged, HUNGARY - DEC 5, 2014
33cl bottle. It is one iconic beer (or ale). It has huge beige foam with nice taste alone, but beer is much better. Caramel and coffee the first after some sweet malt, and hop at the end. Creamy, silky. There are massive alcohol in the beer, but it’s not disturbing, rather heavy bodied. Price is also heavy.

Colour: copper-brown, with a beige head. Nose: dark (forest) fruits - apricot, plum. Hints of chocolate and raisins. Slight hoppiness. Flavours: chocolate malt returns. licorice, cough drop. Hints of caramel and spices. Finish: long, mellow, warming. Verdict: good Trappist dubbel, but not quite the finest out there.
