"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.

sinkas (291) - Perth/Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2007
Bottle, 7%, Pasteurised/Filtered Deep brown with ruby highlights, veracious carbonation and tan head. Aromas of thick sweet dark malts, with some dark stewed or dried plum and stewed rhubarb? Falvours are intense sweet light malts, with a hint of roastiness/hop bitterness midpalate. Pretty damn good really.

Dark ruby red body, with a thin layer of creamy tan foam. The foam lasts the entire beer even though it gets little thinner. Aroma is mostly of fruity, plum not much more but nice. Flavor of fruit plum and som woody notes.Not really an hopprecens but nice anyway Palate is very warming and thin but creamy.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 31, 2007
Pours an amber-brown with a small ring of foam and minimal lace. Very metallic aroma, sweet with no detectable hops. Tastes very watery and sweet, with a hint of light cherry soda pop. Some sweet teryaki, definitely munich malt in there, and a warm fruity finish. Very thin body with low carbonation (tiny fizziness). This is weak, watery, and not at all like the Quadroupel that I enjoyed from La Trappe. Disappointing!

Fukito (921) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - JUL 22, 2007
Bottle - July 2007. Ripe fruit, pruney, ripe bananas on the nose. Fruity, warm and inviting aroma. Hazy caramel color with a rather thin creamy tan head. Malty, toffee flavor, sweet but not cloying, rummy with a fruity ending. Medium full MF with some chewy malts. Aftertaste a bit short. Nice, malty dubbel but a bit too unidimentional.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 22, 2007
Bottle. Pours hazy dark caramel, thin off white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is port, plums, raspberries, grass. Very sweet aroma with hints of acetone. Flavor is dried fruit, wheat. On the watery side, weak body. Disappointing.

Floback (541) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 20, 2007
Courtesy of Kurtis Sea. Big tan head that sustains. Decent lace. Aromas provide a roasty chestnut and hint of caramel. Tastes are similar with a hint of cola and sour grape. High carbonation and full body. Good.

bhensonb (12596) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2007
33 cL bottle. Wonderful aroma of dark fruits. Something of raisin bread. Opaque, dark color with a tan head. Thin to medium bodied. Sort of a dark bread taste, with some stewed dark fruit; not prune though. It coats the mouth with dark flavors, but it is not burnt or sweet. Suggests an overaged cask of Bombardier - tending towards earth. Arguably some yeast along with the dark bread. The finish is relatively dry, suggests dark flavors, and it is simply wonderful. I donít have an adequate vocabulary to describe the complexity. Iíd like to suggest fruit cake, but thatís just too light and too bready. This is itís own wonderful thing.
