"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.

Quality Dutch Trappist dubbel. Chestnut with a slight haze and a tall souffle-like beige head. Good head retention. Smells like a musty wine cellar - jammy merlot, cobwebs, standing water (do cobwebs smell? Ah, what the hell.), plus faint molasses. There’s a spicy gingery note, too. I liked that aroma a lot. Come to think of it, it reminds me of the McLaren Vale shiraz from Saturday night. Medium bodied and very rounded. Soft carbonation - lovely. This is much more subtle than the bockbier. There’s some licorice root bite to the finish, but otherwise it’s a very smooth customer dominated by molasses and dried fruit. Quite peppery in the swallow with some burnt wood in the finishing mix. (30cl bottle, IBS Perth, bb Nov 2007)

TrevorFloyd (309) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 14, 2006
Deep in color and flavor, with a body on the light to medium side. Tastes of brown sugar or molasses, with maybe a hint of cherry or some other fruit lurking beneath. Tasty in a subtle way, highly enjoyable.

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - MAR 10, 2006
Much foamy and bulky head, medium persistence. Much dark brown and impenetrable color. Elegant and darkest. Muh rich scent, extremely alcoholic with notes of parched malt, liqueur and wine cellar. Much stinging and lively taste; much perfumed and in the nose. Notes of cloves, licorice, alcohol and must. Long and persistent end.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2006
Pours a deep reddish brown color with a nice and fluffy tan head. Aroma is strongly molasses with some banana poking through. Sweet malty flavor with hints of caramel, apple, and banana. Little too syrupy tasting to for my taste. Thick beer with a lively palate. Not bad.

mabjork (669) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2006
Draught@Vanha posti in Tampere. Black in colour. Rich creamy beige head. The aroma consists of sweetly burnt malt with caramel. It has a sweet flavour of burnt malt and a sweet & sour aftertaste.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 23, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2006 Aroma is fairly sharp and features dark candied fruits, sweet breads and mild spicey notes. Opaque red/brown body holds a two finger thick, creamy tan head. Fore is candy sugar, yeast, spice, sweet bread, bannanas, apple, crusty churros and apple fritter crust. Quite damn flavorful with a very silky/creamy mouthfeel.

alobar (2763) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Think this was a bad bottle. Would like to try again and re-rate at some time. Pours dark almost black with no head. Aroma was apples and other fruits with some spicey aftertaste. No carbonation at all.

Pours a murky amber colour with a big white head. Very littel hops taste, but instead a fruity, spice taste that has a fullness

Agreed with Shag on the banana nut bread feel. I found the aroma pleasant enough. Got a few cloves and yeasty flavors out of it, some banana, and something a little darker... darker fruits maybe... something intangible perhaps. Either way, excellent.
