"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.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2008
A little hazy ruby/brown colored beer, with a small beige head. The aroma of yeast and malts with some dark fruits. The taste of sweet caramel, with cherry fruits. A smooth and little thin beer. It’s not a bad beer at all.

TOSG55 (223) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Bottle, as Koningshoeven Dubbel. Pours a reddish brown, with a thin tan head. Faint aroma of sweet fruit. Flavor is brown sugar, toffee, dark fruits, and a bit of yeasty tanginess. Delicious. A phenomenal Abbey Dubbel; I find its lukewarm rating to be quite puzzling.

JustinBathurst (134) - Corner Brook, Newfoundland, CANADA - AUG 13, 2008
Poured dark ruby with 2.5 cm dark tan head. Aroma is "holy banana smell" with an addition of water pipes. Which worked for me, to tell the truth. The mouthfeel is slick with lower than average carbonation. The taste is banana, toffee, cookie dough, with a touch of high alcohol warming. The aftertaste is strong with unsweetened cocoa and grapefruit. Awesome.

beervis (243) - Taylor’s Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2008
Pours fizzy with small, quickly dissipating tan head. Deep brown colour, aroma fruity, spicy and slightly woody. Flavour rich and sweet, some spiciness, very smooth. Palate slightly sticky, alcohol evident. Some bitterness on the finish. Nice dubbel.

Borresteijn (6359) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2008
Bottle @ home. Pours deep brownred, with a thin off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, some alcohol. Taste is soft and subtle, with roasted malts, brown sugar and some raisin. Sweetness is balanced by a nice slightly bitter finish. Good dubbel.

swanmann (734) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 29, 2008
The bottle pours deeeep cinnamon color with soft medium sized tan head that settles quickly. There is a sweet aroma of brown sugars, subtle roastyness, and syrupy fruits. Soft carbonation with sweet flavor and slight bitter bite. Just a little bit spicy. The finish is smooth with sugary retention. Good brew

Drink4Satan (676) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 29, 2008
Pours a brilliantly clear, deep crimson colour with a rocky tan head that retains very well. The nose is of aromatic, toffee-sweet malts and notes of honey and cherry. The flavour is earthy, yeasty (bubble-gum) and fruity, with plum and fig notes, light caramel sweetness, minerals, bubble-gum yeast, some dirty barnyard notes and some warmth from the alcohol. The mouthfeel is slick with a nice medium carbonation and a syrupy finish.
