"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.

Stew41 (1771) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - NOV 29, 2006
Dark brown, almost cola like with a nicely formed thin head. Meaty, malty nose with some candied sugars. Fairly similar to taste but again intensity errs on the side of caution and finishes a touch weak. Quite fizzy to my palate. (e3.0 @ Café Arendnest)

PorterCall (44) - (Formerly UK), DENMARK - NOV 25, 2006
33cl bottle. Nutty cereal aroma. A good head. Hint of chocolate. Medium to the palate with average to lively carbonation. Fairly complex. A fairly decent brew.

Pours dark, cloudy, reddish/brown with a nice tan head. Strong yeast and dark fruit aromas. Upfront yeast and fruit flavors, slight spice, with nice slight hop bitterness on the finish. Palate is medium, well balanced, creamy, and crisp.

high alcohol content, but that’s to bwe expected with these types of beers. The alcohol didn’t overwhelm, and the pour was as smooth as the flavor. Although I liked the quad more, this one is a great beer in its own right. I recommend you try this one, but make sure you grab a quad to complare.

Kinz (3376) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2006
Deep red with amber hints, nice head fades slowly, bordering on creamy. Aroma is of fresh baked bread. Flavor is also of freshly baked, dark bread, with some faint, undefined dark fruit undertones. Maybe cherries? The sheer depth of the flavor is nice, perhaps not the most complex, but clearly rich and satisfying. I liked this considerably more than the tripel, as I think the bread flavors hang better with a dubbel than a tripel. Good stuff.

DerWeg (1533) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2009 Cloudy medium dark brown hue under a light fizzy cap. Aroma of lightly honeyed malts leads into like flavor - flavor augmented with some deep fruity tones and a pleasant crisp foretongue carbonation and subdued hint of lingering hop bitterness. Full and rich, like something between chocolate and ripe fruit. A solid 14 overall. ** slight addnote ** further sampling, surprisingly solid body, a wonderful note of apple amidst the rich malts and fig/raisin flavors. Kind of dopplebok like in the wet hay / honey character. nice beer! I’m partial to this brewer’s products.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2006
Brownish red with a creamy, albeit low, tan head. Malty aroma with chocolaty orange and some chilly freshness which might be hops or perhaps the winter cold messing with my nose. Mayybe also a hint of alcoholic spicyness... Although the alcohol doesn’t really shout at you it doesn’t feel very well masked. Not what I usually expect from an abbey that isn’t stronger than this. Feels fairly thin but roughly sweet, malty chocolate that has a bitter aftertaste is the main thing. Not sure about the hops but they do show, I think.

dark brown beer that pours with a bit of a disappoint head for a trappist beer. aroma is sweet and malty. flavor is sweet, needs more hops, and slightly spicy from the yeast. good palate. dissappointing for a trappist beer.
