"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.

Pored dark brown with a touch of red. More Syruppy and less carbonated than other Dubels I’ve tried. Nice

750mL bottle, no date. Clear ruby with a 2 1/2 finger fairly creamy lasting beige head. This isn’t as dark as most dubbels I’ve come across. Powdered sugared raisins, brown sugar, and scorched caramel are the most up front. There is also some light roasted malts and Belgian yeast. Flavor has the addition of hazelnut and some slight acidic tang from maybe some grape characteristics. Dry finish. Fairly smooth medium body with moderate carbonation. I enjoyed this more than the tripel--quite nice.

wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Draft...a rich brown ale with an apple-like aftertaste. There are some sour flavors to go along with the sweet. Carbonation less than what I’m used to with this style. Overall not bad, but not my favorite Abbey Dubbel.

Lowe1983 (1393) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2007
Pours a dark copper color with an off-white head. Aroma is of plums, toffee, caramel, and molasses. Not as strong as I’m used to with the style. Flavors are pretty much the same with the dark fruits, toffee, molasses, and carmel being the stronger flavors. Pretty good but there are better beers from this style.

thegreenrooster (3601) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Pour is a dark red with a average tan head. Aroma is nice dark malts and some yeast with some alcohol showing up. Flavor is a touch of dark fruits and molasses with some toffee. Finish is kinda watery though. An ok rep of the style and what i would consider a starter beer for those new to the style.

vyvvy (4777) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 14, 2007
Pours mahogany with a deep red hue and tight light tan head. The aroma is light with some dark bready malt and light yeast, and that’s it. Medium body that starts smooth and rich and gets thinner with lively carbonation. The taste is very subdued for a dubbel with some toffee and toasted malt with a bit of earthy yeast. The finish has some sharp sour traits. This is very mellow and unassertive for the style. Fair example.

TheJester (2218) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2007
330 mL bottle. Translucent ruby brown with a very acceptable head. Aroma is plums & raisins, roast malt, and spice. Taste is similar, with the addition of caramel and black coffee. Alcohol is well hidden, and the beer is nicely carbonated. Smooth and full. A good one.
