"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.

MrBeachtwig (54) - Sandared, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2007
Bottle. Wonderful deep red colour with big head. Nice kind of sweet taste, a bit fruity. Too little body though and taste dissapears a bit too quickly. Had better beer of this style.

IndianaRed (2803) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Bottle pours a deep mahogany/brown with a full lasting creamy tan head. Aroma is brown sugar, apples, cinimon and dark pitted fruits. Flavor was similar, apple butter and dark malts. Very little bitterness, smooth rich feel, lively carbonation. great example of the style. Thanks Jordan.

jake65 (2881) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Bottle: Amber ruby color with a large beige head and nice lacing. Nose is fruity, malty, yeast, wine, and a bit of raison. On par for the style. Tastes sweet with dark fruits, malt, and a crisp finish. A little caramel sweetness with the maltiness smooths it out. Thank you Jordan for sharing this.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Dark Brown with Red Hue and Sandy Head. Dry Malt, Yeast and Spiced Aroma. Medium Mouthfeel...Nice and Creamy...and Quite Smooth. Wonderful Layers of Malt...Very Aromatic Even While Drinking. Cinnamon, Cloves and Nutmeg Dance On your Tongue While Sweet Dry Malts Do the Lions Share of the Work. Nice Bready Quality to it. Overall Just a Really Drinkable Dubbel.

pilsnerrogge (2618) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2007
[bottle] Clear ruby red colour. Large and thick head. Fruity and spicy aroma. Malty and dry, spicy (nutmeg, cinnamon?) flavour.

EithCubes (5215) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle. Luscious dark malt nose, plums with dark fruit, subtle spice, and faint brown sugar. Deep dark dull red body with strong carbonation and an excited tanned head. Sweet taste of dark fruit. Bubblegum and plum. Velvety malt doesn’t match the carbonation, and body is too thin, even for a dubbel. Aftertaste is kinda bland. Very slightly warming. Wow, didn’t think I was going to kill this - it’s good! - but it’s just a little too uninteresting.

garthicus (2783) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle - Served in Trappist glass, nice nutty and fruity aroma, little head, deep complex flavour, very hard to put my finger on all the flavours, enjoyable

winkle (477) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottled: Beer served too cold, excuse me while I give myself an uppercut. Poured a deep copper with a tan medium head. Quite active carbonation, the aroma featured stewed fruit, plums, brown sugar, grapes and alcohol. Flavour was similar - stone fruit, leather, alcohol up front and a touch of pepper. Balanced by a light bitter finish. Quite nice but not quite up to some of its trappist brothers IMO.

Bottle. 11.2 fl. oz. Koningshoeven Dubbel. Dark reddish-brown color with off-white, frothy head. Sweet, raisin yeasty aroma. Medium to full bodied with a very dry texture and lively carbonation. Sweet flavor with some lingering bitterness.
