"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.

From bottle. Fresh bitter aroma of fruit. Great deep red colour with a nice off white head. Nice rich flavour, smooth and slightly spiced. Caramel and liquorice mixed in. Good finish with a slight tangyness. Lovely beer. Has character.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2011 Had this in the Netherlands, Excellent abbey dubbel. Great appearance, fruity aroma, trappist yeast... not as complex or strong as other abbey beers which makes it excellent for beginners (and experts). Re-Rate. Ok so I was unexperienced with taste 4 years ago. Had this on tap @ the Maproom again last week. Poured a dark amber with a tan head that lasted for ever. Aroma of dark fruits, figs and carmel malts. Taste is similar with a nice belgian sugar finish. Quite good for a dubbel. Really easy to find around here. Would buy again.

Muggus69 (1390) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2007
Serving this bottle at roughly cellar temperature. Roasted malts, nuts and some dark fruits on the nose, plum and cherry possibly, with a bit of sweetness in there. Surupy dark brown body with some off-white lace. Body is not as rich as I would have wanted. Flavour is quite well balanced, some toffee and nuts, drying black coffee, a tannic dark cherry quality in there. Not as rich as other examples of the style, which is a bit disappointing. Still a very nice beer regardless!

MiP (13998) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2007
Bottle. Very dark brown colour. Very small head. The flavour is not sweet, but not exactly dry either. Perhaps a little sweetness in the fruitiness along with roasted notes.

churchill00 (154) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2007
Definably fruity--almost no head with sweet (dates?) aftertaste. Still prefer Rochefort when it comes to Trappist ales, but this is not bad.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Very nice. Ruby reddish brown body with a big (but quickly dissipating) head. Aroma was chock full of fruits, from peaches and grapefruit to figs and prunes. Flavor is a bit fruity and bready, but light and not too sweet. Maybe not as nuanced as some Belgians I’ve had, but very good.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - MAR 3, 2007
An excellent beer. Aroma of dark fruits, licorice, malty and almost some kind of nut bread aroma. Appearance is a dark brownish/reddish hue, small off-white head. Mouthfeel is a little lighter, perhaps a bit too carbonated but still nice. Flavor is raisins, alcohol, nutmeg and some yeast. An excellent example of this style.

Excellent abbey dubbel. Great appearance, fruity aroma, trappist yeast... not as complex or strong as other abbey beers which makes it excellent for beginners (and experts). Great beer. (Have to get another and re-rate it for my memory is not that good for tiny details).

Sampled while in the Netherlands. A very nice brew with a strong aroma and nice dark brown appearance. Head when poured was thick and tasty. Flavor was tremendous. A great beer.
