"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.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2006
Bottle Labeled Konings Hoeven Dubbel - Pours dark brown with a fair offwhite head that stays well and laces. Aromas of chocolate, raisin, roasted malts, yeast. Flavor is chocolate, raisin, lots of yeast, some roasted notes, a little candi sugar. Palate is soft and well carbonated. Not bad.. Cool thing is this one was $1.25 at the Andersons because they couldn’t figure out the price..

POD (198) - USA - DEC 28, 2006
Dark mahogany red pour with ample head. Rich strong sweet brew that will make your liver quiver if consumed too quickly. Fine Dubbel. Very drinkable.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2006
Very murky redish-brown body, many particles and a tan head that is as short lived as my new year’s resolutions. A simple but effective mix of sweet liquorice candy, caramel and earthy berries. Far behind these main flavours I get some floral nectar, some figs and some medicine (cough syrup). Limited hops presence, to say the least. Soft carbonation. Doesn’t feel special or unique but still highly drinkable.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - DEC 9, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 Sweet, smooth, thick and brown. A little bit too much fruitiness (banana, melon) on the nose and taste, otherwise very good and highly enjoyable. Good smooth carbonation and mouth feel. I remember the tap version having a bit more fruitiness than the 0.33l bottle I had.

gnoff (8118) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2006
(30 cl bottle from a friend from Holland) Clear red brown color, huge tan head. Sweet, raissin and cheeze, alcohol scent. Sweet sugary alcohol taste, candy sweet aftertaste. Low bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2006
Deep reddish-brown with a fair amount of yeast particles. Heavy sugar, apple aroma. Taste is very bready with some fruit. Aftertaste leaves something to be desired. Not bad, but could be better considering its a Trappist.

Stew41 (1790) - 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.

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2006
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.
