"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.

Clear brown ale with a creamy white head. Sweet caramel aroma with orange, nuts, and smooth alcohol. In mouth, tingly soices come out over the sweet candy malt, with light alcohol notes. Bottle at Pub Italia.

11.2 oz bottle, gift pack w/ a glass purchased 12/23/05: Lasting beige head on a mohogany brown, hazy body. Aroma is metallic, buttery (diacetyl from age), earthy and leathery. This stuff is OLD!!!!!!!! Some raisiny dark fruit, but mosty just old and buttery! Well balanced, raisiny, buttery, toasty malt, and a bit of alcohol flavor. Higher carbonation, lighter med. body, and smooth. Not the beer I imagined, but then again, it seems sort of old!!! Will re rate if I get a better, more fresh bottle!!!!

freekyp (1476) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2006 Iím all about the Beligians but I think I got a spoiled bottle here. It reeked of must old cellar and sewage and tasted about the same. Some Chimay-like notes shined through now and again, but the overall musty character was too much. Iíll definitely give it another shot. ReRate 06/19/2006: Still innundated with a musty cellar aroma, but no sewage tones. Similar to a lighter bodies Chimay, it just does not have the style or delivery of itís contemporary. Dissapointing.

Panzerfaust (561) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - DEC 16, 2005
Dark brown beer with some red tones and a huge beige and creamy head with good retention. Aroma is pleasant, fruity and rich in malt with apples, pears, banana and small hints of nougat. Flavor is surprisingly bittersweet with notes of coffee, bitter chocolate and hazelnuts. Texture is a little thin but the mouthfeel is very good. Aftertaste is long and more bitter than sweet. Great with cheeses!.

ABUSEDGOAT (2336) - California, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Better than the Blond at least. Dark reddish brown body with a small fizzy head and absolutely no lacing. Berry dominates the aroma and flavor. I canít stand their yeast strain, it makes their beers like a musty basement. Not much for hops here. Blah.

This abbay dubbel has much more flavor than the one I tried yesterday. Nice dubbel beer of the trappist brewery Koningshoeven. Long lasting light brown head, dark body. Excellent beer!

Boutip (4656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2005
Bottle: Poured a dark brown color ale with a medium off-white foamy head with average retention. Aroma of sugary malt with some Belgian type yeast. Taste is really good with a nice mix between sweet caramel malt and fresh cookie with a touch of Belgian yeast. The mouthfeel is a creamy but also watery and I believe this is the main default of this beer. Body is way too thin for the style.

Nose is great - gentle and sweet with strong banana overtones. Very low carb with a weak head. Taste is a nice, unchallenging Dubbel with the typical Trappist/Abbey complexity. Finish lets it down a little with a flat and soapy quality a bit, but generally a fine abbey ale.
