"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.

750ml Koningshoeven Dubbel bottle @ Hamiltonís shared with my pal Josh in from San Fran. Pours dark ruddy brown with a 1 finger tan head. Candy sugar aroma, slightly sweet. Taste is sweet and malty with a slightly cloying candy sugar taste. Pretty good, not so hot overall, has some kind of taste that really doesnít fit me all that well, but got better as it warmed as most belgians tend to.

bottle - Pours amber with a thin, lingering head. It has a dark fruit aroma. Iím picking up grapes and possibly some plums. The flavor is really fruity with yeast and malt dominating. Itís medium bodied and has a smooth finish. I really liked this one.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 12, 2007
Bottle: Ruby mahogany color, light head and lacing. Nose of metal, starchy sweet malts and a yeasty doughy essence. The flavor is nice and malty, much more turbinado/jaggery esque int he flavor than in the nose. The finish is plenty chewy, but is still stale and imported tasting. A bit oxidized.

Ingevara (860) - SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2007
Stiff frothy head. Coffee-brown color. Slightly fruity, the carachteristic stale belgian flavor, but not too overwhelming. Quite drinkable.

FatPhil (11008) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 10, 2007
330ml bottle. Light, but rich red colour. Steady creamy head. Sharp and sour aroma - no distinct details. Fizzes on the tongue, slight bitter taste then a huge sweet fruity malt washes over the tongue and leaves a very long finish. Some almonds.

Rotorhead87 (119) - Temple, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Starts with a malty caramel flavor that gives way to a milder flavor with some fruitiness as well. A fairly simple trappist but still quite good. Their quad is better and more complex, so it gets my vote.

$2.99 for this 33cl. I really like this Dubbel. I will admit it isnít the best of them, but it doesnít claim to be. Dark red/brown like the others have said with a healthy head. Drinkable, carbonated, smooth and fresh. Iím giving a high rating in spite of the simplicity. I could drink it all the time.
