"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.

Bottle from Santa - a refreshing, light bodied Dubbel - very earthy, cellared aroma - musty, cobweb-like smells - kind of stale in the flavor, though - however, the light sweetness, gentle dark fruit and lively carbonation make it a fairly good belgian ale to be enjoying on this hot summer evening.

jefcon (1426) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Vinuous aromas of strawberryalcohol, tannin and some mustiness. On tasting, the fruit leans more towards a peach/nectarine/celery. Natural sweetness and a drying finish differentiate the palate from others. Lots of ruby color to the beer and a nice, tan head, too.

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2006
Dark brown pour with thick, tan head that reduces itself to floating islands of bubbles. The aroma is sweet, filled with cotton candy and ripened fruits including plums. The flavor is toward the sweet side with notes of candy, caramel, strawberry and plum. Slightly bitter finish with a touch of alcohol. The body is thin, the finish short. Average dubel.

ross (2100) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Dark brown colored pour. Smells yeasty and malty. A little darker than I thought it was going to be. A nice woody smell and taste. It went alright with a steak, but I could have enjoyed a bottle of wine much more with a steak than this beer. Its good, for sure. Its not the best dubbel Ive ever had.

The aroma has butterscotch, sugar, yeast, chocolate, grass, and some basement smells. The appearance is hazy red brown with a decent head. The flavor has all the elements of the aroma but it’s also a little odd. It is malty with some bitterness, cola, and alcohol. The palate is smooth but thin. Overall it’s alright but not one of the best Dubbel’s that I’ve had.

Bottle: Dark red colour, with anice creamy foam. Aroma of dark chocolate and citrus, malt,ashtry, and a nice bitterness in the end. Sweet cocoa, dark chocolate,a little bit of coffee in the mouth, nice balanced with a medium bitterness in the finish. Medium body. Nice beligium ale

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 22, 2006
Unknown vintage. No best by date. 11.2 oz bottle. The beer pours to a garnet red body with a thin fizzy head. The aroma is sweet yeasty green raisins. The flavor is bready, yeasty, clover honey, green raisins. Decent palate but a little sweet and cloying.
