"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.

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.

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 26, 2007
Interesting beer. Intense and persistent taste of toasted malt, much more of coffee and chocolate. Short while extreme carbonation, but does not compromise the set. Absolute lack of aroma. But, in compensation, the cream is thick and consistent........................................ Bem interessante essa escurinha. Gosto intenso e persistente de malte torrado, muito mais do que café e chocolate. Carbonatação um pouco excessiva, mas não compromete o conjunto. O que mata um pouco é a absoluta falta de aroma. Mas, em compensação, o creme é espesso e consistente.

Dragonfly1 (498) - Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Hop Leaf, Chicago. On tap. No head, almost wine-y in texture and flavor. Not what I would have expected from a dubbel. Wonder if a bottle would have been different...

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - FEB 25, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 It is the strong Dunkel than I remember to have taken. Palate accented of coffee, caramel, toasting and, over all, chocolate bitter taste (pure cacao). Perhaps therefore its palate tent to the sweet one. Very good aroma and cream, however too carbonated. Pretty color (brown). I detach as weak point the bitter taste that is in the tongue, extreme to mine. Very subtle aftertaste. Evident alcohol.

Bottle. Amber red color with a large fizzy good lacing off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramael, chokolate, moderate yeasty, brown sugar. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and modrate bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2007
Bottle (form Bitter Virtue)> Fruity and toffeeish on the nose with mild yeast. Slightly sweet with mild tartness. Very smooth with the sweetness more restrained than in some beers. On the whole unimpressive but quite drinkable.

Burrobuns (83) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - FEB 18, 2007
I did not really care for the flavor. For some reason all i could taste was sweat. No idea why. Other than that, it looked quite nice, but still I ended up disappointed.

faroeviking (10285) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 14, 2007
Bottel. Dark red-brown colour with a nice big creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel and malt, slightly yeasty with spices. Flavour is sweet and bitter, good maltiness, caramel, some spiciness and fruitiness. Bitter-sweet finish. Very tasty beer.

Abit of a disappointment after the Blond, but good nevetrheless. Chocolate and caramel predominate. Not really to my taste.
