"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.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Pours an almost opaque dark red with a moderately thick head even after a gentle pour. However, the head quickly dissipates and has very little lacing. The aroma is sweet, with notes of caramel malt and dried fruit. Taste is similar with sweet caramel notes and flavors of dried cherries. Unfortunately, the alcohol doesnít seem to blend well with the other flavors and it leaves a decidedly alcoholic aftertaste. A good beer overall, but not a great dubbel.

0.33 l bottle. Ruby color with fluffy fading head. Sweetish aroma with chocolate, licorice, caramel and hint of dark fruits. Sweetish toasty flavor with chocolate, licorice and caramel. Smooth beer with no depth.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2008
Had tried this before in a bottle and recall being underwhelmed, so thought Iíd try this from the crock ! Pours a dark brown with a tan head that completely vanished. Sweet, vaguely spicy aroma. Flavour more of the same with some fruit and nutiness present and a slightly bitter sweet finish. Lacking in any real character though, and again disappointed by this. Not a good dubbel.

Koningshoeven is one of the Trappist Breweries, so you can be assured of a certain critical level of quality and respectability. It certainly brings that, as well as an intangible pleasantness and cerevisial happiness. Itís a quiet Trappist, but thatís a point in its favor as far as Iím concerned. Served in its own goblet. Caramelly brown -- quite pretty to look at. Pleasantly sweet -- never cloying, just the right amount of sweetness for a Dubbel. At 6.5% ABV, itís not so rigorous on the gullet, although Iíve never tried multiple servings in one go. To sum it all up, a quote from the Missus: "Itís like a hug in a bottle."

LadySusan (756) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2008
Bottle at Le Bistro des Bieres Belge. The color is dark reddish with a dark beige head. The aroma and flavor are of sweet fruits and caramel added. It has a nice sour finish to it that makes it very pleasant.

dark mohagany appearance with strong white head. flavor of some dark candy sugar but finishes with a grape-like winey characteristic. not gret depth, could benefit from more alcohol
