"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.

Pours a murky amber colour with a big white head. Very littel hops taste, but instead a fruity, spice taste that has a fullness

Agreed with Shag on the banana nut bread feel. I found the aroma pleasant enough. Got a few cloves and yeasty flavors out of it, some banana, and something a little darker... darker fruits maybe... something intangible perhaps. Either way, excellent.

all though it was rather light on the palate this beer had full flavor. A dicent malt mix of fruits, caramel and bread notes blended in smoothly on the inital taste, finishing with a mellow alcohol finish.

Shag (2607) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 5, 2006
The beer poured a murky brown color with a large head. The aroma is dough, banana nut bread, and caramel. The flavor is rather sweet with a rather thin body. The flavor consists of nutmeg, caramel, nutmeg, and bananas. It was pretty good.

light brown color with a slight wash of dirty brown head. large alcohol and egg aroma to it. Smooth and smokey malts in this decent brew.

A tasty little devil that managed to restore my faith in the beers of the King’s Garden monastery of La Trappe. I obviously should have waited until I had tasted the four before rating them as this had the same toffee and caramel flavour similar to all of them, pity this was the only one that managed to balance it. Slowly poured it produced a wickedly dense and creamy, sandy beige head that settled in for the length and clung firmly to the glass. The body of beer a deep ruby red with the clarity of honey. Predominantly fruity aroma; zesty plums and berries, biting spices and a little nutmeg. Smooth and well rounded In the mouth with the dessert-style gooey toffee notes, which are initially quite pronounced, quickly balanced out with a mix of rich, dark chocolate, zesty cherries, burnt wood and slightly nutty, roasted malts. A light vinous note comes into play as it warms and follows through into the dry, malty bitter, chocolaty swallow that was easily the highlight of this one. It had after dinner beer written all over it. Not exactly one for a bender, but two or three would suit a good couple of hours as it was a delicious slow sipper. One of the best from this newly re-administered Trappist monastery. Lovely!!! (30cL, BBE 11/07, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Dark brown. Small, short lived light tan head. Roasty malt, caramel, dark fruits, candi sugar, subtle alcohol-aroma. Flavors are rich malt, caramel/toffee, dark fruits, sugar, yeast. Roasty aftertaste. Medium body. Lighter than expected. Very smooth. Easy drinking. Nice brew.

saxo (14044) - Hřjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2006
Dark brown colour with a slim tan head. Fruity, sweet and malty aroma. Malty, caramel and liquorice flavour, also somewhat of a medicinal taste to it. Quite highly carbonated and medium bodied

larsga (6218) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2006
Dark red body under a thin white ring of foam. Sweet licorice aroma with notes of anise, bread, and toffee, as well as some banana. Deep, strong, sweet taste of sourish wild berries (huh?), marzipan (just said it was sourish, didn’t I?), and licorice. Aftertaste is vaguely bitter and roasty, with lingering sweetness. Some alcohol is detectable. A good dubbel, although perhaps a bit weak.
