"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.

On tap @ In De Wildeman, Amsterdam. Pours clear plain brown, small beige head. Strong caramel aroma. Taste is caramel as well, moderately sweet with some yeast and spices. Minimal hopped, and a rather thin mouthfeel. Drinkable, oh yes, but I miss the complexity a trappist dubbel should have.

750cc. bottle. Moderately opaque, medium brown color. Ephemeral light beife head. Yeasty, a bit corky in aroma. Light bodied, unfortunately thin feeling. Moderate to plus carbonation. Peppery, yeasty flavors. Modest alcohol. Decent at best.

750ml bottle. Pours black with a thick off-white head. Aroma of malt, yeast and black cherry. Some caramel too. Flavor is about the same, rather malty. Dry finish. A bit carbonated. Alcohol really present for 6.5%. Good one.

Bottle from Koningshoeven 4 pack. Poured dark brown with a large fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate toasted caramel malty tart fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium balanced malty flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.

Not much smell in this one, pretty good for an belgian beer, some bitterness, fudge and the usually strong alcoholic taste

Tranquillity (1506) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2006
Bottle. Looks quite dark but in my Westmalle glass the foam seems to enjoy itself to the max. This is a beer with a delicate aroma of malt, roasted peanuts and cognac. The beer itself is wonderfully fluffy, with full flavours of tickling raisins in the beginning, turning towards port to finish with nuts, rum...mmm.... yummy. The aftertaste looses its bitterness after a few sips. There is something which quite doesn’t fit in this one, like the flavour attaching when you make homebrews with dirty equipment. But maybe its this bottle, and its not strong, but barely noticable. Fantastic stuff!

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Mahogany with a nice cap of tan head. Dark, spicy ginger bread aroma. A little bit of wet grass. Spicy rye bread flavor with some vegetal, medicinal notes. Nice palate, light but not too thin. Really some good flavors here, just not particularly clean.

Koningshoeven 4pk. - purchased in Norman at hob nob robs. Fantastic nose pours dark red with tan bubbly head. I used a Chimay glass which felt right. The taste was right in line with many of the Belgian Trappist ales with a bit more chocolate/caramel maltiness. Very nice.

Bought it in a Koningshoeven 4pk with a Trappist Glass. Dark amber in color. Zesty malt aroma. Flavors of dark fruits like plums or figs. Light texture. Very fizzy. Slightly warming.

Strong, caramel-filled aroma. Very strongly fruity, with raisins and plums. Somewhat spicy. The flavor is not nearly as complex or full-bodied or sweet as the aroma. It leaves me feeling like it could have a bit more meat to it, and is in fact, pretty thin.
