"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.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 11, 2006
Poured from the bottle, a deep reddish brown, lots of carbonation and a slightly off-white thin head. The aroma is yeasty, with plenty of fruit (sweet oranges) and some peppery spice. Very carbonated mouthfeel, yeast again strong in the flavour (and honey), but with a syrupy smoothness than sticks to the tongue.

10:58 K23K1. Konings hoeven label. Pours dark mahogany into a trappist glass. Conglomerate head quickly recedes to the rim. Medicinal fig notes. Full bread, date and fig flavors with a quick, but warming finish.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2006
33 cl bottle. No best before date. Deep copper tinted brown beer with a thin tan head. Some yeasty chunks because I wasn’t paying attention during the pour. Sweet plummy aroma, brown sugar, brown bread, warm baking spices (cinnamon and nutmeg). A peachy fruitiness as well. Smells like peach cobbler. Sweet berry and a lightly yeasty aroma as well. Flavour matches the aroma pretty well, some toffee and caramelized fruit, plummy but not overdone. Really silky texture with flavours of kettle caramelization, rye toast. As it warms the flavours and aromas become even more intense. Sweet, but not sugary with loads of bready and fruity notes. Long warm baked fruit bread finish. Very enjoyable brew.

Dedollewaitor (14641) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 10, 2006
red brown colour. At first I taste a lot of smoke then perhaps plums (fruit). In the end its filling and has a fine finish. Personally the plum & smoke combination is a bit too much for me! Defenetly not a trappist I would prefer if I had to pick from all 7 breweries!

CMUBEERMAN (421) - - APR 4, 2006
Pours a light crimson brown and has a soft thin mocha colored head. Aroma is is a bit acidic...not much else...even as it warmed. Slight bits of yeast and fruit...kind of a miss if you ask me. Flavor is much fuller than the aroma. Dry malt, candy sugar, roastiness, and pepper. Very sweet. Mouthfeel is sufficiently thick.

shrubber85 (8992) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 1, 2006
Bottle. Strong plum, molasses aroma. Orange/reddish brown cloudy color with small head. Moderately sweet molasses malt flavor - lightly smokey. Smooth finish - just the lightest hint of bitterness. Nice smooth dubbel.

chicagobears (434) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2006
Murky brown red with some spices and yeast floating about. Well carbonated. Sweet malty smell of dark fruits. Good bite for a dubbel. Malt and spice combination. Not sure of what variety but its nice. Mildy sticky. Not overly complex band certainly not plain.
