"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.

Nose is great - gentle and sweet with strong banana overtones. Very low carb with a weak head. Taste is a nice, unchallenging Dubbel with the typical Trappist/Abbey complexity. Finish lets it down a little with a flat and soapy quality a bit, but generally a fine abbey ale.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2005
33 cl bottle. Yeast in the bottle. Reddish brown colour with a nice rocky head. Lovely aroma of sugar, dried fruit and some caramel. Nice flavour of complexity with toffee and raisins, but not so good as the aroma. Ends up with a warm feeling from the alcohol.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2006 Dark ruby brown colour. Lasting tanned head. Fruity flavour leading to a gentle bitter finish. OK beer.

PorterPounder (5885) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2005
Whole Foods, Baton Rouge, La. - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a very thick, dark chestnut brown with a very thick, creamy eggnog colored head. Thik, molasses like aroma with some chewing tobacco notes and a hint of alcohol. Flavor has plenty of dates, raisins, baked brown bread, sweet ripe cherries and a hint of alcohol. Tastes like a dopplebock. Creamy mouthfeel, strong finish.

Pours a nice dark red with a diminishing head. Aroma is banana candy with a hint of spice. Tastes of banana bread with a slight nutty quality (maybe from pouring the yeast?) and touches of sugar candy, licorice. Some bit of spiciness in the finish serves to balance the sweet aroma and flavor. Fizzy feel with a little alcohol burn. Fairly yummy Trappist brew.

Not one of my first choices for a dubbel, but not bad overall. Not too sweet and fairly smooth.

Bottled. Ruby brown colour, small beige head. Aroma of lum, raisins, licorace, weakalcohol and some other things. Flavour of sweet cookies, raisins, licorace and weak sting of alcohol. Also some bitterness and sourness noted. Lovely palate, except that the carbonation is a bit hard.
