COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

First brewed in 1987.
Ingredients: Water, Barley malt, Hops, Yeast.
"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.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2006 Draught
Dark ruby brown, lots of lace, not much head. Fruity, sahti-like banana nose. Sweet, banana flavor, a bit fuller body than in Blonde. (7/4/7/3/14 3.5).
Re-rate, bottled (BB 01/2009). Dark ruby color, big tan head. Raisins, brown sugar and some metal in the nose. Carbonated mouthfeel. Brown sugar, raisins and plums in the flavor. A bit too simple as "trappist dubbel" but drinkable. (6/4/7/3/13 3.3)

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2006 (Bottled) Hazy Coca-Cola color with a small, tanned, lasting head. Dunkelweizen-like aroma of caramel, banana fruitiness, yeast, some roasted malt, and hints of licorice. Quite acidic and roasted-malty, neutral flavor with hints of coffee and iron, plus an ashy, dry finish. A bit thin and ashy, light to medium-bodied palate with foamy carbonation. Very easily drinkable with no signs of alcohol. A quite weird combination of Schwarzbier, Abbey Dubbel, Sahti, and Dunkelweizen. Like the Blonde, it’s not quite up to the Trappist standards, IMO. (Draught, rated 8/22/2004, was 7-5-7-4-14=3.7) Very nice, deep dark red color with a medium, beige head. Sweetish, malty banana-candy aroma. Very sweet, quite malty and fruity flavor with banana. Quite full-bodied, sugary palate with well-balanced carbonation. A quite nice, sahti-like dubbel.

Geiserich (3387) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 18, 2004
Aroma has dried fruits, is winey and fruity. Taste has sourness, spices and a apple or cider note.

Dark brown. Ghost of a head maintained across the surface. Sharp nose. Alcohol up front and then fades. Malty and smooth.

duvel tulip glass: very dark ruby. brown, tight, and slightly rocky head. spicy, tart, and fruity flavor; slight caramel and slight raisin. medium body. refreshing. i feel that i sampled this brew at the wrong time. this reminds me of a very fruity brown ale. i prefer the quad. my palate had lasted touched Midas Touch by DH.

turbothy (1090) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2004
Pours a nice red colour with a complex, spicy aroma. Taste is less exciting but still good, with spice, roast and hops nicely balanced.

RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2004 330ml Bottle. Not bad, easily bettered by other Trappist Abbey Dubbels I have had (Westmalle Dubbel, Chimay Red). A quarter of the bottle shot out of the top on opening, so didn't get to try the complete bottle. However, I drank enough to realise that this is sweet and fruity, with some spiciness. Decent beer, nothing compared to the Trappists though.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2004
Nice red colour with very small head, looks almost as a glass of red wine. Aroma is sweet with lots of fruit. Flavor is very, very sweet, to sweet for my taste.

Nice deep copper red color with a nice tan head. Raisiny aroma, nice and pleasant. Fruity flavor up front but then really dry. Thin palate.
