"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 turbid burnt sienna, with aroma of dark fruit, Brett, some hops, horse blanket, female gymnast feet. Tastes caramel malty, with dark fruit (figs, cherry), some spices. A Belgian Bretty and caramel finish provides some dopplebockish finishing notes.

Perhaps because its the first beer of this style that I have rated, I was quite taken aback by the aroma, an eclectic mixture of peppermint, old leather saddles and dusty books in libraries... and the seaside. Frankly it didnít look too great, but the taste ... I just donít have the vocabulary to put it in words...

The flavour is here, but its rather erm...watery? Kind of a taste killah. Towards the bottom the german rock candy throws any balance out the door. Best thing about it is itís appearence and ease of drinking.

Bland and disappointing. A bit one-dimensionally sweet. Despite what the name implies, not a Trappist product.

mike mcneil (660) - St Augustine, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2005
Pours hazy maroonish-brown under a thin, whispy weak head. Pleasing aromas of rum, spices, raisin, fig, yeast and plum. First sip reveals a quite thin and watery palate for a Dubble which is disappoinitng. Sweet flavors of dark fruit, honey and caramel come through cleanly, but are too subdued and short-lived. A very drinkable Belgian Dubble, but lacks any complexity or depth.

Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - APR 9, 2005
Poured a murky brownish red color with a medium head. sweet aroma of fruits and spices. Flavor follows suit with a heavy dark fruit flavor of beets, figs etc. medium to light mouthfeel.

found this one a bit sweet and cloying....much fruit on the back door of bananas and spice, tobacco, and too much rock candy. we know which one is the best.....4 ring a bell.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2005
Pours a reddish brown color with a thin offwhite head that leaves decent lacing on the glass. Decent but simple aroma of malt with caramel and chocolate. The flavor is similar, malt, caramel and chocolate but with mild alcohol vapors. Light to medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation (unlike La Trappe blond). Itís ok but I feel thereís something missing.

Bottle , temp too dam cold!This was my third dubbel at the local pub.This was almost a clone of the grimbergen dubbel It was a sweet malty brew with some yeasty notes,lots a raisins and caramel A little too sweet.It had a medium to full mouthfeel ample carbonation a very good beer but pricey.The Westmalle was 8 the Latrappe 7 and the grimbergen 5 in dollars.Since they are all served way too cold for noting complexities the Grimbergen wins!

Cloudy and rust in color with a loose and quickly falling tan head. Pleasant aroma of figs, vanilla, brown sugar. Fruity flavor with caramel and spice. A bit of a dopplebock flavor. Clean finish with a somewhat thin body, though very drinkable.
