"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.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 Bottle from Stirchley Wines and Spirits, Birmingham. Rather darl brown, with only the preliminary sketch of a head. Smells like tobacco and tar. Petrol start then a plasticky, tepid veg, finishing on a sweet (oversweet) pastey wheat. Like a liquified plastic bag in fact. An uneven blend of none-too pleasant notes. I expect better from anything labelling itself a Dubbel. (original rating 25th July 2005). RE-RATED 23 May 2013. >> I must have been off my head when I scored this beer so low, way back in 2005. Tonight, I have supped a 500ml ceramic bottle of the stuff and I love it! I love Dubbels generally and this is a classic one - sweet, faint leather, molasses, feint heat from the alc. LOVE IT. REALLY REALLY GOOD>

Bottled. Cloudy brown coloured with a beige head. Sweet spicy aroma with notes of fruits. Sweet flavour of fruits especially bananas and spices with notes of tobacco and alcohol.

Pours deep amber with thin tan head. Nose is faint floral and soapy notes. I see lots of "chocolate" ratings here. I donít taste any... just dark fruits (figs, dates, plum), apple, and yeasty spice. Rather thin, and water aftertaste. OK but not my favorite Dubbel.

Definitely a trappist beer (although Dutch). Deep brown Ale with caramel chocolate taste. Very smooth and strong. Not as strong as some of itís trappist brothers but in the vein definitely. Available at Downtown Wine & Spirits in Somerville, MA

Strong malt hop aroma. Dark brown colour with good head served in a very fancy glass! Smooth malt flavour. Fizzy palate.

schuimkroaat (424) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2005
33 cl bottle, bbe June 2001 (thus, 4 years over date). Deep chestnut brown, murky and turbid, large and quite stable creamy beige head. Apparently not much sediment. Aroma of caramel and brown candy sugar with a sharp (a bit worn) estery note and a hint of chocolate. Flavour is soft, smooth and mellow, with prevailing chocolate, light tart and very subtly bitter. The tooth of time can be felt in the slight oxidation. Creamy and rich palate in the beginning, finishing with a light kefir (fermented milk drink originating in the Caucasus)-like prickleness.

Good beers like this would make for the best hair color colors. Maroon color with a foamy head. Prickly in the mouth with a tasty sweetness.

ericnixon (741) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Wow, one super nice dark reddish color with a thick head and an appetizing fruity nose. Very fizzy mouthfeel at first, but that slides away very quickly and is replaced by a medium-bodied maltyness. Some cherry flavors in there as well.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Deep crimson with a large, soft head. The aroma jumps from the tulip - cherry, apple, banana and sweet candy blend nicely. More fruitiness quickly mixes with bitter chocolates before moving into a rather bland, disappointing finish. The body seems slightly stunted, as the flavors donít really develop fully.
