"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.

Foam is close, continuous and absolutely beautiful. At the same time filled my nose with an expectant malty aroma. When I lift the glass to assess the flavor is enhanced malt aroma and mixed with a light hop and lots of fruit. Foam still hangs thick on the inside of the glass and the taste is first sweetish. So sweet that you should first think it is a beer fr dessert, but in the subsequent second opens the beer itself and fills the mouth with the sweet caramel malt, the bitter but still light hops and the refreshing and tasty fruit flavors which include plums. I also sense a faint taste nuance of nuts. On the whole, the taste is very complex and full-bodied, and although I have always loved Westmalle Dubbel very high and loyal so I think this dubbel is quite on the same level. The finish is long and pleasantly bitter and slightly marked by a little acidity. Can certainly be recommend very highly.

Batavi (169) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2015
Uitgeschonken in La Trappe bokaal, bruin bier, een mahoniekleur met rode gloed, mediumhoge beige schuimkraag die zich na enkele minuten terugtrekt tot een fijne schuimring. Volle iets zoete aroma's van karamel, rozijnen, en fruit esters. Meteen de kenmerkende zoetige bananensmaak die in meerdere La Trappe bieren terug te vinden is. Verdere tonen van koekjes, chocolade, lichte koffie, in de verte iets van aarde en leer. De afdronk is lang mooi hopbitter met een zachte carbonatie. De dubbel van La Trappe haalt bijna het niveau van de Westmalle dubbel. Verfijnd medium complex en met een een mooie lange afdronk. Het is interessant om dit bier enkele jaren te bewaren, het krijgt dan een meer wijnachtig aroma en smaakpallet. Zoals ik ooit heb geproefd bij een 75 cl. fles. Net als bij Westmalle dubbel geen grenadine toevoegen! Het bier is zoet genoeg van zichzelf en het bederft de smaakcomplexiteit en de afdronk van dit mooie Trappisten bier.

Paladares (102) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 24, 2015
Botella. Color ámbar oscuro casi opaco. Bien de espuma, de color ligeramente beige. Aroma delicioso. Afrutado con un sorprendente predominio de la pera. También algo de uvas pasas. En boca cambia. Predomina el caramelo. Dulce para un final seco, pelín amargo y moderadamente alcohólico, sobre todo en el postgusto. Bastante rica, aunque quizá con un punto alcohólico demasiado notable para su graduación.
