"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.

Caramel, coriander aroma, not strong. Medium off-white head, hazy dark brown color. Strong taste, sweet, spicy, with some dark fruit flavor. Medium to high body.

Bottle. Pours brown. Aroma and taste is mostly pear. Its ok, but its way to much pear and its not very complex.

tekstr1der (340) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Very good, though a bit thin. Pours a nice deep mahogany with lasting top of beige foam. Aroma is malty with caramel and candi sweetness. Flavor follows very similarly, but feels like something is missing there, mostly due to the thin mouthfeel.

hauxe (290) - Butzbach, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2016
Pours dark from the bottle. The creamy head has a yellowish tinge. Lots of yeast and banana in the aroma. First taste is pleasingly complex, with the burnt caramel malt overtone nicely leavened by a nicely balanced sweetened sasparilla, and hints of dark fruit but also, faintly, strawberry. Finish is warming and a bit alcoholic. Good but not among the best of the Dubbels.

ardeo (94) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2016
33cl Belle bière brun rouge à mousse retombante. Nez : prune, raisin, caramel. Bouche : caramel, orange, épices ... pas du tout écoeurante. Arrière-bouche légèrement amère. Encore une superbe bière de la brasserie ’trappiste’ HOLLANDAISE (pour une fois ! :-)

Tomada do tap, em um cálice La Trappe. Coloração de madeira escura, levemente avermelhada, com espuma sólida e duradoura, de boa formação. Aroma doce, com notas de tabaco, frutas secas, passas, ameixa. Na boca, doce, sabor de chicletes e as mesmas frutas do aroma, final quase sem amargor, mas a presença do alcool é sentida pelo calor. Corpo médio, baixa carbonatação, sem comprometer o bom equilíbrio.

nybol (1130) - DENMARK - MAR 13, 2016
God sødme, og næsten ingen smag af humle og en lille snert af gærrester (tror jeg det må være). En god dubbel med den "klassiske" belgiske smag (selvom den er hollandsk).
