"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.

huineman (364) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 12, 2015
Dark cloudy brown, with a thick beige head that lingers long time. Intense aromas of chocolate, vine leaf, red berries, bread, coffee and honey. Medium sweet, powerful and full-bodied. Creamy, with hints of salty and savoury flavors as it delves down the mouth. Long finish with memories of coffee and milk. Great.

rotaman14 (269) - Potsdam, GERMANY - APR 7, 2015
Pours a hazy brown colour, with a lasting off-white head. Pronounced aroma of yeast, banana and biscuits. Balanced malty taste, that reminds me of cake and grapes. Dryish aftertaste remains. Interesting and complex.

Po przelaniu do szkła (kielich do belgijskiego piwa) połowy zawartości butelki zobaczyłem pod światło piękny przejrzysty rubin. Piana beżowa z drobnych i średnich pęcherzy szybko opadła, nie pozostawiając śladu na szkle. Po dolaniu reszty ukazał się nieciekawy widok w postaci grubych farfocli (drożdżowych) unoszących się w płynie. Aromat delikatny, ciemnych słodów i karmelu oraz alkoholu. W smaku jest bardziej wytrawnie z dodatkiem ciemnych owoców typu wiśnia i śliwka. Z czasem daje o sobie znać wysokie wysycenie, zaś alkohol objawia się ciepłem w żołądku. Pity pod koniec stycznia tripel zrobił na mnie lepsze wrażenie.

tbonde (138) - DENMARK - MAR 31, 2015
33cl bottle@home in Trappist glass@approx 8 degrees C. Pours dark brown with sufficient light brown head. Aroma of malt, caramelised malt and fresh hay. Deep, dark taste with roasted malt, honey and faint tasty liqourice, leaving with a pleasant bitterness in the aftertaste. Gets better as it warms up. Good stuff...the best I have had from La Trappe so far.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Very dark brown color, thin ivory head cover, 3 or 4 lace dots. Aroma of dark malt and dried fruit. Taste is strong carbonated malt that adds dried fruit-cake fruit and prunes in the palate, then growing significantly into a finish that is already semi-sweet, not requiring much in the way of hops. A big-bodied brew, dark and rich and a little heavy for my palate.
