"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.

Bouteille. Nez légèrement malté, de caramel toffee sucré, léger de mélasse et de fruits (prunes et raisins) et très léger d’alcool et de levures. Rondeur moyenne. Goût fruité (raisins, prunes) et épicé (clou de girofle) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût légèrement sucré (gomme balloune) et de caramel malté (avec des touches de noix) puis d’un goût de caramel toffee / sucre brun assez sucré avec une légère amertume d’alcool Arrière-goût légèrement aigre de fruit (prunes, raisins) et très légèrement amer et chaud d’alcool.

Bijl (93) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2016
Roodbruine kleur met matig schuim. Aroma van caramel, fruit (voornamelijk banaan), Belgische gist en gebrande mout. Smaak is zoet en fruitig. Ook duidelijk roasty caramel. Hints van banaan. Iets plakkerig en een kleine bitter op het einde. Nagenoeg geen koolzuur.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2016 Dubbel suave. Con mucho aroma. Tiene un punto de salir a regaliz. Cuerpo medio. Esta bastante bien si no fuera porque lleva jarabe de glucosa, es decir azúcar, y eso me parece trampear la cerveza.

JtanK (120) - Kraków, POLAND - MAR 3, 2016
Pours very dark brown/red with fine tan colored head. Decent retention, not much lacing. Complex malty, caramelish flavor supplemented with underlying fruitiness. Sweet, with the "bubble gum" definitely appearing in the flavor. Ends with a slightly spicy, alcoholic note (it’s pleasant and warming though). I kinda lack any more words to describe it, honestly, it’s rather hard for me to reviews beers like this one. Regarding general reaction: it’s alright, no amazement though, fairly tasty.

Fra flaske på Mi2, Cardinal feb-16: brunrød ravfarge med beige skum. Deilig og meget velbalansert aroma og smak - røde bær, gule epler og lys sjokolade. Eminent drikkbar.
