"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.

Very dark beer, with a dark brown head. Not a lot on the nose apart from sweetness and a bit of doughy yeast. Becomes a lot more interesting in the mouth; licorice and hops play a bitter-sweet tag around the full bready yeast. Lingers to a long dark bitter aftertaste. I was surprised by how nice this was, La Trappe, for me, have been a "well, if nothing better is going" brewer. But this, their dubbel, just works well.

Bottle from McHughs. Pours clearish deep wine red. Thin tan bubble head. Raisins, dark fruit, bread, little bit of clove on nose. Flavour is fruity bread, Raisins. Medium bodied with creamy mouthfeel. Nice.

Piwo miedziane, nieprzejrzyste. Piana niska, szybko znika. Estry, bananowość, wiśnie i aceton. W smaku owocowa słodowość. Pełne, wysokowysycone.

Super dejlig øl, der er god til pizza, kylling og lette retter. Bør nydes kold. Ikke speciel kraftig, og derfor drikkes af de fleste. God smag.

Bottle. Dark brown body with tan head. Aroma is roasted caramel with yeast and hintsdark chocolate. Taste is very thin with malts and hints of cafe latte. Aftertaste is also thin with caramel malts and nearly no bitterness.

Achel (141) - GREECE - JUN 25, 2015
Dark brown coffeish appearance with a handsome, creamy head. Very dry notes of roasted malt and - again - coffee. Pronounced bitterness and a touch of acid.

Schiuma eterna, odore e gusto molto pieni e amara al punto giusto, nulla da invidiare alle colleghe belghe

craighill (56) - GERMANY - JUN 20, 2015
Mahogany brown with off-white head that disappeared within a minute on this pour. Strong pear drops aroma, some spice, some crystalline sweetness. Taste adds a malt liquorice component, and emphasizes phenols. Light carbonation.

Bottle 330 ml. Strong belgian ale, but quite light in taste at the same time. Fruits in taste and aroma, not much bitterness, sweet and creamy.
