"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.

Lawger (176) - SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2015
Pours a dark brown with big head. Rather big nose for a double. Malty, toffee, herbs, spices, a hint of boose, funk and belgo yeast. Medium+ bodied palate, balanced and complex with medium+ finish. Superior to the Chimay Rouge I had earlier. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

30.8.2014. Sweet, slightly syrupy. Taste has caramel sweetness, some spices and yeast. Too simple and straightforward.

Leighton (12985) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Ales by Mail. Pours clear amber with a large, dense and frothy beige head. Lovely aroma, lots of candied fruits, brown bread, toffee, Belgian yeast. Medium sweet flavor with rich bready malts, caramel and toffee, ripe semi-dark fruits, dates, slight toasted grains and butterscotch. Medium bodied with average to lively carbonation. Rather nicely balanced on the finish with toasted candi sugars, understated Belgian yeast, bready malts, slight alcohol warmth, ripening fruits, caramel. An excellent example of the style. So rich yet so drinkable.

300ml Flasche. Rotbraun und leicht trüb. Kleine Schaumkrone. Sehr würziges Karamellaroma. Voller, süsslicher Geschmack.

Een doorsnee dubbel bier, niet slecht maar ook niet bijzonder. Er zit een typisch smaakje aan dat ook aan het bokbier van Bavaria zit.

ippopotamo36 (509) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 15, 2015
0,33 bottle purchased at Beerville store in Belgrade and consumed in Pozarevac-Serbia pairing a carbonade stew. Ciao Vlada. Pours filtered caramel color, ruby with a medium-high ivory cap. Nose: caramelized malts, prunes, chocolate. Mouth: a weird bitter overall palate in a general environment of roasted malts, brown sugar and a hint of caramel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark ruby with medium beige head that lasts. Awesome aroma of malts, peach, raisins, honey, spicy and fruity. Taste is fruity, sweet, reminds me caramel biscuits. Full body and awesome creamy texture.
