"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.

330ml bottle. Pours a dark, murky copper with a creamy light brown head. Aroma is of spices, banana, caramel and yeast, with its alcohol content evident but not overwhelming. Sweet taste with a hint of bitterness. Smooth body and adequate carbonation; overall an extremely well-made, enjoyable beer.
