"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.

bmerz (732) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Draught at Coopers Chelsea. Rubyish brown with little head. Aroma is big bright ripe red fruit, soil, some spice, yeast. Flavor isn’t as rich but holds down with caramel sweetness, some fruit, and a healthy earthy bitterness feel is very dense with soft carbonation and a clean finish. Very classic and very nice

labeerinthum (7) - ITALY - MAY 7, 2015 does not count
Bottiglia 500ml. Fermentata in bottiglia, il gusto amaro è dato dai malti caramellati, il sentore è fruttato alla banana e il colore ai frutti rossi è dato dal lievito.

Cunningham (5325) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2015
Lovely inviting clear deep brownish color with a solid tan head. Some lacing in a typical wide trappist glass. Nice complex aroma. Dried fruits, toffee and some spices. Medium to full body. Mild round pleasant sweetness, and a quite moderate carbonation. Dried fruits, dark malt, toffee and some spices in the flavor. Complex and yet quite easy to drink. Lovely beer.
