"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.

Ruby/dark cherry corlo w/big head and nice lacing. Big raisins, figs, cherries and plums on the nose. Taste is cherries, figs and malty sweetness. Tasty

Cloudish deep red color, average sized head with low retention and small lacing. Full body, soft carbonation. Very yeasty, malts, spices, raisins, overripe fruits, hints of alcohol. Medium to high sweetness. OK Dubbel, but not really my cup of tea.

Bottle - pours ruby red with a fizzy light brown head which quickly fades to a ring. Aroma of light roasted malt, chocolate, cloves and some hints of banana. Taste is spicy, light roasted malt, cocoa, cloves with some hints of liquorice. Medium sweetness, medium body and high carbonation.

330ml Bottle from The House Of Trembling Madness (York):
Sweet & complex with some dark & ripe fruits featuring plum, dates & cherries with a little raisin & sugar. Rich with some caramel malts & touches of hops too.
Mahogany brown with a 0.5cm head that’s a fine & bubbly bordering on creamy. Retention is okay but the head slowly reduces in size over the first couple of minutes, leaving a fine lacing across the surface.
Quite sweet with ripe, dark fruits; the plum & dates are here again. Rich with some spice coming through & nice malts plus good hops too. Some caramel & grapes round things off with a faint hint of alcohol as well.
Light medium in body with lively carbonation& a sweet feel that has spicy areas & a dry, smooth finish that almost seems creamy & goes down well.

Great stuff from La Trappe, a very sweet beer that was balanced out with some good spice & touches of malts which prevented the beer from seeming sickeningly sweet. A very good offering and one I’d pick up again.

An underappreciated Dutch trappist. Complex, a little nuttiness to add to the dark fruit, molasses, and brown sugar.

Bottle from old backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel, brown suga, raisins, stone fruit, yeast, some sspices, better than the Blonde.

Bottle. Pours amber, bit hazy, to finger nut brown head. Aroma is a lot of belgian yeast, ripe fruit, banana, caramel. Taste is sweet, but too light body. And bit bald finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dubbel veramente molto buona. Il fruttato e il maltato le fanno da padrona, ma č chiaramente percepibile un buon floreale, che la rende una birra molto versatile negli abbinamenti culinari.

750 ml bottle. Pours dark amber with tall, long-lasting, foamy off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bready malt, caramel, ripe cherries, apples and yeast. Body is full, creamy and spicy. Spicy yeast, caramel malt, bread crust, plums, raisins, brown sugar fill the mouth. Finish is long, spicy, semi-sweet. Extremely delicious brew.

adster (120) - HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2014
Pörkölt illatok kezdik meg a bemutatkozást, majd az első kortyok selymesen tárják fel az utat az ízlelés terepén. Amint hőfoka a szoba hőmérsékletéhez alkalmazkodni kezd, az ízek egyre jobban kibontakoznak, melyek a kávés, pörkölt karakter mellett a bor aromáját is felmutatják. Miközben lecsendesedik, az íze is egyre összeszedettebbé válik, és a kellemes, pörkölt malátás jegyeké lesz a főszerep.
