"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.

Xavalias (125) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a beautiful, mostly clear mahogany brown, ruby hue, with a big tan orange-ish head, good lacing. Aroma is very fruity, dried plums, dates, raw cane sugar, sweet caramel. Grenadine syrup pops up too. Artificial sweeteners (Assugrin) in the after taste. The taste is very smooth, contained sweetness, with just a little bit of acidity to balance. Medium bodied, oily palate with just a bit too much carbonation but a very long sweet, syrupy finish that turns into artificial sweetener, extra long. Really, really long. Definitely one of the longest finishes I’ve had. Very nice, not cloying like most Dubbels, but too much artificial sweeteners in the after taste, especially since it is so long.

wvhoran (200) - Tasmania, - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle. Amder-brown with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is fruity, caramel malt, some yeast. The flavour is sweet with a fruity profile, again a little yeast. Not the greatest dubbel.

Bottle (at Rocket Burger); pours brown with a thin khaki head; yeast aroma with dark fruit and alcohol; sweet taste with malt, caramel, dark fruits, some spices; dry finish with a hint of alcohol; nice one

La trappe dubbel is een behoorlijk stevig bier. Het heeft een lekker vol mondgevoel maar is wel erg zoet.

La Trappe Dubbel is een mooi vol biertje, heeft een goede smaak, maar wel lichtelijk zoet

mikske79 (1101) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 11, 2014
Een deftig donker bier met goed wat smaak aan zoals het hoort te zijn. Ze hebben wel betere dan dit in hun assortiment.

Very dark red, strong beige head. Sour yeasty notes on the nose. Sweet-ish with noticeable bitterness, same on finish. Fades rather fast.

spacecube (806) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2014
330ml ml bottle, pours deep red, aroma bready malt, dark fruit, blackcurrant jam, nicely balanced bitter finish. Medium body, thin texture, lively carb. Solid dubbel.

Klimaet (131) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours a semi cloudy dark brown with red hues. Slightly off white thick head. Aromas of yeast, caramel malt, raisins, booze and dark dried fruit. Taste is slightly alcoholic, pretty high carbonation, caramel, chocolate, dark sweet fruits.

Ambro206 (108) - ITALY - JUL 31, 2014
Ottima birra dubbel. Perfetta nel suo stile. Aromi di banana, vaniglia e caramello al naso. In bocca ben bilanciata, alcoolica e carbonata a dovere. Retrogusto infinito.
