"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.

Rödbrun ale med vitt skum. Lätt arom av torkad frukt, dadel, hasselnötter. Fyllig sötma och rund smak av mörk kandisirap, russin och fikon. Härlig trappist.

jjsint (1957) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2016
Bottle at the Royal Standard, Cambridge. Reddish-brown, thin. Very little visible carbonation. Fruit caramel on the aroma. The malt scent is too naked for my liking, giving the scent an almost artificial note. Exceedingly sweet taste with yeast, chocolate and hazelnut notes. Slips down like a dream, the carbonation is well-judged and the alcohol is warming. Not a top top Dubbel in my book but very good.

LasseVPedersen (362) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - APR 16, 2016
Bottle, 75cl. Pours deep, dark ruby-red with huge, foamy beige head. Lots of lacing that remains stable like forever. Lovely. Intense and rich nose. Caramel malt, yeast, red fruits of ripe berries along some spices. Makes you think of candy sugar. Medium-heavy sweet fruity, caramel and yeasty flavour. Dark fruits and eastery sensation. Brown sugar and brandy. Roasted, almost burnt taste. Weak, almost no bitterness. Plesant warming alcohol in dry, long finish with dark fruits being dominant. Full bodied, medium carbonation and oily texture. Wow.

SensejPL (149) - Białystok, POLAND - APR 16, 2016
Bottle. Fruity aroma, mostly pear. Later sweet and spicy notes appear. Deep copper / brown, clear, medium and short lasting head. Medium sweet taste, caramel, fruits, no bitterness. Medium body and carbonation, Decent, but not really a beer to remember

ALIBALI (215) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - APR 10, 2016
Karamel, Vanille, Fruchtaromen drängen sich in die Nase. Toll. Und dann erst im Mund. Alles was wir aufgrund des Geruches schon wussten kommt klar und ausdefiniert zur Geltung. Der Nachhall angenehm alkoholisch und trocken. Weltklasse!!!! Free Probierschlückchen vom Hahn(2x0,1l) im CRAFT BEER SHOP HH. Bier 2/7!!!!!

W nosie drożdże, gruszki, śliwka jerozolimka, jabłka. W smaku lekki karmel, suszony banan, nieco cierpkości. Dobre wysycenie, bardzo przyjemne w ustach. Solidne piwo, belgijski klasyk.

Bottle (750ml about $12): Brown with tan head. Toasted fruit aroma. Medium or less carbonation, less than I expected. Dark fruit and toasted or burnt taste. Some sweetness.
