"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.

On tap at Radagast Biergarten, Brooklyn. Pours dense but not jazy chocolate color with a trace head. Big, sweet caramel aroma. Full cherry, chocolate and raisin flavor with a long, sweet tail. Body is full with almost no carbonation. Overall I’m not a fan of sweet beers, so it’s not a fav.

Bonne bière. Mousseuse en bouche, peu d’amertume, sucre léger. Bien fait, rond et assez long en bouche. Bonne double traditionnelle.

Mój ulubiony Dubbel. Najlepiej smakuje w ogrodach holenderskiego klasztoru. Piwo delikatnie pieści podniebienie. My favorite Dubbel. It tastes best in the gardens of the Dutch monastery. Beer gently caresses the palate.

75 Dark brown with a small head of foam that lasts. Caramel malt, dark fruit, bit of cardboard smell. Tastes of pitted fruit, yeast, caramel malt and cardboard. Love the dark fruitiness of raisins and plums. Not a fan of cardboard/oxidation. That being said, I reckon this Dubbel is a good one.

Color: Tono caoba con una capa de espuma color marfil. Aroma: Aroma afrutado con tonos cálidos de vainilla, caramelo y chocolate tostado. Sabor: La Trappe Dubbel es una cerveza trapense clásica de tono oscuro y sabor intenso a cebada y caramelo, con sutiles matices dulces de dátiles, miel y frutas deshidratadas. Regusto: Dulce y ligeramente amargo.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
