"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.

My favourite beer. Nice soft, sweet brown beer with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Perfect with traditional food, or on a rainy autumn afternoon.

If you see the Trappist Brothers from the Abbey of Koningshoeven, send them my regards. This Dubbel rocks!

I dont know what to say...I dont think I am supposed to rate this beer this high, but after drinking it, I could not help but make it my number one beer. It had a pleasant spice aroma with lace that clung to the glass as I drank each sip. The sweet fruits hung around my toungue and made me crave another sip. I found nothing wrong with this beer, I want another!

I tried this beer on May 9, 2008 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario on tap. The beer was a beautiful dark brown with some plum coloured hints and a thin, rocky, tan coloured head. The aroma was sweet malt, with some yeasty tones, as well as chocolate and cherry hints. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, mildly carbonated, and slightly creamy. The flavour was caramel malt, some other fruit flavours like cherries and plum, and a little hoppish bitterness to round it out. I loved this beer.

Very active aroma with a charcoal traces. Good lasting head and a really nice color. The taste is present for quite a while and is bitter, sour and a little salty. Has a oily texture and a lively carbonation. You can feel a metallic taste in your mouth.

Unique tasting Trappist, the only of it’s kind of Dutch origin. The smoothest and sweetest of all Trappists, yet still packing enough character and dubbel ’oomph’. My favourite, most of the time... Change with a regular pils or a Westmalle Dubbel in between to keep your palate appreciating it’s sweet strength ;)

Cette trappiste est bel et bien bâtie. Elle est d abord d un beau rouge-brun foncé à la mousse fine comme on s y attend. Au goût les notes sucrées de fruits type cerises noires et cassis se mélangent à des notes plus automnales de figues, pruneaux et boisées. L alcool tient en longueur ces belles notes sans en déborder ni exagérer, bel équilibre. En fait je préfère presque la double à la quadruple. Je mettrai juste un bémol pour l originalité qui suit très (trop) bien la recette trappiste.

This is really a remarkable beer from the Netherlands, most of the time this kinda quality beer can only be found in Belgium. Great balance of sweet heaviness. They really came close to match some of my favorite beers like Grimbergen/Affligem. It’s not as good though, but almost perfect!

Pours murky brown with small yellow fizz. Smells of dark fruits, yeasty, earthy, and malty. Tastes sweet malted, a bit like dark fruits, very little bitterness. Full-bodied with a smooth, slick texture and average mouth-carbonation, Koningshoeven Dubbel finishes surprisingly fruity, but it doesn’t linger for long.
