"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.

Bottled. Not a headknocker, but pleasant enough. Cream colored head itself has nice, spicy, candy taste. Nice brown beer with orange highlights, shows bubbles drifting up as sediment settles down. Taste brings out oranges, raisins, a bit of wine and light spiciness, on a well-warmed, rather that roasted, malt base. Comes off like a fresh barley wine. May not be the very best of its kind, but darn close, and its alcohol warmth makes a nice way to break a Lenten abstinence of over a month (and circumstances kept me away from home where I had a store of actual Trappist ales to enjoy on Easter. This was a good substitute).

Fiston (8) - Cressier, SWITZERLAND - OCT 2, 2015 does not count
The aroma is strong and malty. Red dark color. Generous head. Maybe surprisingly strong carbonation for a belgian beer but the equilibrated taste is nice. Caramel, honey malty taste. Full body but not too heavy, Sweet on the palate with long finish. Ready to drink one more!

Tognetta (440) - Campinas, BRAZIL - OCT 2, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2015 Marrom escuro, espuma bege de média formação e persistência (copo inadequado). Aroma bastante frutado, uva passa, cereja, amora, framboesa, adocicada, muito atraente. Paladar segue o aroma, evidenciando mais o malte, dulçor médio. Corpo denso, baixa carbonatação. Aftertatse duradouro, cremoso, adocicado, muito boa !

Out of all the La Trappe beers so far, my least favorite. Although it has a dark and complex taste, it simple doesn’t do it for me.

Ganske god Dubbel, ikke helt oppe at ringe. Savner lidt fylde. Meget mørk, flot skum.

rgf001 (242) - München, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2015
Thinner palate than Westmalle and not as complex aromas or flavors. Aromas of caramel, toast, spicy phenols and belgian banana esters. Flavors of spicy belgian yeast, ripe banana, raisin. Carbonation not as high as other belgians. Finish is not completely dry, leaving a bit of sugary coating.
