"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).

Delft 24-11-2015 (Mitra) Dubbel bier. Wat meteen opvalt is enorm hoge koolzuurgehalte. Prikkelt bij de eerste slokken echt enorm lang na op de tong. Maakt hem bijzonder maar na een tijdje verdwijnt dit en dan blijft er weinig bijzonders over. Heeft wat weg van rode wijn/rood fruit. Licht bittere nasmaak die lang blijft hangen.

jawlo (242) - Katowice, POLAND - NOV 14, 2015
Aromat: przyjemny, dojrzałe słodkie banany, tosty, karmel, delikatnie przyprawowe. Wygląd: barwa ciemno bursztynowa, piana na początku potężna, później opada. Smak: słodkie banany połączone z karmelem i tostami, w tle delikatne przyprawy, goryczka niska, brak alkoholu. Tekstura: średnio pełne, wyscenie umiarkowane. Ogólne wrażenie: smaczne piwo, fajny aromat, mimo słodowego charakteru piwo nie jest ani zalepiające ani mdłe, dość pijalne. Na plus należy zaliczyć doskonale ukryty alkohol.

33cl @ bottle. Dubbel scura, aroma un po’ debole, forse troppo alcol in evidenza ma comunque ottima birra trappista.

Een zwaar dubbel bier, zeer traag te drinken. Weinig schuimkraag, een zeer donkere kleur.
