"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).

Really good, well balanced trappist, my bottle has also aged very nicely. Smooth and quite easy, still really enjoyable.

Sampled from bottle @ Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Pretty standard abbey dubbel: dark brown colour, decent head, smell and taste malts, some caramel and sweetness. Average to medium body and carbonation. Nice trappist brew.

[Bottle] Brown pour is nearly clear. Only a small amount of white head. Yeasty nose mixes with sweet rolls and dough. Sweet caramel and biscuit taste. Fainter notes of clove and light brown sugar. A classic beer.

Cerveza trapense holandesa. Color marrón oscuro con capa de espuma muy ligera beige. Olor bastante afrutado. Sabor malteado a caramelo y regusto a frutos rojos. Amargor suave al principio dejándose notar al final.
