Dark brown colored pour. Smells yeasty and malty. A little darker than I thought it was going to be. A nice woody smell and taste. It went alright with a steak, but I could have enjoyed a bottle of wine much more with a steak than this beer. Its good, for sure. Its not the best dubbel Ive ever had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudish deep red color, average sized head with low retention and small lacing. Full body, soft carbonation. Very yeasty, malts, spices, raisins, overripe fruits, hints of alcohol. Medium to high sweetness. OK Dubbel, but not really my cup of tea.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml Bottle from The House Of Trembling Madness (York):
Sweet & complex with some dark & ripe fruits featuring plum, dates & cherries with a little raisin & sugar. Rich with some caramel malts & touches of hops too.
Mahogany brown with a 0.5cm head that’s a fine & bubbly bordering on creamy. Retention is okay but the head slowly reduces in size over the first couple of minutes, leaving a fine lacing across the surface.
Quite sweet with ripe, dark fruits; the plum & dates are here again. Rich with some spice coming through & nice malts plus good hops too. Some caramel & grapes round things off with a faint hint of alcohol as well.
Light medium in body with lively carbonation& a sweet feel that has spicy areas & a dry, smooth finish that almost seems creamy & goes down well.
Great stuff from La Trappe, a very sweet beer that was balanced out with some good spice & touches of malts which prevented the beer from seeming sickeningly sweet. A very good offering and one I’d pick up again.

An underappreciated Dutch trappist. Complex, a little nuttiness to add to the dark fruit, molasses, and brown sugar.

Bottle. Pours amber, bit hazy, to finger nut brown head. Aroma is a lot of belgian yeast, ripe fruit, banana, caramel. Taste is sweet, but too light body. And bit bald finish.

Dubbel veramente molto buona. Il fruttato e il maltato le fanno da padrona, ma č chiaramente percepibile un buon floreale, che la rende una birra molto versatile negli abbinamenti culinari.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pörkölt illatok kezdik meg a bemutatkozást, majd az első kortyok selymesen tárják fel az utat az ízlelés terepén. Amint hőfoka a szoba hőmérsékletéhez alkalmazkodni kezd, az ízek egyre jobban kibontakoznak, melyek a kávés, pörkölt karakter mellett a bor aromáját is felmutatják. Miközben lecsendesedik, az íze is egyre összeszedettebbé válik, és a kellemes, pörkölt malátás jegyeké lesz a főszerep.
