It’s been a while since my last Westmalle since it’s more of a yearly selection for the evil booze monster monopoly here in Ontario. It definitely one of my go-tos while in Belgium as it’s good and ubiquitous, thanks not those busy monks. This fella poured ALL head. A glass full actually, tortuously making me wait. The nose it full of sweet malts, sharp rich yeast, treacle, and awesome. The taste very heavy of dry hay malts, slight dried fruit, but it’s that rich, almost texturous yeast flavour of bread, rising dough, and a dry zestiness that nobody does like the Belgians. Awesome.

Dark brown color with beige head that goes down quickly. Fruity, spicy, malty, caramel, heavy. Lots of fruits. Smooth and high carbonation, but foamy mouthfeel. A good classic Dubbel. Very nice!

Beergaard (142) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2015
Dark brown color and a small, but long lasting, beige head. Aroma and taste of malt, caramel, dried fruit and some alcohol. Not as good as the trippel at all, but deffinately a very decent classic trappist.

Trappist, the best kind of beer in the world. The Dubbel is better than the Trippel, because it is less bitter. However, the Westmalle Dubbel is quite a bitter treat. It is accompanied very wel by a chunk of extra dark chocolate. The beer comes with just enough sweetness, nu neutralize the bitternes enough to not be annoying. The colour is beautiful reddish brown. The layer of foam is nice, not very thick and it disappears fast. But a thin layer of fine foam remains until the beer is finished. The finish is long and very pleasant. Especially the sweetness remains for quite some time.

Robe brune. Nez puissant sur les épices, la banane, la levure, les fruits compotés. Bouche à l’attaque moelleuse, belle bulle, fine acidité et finale équilibrée. Un belle trappiste, juste un cran en dessous de Rochefort.

Pours dark brown with a huge frothy tan head consisting of pretty big bubbles that leave a thin lacing. Rich fruity aroma of malt, sweet yeast, marzipan, ripe banana and something resembling coca cola. Full body, thick feel, soft carbonation. Taste is quite bitter and spicy with green apples, caramel and a hint of licorice. Long lasting dry finish.

Lekker bruine dubbele trappist, niet meer en niet minder. Lekkere volle smaak en een mooie fles.

Uitgeschonken in 25cl. Westmalle bokaal. Kleur is mahonie kleurig roodbruin, met beige volle roodachtige schuimkraag. De geur is een mix van gedroogd fruit, en Belgische gist. De smaak is zeer goed en complex voor een dubbel. Perfecte zoet en droog balans. Smaken van banaan, rozijnen, brood, chocolade, lichte aarde tonen en als afsluiter een verfijnde delicate hop toets. Het mondgevoel is aangenaam, met een perfecte carbonatie, en fluwelige smaak. De afdronk is zacht en aardachtig met delicate hop. De Westmalle Dubbel Trappist is een klassiek Belgisch bier, het voorbeeld van een perfecte Dubbel. Net als de Tripel een uitstekende Trappist, uniek bier in kwaliteit en smaak.
