Poured into my westmalle chalice-a dark reddish brown with a small ,quickly dissappearing head.The aroma is malty and slightly sweet,but the flavor is rather bland compared to other trappist beers.This is an ok beer,not the best.

Pours a dark brown with red when held to the light with a medium light tan head with small bubbles. Lots of carbonation when opened and first poured. Great lacing down the sides of the glass. Head sustained but got a good bit smaller. Aroma is very fruity, dark fruits, toffee, sweet and very nice. Flavor was very yeasty at first, kind of covered up the dark fruits. A bit of a roasted malt coming through as well. Some nuttiness coming in the flavor also. Very carbonated on the tongue. Really was looking for more in the flavor since I enjoyed the aroma so much. Still a very solid beer...just couldn’t rate the flavor as high as the aroma.

Creamy, fluffy, light brown/red head.. It pours light brown, but in the glass the body becomes dark red and slightly unclear. Flavor is just great. Very sweet dark fruit, but also very dry which compensates for that. Overall very smooth drinking,,, Very nice long dry bitter finish. I had this one several times.. it is my absolute favorite for now.

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange-brown with beige head. The aroma is like sweet berries, with some wood and malt, and a little bit of a vinous quality. The flavor is also reminiscent of sweet berries, with some creamy caramel notes, some baking chocolate, and even a hint of dark roasted coffee. The finish is both sweet and ashy and trails off to a kind of burnt wood bitterness. Solid.

Westmalle Dubbel is a true classic--a lovely combination of malty depth, spicy flavor, and exquisite packaging, be it the collared duck-pin bottle or the simple trademark chalice. Westmalle’s frightfully expensive in the US, but is worth it once in a while... Ommegang is not a bad substitute though.

I’ve had this many times, but have just gotten around to rate it. I had a cold, so some of the aromas probablydid not come through as strong. Heavy malt with some sweet dough. Also, a good hint of cherry. Creamy head that completely went away. Brown, with some tiny particles. I poured the whole bottle.Good, dubbel, right on style.

This beer introduces itself with a hearty aroma consisting of yeast, malt, and wheat. It is a dark brown solution with a thick light brown head that leaves thick lacing behind. This beer has a bitter nutty taste that is mildly fruity/earthy. The flavors of wheat, yeast, and caramel can be detected. A subtle nutty raisin taste lingers after the beer has been swallowed.

Very nice beer. Huge and long lasting head. Reddish brown colour. Notes of caramel, dried fruit and banana in the nose. Taste sweet with caramel and malts.

There’s remarkably little going on with this beer. There is an unusual bitterness here but the taste is mostly cardboard. Quite average.
