COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A reddish brown trappist ale, malty and fruit, featuring a 3 week secondary fermentation. This ale has a full, pale yellow head. The bouquet is full of esters and fruitiness. Notes of ripe banana predominate. The taste is fruity and slightly bitter, with a long, dry finish.

Very malty body with notes of chocolate. Finish is rough on the palate. Aftertaste lingers in an unpleasant manner. Complex but way out of balance.

I have to be honest when i say that im undewhelmed by the Westmalle beers. The dubbel was very malty with a load of chocolate, soft fruit, and a sharp alcohol bite. The finish was off though, not quite sure how but definately off...

A great beer. Can’t tell any appreciable difference in the bottle or tap version. Thre are no tours of the Abbey, but there is a cafe accross the street that is an excellent place to have a few.

I am in Belgium trying all the different Beers here and this is the best I have had yet. It is just a well rounded beer with a great taste, it has stood out of all the other trappist I have tried

leaparsons (7805) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2002
Pours with an impressive head. A smooth foamy mouthfeel adds to the experience. This hasn’t got the coffee/chocolate notes that Rochefort8 has. Nevermind - its still a great beer.

This one does nothing for me, the head is small and the aroma and flavour seem to be lacking. Next dubbel please.

Oakes (11874) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2002
Very dark, with full malty, raisiny, curranty and alcohol aromas and a mellow, smooth, but rich dark malt palate.

karsten (240) - odense, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2002
This rating is based on the exellent Westmalle Dubbel draught beer served in Carlsens Kvarter, Odense, Denmark. Fruity aroma, dark colour, it is fruity and deep in it’s flavor. Truly a magnificent trappist ale.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2007 Best before June 09. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy dark brown, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, milk chocolate, nuts, cookie), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), lightly hoppy (flowers), with light notes of raisin, plum, brown sugar, cinnamon, alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Solid but short of awesome.
