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.

A really nice dark beer with a strong opening taste which slowly transforms into a soft nice taste.

Caramel, brown sugar, fruits and some yeast and spices in the aroma. Brown with a off-white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average to soft carbonation. Overall quite nice, but for me a tiny bit to thin and the alcohol slightly to present in the flavor.

330ml bottle from Masuyo’s Liquors in Asagaya. Poured into a stemmed tulip. Pours a deep mahogany brown with a huge soapy beige head. Dark fruit, fig, malt and past-ripe bananas on the nose. Bitterness from hops present on the palate and tart apple crispness is also present. Full body, with a rich thick mouthfeel. Nice lingering dry finish.

Muddy brown with thin head. Aroma is pungent dates, toffee, dough. Taste is similarly fruity, especially as it warms up in the mouth. Relatively dry as dubbels go. Bubbly. Bit of spiciness on the finish. Don’t drink too cold.

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!

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.

Dejlig øl. God og fyldig smag. Jeg glæder mig til den næste Westmalle Dubbel.
