"Discover this genuine dark Trappist beer with a gentle flavour, creamy head and pronounced bouquet.
La Trappe Dubbel has a deep brown colour and attractive beige froth. The use of caramel malt gives it a gentle aromatic caramelised quality. It has a rich malty flavour with a touch of sweetness. Post-fermenting La Trappe Dubbel is a smooth drink, and yet has some real body and intense flavour to it.

On tap at Beer Bistro. It pours a beautiful ruby red, wonderful ripe fruit aftertaste, with a clean smooth finish. Essential that it is served in a trappist glass to experience the aroma.

Pours a very attractive dark amber with a creamy, fading head. Sadly, there is very little on the nose. Thankfully it more than makes up for it in the mouth! Creamy, rich, but not too heavy mouth feel. The taste is vanilla, brown suger, baked apple and caramel. A very tasty drop

Looks very good, nice brown color. Taste was less fruity and fresh than La Trappe Quadruple but still good.

Has virtually no nose and the flavor is very bland. Hopefully I just got a bad bottle.

11.2 ounce bottle - $4.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Its been a good five years since Ive last had a La Trappe, so lets see how theyre doing these days! I vaguely recall either a 3 of 4-pack with a glass (that later broke). So many misty, watercolored memories! Appearance: Pours a dark brownish-red, almost antique brick-hued body with a frothy, though somewhat short-lived, light beige head. Smell: Dark malts and dark fruits tossed around in, appropriately enough, some dark syrup. Notes of dark sliced bread slathered in dark caramel and splashed with a bit of good, clean alcohol. Taste: Dark, noticeably bready malts with a sweet, hearty brushing of both dark caramel and Dutch stroop. Meager hint of simple chocolate. Fruity mixture of dates, Concord grapes, and figs. Some woody hints along with a spicy dusting of finely ground pepper. A bit of alcohol heat on the semi-sweet, fruity, spicy finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-high carbonation. Drinkability: Paired well with the 1920 silent film "The Parsons Widow" directed by Carl Th. Dreyer. Still though, its not exactly the best Belgian Dubbel on the block, as its beaten out just barely, at least for me, by both the Rochefort 6 and Chimay Red.

Bottle. Another one I have enjoyed many times. I had it this time out of the crock. Dark amber brown colour with frothy beige head. Sweet caramal, cinnamon, dark fruits, wood and yeast.

750ml Bottle: Aroma of yeast, slight caramel, slight candi sugar, and slight malts. Poured deep orange/deep amber/brown/caramel in color with a large, beige head that diminished but lasted throughout. Slightly cloudy. Sparkling. Full of minuscule particles throughout. Flavor is medium to heavily sweet. Tastes of dark ripe fruits, caramel, slight tobacco, malts, candi sugar, slight wood, and slight yeast. Medium body. Moderately dry, slightly sticky texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, dark ripe fruit, caramel, and slight yeast finish.

Head dissappeard quickly, but that might have been my glass. Foam was a nice brown. Smells sweeter than it actually is. I tasted whole wheat bread in the middle of my mouth. Taste lingers for a while. Nice
