"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.

Very sweet overall. Some nice dark fruits and dried cherries. Earthy and yeasty.

Without that strong aroma that Belgian Trappists have, this beer has a bit of a sweetness to it. It is softer than Belgians. Good, but not my favorite Trappist.

RSRIZZO (1972) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Had on 7/29/2007. Labeled as Koningshoeven. Aroma is a spicy scent with a nice sweet caramel back tone. Color is a rich amber with very good carbonation and a thick tight head. Taste is light yet sweet. Starting with a light/medium body it goes down smooth with a fluffy feel. Finish comes on with easy sweet malt flavor that has good tones of Belgian yeast, then a gentle bitterness that leads to a somewhat dry yet mildly sweet end and after taste. This is not the best Dubbel I have had but still a beautiful beer.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2007
Nose of malt, bread and dates. Pours a nice reddish brown/mahogany translucent beer. Decent carbonation. Mouthfeel is soft, sticky and malty. Taste is sweet with notes of fruits and malt dominant. Nicely spiced. Taste finishes with a roastedness and some alcohol intrusion. A good beer.

Cerveja trapista - minha primeira. Colorao rubro escura, quase preta. Espuma densa, caramelo. Cheiro caramelizado, suave - bom. Gaseificada. Retrogosto amargo. Sabor caramelo gostoso.

Bottle @ Gollem, Amsterdam. Reddish brown color. Rather weak in the body as weel as taste. Bit watery. Aromas are all there but just lacking.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - SEP 25, 2007
Nice looking opaque chestnut with a good cream head, leaves good lacing. Smells like dough with some sweet citrus thrown in. Flavors arent as rich as other dubbels, and the body is a bit too thin as well. Nice balance, but nothing really good going for it besides a nice appearance.

Well lookie here. I found me a "La Trappe" dubbel. My understanding is that the La Trappe is the old label of what is now the Koningshoeven line. Either way...onward! Pours an extemely dark ruby brown with minimal head after a minute. The nose smells like my mothers chocolate chip cookies. Touch of cherries. Sugar is there, but that is part of mommas chocolate chip cookies. Malty subdued flavor that has a caramelized sugar edge to it. Seems to be lacjing something. Perhaps this bottle is beyond its life. Feel is thin to standard. Not all the way bubbly, but still seems to be missing something. Drinkable I guess. I am wondering if this bottle is too old.

BritAlesRule (216) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2007
Dark sour appple with a bit of bite in the nose. Taste is similar but acidic and jumps on the tongue. Sticky medium-full palate. Minor underlying alcohol throughout did not distract. Very good beer.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Deep ruddy brown, dark and hard to see through. Sweet pruney malt. Dark malt, but not roasty and barely any chocolate. A bit of astringency? Creamy soft relatively highly carbonated a bit thicker than average. Roast comes out in the flavor more. Pruney swetness. Diacetyl, a bit of alcohol, a bit of acidity. Lingering prunes and roasty astringency. Not great, but okay.
