look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I had this on-tap in a snifter at Special Brews in Lynnwood, WA.

Appearance: dark amber hue with a moderate haze and a thick head of creamy dark-ivory foam. Very attractive indeed.

Smell: rich dark-fruit aromas of plum, raisin and date, along with an enticingly musty tobacco aroma. Definitely something I want more of.

Taste: not quite as rich as the aroma, but quite good indeed. Dark fruits are a bit more subdued, but in exchange we get a delicious toffee character. A little biscuity, but overall very damn tasty.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and creaminess. Great.

Overall: dubbel isn't necessarily my style, but La Trappe might be my favorite dubbel among them.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A:
Pours a cloudy golden-amber-brown with a tiny wisp of bubbly head that almost immediately settles to a messy ring around the glass. Terrible retention; no lacing.

S:
Musky and fruity. Cherries, spicy phenols, leather, wood, licorice.

T:
Dark and sweet. A rich, vaguely winey flavor up front, yields to dark fruit, a little alcohol sourness, wood, and a mysteriously quick, dry finish.

M:
Thin and bubbly. Light-medium bodied with a dry, aromatic finish.

O:
Meh dubbel.
I felt like this one was just a little less 'big' than I would have liked. Terrible looking, it is saved by a pretty pleasant nose that is very spicy and woodsy. Taste-wise it is obviously a European dubbel and I feel like it has a very nice yeasty character; but it is pretty light and definitely nothing earth-shattering.
Won't have again; have a Westmalle or some Rochefort instead ; )
