Poured into a chalice in Leeuwarden (Netherlands)
A – A deep reddish brown in colour this beer immediately raised a fizzy head like a cola would do and like a cola it died instantly leaving zero cover in the glass and as a result no lace what so ever. There was plenty of busy carbon activity in the glass.

S –A reasonable smell of caramel and burnt toffee from this on with no hop notes at all. Some notes of plum and raisins with light stewed apricot notes and no alcohol aroma at all.

T – Sweet but mild with maybe a slight hint of liquorice up front but this is blown out of the way by plenty of plum and raisin flavour a lot of caramel and the tiniest pinch of bitter hops and a mild note of clove. This beer is reasonably complex but it is quite understated in all areas the only major drawback is the slight medicinal taste of Band-Aids but his is quite pronounced on the back end of the pallet and so the beer has to lose marks for that.

MF – Pretty smooth with a medium body feel to it. I feel it is a little oily with a slight boozy tingle.

O –A pretty mild Dubbel which is not too pronounced in its flavours this beer is still very drinkable but does loose some marks for the Band-Aid pinch in the back.

A - Raisin color with a nice creamy head that retains well.
S - Medicinal and kind of mentholated, herbal, some prune and a hint of candy sweetness.
T - Spicy with notes of clove, rum raisin, and dates. As it warms, some chocolate and vanilla.
M - Rich and creamy, but with a smooth finish.
O - Another great offering from La Trappe. I'd like to keep a bottle or two around during the colder months.
