Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

I've already written a full review of this beer; I just haven't typed up my notes. This is maybe my 10th impression of this beer, but I guess the first one I've logged:

Beet sugar. Dark fruits. Plum, dates, prunes. Caramel. Amber malts. Crystal malts, maybe. Treacley caramelized dark fruit.

Medium to full-bodied, with a great overall presence on the palate. Perfect thickness and heft. Near perfect carbonation.

High B (3.75) / GOOD

Very good, though a bit thin. Pours a nice deep mahogany with lasting top of beige foam. Aroma is malty with caramel and candi sweetness. Flavor follows very similarly, but feels like something is missing there, mostly due to the thin mouthfeel.

L: Muddy brown mahogany color, with a white foamy head that dissipates quickly.

A: Lots of dark stone fruit, cherry, blackberry, a little bit of toffee, some booze

T: Follows the aroma with a lot stone fruit, toffee, booze and almost no bitterness.

F: Nice and creamy mouthfeel pretty full body, could use a slight bit more carbonation.
