La Trappe Dubbel (330ml Bottle)
An authentic Trappist beer with a deep red-brown colour. Through the use of a. o. caramel malt, it has a soft aromatic, caramel-like character. A little bit sweet in taste with a fresh aftertaste.
Pours very dark with a nice red hue and a big three finger light brown head, good lacing. Smells of cloves and spicy apples and malt. Tastes of cloves and hops with a mild bitter almost toasty finish. Very silky mouthfeel and very drinkable.
These are dark, malty, yeasty strong ales in the Trappist tradition, but produced (mainly) by secular brewers. Dubbels range between 6.5-8% abv, and have a dark brown, cloudy colour, and a palate mixing malt, a lush fruitiness, and yeast. They are typically bottle-conditioned.
