La Trappe Dubbel (Koningshoeven / Dominus)

This drinks bigger than it’s ABV, with a distinct alcohol presence and lots of dark fruit in the nose and in the initial tastes.

Dark brown pour with a scant head, but a substantial looking beer. I was quite surpised by the level of carbonation – really quite aggressive.

Solid malt backbone, but the finish was a little on the dry side for my liking. Good fruits all the way through with a full mouthfeel. Lots of ripe, bursting type fruits are present which adds to the palate sensation.

Solid example, nice Belgian and excellent value in the four-pack sampler with glass.
