Details

There are only 10 Trappist breweries in the world: six in Belgium, 1 in the USA, 1 in Austria, and 2 in the Netherlands-including the Brewery de Koningshoeven and home of La Trappe. The friars handed over production to commercial brewers in the middle of the last century but retook control and began making Trappist style beers in 1980. It goes without saying that only natural ingredients are used in the production according to a recipe developed by the monks which utilises water from its own source.

Another world-class beer to come out of De Koningshoeven Brewery in the Netherlands, the La Trappe Dubbel is a genuine Trappist ale. Soft, refined and smooth, this Dubbel-style ale is bottle-conditioned which only adds to its fine complexity—especially over time.

This beer pours a deep brown colour with a frothy beige head. Rich malty flavours and notes of bready malts, figs, raisins, chocolate and a restrained spiciness complement its creamy mouthfeel. A nicely integrated alcohol warmth adds an extra layer of complexity to the excellent La Trappe Dubbel. This is a stunner.

A lovely beer, I don't normally pick the darker beers but I have to say this is very easy to drink and smooth. Has a slight chocolate taste too!

A dark malty beer with undertones of caramel and fruity spiciness. Enjoy like a good wine.
