COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The St. Paul Double is a strong, dark abbey beer with secondary fermentation in the bottle. Thanks to the dryhopping technique, which adds hops after fermentation, it has a rich and distinct sweet aroma of roasted malt. Full-bodied and a rich and complex flavour in a combination of sweet and bitter. In addition, the double has a soft, subtle aftertaste.

jercraigs (9447) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2010 2010-02-12. Very dark brown body with a nice tan head and lace. Aroma and flavour are both quite fruity, with a light tangy not to it. Muted hint of chestnuts and cocoa in the nose. Flavour is similar with sweet sugary dark malts, tangy fruit accents and a dry fruity finish. Average plus to medium bodied palate is well carbonated. Pleasant. 7/4/7/3/14 - 3.5Bottle at Smokeless Joes, Toronto

2004-07-XX. Bottle. Castro’s Lounge. Dark brown body with a thin head. Mouthfeel is very light for the style. Aroma is sweet malt with a hint of alcohol. Flavour is a bit watery, bit of sweet malt, and more alcoholic notes than it should really be showing. Pretty boring Belgian. 5/3/5/2/10 - 2.5

caesar (6419) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2004
Clear dark red brown color, short off-white head. Aroma is malty, bit fruity, sweet alcoholic. Sweet taste, quite alcoholic, especially for a 6.9% beer. Sticky palate. Ok brew, but far from impressive.

skortila (5132) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2004
Indeed a nice double. Nothing special though. Aroma is malty-sweetish, fruity, some yeast and a hint of honey and alcohol. Clear, dark red/brown coloured with a lasting thin head. Taste is sweet, smooth malty with an alcoholic dosis, fruity. Fresh, thin.

IslandHaole (1215) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - MAY 8, 2004
A dark brown color with magenta hues. A large foamy beige head. A malty nose with pepper and yeast. A bit thin in the body, alcohol well masked. A bit of a syrupy finish but sour bite somewhat balances it.

madsberg (11283) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2004
Bottled: Ruby red coloured. Yeastremnants swimming around in the glass when pouring. Beige long lasting dense head. Yeast, fruit and a heavy alcahol note in the aroma. Flavour has notes of plums and prunes and the alcahol is not too well hidden. Some notes of cocoa/chocolate. Is a little vague in the end. Easy drinkable and easy forgettable beer.
