Strange. Red-auburn, thin lacing. Nose is sweet, candy sugars and green raisins, an odd tinge of soap. Soapiness continues in the flavor. Is malty and sugary, with plums and some chocolate. Harsh and somewhat astringent, finish is peppery and tingly-spicy. Picks up a slight clove-banana character as it warms, but some less than exceptional things are happening here. Kinds of tastes to me like somebody added dish soap and gravel to Corsendonk Abbey Brown Ale.

This beer was very good to start, but the more I drank, the less I liked it. I'm not sure why, because it really wasn't a bad beer. Who knows. Worth a try.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A murky brown color on the pour, the head modest, the texture frothy, with the residual lace a fine sheet. Caramel, sweet malt and a hint of yeast, quite pleasurable actually, sweet start, top middling in its feel to the palate. Strong acidic finish, hops purposeful in their spicy bite, droughty aftertaste and a good beer, like it better than the triple.

This one was surprising. After 2 other St. Paul's I didn't have the nerve to drink another one for 4 years. But this turned out to be very nice. Nice chocolat aroma. Redish brown color, light brown head, good lace. Strong chocolat flavors, light sweet, medium body, some roastiness. Long lasting light bitter and chocolat finish.
