COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the small village of Meer, north of the city of Antwerp, there used to be an abbey which was famous for its beer named St. Paul. During the French Revolution, the abbey was destroyed and so it was said-one father named Paul, rescued the secret recipes to brew the abbey beer and trust them onto the local Sterkens family, at that time a renowned brewer family. The Sterkens family had been brewing beer since 1654, and their St. Paul abbey beer is still brewed today, respectfully according to the centuries old tradition.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2337) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle on sale on rakuten. It poured a dark brown, almost black but had a fizzy white head. It is a sweet and sour double, with nice malty fruitiness.

Trappist1 (560) - Diest, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2013
Gedronken in de Demervallei. Verschijning: roet zwart van kleur, beperkte schuimkraag. Neus: kruidig, gras, malty. Afdronk: heeft iets zurigs, wat CO2, prikkelend, iets pittig. Hooi, fris en gebalanceerd. Speciaal biertje, maar wel lekker.

RexTalionis (2603) - FINLAND - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours brown in color with a small tan head. A bit of nuttyness, dark ripe fruits and brown sugary sweetness in aroma. Nice so far. Even a bit of some cocoa powder in aroma. Plums and a bit of raw cocoa beans in taste. Feels quite dark, which is nice. A bit carbonated perhaps and dry, but otherwise quite nice. A bit of sweetness in finish.

Bouteille: Hazy, amber coloured, smaller persistent off-white head, sweet toasty-caramelly nose with delicate traces of chocolate; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, not too soft; slightly lingering, slightly warming sweet-fruity and malty finish. Quite nice....

Sandorf (50) - - JUL 21, 2012
Metallic cherryish (maybe yeast) sour aromas. Dark brown with a hint of red.cloudy,. An above average amount of tan foam. Slightly sour start, but a lightly bitter aftertaste will dominate. Agressive medium carbonation which won’t last, gentle but long finish of dark fruit coffee .Medium body.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 28, 2012
Bottle @ BeerBistro. Dark mahogany with a thin beige head. Aroma is intriguing, certainly sweet and fruity, but it took me a while to pin it down-- there is, without a doubt, a pronounced blueberry component to the aroma, along with burnt sugars and light chocolate. On the palate, toast and burnt sugar feature most prominently, with that same blueberry floral/perfumey fruit essence. Quite carbonated with a lively mouthfeel. Not sure what to make of this in the end. Unfortunately it was a terrible pairing with my pecan tart.

Pours ruby dark brown with a moderate off white fizzy top. Aroma is slight raisin, fruit and dark malt. Taste is nicely carbonated, slight purple fruit and candy sugar.
