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.

RexTalionis (3522) - 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 (9611) - 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.

Sweetened honey taste. Light carbonation. Body is medium, tracing is pretty good - rocks the beer glass fractals. I taste caramel as well. BOttle at The Rhino.
