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.

Trappist1 (646) - Diest, - 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.

mice (819) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Tummanruskea olut, hieman punertavaa mukana. Hiivapartikkeleja reilusti, leijailevat oluessa. Vaahto hyvin vaalean ruskea. Pieni kerros jää oluen pinnalle pidempään. Ei juuri pitsiä. Tuoksussa makeutta ja maltaita. Maku kermainen, karamellinen, "cappuccinomainen" häivähdyksellä kahvia ja suklaata. Suutuntuma voisi olla vielä järeämpikin. Ei isompaa jälkipuraisua. Toimiva dubbel ja yllättihän tämä positiivisesti, samoin kuin tripelkin.

probstblueribbon (3726) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
330 ml bottle at Central Bierhaus. Clear deep ruby mahogany with a thin tan head. Tight nose with some tangy fruitiness, lightly metallic, a little bread crust, faint dark dried fruit. Medium+ body with full, velvety carbonation. A like more than the nose, but still a restrained beer, a little dark dried fruit and brown sugar, a little bright fruitiness, light esters; fairly dry with low bitterness and a kinda vague malty finish. Weak.
