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.

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2004
Decent malty aroma, caramel and sweet. One dimensional. Hazy dark brown with floating chunks. Thin light tan lacing head. Medium-light body with light carbonation. Mild sweet start, mild acidity. Weak fruitiness, light astringency. Some alcohol. Weak watery dubbel.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2004
Bottled. A deep russet brown beer with loads (too much) sediment. Lots of fruits and malts in the aroma. Taste of sweet berry fruit, raisins, candy sugar, yeast and burnt malts. Disappointingly thin

rauchbier (3872) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2004
Bottle, DBF 2004. Bronze, moderate off white head and gentle condition. Caramel and malt in the nose, sweet in the mouth with the caramel and malt again dominant. Some butteriness develops into the finish.

jercraigs (10302) - 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. Castros 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 (7026) - 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 (5727) - 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 (1251) - Misawa, JAPAN - 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.
