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.

janubio (770) - SPAIN - JUL 20, 2015
Dark brown colour, with red relections to the light. Small off white head taht leaves ring and lace. Aroma of dark fruits, raisins, cloves, coriander,, chocolate. Medium body and carbonation, I would like a thicker palate on this one. Taste of cloves, raisins, chocolate, sweet but a touch of bitterness. Good, but it could be a bit soft.

Bire double refermente, que le brasseur qualifie la fois dabbaye et de spciale. Elle titre 6,9% abv. Mon exemplaire date en septembre 15 tait encore dans les bouteilles classiques, et non celles bascule comme sur le site. Couleur brun roux magnifique. Clart nette. Bulles fines partout. Mousse beige bien constitue, qui reste en nappage. Armes de malt cara, candi, cassonade, miel dacacia, pointe de caf doux. 1re bouche structure douce sur du caramel, caf, pointe de chicore. Arrire-bouche malte sucre, qui rappelle les bires de table de lenfance. 2me la trs belle structure malt et cassonade. Arrire-bouche douce comme un duvet de canard. 3me avec la douceur dun malt lgrement torrfi. Arrire-bouche agrable. La longueur reste sur la tonalit, certes sans complexit, mais avec un agrment constant. Les jambes sont marques, longues. La levure est de caractre, un peu muscade. Lalcool est bien pour le genre, bon soutien dans lensemble. La finale est de texture douce. CONCLUSION: une bire pleine de souvenir denfance, qui est simple, mais dveloppe cette simplicit avec beaucoup de got. Bire loppos dune bire savante, mais nanmoins trs belle. La beaut est parfois dans la simplicit ...
