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.

Ungstrup (36448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2004
An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma is primarily sweet with some sour notes - is it the yeast? The flavor is very thin, but what is there is sweet malty with notes of caramel and bread with hints of the alcohol.

omhper (24624) - Tyres, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2008
Bottled. Cloudy dark brown, small beige head. Caramelly nose. Sweet and lightly grassy with spritzy rounded mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Dominted by caramel but with obvious almondy yeast character and notes of orange. Some late resiny bitterness. Not the most remarkable Belgian ale.

Leighton (20548) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, ruby-brown with a vivacious, khaki head. Lovely aroma, some candied fruits, light toffee, sweet bread. The flavor doesnt quite match the nose. Medium sweet flavor, quite fruity, with the malty-toffee character taking a backseat. There is a strong, rather unpleasant medicinal booziness in here. Also some toasty malts. Medium bodied, warm, with fine to average carbonation. Warm finish, modestly sweet with boozy fruits, light toasted malts, faint leafy hops. After an auspicious beginning this beer falters.

Hazy deep amber color; beautiful lace. Nice aroma of malt and caramel and roasted grains, well mixed. Dry malt taste, roasted (Scottish Ale), not enough body. Average palate, with some roasted malt and caramel, missing a sharper bitterness.
