Taking elements from two classic Belgian styles, we’ve crafted a beer that incorporates the best characteristics of both tripels and dubbels. Trubbel boasts the strength and spiciness of a tripel and the rich malt character of a dubbel. We brew this uncommon ale with a classic Belgian yeast strain, dark Belgian candi sugar, and a unique blend of specialty malts, producing subtle biscuit, chocolate, and caramel overtones. Available November through January beginning in even years only.

pours from 2014 750 ml bottle. Pours hazy reddish dark brown with a one finger tan head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of dark fruits, dark belgian candy sugar, toasted biscuit malts, caramel, sweet malts, vanilla, fruity eithers, and some light booze has it warms. Taste is dark fruits, candy belgian sugar, caramel, sweet malts, butterscotch, vanilla, molasses, lightly roasted biscuit malts, some spiciness, and light booze as it warms. Has a medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, slightly warming, long, lingering finish. Overall, a tasty, pretty complex, winter sipper that defiantly improves with age.

Fruity aromas, raisiny, red apple, light banana. Pretty clear bronze with a decently lasting off-white head. Pretty dry, slightly boozy, earthy and fruity notes create a pleasant balance. Medium bodied.

Bottle from my brother. Initial pour and aroma brings out the dubbel characteristics. Dark ruby brown with small, soft beige head. Sweet pit fruit aroma, brown sugar follows on into taste. Dubbel elements dominate, still trying to find the tripel, bits of coriander spiciness perhaps. Warmth comes on very late, mostly sweet finish.

A bit sweet but really a good effort fo pr the style. Light cola color with a slight haze it finishes well despite the sugar, lots of raisins and caramel

2013 750mL Drunk 1/26/15.
Always been a big fan of Yards, maybe not the best technical brewery and not overly adventurous with the styles brewed, but there’s just something endearing about the Philly beer scene. Not that Yards is a big player there, nor even much of a player at all. In that vein, then, you have a pretty basic strong dubbel with the dryness of some of the stronger trippels and that strength as well. The pour is fine, the nose satisfyingly phenolic, but it just comes with too much booziness and dry, peppery phenols. The nutty, somewhat scratchy malt notes do nothing to help and I’m left with but another American abbey ale, which is to say, not an abbey ale at all. Perhaps this bottle would have been better fresh? Seems like alcohol persistence is going to dominate no matter the age. The mouthfeel, as can be assumed, is quite slick and lacks the malt depth/richness to keep interest.

60minuteman (1106) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 A dark reddish-brown color. Some lace. Aroma of dark fruits, sugar, trees, malt and tons of booze. Flavor is yeast, alcohol, fruits, earth, chocolate malts. I keep thinking a log. Maybe wet leaves or something. Orgasmic wet leaves that is. Finish is boozy and sticky. Excellent feel.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Sampled on draft this beer poured a caramel-amber color with a medium sized creamy orange-tan head that left great lacing. The aroma was tart and fruity with notes of pez, citric acid and grapefruit. The flavor was tart, bit sour and fairly chalky with notes of pez, citrus, grapefruit and yeast. Pretty dry. Long finish. Medium body. Quite disappointing.
