COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Very Sweet in flavor. An average Belgian in every respect.

Pours a deep cloudy brown, enormous chocolate head, tons of lace, fairly large malt nose, hints of fruit, caramel. Front is malt sweet, the top medium and acidic, the finish dry, moderate carbonation, fair to middlin hop presence. VERRRRRRY Interrrresting! Beer, pretty decent I’d say Thanks JCA I bet right out the cask it must be a ’Hoot’.

Clloudy, chocolate brown appearance with a faint hop aroma. Not as complex in the 1 liter bottle as I remember the cask conditioned version. Still an nice double/triple.

Sweet and malty, without the complexity of most Belgium beers. Great try though.

A rather unique brew. a cross between a dubbel and tripel. very malty and rather sweet but still dry and subtle. available cask-conditioned - very smooth this way.

Definitely funky in a Belgian way. Has plenty of the malt sweetness of a dubbel, yet without the complexity of the best ones. It also has the dry finish, spiciness, and strength of a tripel.
