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.

Deep dark brown coloured body with a nice three centimetre tall tan head and a dark brown, ruby and violet tint when held up to a light. Aroma of malt, alcohol, pit fruits, raisins, earth, yeast and some bananas - very nice and a good blend of a dubbel and trip, with the smell favouring dubbel. Medium-bodied; Strong roasty malt flavours with a lot of pit fruits, some earth and medicinal notes and hints of light spices overlayed with sugars throughout. Aftertaste shows a strong yeast note, some alcohol, bananas again and a good pit fruit sweetness. Overall, a well-crafted beer that blends styles, but shows a nice complexity and flavour profile - great to try! I just wish this wasn’t in such a large format bottle. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 06-July-2013 for US$7.91 sampled at home in Washington on 06-September-2013.
