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.

Bottle gifted by Leafs93. Wow. Again impressed by this young brewery. Pours a cloudy brown color with a caramel colored head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, and Belgian spice. Sweet caramel taste, with chocolate notes and Belgian spice. This mix works very well. Love it.

jb (2302) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pretty decent - bottle from Wegs in State College. Pretty much a standard dubbel in taste and characteristics, dark, sweet, malty, a bit of yeasty action in the nose and palate gives it an edge. But somehow they stuck a bit more alcohol in there, totally undetectable, a bit more than a dubbel. Well done.

Pours dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma has some sweet dark fruit...fig, raisin, and some spicy/yeasty notes. Flavor is sweet and figgy...light earthy/roastiness. Mouthfeel is light/medium...a bit thin...with a slightly dry earthy/malty finish.

dagimp (743) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2013
From a capped 750 into. a Duvel tulip. Pours a dark brown with some serious off white head. Earthy, dirty aroma with sweet plums,dates and yeast. Mouthfeel is moderate and slightly slick with a good dose of carbonation. Taste is pretty Belgian with dark fruit, spices, molasses, water, minerals and moss. But it's too light. The flavor is muted for what I'd expect from this type of beer. Ok but I wouldn't really buy again if given the opportunity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ryanscourt (798) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Black/dark brown, nice lacing. Strong malty and fruity aroma. Flavor is follows sweet. Really like the nice fruity flavors. Nice mouth fill, with low carbonation. Didn’t really notice the trippel spiciness, but the large dubble malt body is there. Alcohol is apparent as well but blends in nicely. Aftertaste is pleasant as smooth, Apparently only comes out every couple years. Best one ive tried from yards.

gripweed57 (771) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2013
750 ml bottle. Translucent dark brown with a reddish hue. Large creamy tan head. Yeasty toasted malt aroma with notes of brown sugar, cocoa and dark fruits. Flavor upfront is roasted malt, cocoa, banana and dark caramel. Chewy dark malt flavor comes through with more dark fruit and spicy hops. Finish is bittersweet and dry. Although it has hints of Belgian style, it is more an American dark ale. Very good none the less.
