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.

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.

Draft at craft ale house. Pours pitch black with a small off white head. The aroma has banana, dark fruit, brown sugar, and a little booze. The taste is chocolate, banana, raisin, fig. Pretty nice.

This is the best brew I have ever had by Yards. Pours deep red, almost purple in color. Aroma is sweet candy yeast and malts. Taste is chocolaty, yet fruity. Very smooth on palate, sticky finish with slight alcohol burn.

Appears nearly black in glass, small, tan head with some nice lace. Tastes like chocolate covered bananas, coffee, and malt. Really solid. After taste lingers pleasantly.

ben4321 (5688) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Location: Bomber from Buy Rite, 1/22/13

Aroma: A fairly sweet nose, with brown sugar, chocolate, Belgian yeast, spice, and some dark fruit
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a foamy, lasting, brown head that leaves heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is mid-heavy sweet, with quite a bit of spice as well, and some nice complexity
Palate: The body is medium-plus, it has a smooth feel with a little stickiness, and a soft carbonation
Overall Impression: This is an interesting one, and interesting is the right word, because it is probably more interesting then it is good. By that I mean that even though there’s a lot going on, which leads to a fairly complex flavor, it doesn’t all fit together perfectly. Still though, it is quite interesting and worth trying, and I like the idea of the beer and much of what is happening, so I’m a little torn. I could probably drink this one 10 times and have 10 different scores, but tonight, I settled here.

1 pint, 9.36 oz. bottle. Malty-yeasty nose with light spice, sparkling fruity Belgian yeast out in front of a touch of yellow sunshine, but there’s light and dark roast, too. Pours a hazy amber that settles brown with transparency around the hips, rocky tan head, just gorgeous on the whole. Lightish body, beautiful Belgian yeast at the fore, alcohol extremely well hidden, fruit is extremely bright. Light malty chocolate and herbal notes in with the mineral. Restrained sweetness, low bitterness but it’s a very tasty one in the aftertaste. Advertised as having the spiciness of a trippel, maltiness of a dubbel, but they also seemed to have plucked the best of each yeast variation; this is a great example of wonderful subtlety in the soft middle and on the margins.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2013 On-cask at Frisco Grille in Columbia, MD. Served in a Trappist glass, dark brown color with tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roast malt, caramel and dark fruit. Taste adds malt sweetness, some hop bitterness, spices and some booze. Heavy-medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good.

callmemickey (4253) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2013 It’s back! Dark brown body, healthy pale tan head, good soapy lacing. Nose show dark fruity malts, caramel, and a little chocolate. Some spicy/spicy Belgian yeast. Flavor is similar, perhaps, less yeasty than expected for this hybrid style beer. Medium to full bodied, smooth carbonation, finish lingers slightly.
