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.

A tad tart with alcohol apparent, and fleeting sweetness. To address the previously stated idea that the sourness is an unintentional feature of Yards’ bottling process, I will say that I’ve had it straight from a keg at the brewery, and it still tastes that way.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Poured a very dark brown which looked like a dubble. The smell was very strong, in fact too strong for my taste. The alcohol was very strong in the aroma. The aroma was fruity, and had liquorice and a bitterness like vinegar in it as well. The taste was the same, but the alcohol came up and bit me. Pretty good, but nothing to go crazy over.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2005
(Draught, Drafting Room) Pours a murky dark brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of licorice and dark fruits. Flavor of licorice, raisins, cherry, molasses, and a hint of wood and smoke.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2005 On tap, Grey Lodge: Cherries, mollases and alcohol all dominate this beer now and I like it. A decent finishing burn from the alcohol make this beer a 2 "Danger Will Robinson" special.

Draft at the brewery. Nice malt character throughout the whole beer. Alcohol was hidden rather well.
