COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Taking elements from two classic Belgian styles, weíve 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.

Found this on a weekend in Jersey. Huge brown clamp-top bottle, perfect for homebrewing. Pours a thick milky brown, with a slightly tan white head. (You have to pour fairly vigorously to generate a decent sized head.) Aroma is very authentic. Fruity and estery. Flavor is very sweet and smooth, with hints of banana, grape, a bit of dry nuttiness, and a little plum. Very full bodied, almost thick. Tastes of caramel malt, with a touch of roastiness. An interesting style unto its own. Iíd easily buy this again.

I had a small draft of the Trubbel. With an ABV of 9.6% I was surprised how well the high alcohol tasted was hidden. Aroma was strong, initially I had a "raisin" taste in my mouth, and some hop bitterness. Itís a big beer, worth sampling.

This beer from Yards was a very interesting brew, it had a dark Mahogany colored brew with a tint of red. It has a brownish/tan foam head. But then we get to the taste. It had fruitish smells of pineapples and oranges. But the taste satisfied the most advanced beer drinker. It has a complex smokey taste that has has the hint of fruits with a hint of hoppiness. It is a good beer with a good after taste, it is defintly worth the money.

Hmmm, i was quite high when tasting this brew so my rating may be a little off. I did love this brew. It was very dark in color. Not much head. Very sweet and chocolate. I had the 1 liter bottle, i liked that!

on cask: first impression was very sweet. It went well with to food we had, but I canít imagine drinking one whole.

Full dark and syrupy w/ a rich white head. At first I thought it was excellent, displaying corriander and a strong sugary taste. But over time it came to annoy me. Was like drinking maple syrup. A nice initial taste, smell, and look but it didnít last.

Pretty damn good, one of my favorites at the GABF. Sweetish, "purple" tasting beer.

Not a very good shot at a dubbel. Hits hard with a 9.2 abv, but over a pretty boring, yeast-dominated body. Ends with an almost cloying, lightly bitter palate.
