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.

radio_nowhere (917) - Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2013
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.

About a 1 inch thick light brown head of fine bubbles. Sweet malts, fresh cut grass, light spice and some fruit esters. Color is a dark mahagony brown with a hint of red in the background. Considerable malt backbone with some dried fruit, spices, roasted grains and yeast. All the characteristics of a fine belgian dubbel. Light alcohol presence and warming. Finishes with lots of soft malts and lingering spices. A pretty good dubbel.

On tap at Cantwells. I did not expect Yards to be able to pull of a legit Belgian style beer. This is great. Dark and fruity with a nice earthy character. Nice Belgian yeastiness. I liked it a lot.

Transfer from BA review on 9-17-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a murky brown color with some light hints of red within. Upon pouring there is a tan colored head of about one finger height. The head is composed of lots of fizzy bubbles fading fast to leave some light streaking lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heavy of darker fruits with plum, cherry and raisin. Along with the fruit there is a rather strong roasted malt aroma as well as sweeter smells of toffee and candied sugar. Rounding out the smell is an aroma of yeast bringing with it some notes of coriander and clove spice as well as some banana. Taste – The taste begins with a sweet and roasted malt flavor upfront. The sweet is heavier of a caramel and toffee flavor at the start, but transitions to being more dominated by some darker and lighter fruits more toward the middle and the end of the taste. Along with the fruits coming into the tongue, so too does some spice flavors of clove and coriander with just a hint of yeast. A chocolate flavor develops more at the end of the tongue and is joined by some warming boozy alcohol tastes to end up leaving a sweet and darker malt flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is average to slightly high. The combination is very nice for the darker and warming flavors of the brew all while complimenting well the fruitiness of the beer. Overall- Very dubbel like in nature but with a bit more potency and some notes of a triple mixed within. A rather enjoyable brew for sure.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 6, 2014
THOUGHTS: A very nice and interesting beer. An interesting idea, too, to merge the two styles. Not as good as the blending of the two styles could be, but it was very easy to drink. Hid alcohol quite well. Incredible how it has the actual flavors of a dubbel but the lighter mouth feel like a tripel. TECHNICAL: Drank 3/18/2013. Bottle. Poured a clear, very dark red that basically looked dark brown in the glass with an average, tan head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma contained heavy dark bread, grain, molasses, caramel and chocolate; moderate doughy and spicy yeast; raisin; cherry; brown sugar; and dark fruit. The initial flavor was lightly acidic, slightly bitter and moderately sweet; while the finish was heavily sweet, lightly acidic and slightly bitter with a fairly long duration. There was dark bread, caramel, brown sugar, raisins, molasses, spices, toast, chocolate, yeast, bread, cake, spicy yeast, dark fruit, cherry, sweet tobacco, doughy yeast, slightly sour fruit and slight alcohol. The medium to full body was slightly syrupy and sticky on the lips with lightly fizzy carbonation, that softens with each sip, and a lightly alcoholic finish.

Pours a nice brown color with off-white head. Wheat, biscuit, cocoa, and caramel malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a bit of dark fruit.

kramer (5108) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear mahogany brown body with a small frothy beige head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is very heavy and fruity with lots of malt and a bit of light alcohol. It’s especially heavy on banana, with candi sugar and a heavy yeastiness. The flavor is rather sweet, reminds me a bit of a cross between a Dubbel and a Belgian Quad really. Heavy candi sugar, dark fruits, over-ripe bananas, fairly prominent alcohol, caramel, some light chocolate malt notes. Full bodied and chewy with a slight stickiness and fizzy carbonation. Interesting beer with a lot of intense flavors going on, but not something that I’d drink with regularity.

750ml bottle from Pizz5116 that he picked up from the brewery. Thanks bro! Poured a dark amber brownish color with almost no head. Aroma of sweet dark fruit, caramel, and chocolate. Taste is nice. Roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, sweet raisins, yeast, and a mild nuttiness. Good stuff.

Busick (390) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Usually Belgian beers are not my favorite, but to my surprise this one from Yards is very tasty. Aromas of caramel and chocolate with an appearance of a medium to dark amber. Would love to try more from Yards!

Huhzubendah (2668) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle shared by Jeff. Thanks man. The beer is dark chestnut brown with a thick, beige head. Ample lacing coats the glass. The aroma offers a prominent dose of banana, followed by Belgian yeast, malt, brown bread. Too much banana character in the flavor. A bit sharp and unbalanced. Not on par with the authentic Belgian dark beers I have grown to love.
