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.

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.

60minuteman (904) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 A dark reddish-brown color. Some lace. Aroma of dark fruits, sugar, trees, malt and tons of booze. Flavor is yeast, alcohol, fruits, earth, chocolate malts. I keep thinking a log. Maybe wet leaves or something. Orgasmic wet leaves that is. Finish is boozy and sticky. Excellent feel.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5136) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Sampled on draft this beer poured a caramel-amber color with a medium sized creamy orange-tan head that left great lacing. The aroma was tart and fruity with notes of pez, citric acid and grapefruit. The flavor was tart, bit sour and fairly chalky with notes of pez, citrus, grapefruit and yeast. Pretty dry. Long finish. Medium body. Quite disappointing.

Dorwart (2402) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2014
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.

Goodgrief (1818) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - NOV 29, 2014
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.
