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.

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.

Definitely funky in a Belgian way. Has plenty of the malt sweetness of a dubbel, yet without the complexity of the best ones. It also has the dry finish, spiciness, and strength of a tripel.

BBB63 (6426) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 12, 2003
Murky dark brown hue with very nice tan head and some lace. Aroma is sort of fruity lambic with some sour cherry, wood, dusty yeast and light Belgian candi. A soft yet lively beer with a balanced tart fruit and sweet malt flavor combination, minor yeast undertone. Full-body with a nice mouthfeel. I liked this beer as it pushed the envelope within the genre, try it once.

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.

Dorwart (2431) - 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.
