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.

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.

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.

NikkTwist (1745) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2013 Draft at Moriartys. Pitch brown pour (darker than a Dubbel) with a large foamy head that left some unusual fizzy marsmallow lace. Clean medium-dark malt flavors. Some red fruits. Some burnt caramel. Bit of coffee and chocolate. Coke syrup. Otherwise complex notes, though they a bit shallow. Little thicker body than most dark ales. Update: Have had this a few times now and beginning to like it more than I did at first. Finding it with a creamier mouthfeel. Nice semi-dry finish for a malty dark ale.

Pours a dark brown with a 2-fingered tan head. Smells of chocolate, spices, herbs. Taste is sweet & bitter, chocolate, nutmeg, mild hops.

radio_nowhere (913) - 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.

ben4321 (4092) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Location: Bomber from Buy Rite, 1/22/13

Aroma: A fairly sweet nose, with brown sugar, chocolate, Belgian yeast, spice, and some dark fruit
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a foamy, lasting, brown head that leaves heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is mid-heavy sweet, with quite a bit of spice as well, and some nice complexity
Palate: The body is medium-plus, it has a smooth feel with a little stickiness, and a soft carbonation
Overall Impression: This is an interesting one, and interesting is the right word, because it is probably more interesting then it is good. By that I mean that even though there’s a lot going on, which leads to a fairly complex flavor, it doesn’t all fit together perfectly. Still though, it is quite interesting and worth trying, and I like the idea of the beer and much of what is happening, so I’m a little torn. I could probably drink this one 10 times and have 10 different scores, but tonight, I settled here.

Pretty decent - bottle from Wegs in State College. Pretty much a standard dubbel in taste and characteristics, dark, sweet, malty, a bit of yeasty action in the nose and palate gives it an edge. But somehow they stuck a bit more alcohol in there, totally undetectable, a bit more than a dubbel. Well done.

On tap at Victory Bar and Grill.
Appearance: Clear and dark garnet body with a thin tan head.
Aroma: Banana and light alcohol. Dark fruits, sweet malts and hints of cocoa.
Taste: Complex with brown sugar, dark fruits, cocoa and banana.
Palate: Medium bodied, medium carbonation.
Overall: Solid beer with good complexity.
