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. 22°

Hazy brown body with an ok head. The aroma has a bit of apples in it and a slight tartness. There's a nice touch of caramel and it's a little sweet. It's tasty, but I can't say I was overly impressed with it.

Pours a very dark brown with a lacing tan head. Quiet nice looking. The aroma has caramel, roast malt and some wood. The flavor is similar but a bit too sweet for me. The booze is nowhere to be found, rich and warming.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2005 Murky dark brown color with a good size tan head. Lost a few ounces on opening as the bottle was a real gusher. Sour, yeasty aroma that reminded me of pumpernickle bread. Tasted a lot like a Flemish sour ale. Sour, yeasty flavor that was weird but enjoyable.

(Draught, Drafting Room) Pours a murky dark brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of licorice and dark fruits. Flavor of licorice, raisins, cherry, molasses, and a hint of wood and smoke.

Pours dark brown wit a thin tan head. Smells of sweet malt, light spice. Tastes sweet and cherry like with some spicy hints on the finish.

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. It’s a big beer, worth sampling.

argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Muddy dark brown with medium tan head. Aroma is medium sweet, berry fruity, sour yeasty. Taste is very sour, blueberry, yeasty, light cherry. Full body. Calls itself a cross between a dubbel and trippel, but there's some definite lambic quality to this.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2004
This one litre bottle has been sitting in my cellar for I think over a year now. Very dark chocolate brown in color leaving a thin creamy film on top. Aroma is sweet with fruity and malty notes. Some vinegar in there too. Flavor has an unusual sourness that I don’t like. Is it supposed to be sour? Very rich in malt and swettness. Body is like a Tripel, medium bubbly. Overall I just couldn’t get past the sourness of this brew.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Poured a very dark brown which looked like a dubble. The smell was very strong, in fact too strong for my taste. The alcohol was very strong in the aroma. The aroma was fruity, and had liquorice and a bitterness like vinegar in it as well. The taste was the same, but the alcohol came up and bit me. Pretty good, but nothing to go crazy over.

Pours dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma has some sweet dark fruit...fig, raisin, and some spicy/yeasty notes. Flavor is sweet and figgy...light earthy/roastiness. Mouthfeel is light/medium...a bit thin...with a slightly dry earthy/malty finish.
