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.

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.

radio_nowhere (1366) - 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.

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.

Bottle from my brother. Initial pour and aroma brings out the dubbel characteristics. Dark ruby brown with small, soft beige head. Sweet pit fruit aroma, brown sugar follows on into taste. Dubbel elements dominate, still trying to find the tripel, bits of coriander spiciness perhaps. Warmth comes on very late, mostly sweet finish.

25.36 oz bottle. Dark brown with a thick cap of beige foam leaving lacy webs. Nose is brown sugar, wood and fig; slightly vinous. Medium body with a fuzzy tingle. Tastes like a mix of red wine and root beer or gingerbread. Not quite sweet; alcohol well hidden. Cool hybrid.
