Taking elements from two classic Belgian styles, weve 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.

boto (2178) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 22, 2016
750ml bottle: this one pours a clear, very dark caramel (think coke) with some ruby tinges. There was just a touch of a light tan head. Nice nose. Raisins, plums, yeast, slightly burnt candi sugar. The taste is also quite good. yeasty, bready, faint plums, caramel, a hint of roasted malts, candi sugar.

Cakes (422) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2016
Sampled at a brewfest. A soft yet lively beer with a balanced tart fruit and sweet malt flavor combination, minor yeast undertone. Full-body with a nice mouthfeel here.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2015
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.

skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2015
pours from 2014 750 ml bottle. Pours hazy reddish dark brown with a one finger tan head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of dark fruits, dark belgian candy sugar, toasted biscuit malts, caramel, sweet malts, vanilla, fruity eithers, and some light booze has it warms. Taste is dark fruits, candy belgian sugar, caramel, sweet malts, butterscotch, vanilla, molasses, lightly roasted biscuit malts, some spiciness, and light booze as it warms. Has a medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, slightly warming, long, lingering finish. Overall, a tasty, pretty complex, winter sipper that defiantly improves with age.

Fruity aromas, raisiny, red apple, light banana. Pretty clear bronze with a decently lasting off-white head. Pretty dry, slightly boozy, earthy and fruity notes create a pleasant balance. Medium bodied.

stevoj (4697) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 17, 2015
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.

A bit sweet but really a good effort fo pr the style. Light cola color with a slight haze it finishes well despite the sugar, lots of raisins and caramel

2013 750mL Drunk 1/26/15.
Always been a big fan of Yards, maybe not the best technical brewery and not overly adventurous with the styles brewed, but theres just something endearing about the Philly beer scene. Not that Yards is a big player there, nor even much of a player at all. In that vein, then, you have a pretty basic strong dubbel with the dryness of some of the stronger trippels and that strength as well. The pour is fine, the nose satisfyingly phenolic, but it just comes with too much booziness and dry, peppery phenols. The nutty, somewhat scratchy malt notes do nothing to help and Im left with but another American abbey ale, which is to say, not an abbey ale at all. Perhaps this bottle would have been better fresh? Seems like alcohol persistence is going to dominate no matter the age. The mouthfeel, as can be assumed, is quite slick and lacks the malt depth/richness to keep interest.
