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.

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.

This brew pours almost solid black with some reddish/purple highlights when held up to the light. There is a creamy two finger head which turns into a collar and medium lacing.

The smell is filled with malts, mostly sweet but a few roasted malts as well, along with dried fruits, maybe pear, plums and apple, as well as caramel. There is also a dank, musty smell.

The taste is mostly roasted and sweet malts. This beer is heavily malted. Then the caramel taste comes through along with some alcohol that leaks through. There is a musty, dank earthy taste finished off by spicy hops however something keeps this from being as good as other Belgian Strong Dark Ales. Don't get me wrong, this is a good beer but it does not pop like it should. That could be because Yards decided to mix two styles in this one. Give it a try and see what you think.

Fairly carbonated for a belgian style, has some solid caramel malt notes and some faint breadiness you find in the style, but doesn't leave a lasting impression. Good, captures the broad essence of the Belgian style but lacks the intricacies. Probably would have benefited from going head-on into the tripel aspects instead trying to balance it with the lighter dubbel.
