Second beer from this brewery I've had in last two nights, and both have been fantastic.
Picked up a 750ml at Las Colinas Beverages this evening.
Pours with a short, cream colored head over a very cloudy, amber-to-brown body. Head hangs out as a skim film forever, and really nice, sugary/sticky lacing.
Aromas are fresh and bright for the style. Picking up plenty of raisin, spices, molasses, yeast, and even lime tangy-ness.
Flavor is awesome and complex, as this style should be. Lots of sweetness dominates, but doesn't take over thanks to the cut of the hops and yeast (think tree fruits like lemon/lime). Breadiness / yeastiness plays a huge role in the middle, along with a kiss of cocoa powder. Lots of Vermont maple syrup in the finish. Mouthfeel starts full of effervescence and is almost sharp/tangy, but the finish is leaves a bit of thickness / cloy.
Can't believe this beer was produced in TX. I only hope the people here can appreciate the sick skill that went into this, and support this killer new brewery which had the balls to produce a Belgian Strong Dark Ale in Dallas.

@BeerImmediately, this is but one really good brewery in Texas, there are many more. Believe it, just funnin with ya :)
A: Pours a cloudy reddish/brown color. Fine bubbles rises to over two fingers, and forms a rocky looking beige head. Plenty of lace is left behind.
S: Big toasted malts, light caramel sweetness, and banana esters. Lightly spicy, peppery and phenolic. Very nice.
T: Again, very nice and all around solid. A wonderful toasted malt flavor, caramel sweetness. Peppery, and phenolic like spice. Banana like fruity esters. Spot on.
M/D: A medium to full body. A bit high on the carbonation for me at first. After this breaths a bit, it becomes more creamy and smooth. Very enjoyable to drink. A great sipper.
I love Trinity Triple, and this is very good as well. Well done and highly recommended.

750 bottle, poured into a chalice. It pours out so dark brown its nearly black, with a creamy tan head that persists for quite a while. It looks more like a stout, really. Smell is fantastic, prunes, raisins, a little orange, and a whole lotta good. The taste has carob, biscuit, a balanced sweetness, and leathery finish going on. Very nice. A subtle roast oversees the whole affair. The aftertaste is slightly sharp, just barely dry, makes you want to take another sip. Mouthfeel is nice and tingly, just a touch slick, could maybe stand a bit more viscosity. Overall, I like this a lot. Maybe a bit less roast, maybe a bit more sugar up front, but who wants to nitpick. This is a darn good beer and it does my heart good to find Belgian style ales brewed in my Community.

This is the second time I've had this and it is just as good as the first time I tried it. Community Brewing in Dallas is a newcomer to the scene and so far I'm impressed. This is my first actual review so I will keep it simple. I love Belgian ales. This one poured from the tap with a nice white head that dissipated quickly. It had that nice raisin honey taste that a lot of strong Belgians have but not too overpowering. I was surprised to see that this beer had a 9.6 abv. It's very drinkable and not cloying at all. I very solid beer.
