@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.

Poured into a Belgian tulip.

The head is a frothy, khaki-colored beast that requires multiple pours in order to get the liquid level where I want it. As the head dissipates, lace seems to have exploded as from a grenade about the glass. The body is dark brown and slightly resembles plum skin. There's no transparency, trickles of carbonation and yeast particles visible. 4

Initially, I thought I smelled some toasted coconut like Trois Pistoles, but a second whiff suggests a heavy dose of plum and raisin. There's a candy-like sweetness and fruity esters. 3.75

Sweetness reigns on the palate as well, as this is almost port-like, raisiny, and sort of mineral-like the way earthy raisins can be. It's heavy on dark fruit flavor and finishes with an odd metallic taste. 3.75

It's a burly beer that is filling and has a kick to it, although the alcohol is well-masked. It's mostly cream and smooth, but there's a metallic taste that isn't nice to the tongue. 3.75

There are good moments to this beer and others less so. It's mostly enjoyable and good for slow-sipping.

A nice looking ruby red brew with a fluffy tan head sits in front of me begging to be drank. I'll oblige.

Has a subdued and pleasant aroma of dark fruits, phenols, spice and grain.

Tastes of dark fruits (persimmon and prune), prune juice and black licorice. Has an unexpectedly timely, big and fitting hop finish.

Medium-bodied with a dry finish. Quite easy despite the ABV.

Can't wait to get back down south to grab some more goodies from Community!
