Alpha King’s festive cousin. A big American Christmas Porter brewed with English chocolate malt, Mexican sugar and of course, tons of strange American hops. Cheers!

Presented in a 22oz bomber and poured into a large mug. Dark murky brown coloration topped by a burgeoning tan head that threatened to break flood stage before settling back down to a thick lathery cap. Great lace.
Nose had a strong espresso note dotted with chocolate and nuts. Hops resins cruised around the edges letting it be known the hops were there in force.
Tasted slickly hoppy at the outset. Coffee essence rolled up and laid out on the tongue. Had a dark chocolate covered espresso bean taste. Hazelnut and faint peat flavors linger as each sip crested mid-palate before fading on the finish. Hope resins remain after each sip departs, something I can always count on with a Three Floyds brew. The feel was hearty and full, very nice.
Mmm, mmm, Alpha Claus XMas Porter is one tasty porter! Dinkability borders on ridiculous. Check the BeerSpy for where I found it; there were still a few left as of this past Sunday.
