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!

Thanks to Grant for sending this one to me.

A: The pour is a dark brown color with some definite red highlights. A short lived off-white head is present, too.

S: Quite a lot of roast, and perhaps char, with just a touch of smokiness. There are some nice hints of dark fruits, earthy hops, and bitter dark chocolate. I seem to pick up just a touch of licorice.

T: Mostly roasted malt flavor with a nice char character. A mild sweetness in the form of toffee, and the same earthy hop notes. A mild to moderate bitterness to the beer.

M: Medium in body and medium carbonation, too.

D: Kind of heavy on the roast which limits the amount of other qualities you can pick up, but good.
