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!

A - This beer poured a dark brown color that had some ruby highlights that produced a tan frothy head that had good retention and left a good lace around the glass

S - The aromas produced were roasted malts, chocolate, cinnamon, and nutmeg

T - The mix of a Porter and a Christmas Beer was great, I got big roasted malts and bitter dark chocolate, some spiciness of cinnamon and nutmeg, a good splash of bitterness at the end

M - The mouth of this beer was creamy and smooth, a medium to heavy body that was accompanied with a slight amount of carbonation

D - This Porter was a very enjoyable example of a Christmas beer, the spices mixed well with the style and produced a very enjoyable beer

This is actually the first time I have had this beer, and it's from a bottle that has been in my cellar for a year.

Nice thick brown head atop a rich, dark beer. Aromas of chocolate, hops, roasted malt, toffee. A fabulous tasting brew, and easily one of the best porters I have had. This beer is really easy to drink, and I will definitely be picking up a few of these from FFF in a couple of days.
