Alexander Black is the first of our seasonal beers. A wintry beer, dark and warming, strong in alcohol, rich and complex with flavors and aromas of dark chocolate and espresso. The basic style is porter, but Alexander Black is a Turbo Porter higher in alcohol, richer and more complex.

This is an enhanced version of our beer that won gold medal in the category of Porter in 2009 Stout Challenge competition. If maintained properly, Alexander Black will continue to improve with time.

Bottle thanks to Kerenmk. Pours inky black with large spongy tan head, mocha aroma, bitter dark chocolate taste, with alcohol undertones, full body, long bitter mocha finish. Very tasty and satisfying porter, bordering a stout.

BillKismet (3562) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Dark chocolate body with a luscious chocolate caramel top. Luscious, sweet, caramel chocolate malt ball aroma. Quite a desserty porter. This beer is consistent from appearance, to aroma, to flavor. Caramel and chocolate malt ball define this beer. Definitely veers to the sweet side, and there are perhaps some lactose veins within.

Maakun (1871) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle thanks to rayaron. Black with short lasting very fizzy beige head. Looks like black cola or something. Molasses, light leaves, sweet milk chocolate and fake chocolate alternatives. Grainy, dried dark plums and some raisins. Over medium sweet. Medium bodies with low carbonation. Feels unbalanced, it has some good aromas but the low carbonation lets it down a bit.

jinroh (803) - ESTONIA - JUL 8, 2015
Dark brown, thin and creamy beige foam. Aroma has a bit of sweet and creamy lactose, a loaf of burnt toast. There are berries, nice round roast and a bit of acidity at the end. Nicely and enjoyably drinkable porter.

Big thanks to Zeev for that one! Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Starts intense malty, roasty, some earthy-woody notes. Hints of bitter chocolate, some coffee. Dry-malty finish, but well balanced. A good one!
