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.

mmather (181) - Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2016
deep, dark, smooth. Alcohol is evident, but obscured. Drinks more like a mellow, foreign stout than a porter, but is still a good beer. Be sure to get this one fresh for best results.

nearbeer (4923) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 1, 2016
33 cl. bottle pours jet black with a spongy foam on top that settles to a lasting creamy film. Nose is molasses with a bit of tobacco, char and spicy green herb. Tastes of molasses, cured tobacco, tart apple, espresso and earthy cocoa nibs. Finish has some toasted wood and marshmallow. Medium-heavy body has smooth medium carbonation and a bit of a dessert slant, but still very drinkable. Interesting and tasty, kind of a hybrid Sweet Stout/Baltic Porter.
