Alpha Klaus is Alpha King’s cousin. A big American X-mas Porter brewed with English chocolate malt and Mexican sugar and of course tons of strange American hops! Cheers.

From bomber (thanks, Schaefer!) Pours a nice dark brown with a finger or so of tan head. Dark, almost burnt malt aroma. Burnt malt dominates the flavor, and this beer suffers from the same thing most porters suffer... Teasing of a richness that the style just can't uphold. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown pour with a medium body and average carbonation. Strong anise and molasses aroma and taste, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and fairly bitter hops.

J’avoue avoir été déçu par ce classique de 3 Floyds. Cette bière est brune foncée avec une belle mousse beige. Le nez est riche et profond avec ses notes de malt, de caramel, de toffee et d’alcool. La bouche est mince, beaucoup plus mince que ce que le nez laissait présager. C’est agréable mais sûrement sur-évalué.

Not much to dislike about this one. Pours perfectly, nice aroma, pleasing chocolate taste. Doesnt have the nasty sting that some imperials have.

[Bottle] Pours jet black in color with a rocky brown head. Nose is of pine, zesty hops, roasty malts and light coffee. Heavy molasses and burnt caramel throughout the taste. Dark brown sugar, piney hops and light tobacco/earthiness. Chalky mouthfeel, but with a more syrupy texture to it. Big and bitter finish. Nice! Tasting notes from 2/2014.

Merci à Hammy78 pour cette bombe. Un corps bien noir sur lequel se forme une mousse brune presque indestructible. La dentelle laissée sur la paroi ressemble à un relief montagneux. Au nez, les houblons percent difficilement le mur malté et rôti. Sur les papilles, le chocolat, le café et le caramel foncé sont traversés par des flaveurs de houblons fruités et mentholés. En bouche, c’est bien crémeux. Le corps n’est jamais trop dense. En finale, c’est sec avec une amertume construite à la fois par le travail des grains et le travail des houblons.
