Ales are all the rage when it comes to seasonal brews. This one from Three Floyds brewery is a porter. And, although it's only got 6% ABV, it's got a serious kick. Don't skip this one just because it doesn't have a traditional Christmasy sort of a name.
This is the Alpha King’s festive cousin. It's a big American Christmas porter brewed with English chocolate malt, Mexican sugar, and of course, tons of strange American hops. Cheers!
