I hadn’t got to my guide about the Hypoxylon, but was getting to that. Good I.d. Xylaria. Wow. If that;s the case, and it perfectly fits the profile (you can see it in the pic before I split it open), that;s the first I have ever found both growing on wood and on alder specifically.
That’s a cool find! Your third photo shows a cross-section that makes it look like the interior is solid white. Is that accurate? The concentric zonation in Daldinia is usually pretty obvious. Check out this example: http://mushroomobserver.org/35130?q=2Y10X
From your photos, it looks like you’ve actually got a peculiar Xylaria; the smaller, reddish-looking things look to be a different fungus on the same substrate, perhaps a Hypoxylon. Different members of the Xylariaceae often can be found on the same piece of wood.
