Daldinia  is known by several common names, including King Alfred's Cake, cramp balls, and coal fungus, is a member of Xylariaceae (Ascomycetes).

The First to images seems to be of Daldinia but to confirm it to D concentrica just you have cut in to have this specie has a diagnostic concentric growth ring like formation. If you find there is concentric ring this is undoubtedly D concentrica, but quit hard to determine from outside.
First one the black ascostroma as ... identified it is Daldinia concentrca for the sure.
