While I wouldn’t gamble my life savings on it, this suggests ageing Inonotus hispidus to me. Especially the reddish-orange colour tones of the upper surface coupled with the contrasting cream-coloured pore surface. With maturity, the initially broadly rounded margin of the I. hispidus bracket often becomes narrowed and ‘sharpened’ in this manner too.

Don’t think Phellinus pomaceus (which is usually very hard and more rounded in shape) gets this big. Though maybe jfc sees it more frequently than I and can confirm otherwise.
