Hercule Stout is another superb product brewed by the excellent Ezzeloise brewery that can be found on Saveur Bière.
The first beer to claim the title of Belgian Stout, this Belgian craft beer certainly puts forward a strong argument to convince you of its premium quality. Brewed with no added spices or sugar, it can be regarded as one of Belgium's best stouts!
With its magnificent colour of impenetrable black, Hercule Stout develops a creamy beige head with good persistence in the glass.
Light but very pleasant aromas emerge next, oscillating between roasted scents of cocoa and coffee and fruity fragrances of liqueurs. As complex on the nose as it is in the mouth, once on the palate Hercule Stout delivers exceptional flavours very different from the extremely sugary and often very heavy Stouts generally found in Belgium.
Initially very dry but with no sign of its high alcohol content, this beer has a silky texture that literally slides over the palate. It offers roasted flavours of cocoa and espresso, while a delicious bitterness gradually emerges during the tasting, becoming more intense but never dominating the overall character. The finish is absolutely exquisite with very persistent and truly delightful flavours.
With an ABV that sets it apart from the classic English stouts and with taste qualities unusual in a Belgian stout, this Hercule Stout fully lives up to its self-proclaimed title of Belgian Stout! A brew that will rapidly become a classic amongst connoisseurs, and comes highly recommended by the Saveur Bière team.
