Brasserie des Légendes – Hercule Stout – 9.0%
From the Brasserie des Légendes comes Hercule Stout at 9.0%. A slight metallic aroma on decapping, which quickly drops out to reveal the slightest hint of noble hops. The mouthfeel is smooth and the beer is moderately bitter with after tastes of coffee, berry and smoky dark chocolate. ABV is completely hidden, yet slightly warming in the aftertaste. I expected a bit more body in the mouthfeel. A very strange stout, different yet quite enjoyable. Not much head or retention for such a big stout.
