Review: Quintine Hercule

Hercule Stout from Brasserie Ellezelloise
Rating: A-

Enjoyed at The Elm Tree pub in Cambridge.

Appearance: Very dark, thin head, little lacing.

Smell: Very "cold" and "dark" smelling, if that makes any sense at all. Hints of anise and alcohol.

Taste: Rich malt and roast, with a very crisp finish. Dark fruit, and a little nuttiness. Alcohol is well-concealed.

Mouthfeel: foamy somehow, despite not appearing to be highly carbonated. Medium body.

Drinkability: Nice one! More please.
