Ellezelloise Hercule Stout

Bottle-conditioned 330ml 9%

Light carbonation for Belgian beer. Not much head retention for a stout.

Quite light aroma. Caramel, dark fruit, hint of chocolate.

Taste is caramel, fruit. mostly dark with a touch of cherry, I think. Light chocolate. Bitter-sweet.

Finish is drier with light fruit and chocolate and roast malt.

Easy to drink for the strength. Perhaps a little light in taste for a 9% stout but it makes a nice change to have one that does not have strong roast malt and coffee flavour. I would probably buy this again.
