Named after famed Belgian detective Hercule Poirot and considered a World Classic. Made in small batches, then lagered for ten days in German oak casks. Hercule is considered by many to be a classic, it is very malty, but dry, with a hint of sweetness in the finish, and perfectly hopped. It has a very distinctive and intoxicating spicy aroma of fresh spruce that suddenly, irresistibly, fills the room when the swing-top is released. This unique house character probably derives from the strains of yeast used by the brewery and possibly from the fermentation in oak and because the beer is made entirely of malt and hops, without any spices or sugar.
