Hercules Black Lager

Flying Boats Brewing

405092000004

This is a beer we brewed to celebrate the changing seasons and has a refreshing taste of smooth dark chocolate with a lightly toasted cracker flavour that finishes with a quick, clean and light finish to the palette. Kind of a Dark rich smooth British Stout that finished crisp like a German Lager. 5% ABV and IBUs 28.

The story behind the name: The Hercules (and Samsom) was the first wood-fired steam locomotives, built by Hinckley in the UK and delivered by boat in the summer of 1854 at Pointe du Chêne wharf. Later that winter the locomotive was pulled on a bobsled, by a large team of horses, over the snowy road to Shediac to begin construction of the European and North American Railway Company railroad.
