O’hare’s Beer Club February 2013 Box
From Victoria BC’s Hoyne Brewing comes the “Voltage Espresso Stout” made with espresso from Habit Coffee in Victoria (http://habitcoffee.com/). This brew pours a deep black with a tan head. The aroma of this beer is of roasted malts, espresso and some chocolate. The flavour of the beer is of roasted malts, chocolate, smoke and a huge espresso hit with a good bitterness. This stout has a nice balance between sweetness and bitterness. The alcohol content of the stout is 5.6%.
If you are not careful this beer will become Habit forming!
Shaner D and I doing the live circuit at Beer fest, alternating the spro and stout: “Let’s make a beer with shocking polarity.” “Black on black” I agreed. Tommy D, always the conductor, kept us grounded with his three-pronged wisdom: “Like love, boys, it starts with a spark. When the field is fully charged, flip the switch: Voltage!”
Food Pairing according to O’hare’s Beer Club notes are as follows: Brunch, waffles with ice cream & chocolate sauce.
