Voltage Espresso Stout – Hoyne Brewing

O’hare’s Beer Club February 2013 Box

Limited Edition

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.
