Nice clerk, "I see you got the newest one by Hoyne."
Nice, observant clerk. "It's a stout made with local coffee."
Good memory clerk, "It's like the beer he used to make at the other place."
Fictional clerk,"You don't say much, you pompous twerp. I'm trying to be sociable."
Voltage Espresso Stout = 5/10
The nose is fairly straight forward: powdery espresso, slight chocolate and mild earthy herbals. Nothing new in the sip, just a dry stout ending. In the middle is a slight cooling wateriness, but it's nice. Not the most exciting beer of the year, but it is solid and I am sad that my bottle is empty. Well done.
