Caramel, roasted, black and chocolate malts provide an explosion of coffee like flavors. The strong espresso character comes from the addition of espresso beans to the boil. Notes of vanilla, dark fruit , cocao and chocolate. The very unusual character of Hitachino Nest Espresso Stout stems from the fact that Kiuchi Brewery is using the recipe of a Russian Imperial Stout as base. Pitch black color, big brown head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted bitterness, black currants, dark fruits.

ardeo (179) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2016
Bouteille 33cl. Noire, mousse foncée peu résistante. Superbe nez de café torréfié, chocolat, biscuit, fruits noirs, réglisse. Excellent expresso doux en bouche et vanille, chocolat, amertume moyenne de bon aloi. Excellente ! N’abusez pas si vous voulez bien dormir car on ne sait pas si le breuvage est décaféiné :-)

Swaroga (2111) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 20, 2016
33cl bottle. Black with big, beige head. The aroma is quite fresh for a stout. Lots of nuts, vanilla, orange peel, coca-cola like caramel and herbs. Also lots of toffee and roasted coffee with lots of milk. Nice. The mouth feel has an aggressive carbonation but it’s creamy and fluffy. The taste is quite sweet with notes of toffee/caramel and dark chocolate. It gets more and more roasted into dark chocolate like bitterness. The finish is getting bitter but still not overpowering the sweetness. There is also some hints of fresh espresso acidity. Overall it’s a rich and tasty stout. Something I could come back to.
