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.

Black beer with big fluffy head in beige colour. Aroma has espresso coffee, some herbs and grassy notes. Taste has lots of espresso coffee, dry roasted malts. Dry coffee stout. Medium body with a bit too high carbonation to my taste.

Aroma of coffee, liquirice, chocolate, roasty, smoke and a bit citrus. Black with a brown head. Medium sweet with a medium bitter finish for the style. Taste of coffee, chocolate and liquirice. Lively carbonation, full body, long finish. Good beer from Japan!

Denne espresso stout har et meget sort udseende med et tykt mørkt skum. Øllen smager kraftigt igennem af kaffe og har noter af karamel, lakrids og lidt frisk citrus. Desuden er den meget cremet. Medium karbonering.

Aromat: na pierwszym miejscu kawa espresso, następnie czekolada, , kakao, zboże i sporo estrów.

Wygląd: barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana ciemno beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita i dosyć trwała.

Smak: słodko z nutą kwaskową i wytrawna kawa. Następnie kakao, czekolada gorzka i mleczna, suszone owoce, lekki alkohol oraz paloność. Goryczka raczej słodowa, poniżej średniej, wyczuwalna, ale niezbyt mocna czy długa. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane wysycenie, palony i odrobinę kwaskowy finisz z nutą alkoholową, ale przyjemną. Bardzo przyzwoite piwo.

Bottle. 7.0%. Best before 08.16. Pours a dark brown, bordering black, with a creamy tan head. Sweet, soft roasted aroma. Weak hint of soy sauce. Dark fruit notes as well as light dusty and bread notes as it warms. Flavour is sweetish with a tart overtone. Roasted. Light bread note, hint of hops. Bitter, somewhat tart finish. Overall okay, well-balanced, but nothing special; a bit boring actually. Not getting any coffee either. 28.10.15.

330ml bottle at home, served in a tulip. Almost black, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate - I had a memory flash of Cadbury’s "Old Jamaica", so perhaps a hint of rum and raisin. Flavours are like a bowl with a scoop each of high end rum and raisin , vanilla, and coffee ice cream. Nicely balanced bittersweet taste. Creamy mouth feel. A bit of a treat. The morning after, I’m sniffing - no, inhaling the bottle, and enjoying happy memories.

(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 09/2016, from Alko Arkadia, 20151009) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized, lightly brown and it lasted long. Aroma had burnt malts, coffee and creaminess. Palate was medium bodied and fizzy. Flavours were burnt malts, coffee, sweetness, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste had coffee, burnt malts and bitterness. A good coffee infused stout.
