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.

TET (1621) - FINLAND - JUL 17, 2014
A black beer with a big, creamy and light brown head. The aroma has storng roastiness, espresso and balanced sweetness of berries/strawberries. Taste has lots of black coffee, dry roastiness, hops together with coffee are drying the mouth. Medium+ bodied, low carbonation, nicely smooth to drink. Simple elements but the overall impression is very good. Balanced coffee.

Calisky (617) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUL 16, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 Couleur noire, forte mousse beige très cremeuse. Super nez puissant de grain de café, expresso. Gout super doux et crémeux en bouche de café malté, bien rond et intense. Fin très longue et puissante en bouche de café expresso, bien savoureuse. On ouvre la bouteille, on s’arrete d’un coup de tout faire, on sent on savoure longtemps a deguster.... Une bombe!

Nice dark appearance with a slight coffee aroma. I'm not a huge fan of coffee beers but this one has a nice dry start with a slightly sweet/coffee finish. Pleasently surprised -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Botella de 33 cl en cimmeria en el momento el 07-06-2914. Fecha de cons pref para 02-2015. Color negro intenso brillante con bastante espuma al servir, quedándose al poco tiempo en una pequeña corona de color beige oscuro. Aromas de café quemado y achicoria bastante intensos. Cuerpo medio de 7 vol con bastante espuma al paso por boca, que va desapareciendo poco a poco hasta quedarse casi en un suave licor de café torrefacto. Sabores ligeros, predominando el café y achicoria, algo de maltas tostadas y cacao. Buena increíble su sabor de café tostado y potente. Para repetir de nuevo,, claro.

Bottle from Hop Hideout in Sheffield. Pours black with a tan head. Wow. This is very tasty. Start off a with a little sweetness with notes of coffee, chocolate and liquorice. The finish is dry and full of delicious coffee flavour. Very, very good. Just a tiny bit over carbonated would be my only criticism.
