COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Turboninja (229) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2015
Bottle@home. Medium aroma of bitter coffee, dark chocolate and hint of vanilla. Dark brown/black color with medium light beige head. Medium/strong taste of dominating bitter coffee. After firs bite comes roasted malts and chocolate in balanced fashion. Wide taste spectrum and long, malty bit bitter aftertaste. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall very sturdy and balanced flavors for 7.5%, but too bitter.

King_Alex_II (676) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 7, 2015
Pitch black oily color with a brown foam ring. The smell is best described by the name of the beer. The taste is smooth, sweet, light oily, thick and intense on coffee flavors and has the stout typical particle mouth feeling. The aftertaste is smooth, thick and coffee and chocolate like. Great beer.
