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.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2016 It is a good beer, we can smell the coffee, interesting beer nice black color and brown foam. There is an interesting side bitter and of course the coffee nespresso is giving a nice side "onctueux". It is a stout not so ordinary and I was astonished to find this beer in the pibar at the tap.

nazzty (1156) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2016
Pitch black with brown foam and a nice taste of coffee. Nose is coffee and sweet chocolate. Would have scored even better if it wasn’t for the irritating sour aftertaste.

lokis333 (218) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JAN 7, 2016
Inpenatratable balck color with medium gira/kvass color foam. Aromas of sweet coffee, cocoa, hot chocholate and chocholate truffels. Palate, full body with ritch, thick and full texture. Carbonation wise it has bit of a fizz on the tongue and leaves nice sweet coffee finish. Taste is sweet at start and has nice coffee bitter finish to it. Tastes of coffee and black chocolate. Over all nice coffee stout, with full flavour and it is not watery as some others which is good. Would recomend it!
