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.

dnicolaescu (2279) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - DEC 14, 2016
BOTTLE 33 CL. Pitch black, dark mocha head. Rich coffee aroma, tons of coffee flavoured candies with nice sticky sweetness somewhere in the background. Surprisingly dry and bitter taste - the malts are barely there, strong espresso with a pleasant well roasted coffee bean acidity, lingering well into the finish. Smooth easy-drinking body. Excellent.

Bottle bought at Library Cafe in Kanchanaburi, Thailand. I was pretty amazed to find craftbeers in Thailand. I decided to grab this one and I didnt regret it. Dark chocolate and coffee smells. Delightful mix of roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee beans, small notes of dark fruits. First beer tasted from Japan. Amazing!

Celestial good smell of coffee and sweetness. The flavor is coffee and dark chocolate. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Wonderful beer but loses flavor after a while. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
