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.

Swaroga (2130) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 20, 2016
33cl bottle. Black with big, beige head. The aroma is quite fresh for a stout. Lots of nuts, vanilla, orange peel, coca-cola like caramel and herbs. Also lots of toffee and roasted coffee with lots of milk. Nice. The mouth feel has an aggressive carbonation but its creamy and fluffy. The taste is quite sweet with notes of toffee/caramel and dark chocolate. It gets more and more roasted into dark chocolate like bitterness. The finish is getting bitter but still not overpowering the sweetness. There is also some hints of fresh espresso acidity. Overall its a rich and tasty stout. Something I could come back to.

Bottle. Aroma of espresso, dark chocolate, figs, roast, tobacco. Pours out almost pitch black, beige creamy head. Taste has loads of dark chocolate and espresso on the back. Nice toasty and malty character. Medium plus body, soft carbonation, oily mouthfeel, espresso and toasty finish. Good stuff!

Pite z okazji przebicia 500 sprbowanych piw, pierwszy wpis na ratebeer. Piwo bardzo dobre, ale tylko tyle. Oczekiwałem jednak więcej. Spodziewałem się więcej kawy, tymczasem wyraźnie odznacza się ona tylko w zapachu. W smaku jest bardziej likierowo - coś na kształt wiśnia/śliwka w czekoladzie. Raczej jednowymiarowo. Czuć alkohol ciut. A i co ciekawe - jest miejscami lekko przejrzyste, ma rubinowe refleksy. Oglnie być może moja butelka źle zniosła trudy przechowywania i tyle.

Casi negra, casi opaca. Bonita espuma ocre consistente y duradera. Intenso aroma caf recin molido. Cremosa entrada en boca, con buen punto de gas. Compleja en el sabor, con notas cidas frutales, vainilla, caf y chocolate y amargor notable. Muy sabrosa. Redonda.
