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.

budedou (892) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - MAR 23, 2017
Pours black with a creamy beige top. Notes are licorice, chocolate, toasty malt, espresso bean and blackberry. Carbonation was medium on a lighter body especially for a stout.

tightslice (1158) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Bottle from Janes Beer Store in Mountain View, CA. Aroma is mild espresso, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is sweet milk chocolate, vanilla and some mild coffee candy notes. I was expecting a bit more from this one...not a huge fan of the vanilla sweetness here.

colui72 (859) - HONG KONG - MAR 11, 2017
Black with a small tan head, no lacing. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Taste heavy on coffee as well, as expected, mouth feel of ice espresso shake, taste of coffee, after taste of coffee... how much coffee do we want? So, if you dont like coffee, leave it on the shelf! Smooth, low carbonated, wonderful treat for coffee lovers!

Bottle, small stable creamy brown head, opaque extremely dark brown color, flavor of toasted dark bread, coffee and cocoa, espresso coffee flavor with vanila, bittersweet chocolate and some toasted bread in the back, mellow sweetness, lightish bitterness, lively carbonation. Nice and highly enjoyable.

hauxe (587) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2017
Pours black from the bottle. The tan head is thick and creamy and leaves a modest amount of sticky lacing clinging to the glass. The aroma is dark fruit, berry, coffee, and a bit earthy. Taste is bitter with strong coffee notes, dark chocolate, a touch sour. The tartness picks up going into the finish and balances the coffee ground bitterness relatively nicely. I really like the body, which is rich, robust, and smooth. Nice!
