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.

thunderhops (224) - Vermont, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Pours black with a thick tan head and plenty of lace. Aroma is chocolate, fruity. Taste is bitter chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and some sweetness. Body is a little thin, slightly dry and sticky with bitter chocolate on the palate.

PlutonowyMan (828) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - SEP 24, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2017 Kolor czarny. Wysoka, puszysta, w kolorze brązowym piana. Aromat jest kawowy. Paloność mocnej kawy, dodam, że dobrze posłodzonej bo jest naprawdę słodki likierowy. W tle nieco nut czekoladowych. Smak ponownie jest mocno kawowy, paloność jest sucha, mocna, a kawa jest gorzka. Goryczka nie jest jednak bardzo intensywna, przynajmniej taka jest odczuwalna. Jest wyraźna kawowa, sucha i nieco szorstka. Wysycenie średnie. Faktura piwa jest gładka, miękką, jednak w samym piwie jakby nieco brakowało ciała.

Bottle. Dark brown to black color. Brown foamy head. Almost opaque with a clear ruby highlight note. Refreshing aroma. Some coffee notes but they are faint. Dark chocolate, roasted malt, low dark fruit. Flavor is bitter, roasted. Medium full body. Dark fruit notes in the flavor. Coffee flavor is evident but again faded.

PhilosophyGuy (780) - Łódź, POLAND - AUG 20, 2017
W aromacie głównie kawa zbożowa. W smaku kawa zbożowa, espresso, lekka paloność. Średnio nagazowane, mało intensywne. Alkohol dobrze zakamuflowany. Całkiem okazale się prezentuje. W porządku.

On bottle @Ølfred - Aarhus Streetfood Pours black, with light brown foam. Scent of chocolate, not very coffee like, more chocolaty, intense despite the low abv.

3.5
sarauckelman (550) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2017
Opaque black with dark tan head. There’s something in the aroma that doesn’t quite smell right -- a bit fruity, a bit molasssey? -- in addition to the expected coffee smell. Very thick, but clears out of the mouth quickly. A bit bitter. Many layers of flavor.
