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.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - SEP 23, 2007
12oz bottle, brand new to Omaha. Pours a deep black, with only the slightest hints of ruby peeking through the edges. The head peeks at a quarter of an inch, and fades quickly to a wispy swirling head, leaving behind a thin webbing of lace. Smell; the espresso really comes through right away. Very roasty, alomst charred coffee at first, but then fades a little to some chocolate and molasses. Taste; as with the aroma the coffee hits right away, and for a litle while its hard to pick out the other flavors. As it warms though the coffee fades just enough to get some chocolate, molasses and raisins. The finish is all bitter dark roasted malts and coffee beans. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a light smooth carbonation, and the drinkability is good.

Hoponmate (301) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 1, 2017
A terific example of what a strong coffee can do to a stout. Adds a graniness to the beer and amplifies the chocolate notes. A brilliant strong stout.

Schnes Dunkel im Glas, brauner Schaum, etwas sehr feinperlig. In der Nase wundervolle Kaffeenoten und Schokolade. Im Trunk cremig, deutlich Kaffee und Schokolade - cremig bitterer Abgang, lange anhaltend. Wow. Spitzenklasse!

koshack (1556) - Gdask, POLAND - DEC 24, 2016
Bardzo przyjemny aromat, jest lekko palony, ale też rodzynkowy. Potem bardzo intensywna zimna kawa. W smaku lekko kwaskowe, gorzkawe. Trochę gorzkiego karmelu i sporo kawy. Są nuty gorzkiej czekolady. Jest też wanilia. Alkoholu nie czuć w ogle. Nie ma go w smaku. Grzanie pojawia się w przełyku po dłuższej chwili. Bardzo dobre piwo.
