HITACHINO NEST ESPRESSO STOUT

Superb beer...unexpected mix of subtle and in-your-face flavor, but just this side of over-the-top. Thick dark brown head, serious coffee note (of course), great aroma, smooth bitter finish with a nice touch of mollasses on the end. This beer has an interesting viscosity to it. Sampled from teh bottle @ 57.5F.

RATED 99 @ ratebeer.com

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.
