Hitachino Nest Espresso Stout
Brewery: Kiuchi Brewery, Ibaraki
Style: Espresso Stout
Format: 330ml Bottle
Caramel, roasted, black and chocolate malts provide an explosion of coffee like flavours. 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 colour, big brown head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted bitterness, black currants, dark fruits.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
coffee and stout...what else do you need?
its quite a "headie" beer, nice imperial style stout, with a big coffee flavour.
Good match of stout & espresso
Flavours work well together without the espresso dominating
