Hitachino Nest Espresso Stout
by Kiuchi Brewery (brewery website)
Origin: Japan – Type: Stout – Alcohol: 7%
The beer: Hitachino Nest Espresso Stout has an excellent smell full of roasted coffee and chocolate. An excellent Russian Imperial Stout, well balanced with a very nice caramelized after taste along with Mocha flavour. I knew that the Japanese had a real story with coffee (“Ain’t no Blue Montain high enough” article on Ethical Nippon) but I have to say that you can really experience the craft roasting of the coffee beans: this beer is an espresso Bomb!
The little extra: If you like Espresso and Stout beers, this one has been brewed for you!
