"Hitachino Nest Espresso Stout stems from a Russian Imperial Stout as a base with the addition of whole espresso beans to the boil. Saphir & Northern Brewer hops are used. Pitch black color, big brown head with aromas of chocolate, roasted bitterness, black currants, dark fruits. The flavor tastes of caramel and chocolate malts providing an explosion of coffee like flavors. Smooth and slightly bitter finish."
