Espresso stout appears a dark brown color with at least an inch of dense lingering ecru foam. Aromas and flavors are dominated by notes of rich roasted grains, dark coffee, beans, bittersweet chocolate, mocha, cocoa and caramel. Maybe a notch better than medium in body and adequately carbonated for style.
This dark, Imperial Stout from Kiuchi Brewery appears an almost midnight-black, onyx brown color with a dense, lingering head. Both the aroma and flavor of Hitachino Nest Espresso Stout are overruled by notes of roasted coffee beans, grains, dark chocolates, and cocoa. It has a pleasant roastiness which rolls onto the tongue nice and smooth.
