A - Typical stout pour - pitch black with a caramel colored creamy, foamy head with sticky lacing.

S - Espresso, coffee, dark bitter chocolate and some cream.

T - Follows the nose with creamy cocoa beans and bitter chocolate malt up front before the coffee/espresso bitterness settles in midway through and sticks around through the finish. There is some roastiness to the malt and the bitterness lingers in the form of a creamy coffee bean.

M - Lighter side of medium.

O - Not bad and sits in the middle of the stout pecking order.

Hitachino Nest Espresso Stout has a thick, creamy, beige head, a very dark brown appearance, and pretty good lacing left behind. The aroma is of heavily roasted barley malt, dark coffee, faint chocolate, and black cherries. Taste is of acidic, sour, dark-roasted malt, black coffee, cherries, and some chocolate. Mouthfeel is mostly heavy and syrupy, and Hitachino Nest Espresso Stout finishes rich, sweet, charred, and dry. Overall, this is an interesting and well-made flavored beer. I score it most excellent.
