The Hitachino Nest beers are the Japan-based Kiuchi Brewery's brand of ales. Brewed using some traditional Sake brewing methods since 1996, the Hitachino Nest beers are the proud holders of many international beer awards.
Espresso stouts are everywhere; it’s true. Yet a good one doesn’t try to hide its flaws with big flavours. Instead, each note is highlighted in what seems to be a choreographed dance. The Japanese Hitachino Nest Espresso Stout is one of the good ones.
Espresso beans are added during the brewing process so its intense coffee flavours and aromas are to be expected. Vanilla, dark fruits and chocolate round out the stout’s complex taste. Its rich and smooth mouthfeel make this beer truly indulgent.
