Hitachino Espresso Imperial Stout
Espresso Stout by the Japanese brewery Hitachino pours jet-black with a sumptuous beige head. This characterful beer owes its strong personality to the coffee beans added during boiling. Its nose combines bold aromas of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, coffee and herbs. The palate is markedly bitter-sweet, with coffee, dark-roast malt, vanilla, herbs, chocolate and dried fruits. This is a well-balanced beer with a slick, lightly-carbonated body, that conspire to give a dry, slightly bitter finish.
