Beer: Hitachino Nest Espresso Stout
Brewed: Kiuchi Brewery, Ibaraki, Japan
Alcohol Content: 330mL
Sourced: Tokyo, Japan (thanks to Martin Sturgeon)
World Beer Rating: 10/10
Notes: I couldn’t believe I got the opportunity to drink this one! Rated 98.89% on RateBeer.com, it’s Japan’s highest rated beer and very hard to get. I can see why; this stout is absolutely amazing! Coffee and chocolate, burnt malt with a bitter taste – this one is hands down the best Japanese beer I’ve ever had and will probably ever get to drink.
