4 shots of espresso will not affect the flavor of 5 gallons of beer! it's a wonderful stout on its own, though, and it ages well (my batch has been bottled for 9 months and it keeps getting better). if you want the coffee flavor, i would recommend adding cracked coffee beans to your secondary, and don't be shy about it! 0.5 lb would be good, in my estimation. my problem with this one is that i was shy (or apprehensive) about the coffee.
