Though I dont have the refenence at work (shhh..)
A Espen is a full brewers spoon,  I would think
a wooden spoon about 3 - 4 ft long with a 
proportional size spoon depression.

The would be big enough to stir with and 
a decent amount of loose hops (at the 
most an oz) to provide a bit of bittering 
and such.

A vetern of making Gervase Markam Strong Ale 
(and its great!!)
