COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer and coffee are Seattle siblings, jealously dividing the day. Split Shot combines the talents of Elysian’s brewers with a pound per barrel of cold-infused, Seattle-produced Lighthouse coffee. It’ll open your eyes to a delicious new beer. Split Shot is the official beer of 2012 Seattle Beer Week.

Deep brown with off white head. Aroma is a very nice coffee, not really espresso..maybe it is, but its a nice coffee. Chocolate and coffee are very well balanced, the low abv makes this dangerously easy to drink. Really liked this one.

gramity (1573) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 11, 2015
Dark deep brown with a wee ruby highlight, under a thin light khaki head. Lovely creamy dark chocolate aroma with a coffee tone that’s not quite espresso but it’s earthy sweet and creamy for sure. Nice robust roast coffee and earthy roasty chocolate flavor with a full creamy flavor and body that hides the astringent earthy tones. Sweet and dark and creamy and coffeeish.

Capa (2307) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Black with a dark brown head. Sweet dark malts and coffee are the two notes I picked up in this one. It also has some vanilla in the background, rounding out the sweet malt. Full bodied. Pretty simple coffee stout but well made at the same time.

sulawang (722) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Visual: Pours dark cola brown with an INSANE amount of ultra creamy long-lasting root beer head, lots of micro steady streams around the perimeter. Nose: caramel malts with some chocolate and roasted coffee. (lvl-8)-pungency Attack: creamy-bubbly head, fizzy crisp tingly Mid-palate: continual fizzy-bloated, background light sourness, (lvl-6)-sweetness, (MAIN) milky chocolate, roast coffee, root beer, dark malt Finish: roasted exhale, burpy, light burnt bitterness, soft roasted finish. Summary: Good sweet roasted malt entry and clean finish. Overall satisfied but leaves you feeling a bit bloated due to the creaminess.

TimE (4112) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 16, 2015
Dark brown color. Light brown head. Massive espresso notes in the nose to the degree that malt character is suppressed. Not necessarily a bad thing IMO. Super smooth mouth that has ton of espresso, caramel and roasted malt notes. Slightly acidic. Super quaffable. Lingering espresso finish. Excellent.

Sevenlee (1566) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2015
Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is malt, chocolate, coffee, roasty and some hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a roasty and sweetish finish. Not bad.

Rae723 (11) - Calgary, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
AROMA: coffee, roasty, earthy, APPEARANCE: black, minimal head, TASTE: medium bitterness, PALATE: medium body, fizzy, bitter finish, OVERALL: As an avid coffee and a n avid beer drinker, I think this really brings about the best of both worlds. Its got the bitterness of a good cup of coffee, but the smooth fizzyness of a good beer. I think this is my favorite coffee stout that I have tasted.
