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.

Transfer from BA review on 11-11-12- Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – The beer is served a deep-deep brown nearly black color. When served there was a big brown head on the brew that faded over a moderate amount of time to give a light level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is of a sweet coffee smell mixed with a good dose of milk chocolate. Behind these aromas is a roasted malt and light vanilla smell. Taste- The taste begins with a roasted malt and coffee flavor. Upfront it also has some sweet chocolate flavors as well. These sweeter flavors dwindle as the taste advances with the chocolate becoming more bitter and the flavors of coffee/espresso getting stronger. While near the end a quite sweet lactose taste comes to the tongue making the beer on the sweeter side and balancing out the bitter with more sweetness. In the end the flavors when mixed together leave a mocha cappuccino flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the creamier side with a carbonation level that is rather average. The creamier body is very nice for the flavors of the beer and really accentuates the dark chocolate, coffee and roasted flavors. Overall – A pretty tasty stout. With it not being too heavy, it having a creamier feel and nice sweeter finish it is quite pleasant to drink and a nice beer to sip after a meal.

Strykzone (4913) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Just a tiny bit of red in this black beer. The foam is very big and is tan in color. The aroma is roast, lactic, and chocolate. Pleasant. The flavor is all of that along with some early zingy hops. That settles into citrus fruit including orange. The feel was nice and smooth. This was a nice beer.

Draft at Towne Tavern. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Doesn’t leave any lacing. Slight coffee note on the nose. Nice blend of coffee, roasted malt, and lactose on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid!
