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.

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 (5047) - 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 (1762) - 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.

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.

Pours dark chocolate with a tobacco stained head. First pass at aroma was a bit sour, but as it warmed, there are notes of coffee, toffee and chocolate. The flavor is a lovely blend of coffee, chocolate, molasses and malt with a hint of a bite to finish. The palette is lighter than expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at MKT. Right off the bat I dig this. Espresso, hazelnut, perfect sweetness, milkish, medium roast, light fruit, smooth chocolate, creamy feel and bitterness that you forget about. Quick review might not do this justice.

Lizardking3 (192) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - APR 22, 2015
Pours dark black with creamy tan head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, licorice root, vanilla. Taste is massively coffee all around, as if the grounds were in your mouth. Chocolate and root beer in the middle of the mouth, with vanilla and hop finish. This is good, but for a stout with lactose, it definitely lacks a velvety thick mouthfeel, and is a bit light on the booziness.
