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.

On tap @ The Beer Junction. Nitro. High drinkability. Very nice, almost comforting, espresso taste with a solid stout to back it up. Not an overwhelming bitter taste, yet enough to compliment the robust malt sweetness and coffee finish. Fantabox

Bottle: Dark brown with a tan cap, decent lacing throughout. The nose is seductive with coffee and cocoa. The amount of roast is just right and the quality of the coffee is not lost. The same translates to the taste; the quality of the coffee is strongly evident. A nice amount of roast and light sweetness. Think rich espresso with a light cream. No bitters to speak of. The only detriment, imo, is the body being a little thin. It misses the creaminess of the taste, if that makes sense. A minor gripe; overall this is very well done.

Lagerboy (1412) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2015
Bomber. Clear ruby hued dark brown, huge tan foam head slowly settles and lasts. Muted coffee chocolate aroma. Much too fizzy, lighter roast coffee taste with too much expired creamo, some milky sweet chocolate. Lively carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. Just drinkable, hardly enjoyable. Ab-Inbev couldn’t have wrecked this allready, could they?!? NFL (Not for Lagerboys)

mjg74 (2606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle from Safeway. Slick black in color. Nose is pretty much pure roasted coffee, with a dash of sweetness. Roasty coffee up front, going into a bit of sugary sweetness. A little bitter roastiness as well. Lightly bitter finish. Pretty tasty coffee stout.

raindogs (9) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015 does not count
Dry finish, plenty of length with perfect carbonation. Slight milky tinge but good dry coffee hoppy aftertaste.

This was putrid. Nasty milky stale coffee tasting watery stout. Probably the worst stout I ever had.

monk191 (1179) - California, USA - FEB 14, 2015
An average stout overall. Pours a nice brown black with a tan head. Smells of espresso and milk. Taste is smooth but unremarkable, and a bit watery in the end. Had in the bottle.

DuffMan (7227) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle, shared at game night by phantomhennes. Dark walnut brown pour, average light tan head. Big fresh coffee aroma, undertones of chocolate and caramel. Bold coffee flavor, dark and roasty, notes of chocolate and cream. A nicely balanced coffee stout.

patricks110 (1837) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
Pouring out a entirely opaque black in the body a dauntingy thick mass of tan mocha coloured head looms on top. The aroma is heavy with espresso and coffee notes swirling richly with creamy lactose notes. Heavily roasted with dark chocolate, anise seed and vanilla beans aromas mixing in with the espresso and lactose notes. A rich and espresso heavy flavour with tons of roasted malts, complex coffee bean flavours with a mild fruity note. Mild vanilla in the front with dark chocolate and potent roasted notes. The finish is mildly bitter with a light dry astringency and a heavy espresso flavour. A fairly well balanced brew with a full body and a huge hit of espresso throughout

KansaiBeerLvrs (2593) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle shared by Brian. A dark brown with a light beige pour and a nice coffee & cream aroma. Medium-full bodied with a round carbonation. The taste is fairly average for a coffee stout, acrid dark malt, roast coffee and bit of sweetness. Decent.

Watered down coffee beer. Lite on the palate, coffee, carbonation, vanilla, malt. Not impressed, would not buy again
