superspak (5125) - Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2017
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/14/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy nearly opaque dark brown color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big nutty medium roast coffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, vanilla, cream, brown sugar, toasted oats, brown bread, light herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and coffee notes; with great strength. Taste of big nutty medium roast coffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, vanilla, cream, brown sugar, toasted oats, brown bread, light herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of nutty coffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, vanilla, cream, brown sugar, toasted oats, brown bread,and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and coffee flavors; with a nice roasted bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Slightly drying from hop/roast bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is a great coffee milk stout! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and coffee flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. Really rich with a great mouthfeel for the modest ABV; with well rounded milk stout complexity all around. A really enjoyable offering.

Coffee and stout pairings are becoming common as sin, but you expect great things when the hybrid in question comes from Seattle. And you would be right to expect greatness. Split Shot has lots of bright, roasty, bitter, and earthy espresso. Theres just a touch of cream and theres some dark chocolate malt. Rich, viscous mouthfeel. Its a damn good choice for Sunday breakfast beer.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Rich roasted malts and coffee, some black patent malts, espresso, and a nice roasted coffee finish. Pretty good.

Mrnoluv (332) - long beach, California, USA - FEB 11, 2017
The smell is lactose, a little cinnamon, vanilla, cocoa/coffee bean, good co2, it has that milky feel, not overly sweet or bitter, very even mellow tastes. Low ABV makes this a very smooth dinner beer.

Popoff91 (124) - Oregon, USA - JAN 25, 2017
ABV was listed as 6% on the bottle so this may have been a newer edition of the beer. This was absolutely fantastic. Has a little more coffee and cream flavor than the average stout, and the mouthfeel was creamier as well. Best beer I have ever had.
