Pours dark brown to black with a tan head. Aroma of coffee. Flavor of even more coffee.
Coffee and chocolate like a typical stout, but well-balanced flavors with some cola qualities. Bod is creamy, but somewhat watery and medium-lite in consistency, though this may be expected from the lower abv. Very "drinkable" for a stout. ironcontra (467) - ATL, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2017
tap. coffee, cocacola, chocolate, not over-the-top sweet which I respect, nice thick mf with just a bit of hop tartness there to round it out rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 26, 2017
bottle. Near black with one finger head. Medium malt body, lots of roast. Rather sweet. Espresso adds substantial coffee flavor. Smooth lactose. Dogbrick (13986) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2017
Sample at Daily Growler UA. The beer pours black with some brown around the edges, and a medium tan head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lace. Aroma of coffee, roast malt and chocolate. Light to medium body with flavors of roasted coffee, chocolate malt and a bit of fruit. The finish is roasty with a coffee and malt aftertaste. Pretty good overall. thekateperhaps (12) - - SEP 19, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2017 Such a smooth, creamy sipping experience. Would almost forget it was a beer if I wasn't drinking it out of the bottle! Coffee notes are solid and strong but not overpowering. A truly enjoyable drink.

Bottle: Dark with a tan frothy head and a band of sticky lacing. Coffee and malts with sugar. Thin feel with a bit of coffee bitterness. Quite tasty! PatrickYEG (74) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2017
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.

bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Solid aroma of lightly roasted malt with an earthy edge. Opaque brown-black color, deep tan head that sticks at a thin cover, hanging strands of lace. Taste is roasted malt that takes on a slightly bitter edge, mild carbonation, and then the addition of coffee with cream and brown sugar that turns back toward bitter in a long, satisfying finish. An exceptional brew. aaronmccalmont (7) - - AUG 11, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2017 Loved the roasty flavors in this stout with the subtle sweetness. One of my favorite coffee stouts by Elysian. Evolutionary (529) - Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2017
Tap at mellow mushroom na. Pour is dark and thick with good head. Good head is the best.
Coffee and mild nut smokiness. More sugar than needed but a good stout - bit of milk stout in there too.
