4.8/5 rDev +22.1%
Deep mahogany color light comes through on the edge with a nice big fat tan head
Smell is chocolatey coffee with dark and milk chocolate both very roasty notes
Taste is all mocha and it's freakin delicious totally creamy taste and the espresso and chocolate flavors meld fantastically together
Mouth feel is full and Cream lots if body without feeling too heavy just the right amount that says you drank a real Beer
Overall outstanding beer that I'd love to have again

When I first tasted Split Shot, I thought, "Now here's a brew for the espresso lover!" It is a perfect "dessert" stout, delicious served by itself, or with just about any sweet treat, particularly chocolate. It is the ideal post prandial brew, not a bit of bitterness, just rich, creamy, silky smooth, eminently quaffable, but why hurry? This is a brew to be sipped and savored until the very last drop. In the future Split Shot will be my brew of choice following a meal, and am looking forward to making ice cream floats with it in the summer!

Elysian Split Shot
Appearance: Looked beautiful in the glass, rich and dark with a minimal, creamy off-white head.
Aroma: It's called an espresso stout for a reason...smells like coffee, which I love. Maybe a hint of a dark chocolate.
Taste: Really good coffee flavor but without being too bitter. I actually thought of those cans of cold Starbucks espresso you can buy. I loved it.
Mouthfeel: I thought this was very robust and creamy on the tongue and left a nice pleasant aftertaste.
Overall: I could drink this beer all night long as it's rich without being heavy and it isn't too high in terms of ABV.

Poured into fluted snifter; dark, no light shows through, with a fluffy light tan head that dissipates quickly leaving scattered lacing and a thick ring of foam.
Smell is all coffee...huge espresso, hint of creamy sweetness. Some roasted malt hiding behind the coffee.
Taste is like coffee...it's like a cup of strong black coffee with the mouthfeel of a belgian quad and a wet, off-sweet finish. Tastes like espresso with cream.
Mouthfeel is fluffy, reasonably thick and clings to the mouth.
Overall, delicious. One of those coffee beers that is excellent at imitating coffee, and the lactose helps add some body and sweetness. Love it!
