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!
