Grabbed this stout at Fathead's Saloon, I enjoyed this stout. A Nice dark brown/black appearance with a sweet smell. Tasted great! I could really taste the Espresso, it wasn't super overpowering, which made it great. It was light for a stout, but still tasted good.

Serving type: on-tap

Very dark, near black. Off white head and lacing that provides a nice contrast to the beer.

Strange smell. Almost vegetal like celery. Espresso becomes apparent as it warms.

Tastes like an iced latte. Sweetness comes out more as it warms. I actually prefer this stout colder.

Mouthfeel is a little light for a stout, but not bad.

Good coffee stout, but not great.

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!

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!
