Elysian Brewing Company Spilt Shot Espresso Milk Stout

Split Shot from Elysian Brewing Company is an espresso Milk Stout. It has Lactose and Stumptown Coffee. This beer form in Seattle, Washington. It is 6% ABV. You can probably see the entire top of the beer can is gone. A product called Dtafttop (http://www.draftTop.com) was sent to me. Drafttop is a cutting device that can turn any drink can into a drinking glass. It works by lining it up with the pull tab, then rotating it counterclockwise, allowing the Drafttop to lock the pull tab. Then you turn it clockwise as you press in on the sides of the Drafttop, which cuts into the can top. Then after about one and a half clockwise rotations, you have successfully removed the top of the can. This product is a neat little novelty item, is a conversation starter, and works well when you read the instructions. Split Shot pours a black color with a two-finger cream tan head. The aroma is sweet, with coffee notes, roasted, and some bitterness. The taste is sweet with roasted coffee. The scent of this beer is also creamy, sweet, and smooth. The mouthfeel is full but not heavy. It does coat the mouth. Then it has a nice sweet roasted finish with a smooth coffee aftertaste. There is a tiny bitter note in the aftertaste. This beer is a good coffee milk stout. I give Spilt Shot an A-. I like more of a roasted coffee flavor on these types of beer, and Split Shot had a nice average coffee roast flavor. It was good, but I’d like a little more. Overall it was good, and yes, I would recommend it. Please stay safe, be kind, and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
