Split Stout by Elysian

Rating: 4.75/5

Split Stout by Elysian is a 5.6% ABV Espresso Milk Stout. This is equivalent to a strong Starbucks Frappucino if only it had more coffee in it. LOL Espresso Frap. Or well, just some really nice Starbucks coffee in general, puro fancy 😛

Label:

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. 

One of the major components when I started to smell this beer is ….coffee….lots more coffee. The bitterness is not that of a smoked or roasted malts but of actual coffee grounds. Like that of a Rich Colombian beans. Flavors of the Espresso dark coffee adding milk chocolate, mocha, caramel, sweet cream, oatmeal, toffee, Irish cream, Steamed Milk and peanut butter. This is truly a Wake-Me Up Caffeine Coffee Beer. More emphasize on the coffee here but in this awesome sweet and coffee grind bitter way. Unlike other Chocolate / Coffee stouts as they are not just about smokey bitterness but about the coffee or the chocolate. Choklat= Chocolate, Split Stout = Coffee. With that said, Coffee Lovers and Stout lovers will surely like this.
