Split-Shot by Elysian Brewing Company

Style? Milk stout with espresso added.

ABV? 6%

Appearance? Black, like your usual porter/stout. Khaki coloured head.

Smell? Combination of lightly toasted malts, faint notes of coffee, and a sugary sweetness.

Body? Medium/light. Tending towards the light side, but not thin.

Taste? Pretty light. Doesn’t offer a lot, to me. A blend of some roastiness and mild sweetness.

Overall? For me, it’s not the most challenging of stouts. I don’t feel there’s much depth of character. What’s there, is decent, and easily accessible. If you like stouts/porters, I suggest you try it and form your own opinion.
