O’hare’s Beer Club February 2014 Box
From Elysian Brewing out of Seattle Washington USA comes the “Split Shot Espresso Milk Stout”. This is the 2014 edition of the beer. The beer pours a dark brown/black colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of roasted coffee, chocolate and some hops bitterness. The flavour is of roasted malts, chocolate, espresso, lactose and hops bitterness. This beer had a surprisingly thin body. The alcohol content comes in at 5.6% with an IBU of 35. This was a very pleasing stout and well worth the pickup.
Food Pairing according to O’hare’s Beer Club notes are as follows: Cream Puffs
Commercial Description: Split Shot Espresso Milk Stout combines the talents of Elysian Brewing and Stumptown Coffee in a deliciously smooth, very Northwest beer
