This smooth, creamy stout and a crackling fireplace are the perfect answer to a wintry evening in Wisconsin. The rich coffee flavor compliments the "warm, fuzzy feeling" you get from the abundant alcohol. Formerly a winter seasonal, named Satin Solstice.

Bottle at Lincoln Wine Bar. Pours deep blackwith a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt--a bit of burnt toast. Breadish and chocolate. Bitter and roasted malty finish. A little syrupy in the finish, but nice roasted chocolate malty brew.

A decent enough stout, but I've definitely had better. Was a little thin and one dimensional. Good not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ajnepple (2084) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2014
12 oz bottle purchased at John’s Grocery and poured into a snifter at home. Black appearance with a light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark fruits, licorice, molasses, chocolate, caramel, and earthy hops. Similar flavor, strong, dark and rich, medium sweetness, mild bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation, kind of dry with a light bitter finish.

first offering from central waters, this is a solid brew it doesnt have the thick rich body stouts normally do but it still has a roasty/ slightly chocolate taste in many stouts. it is quite insanely drinkable and would not be too hard to take down a 6 pack despite its 7.5%abv

bbrock81 (304) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - MAR 25, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Not bad as a beer in general, but not a good imperial stout at all. Weak for even a standard stout, much less imperial. Generic weak roasted aroma and flavor, with little to distinguish it from any other stout. No discernible bitterness or hops, no specific malty notes, just nothing. Generic and not worth purchasing.

Dfonorow (1394) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2014
On tap at The Chicago Beer Festival 2014. Pour is black with a small tan head. Aroma of faint cocoa and roasted malts. Flavor is similar - coffee roast, light chocolate, peat. Finish and mouth-feel are thin and creamy.

uckelman (256) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2014
Pours chocolate brown, opaque. Not much head. Aroma is hickory wood, coffee, chocolate. Texture is a bit oily, dry finish. Maybe a bit more carbonation than a stout should have. Medium bitter.

sarauckelman (173) - Heidelberg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2014
Pours deep brown, almost black. Little head. Strong aroma of molasses with hints of coffee. Taste is bitter coffee and smoke. Palate is bit oily and astringent, and it’s a bit overcarbonated.
