COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pitch black with high carbonation and a filmy brown head and good lacing. Aroma of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, vanilla,roasted barley & malts and faint hops. Flavor is chocolate & coffee forward with vanilla, roasted barley, and a slight oakiness. Aftertaste is a bittersweet chocolate finish. Body is moderate but the carbonation is rather strong for the style. Body issues aside, this is a good beer!

Dark brown. Aroma of boozy coffee and dark fruit. Smooth, roasted, some coffee and some warming. A good big stout, but drinkable enough to be casual. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
