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.

12 oz bottle via trade with the Epeeist. Pours a dark brownish black color with a thick foamy brownish beige head. Aroma of roasted coffee beans, rich chocolate, toffee and smoked molasses. Taste is of rich creamy dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans,creamy malts,and toffee with a smoked finish. Excellent !!

12oz bottle-A dark black body with a nice tan head which has an aroma of chocolate, dark malt, and coffee. Taste the same as aroma with more of the malt and coffee flavors. Great tasting imperial stout.

From a 12oz Bottle. Pours a dark black color with some faint fuby transparent hues and a well sustaining head of sudsy light tan. Soft aromas of gentle chocolate and a touch of prune. A bit of alcohol heat lingers in the nose, aong with some mild roast coffee and english toffee characters. Medium bodied, effervescent mouthfeel. A light raisiny fruitiness starts out the palate with some faint notes of roast coffee. Almost some musty charred leather characters and burned chocolate in there as well. Funky finish that isn’t really off, but just seems overly tannic, grainy, and harsh all at the same time. Finishes with a charred meatiness and herbal euro hop smack. Thanks, Tom!

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - FEB 14, 2007
12oz, no date. Pours a dark brown--black in the glass with a two finger beige head. Aroma of big roasted malts almost to the point of being burned, bitter chocolate, charred wood--though not really smoky, molasses, some acidity, and digging deep a hint of vanilla and raisins. Roasty coffee acidity up front in flavor followed by an alcoholic vinous characteristic, and molasses into a bitter chocolate ashy roast dry finish. This tasted stronger than 7.5% in the mouth, moderate fairly smooth carbonation and a medium body. Not too shabby overall, but not great, either.

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Bottle from 1FastSTi. Dak brown with small lacing type head. Molases,vanilla,coco,and coffee is the taste and aroma of this beer. The body is medium and the carbonation is minimal. Real easy to drink. Reminds me of the new FF Espresso Porter.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JAN 23, 2007
One year old bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a large, creamy tan head, lasting, nice lacing. The aroma is loaded with dark chocolate, fairly vinous with hints of vanilla and molases. The flavor is relatively dry, bakers chocolate, molases, slightly acidic coffee and dark fruits. Medium body, relatively light in the mouth for an IS, soft carbonation and a bitter, slightly astringent finish.

Nuffield (4083) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2006
A little thin on the edges; dark brown & ruby. Chocolate, coffee, coke, smoke. Thin body, watery. Merely adequate as an Impy.
