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.

Blackened brown tone with a smallish cap of dark tanned froth. Keeps a lighter shade of brown once fading to a light skim and collar. Very small, dotty lacing sticks as most of it runs back in. Aroma is of soft bakers chocolate and oatmeal cookies with a slight burnt edge to it. Taste is good with a nice flow of chocolate and oatmeal sweetness. Well rounded and fairly bold and lengthy. Finish is complex with burnt notes, piney hops, mango, yes, mango, slight peppery spices, and a roasted dryness emerging late with that of which is coffee-like. Slight chocolate dryness is evident as well along parts of the finish. Great finish to this one. Feel is bold and quite full with a nice mild, dark sweetness of oats and chocolate as it has a unique warming texture thats a bit fluffy yet slick and creamy. Whoa, this is some quickly drinkin’ dark stuff. Gone in no time flat. And at only 7.5% for an Impy stout, you’ll be reaching for more, bottle after bottle. A solid treat out of Wisconsin.

bottle - Licorice and molasses in the aroma. Black in color with a thin head that was quickly gone. Taste was sweet, somewhat caramel, with notes of licorice and bitter chocholate. Palate was a little thin for a stout. Overall a really nice beer.

Creamy, smooth, roasty, not too bitter, despite a bit of tobacco. This is what they re-brew into bourbon barrel stout which is one of my very top favorites. This has less carbonation and choclate than the re-brew which has complimentary alcohol bite.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - JUN 18, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2006 Rich coffee aroma and flavor. Light creamy, chocolatey texture and silky smooth going down, like chocolate milk. This is an excellent dessert beer.

Opaque appearance, somewhat large head. Semisweet aroma, dark, coffeelike taste. Very smooth. An excellent stout

Ungstrup (38141) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2006
A slightly hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of berries and chocolate as well as lighlty roasted notes on a slightly acidic back ground. The flavor is sweet and very roasted combined with a light touch of chocolate.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Philip! Thanks! Dark brown pour that lets some light through, with a rocky beige head, that looks like swirls. Aroma is strong tobacco with roasted espresso beans, dark chocolate, and a hint of mint. Good lacing is still present after 10 minutes. Tates like liquid bitter dark chocolate, with a strong coffee presence, and tobacco smoke with sweetness rounding it out. Silky and smooth, just the way I like my stouts. The alcohol is not detectable at all, but this one is still a sipper due to it’s rich tobacco and espresso components. I’d say its a good example of what seems to be a stout bordering on an impy, but lacks the subtleties of a regular stout. Well done.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2006
Deep brown colour with a light brown head. Light roasted malty aroma with some chocolate and coffee notes. Roasted malty flavor with some coffee bitterness and a light chocolate sweetness. Finish has a faint liqourice note.
