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.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Evangelion2014 (13) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Smell is chocolate and a pinch of smoke, pours a dark brown with hints of red peeking out in the light with a somewhat thick head. Body is a bit thin for an imperial, but slick and silky. Tastes more like a heavy porter than an imperial stout, cocoa powder, a sour twang and some roasted malts. Prety tasty and drinkable, but kinda thin for an imperial stout. Pretty good session beer if you want something with enough flavor not to wilt away though.

From Mar 2008 I got this in a trade with Grizzly Adams. Thanks Cole! The pour reveals a near pitch black liquid with about an inch of tannish foam with some fine lacing. The foam all but disappears after a few minutes. The smell has notes of roasted malt, toffee, chocolate, coffee, and some dark fruit. Over all, it smells like it's going to be relly sweet. The taste starts off with good roasted malt and coffee and then some toffee and chocolate. There's some bitterness mid palate that becomes more noticeable after a few sips and it dominates the finish. A nice medium mouthfeel helps make this a fine RIS to sip on but I think the alcohol is more apparent than the abv would indicate. That's not a slam because I do think it's a very tasty and easy drinking example of the style. I'm glad I got to try it.

12-ounce bottle pours dark brown-black with a spritz of tan head and lacing. Aroma: prune juice, dark chocolate-covered sour cherries, black coffee. Flavor: the above, with milk chocolate, raisins, figs, dates, and a warming booze burn at the back. Mouthfeel: medium- to full-bodied. A bit too thin and watery for an imperial stout, yet certainly tasty.

Bottle. As satin solstice. So probably a tad old. Pours dark brown and hard to get a head. Aroma is Sherry oxidation. Vinous. Light licorice. Tart. Ooooh. Moderately acetic and acidic. Not good. Thin. Burning. No. Bad bottle. Bad.

This one disappointed me. Central Waters produces some very good brews but this is not one of them in my opinion. Much to thin and weak for a stout...they can do much better than this.

Best beer I’ve found in the US. I discovered it quite by accident and have been consuming for several months now. However, I’ve gained quite of bit of weight since I discovered so am wondering....HOW MANY CALORIES IN A BOTTLE OF SATIN SOLITUDE??

Draft. Aroma of plum. Lots of plum in the flavor, also some chocolate, raisin and a kind of juicy sweetness. Must be some oats in the malt bill, as this is a bit seaweedy. Nice but hardly imperial in abv, so not rating it as one. Were I too, it would suffer mightily.

George999 (466) - Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2016
Bottle, the pour is dark brown with light barely penetrating, the head is caramel brown and medium thick and creamy. The aroma is coffee, and coco nibs. The taste is milk chocolate, smooth and a beautiful stout. The mouthfeel is medium thick.
