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.

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.

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 Ive found in the US. I discovered it quite by accident and have been consuming for several months now. However, Ive 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.

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.

Very dark brown color, cloudy, with synapses shaped small head. Dusty bread aroma. Dark malts flavor, nutty, dusty, a bit of dry chocolate.
Nothing impressive, not even a real Imperial Stout.

Bottle - Cocoa and toffeee notes. Cloudy Amber with a small beige head. Toast and some cocoa with a long toasted bread finish. Lots of toast. Light for the style.

12 oz. bottle, pours a dark brown with a reddish tinge and a small beige head -- not even a close-to-black colour for an impie stout. Aroma brings out winter spices upfront, with light toasted malt. Flavour doesnt seem like an impie stout at all, but more like an earthy winter warmer, with toasted caramel, and a touch of cocoa. Again, doesnt seem like an impie stout at all, just a strong winter warmer; and as such, its quite solid.

trapped (2478) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 15, 2016
Draught. Opaque dark brown with medium sized creamy beige head, faint roasted malt aroma, low carbonation, initially sweet taste turning bitter with roasted malt flavor, bit of berries, smooth body, medium bitter roasted finish with alcohol aftertaste. The alcohol aftertaste is a bit strong but still nice.

Mildly opaque reddish brown with a minimal tan head. Some darker berries, coffee, caramel. A decent bit bitter, plenty of sweetness, but dry through the finish. Heavier body, some carbonation, reasonably long finish. Quite oily. Good.
