Poured deep black with a thin medium brown lacing of head. Aroma was soft chocolate with a hint of smokiness. The mouthfeel was fairly prickly in carbonation, but this isn’t a complaint seeing as how some find most imp stouts to be too "flat". There was a silkiness in the sip that made me think of many oatmeal stouts. It was silky smooth, but not creamy, if that makes sense. The flavor was roasted cocoa and dark fruits, with a hint of Irish Car Bomb flavor (sweet coffee cream like in Bailey’s, a woodsy bite reminiscent of a nice whiskey). Not nearly as intense as a Bell’s Expedition, but definitely an imperial stout that I’d recommend to anyone.
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. rosskyle (735) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2017
12oz bottle. Sweet coffee dark choc malt aroma. Malt dark choc malt flavor. Heavy body.

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. gopherfan99 (1955) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Bottle; pours dark brown with a thin ring of beige head; aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee with hints of caramel and dark fruits; taste is slightly bittersweet with coffee and roasted malt with some light chocolate and caramel notes; finish is light bitter and roasty fuzzcro (295) - Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2016
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?? TylerGreenDC (984) - - NOV 26, 2016
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 (458) - 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. fiulijn (20604) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2016

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.
