Only a year from now? What about the year after? And the year after that? To build any kind of impressive strength or size takes much longer than year.

If you are completely untrained, yes. You have no idea how to lift. SS will have you focus on becoming proficient with a few basic barbell exercises that you will be doing, or doing variations of, for the rest of your lifting life.
It will build muscle, if you are eating correctly. You will also outgrow the program relatively quickly, if you actually are consistent and follow the prescribed workout-to-workout progression. But it's a fantastic starting point, IMHO.
