3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, booze, chocolate, toasted malt. Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, nougat, booze, bitter hops. Hot, but not terribly overpowering. Not too sweet at all- rather complex and fairly bitter/hoppy for an impy. Well done- I have not enjoyed imperial stouts much recently but this one intrigues me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice above average stout. The scent is primarily roasted malts. The Anastasia has coffee and cocco notes that show up more as the beverage warms. The flavor is mainly roasted malts. This drink is mildly bitter. Overall this is a nice drink to relax with and it wont hurt the palate. Congrats Weasel Boy on gold it’s well deserving.
