COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong, bold ale that’s as black as midnight with the sweet disposition of a ferret who’s just found a nice warm blanket to curl up in. With an alcohol percentage of near 9% ABV. Anastasia Russian Imperial Stout warms as it finds its way to the stomach. Best served above 55 degrees F.

LilBeerDoctor (3410) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2013
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. 7/4/8/4/15 (3.8/5)

Advocate_Ames (417) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2012
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.

GABF. Dark brown pour. Roast, chocolate, light coffee, plums in the nose. Flavor is roasty, chocolate, a hint of something tart, prunes, molasses. Barrel aged version was better IMO.
