Anastasia Russian Imperial Stout brewed by Weasel Boy Brewing

Beer Review by Beer Advocate:
Appearance: Black, huge creamy head, easily the biggest head I've ever seen in a beer. Some thick lacing.

Smell: Mocha chocolate aromas, sugar, some bitter coffee.

Taste: Upfront bitterness, roasty taste. More chocolate as it goes down. Beautiful sweetness/creaminess.

Mouthfeel: Perfect carbonation, medium body. "Feels just right". Very well balanced, full flavor.

Drinkability: Easy. Despite the 8.8% ABV, Anastasia drinks fine. Could be sessioned/chugged! Very smooth and creamy. One of the most delicious and balanced RIS I have tried. Too bad it is so hard to get.
