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.
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.
