COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the 3rd. Collaboration Brew from this year’s European Tour Series, and was developed with Amager Brewery in Copenhagen, Denmark. At 7.8% abv, it is rich, hoppy and balanced. Frog Hops is made with an abundance of English and German malts, including the super-tasty German chocolate malt! And it is hopped with select American hops, including dry-hopping.

0,65 l bomber, courtesy of Balazs, bought at DeMolen.
Another craziness from two unbelievable craft breweries...Poured like rock oil with a small but creamy beige head. Aroma and taste of dark chocolate and cocoa, some lurking bananas and lactic acid, burnt wood and roasted grains. Dry aftertaste. Yumm!

_angst_ (2370) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2013
Bomber bought @ Olbutikken after Emma requested something with chocolate. Pours oily pitch black with a small dark mocha head that quickly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is slightly sweet and malty with roasted malts, moist wood, bitter chocolate, dark roast coffee, pine needles, resin, burnt cookies, crackers, salty licorice candy and caramel. Taste is tiny sweet, very bitter and malty with roasted malts, caramel, burnt cookies, resin, pine cones, grapefruit rinds, crackers, bitter chocolate, dark roast coffee, sweet licorice candy, moist soil and moist wood. Mouthfeel is tiny round, creamy, astringent and medium bodied. Finish is bitter and malty with roasted malts, caramel, burnt cookies, bitter chocolate, dark roast coffee, resin and moist wood. Quite good but not entirely there…

22 ounce bottle poured into my Hoppin frog snifter. Pours a thick, viscous black with a dark khaki colored head of foam in a ring around the edge of the glass. The aroma has a musky licorice and bitter dark chocolate with hints at fresh fennel and earthy hops. Taste is more licorice and fennel. Musky dryness that dominates the finish and drags is out to make this one to savor. Thicker mouthfeel, but not quite as robust as some imperial stouts can get.

jesperhammer (2646) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2013
22-JUL-2013, bottle @home, from Řlbutikken. Black with lasting, lacing, brown head. Roasted with coffee and chocolate. Loads of hops. Taset the same with a minty note as well. Grape fruit, pine. Very creamy, medium carbonation. Not a huge monster of an Imperial Stout but a very smooth and delicious one.

Very dark beer with a foamy brown head. Rich chocolaty nose and a nice soft mouthfeel. The flavors include lots of chocolate, brown sugar, toasted white bread, roasted grains and a raw green hop pellet hint. Very flavorful Impy Stout softened nicely by the wheat.

22 oz bottle shared with drsordr. Pours a dark brown to black color with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma has roasted malt, dark chocolate, black coffee that my friend described as Folgers, earthy and grassy hops with a hint of resin. The flavor has much of the same with some wheat character and a lighter body than most imperial stouts.

Ughsmash (7005) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Bomber. Poured inky, near black with a sticky dark brown head. The aroma picked up near-burnt chocolate and toasted wheaty notes with lots of fresh herbal and grassy hops around. The flavor was very bitter and roasty on the tip of the tongue, with roasty chocolate and toasted wheaty notes behind.. finished with a lot more fresh hops and roast. Medium-bodied and too roasty for me on the palate.. OK, but not great.
