In a collaboration with Fanø Brewery on Fano Island in Denmark, we created an Imperial Stout recipe to satisfy our own deepest desires. Brewing it on this picturesque summertime vacation island is how Natasha started, and of course we couldn’t wait to brew it at Hoppin’ Frog! The result is Natasha Rocks America - a rich, hoppy Imperial Stout with the deep-roasted, smooth flavor of Chocolate Rye malt. And, Natasha is generously dry-hopped with the perfect mix of select American hops, adding a great hop character to this super-tasty Imperial Stout collaboration brew.

ClubGonzo (5225) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours an onyx black body with a medium creamy beige head. Nose is dark chocolate, coffee, dark berries, pine, rye and hints of grass and sweet grains. Quite lovely actually, and there is something about this aroma that brings me back to the very first big stouts and porters I smelled, around the time I started to get really interested in beer. :-) Oh well, reminiscing aside: the taste is also rather nice: dark chocolate up front, then creamy licorice tones mixed with leather, fading into coffee, dry grass and hints of rye, herbs and mocha towards the finish. Full, creamy body, medium carbonation which fits perfectly to this kind of beer. The balance, both in aroma and taste, is as classic American craft stout as it is finely tuned. A real treat and a real surprise; this is by far the best beer I’ve tasted from both Hoppin’ Frog and Fanø. Maybe even combined. :-)
