COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

650ml bottle @ RIP Camp

Pours pitch black with a small light brown head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, rye, roastiness, fruity hops, syrup and coffee. Taste is a bit messy with mix of roastiness, sweet fruity notes, fruity hops, rye and berries. Finish is roasty and stingy fruity with notes of rye, berries, chocolate and syrup. Strange and quite unbalanced taste. Nowhere nearly as good as the Fanø’s version.

65 cl bottle @ RIP Camp.
Pours jet black color with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, rye, some hops, caramel and chocolate. Flavor of chocolate, rye, some oat, cocoa, roasted malts and resinous hops, faint vanilla and distant fruity notes also. Somewhat bitter malty palate. A bit messy, harsh taste.

Bottle at home. Black pour, thin tan head. Aroma is roasted, spicy, some wood, rye and ash. Flavor is bitter, roasted, quite spicy and slightly alcoholic. Decent body and a bit rough, but well drinkable.

Bomber. Pours a nice black with a thick khaki head that leaves an incredible lace on the glass. The aroma is very hoppy on the immediate nose, with a strong chocolate finish and a good amount of roasted malt. The taste is in an opposite order. The beginning is a nice roasted chocolate on the front end, that fades into a little rye spiciness. The finish is a little dry, but it's a solid stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black pour with a brown head. Aroma is hops with a little rye in the background. Toast is roasted malt, rye, hops, a little sweetness. Roasted malt aftertaste. Great lacing. A little weak in alcohol for an Imperial in my opinion.

Bottle @ Ølkonsortiet, Aalborg. Pours black with a small creamy head and lacings. Nose and flavors are roast, coffee, chocolate, rye and hops. Bitter flavor and finish from both hops and roasted malts. Tasty uncomplicated stuff.

22oz bottle shared by Brett, with Colleen. If you ever wanted a "too much going on" but still hits all the good notes type of beer, this is it.. nose is chocolate and hops mixed, followed by a taste which yields spicy rye notes, finishing with sweeter chocolate notes and lingering hop bitterness... totally out there, but cool idea. pour is pitch black with a milk chocolate head.

Theydon_Bois (10351) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2013, 10/08/13. Light black with an adequate light tan covering. Nose is light roast, cocoa, tropical fruits, hoppy backbone. Taste comprises light roast, chocolate, dark malt, grapefruit, good dose of hops. Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, dry finish. Good stuff but not top draw for the impy category.
