COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In a collaboration with Fanř 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.

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 (10571) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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.

Deep black pour with a thin foamy khaki head. Aroma is very hopped, like a hop cooler at a brewery in terms of aroma--so much hop profile going on, from spicy grassy to juicy grapefruit and floral grassy--but also a deep roastiness with a a nutty undertone, and the slightest hint of java. Flavor is large and bold, though not syrupy like I feared. Lots of stout roastiness and hop bitterness, almost like a BIPA, until the middle and finish when in comes a bittersweet cocoa tone, with morning rye toast and a kiss of roasty coffee. Not too bitter, but that’s probably well hidden by the roastiness and darkness..because there’s a ton of hop flavor, like on the nose. Floral, grassy, earthy, citrusy, piney...It’s like a great IPA mixed with a great stout.

ogreface (1375) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 31, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2013 Mi lehetne más, mint teljesen fekete szín, vékony krémes barna habbal. Illata olyan, mintha egy száraz kakaóport tartalmazó zsákba szagolnánk, amihez adtak egy szép adag rumos meggyet . Íze aszalt meggy, szilva, kakaóbab, sötét gyümölcsös, tonna komló, vanília, fás fanyarság, fekete csoki. Teste nem nehéz, inkább játékos. Utóíze keseredés, kakaós, kissé fanyar, könnyű. Beszarás!

Opaque dark brown beer, good dark tan head. Palate is smooth and soft. Super fine carbonation. Smooth and rich creamy malt with a nicely judged coffee streak. Really good fresh smooth orange hops. Finishes smooth. So very smooth and effortlessly drinkable.

"It’s like an angel pooped in my mouth." - Immy’s take on FooFaa’s smoked chicken.

Blairgus (2865) - California, USA - AUG 22, 2013
22 aug 2013, bottle. Dark brown/black. Nose is oatmeal, chocolate malt, mild alcohol, a bit meaty. Med body and mildly fizzy. Oatmeal, chocolate malt, mild alcohol, a bit meaty. Definitely interesting. Not sure if I’d call it an imperial stout though. Maybe a foreign extra.
