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.

Bomber @ home. Pitch black color, oily. Thick, dense, beige head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma’s: heavy roast, ground coffee, piney hops, a bit soy sauce, a bit red fruit, chocoladevla. Retronasal there’s heavy roast, sour fruit, piney hops. Flavor is roasted, almost sour, fruity, light sweet, light bitter. In time the sourness all but disappears to make way for more mellow sweetness and chocolate. Medium bodied. Drinks quite easily actually. Finishes with ash and roasted bitterness.

freeofthoughts (634) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Pours a deep black with hint of red. Unique aroma of musty rye and roasted grains, the rye mixing interestingly with the hops. The flavor is rich and interesting. Dark roast with bittersweet chocolate and coffee tones but with an earthy peppery rye that makes the grain bill angled quite a bit towards the rye. The hops are in there but they settle into the richness of the grain, adding some spice and nice herbal balance. The sweetness of the malt overcomes and the carbonation is soft and easy. Started out strange, got really good by the end.
