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.

DocLock (7854) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Bomber from the brewery via PUB’R. Hazy, thick dark brown pour with minimal tan head. Nose was dark and rye malt, cacao, molasses, hops. Tasted thick and rich, with huge rye malt flavors, big hops, cacao, and a complex finish. This one was excellent, and a once in a lifetime experience for the Good Doctor.

Pours a deep dark black pour with a magnificent java coffee colored head. Nose is mocha , sweet chocolate and rye with a hint of alcohol. Taste is bittersweet chocolate, mocha and deep malt. Finishes on the sweet malty flavored notes with a moderately long ending. Well Done ! Quaff Score 8 / 10

Bomber. Pours black with a brown head and nice aroma of sweet chocolate, rye, and coffee. Taste is sweet as well, tons of chocolate and rye with coffee and vanilla notes leading to a sweet, roasty finish. Delicious brew

Bottle. Wow, I should have bought more of this. It is fantastic. Chocolate and brownies with a nice deep maltiness. Some nice hopping to balance. Pitch black pour with a deep brown head that fully coats. Creamy and full bodied, but clean. A black patent char on the finish.

zoucrew102 (523) - - MAY 17, 2014
Bomber. Roasted malt/coffee aroma with hints of earthy rye and chocolate. Pours deep, black with a thin, light brown head and very little lacing. Strong roasted malt and coffee flavors to start. Finishes very dry with some some earthiness from the rye, but mostly more roastiness. Good in some respects but the other flavors overpower what chocolate might be there.

Bottle shared with and courtesy of wyzzywyz22. Cheers mate. I don’t come across Hoppin’ Frog beers much but I love them when I do. Poured black with a nice darkish tan head. Roasted coffee, chocolate, big aroma, cocoa powder, nice hops, chocolate in the flavour was great. Really liked this one.

GreatDane1632 (368) - Louisiana, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Rated from notes taken on 9 Mar 2014 -- Poured from the bomber. An oil slick into my glass. Jet black with a little brown head. Smell is dark and dank. This beer would probably have been more enjoyable if I had drank it earlier in the night. Overall enjoyable, but I would like to give it another shot to truly appreciate it.

Another late night share by RussianDragon. Thanks Dave! The beer is near black with a small beige collar. Sparse lacing. The aroma brings baker’s chocolate, roast, ripe dark fruits, bread. The rye character is subtle, but does add a nice touch. Cocoa and dark roast. Big time Danish influence in this stout. Medium to full bodied with moderately low carbonation. A touch of bitterness and dry cocoa powder in the finish. A solid beer. I really enjoyed this.
