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.

Idiosynkrasie (4244) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 5, 2013
650ml bottle. Dark red glowing black colour with small to average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, ochre head. Spicy, roasty dark malty aroma with intense hoppy overtones reminds of a Black IPA with typical green onion notes. Taste is spicy, roasty dark malty, hoppy overtones; round, well balanced, a compact unit. Very nice.

superspak (2913) - Michigan, USA - FEB 17, 2013
22 ounce bottle into snifter; no bottle dating, but was released in 11/2012. Pours pitch black color with a nice 1-2 finger dense dark tan head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice thick soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, roasted malt, pine, grapefruit, orange zest, floral, toast, light char, dark bread, spicy rye, and hop earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance, strength, and complexity; did not a profile similar to a Black IPA. Taste of big dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, char, toast, pine, orange zest, grapefruit, floral, dark bread, spicy rye, light coffee, and hop earthiness. Fair amount of coffee and citrus bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, light char, toast, pine, orange zest, grapefruit, floral, dark bread, spicy rye, light coffee, and hop earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance, complexity, and robustness of roasted notes; with a great hop/malt balance; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an incredible rye imperial stout! Great balance, complexity, and robustness of flavors; and extremely easy to sip on. An extremely delicious offering, would definitely have it again.

Bomber from B&B in Wind Lake. Pours a very dark black with a chocolate milk head leaving nice lacing. Aroma has roasted malts, some surprising piney hops and bakers chocolate with a touch of licorice. Taste is of sweet chocolate, roasted caramel malt and some tangy dry rye spicyness. Sweet and grainy-dry. The aroma surprised from the color, and then the taste was quite unexpected from the aroma. Finishes sweetly bitter and dry. Would say "sweet stout" or "porter" or "black ipa" prior to saying "imperial stout" ... nonetheless, it is tasty and enjoyable.
