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.

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.

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.

0.65l bottle. It looks really good in the glass this one. Totally black when it has settled and it has this really milkshake dark creamy dense super lacing head that just screams DRINK ME! Love the aroma as well. It’s so deep and roasted, but also super sharp-hoppy and almost hedge like in a way. It has chocolate, vanilla, wood and a little bit of something burned. Just lovely. It’s a bit higher on the carbonation than I had imagined and it’s not hard to feel a heavy thickness in the mouth. Tastes beautiful. It’s light - or a bit more than light burned. Lots of lightdrinkable qualities here also - something I actually wasn’t expecting. It’s not to thick or chewy, just filled with lots of flavor. No doubt that it’s heavy roasted this. Almost some hard burned coffee beans with chocolate cake and a kick-you-in-the-teeth-bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. A wonderful delicious beverage. 04.01.2014

Pours a deep black, with lasting uneven head. Aroma is rye, spice and lactic tang. Taste: Roasted malts, lactic mouthfeel and tang. Chocolate and rye notes are overall subdued, but tastes great.

Bottle, Beers of Europe. Pitch black pour with a reserved tan head. Glorious beak of chocolate, roasted malts and fragrant hop. More excellent choc in the flavour alongside some well placed hoppage. Full bodied and smooth, just a real treat. This is a very tasty Impy that walks the walk....yeah it does rock.

Barwa: ciemna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana ciemno beżowa, średniej wielkości, ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: ciemne słody, czekolada, kawa, wyraziste amerykańskie chmiele cytrusowe (butelka pachniała intensywnie nawet następnego dnia) oraz nuta alkoholowa. Smak: wytrawny, chmielowy (początkowo wręcz granulkowy),następnie ciemne słody, czekolada i wyraźna alkoholowa końcówka. Występuje też nuta jakby ziemista, zapewne od użytego słodu żytniego. Z czasem ten atak chmielu nieco ustępuje.

Une bouteille de 650ml bue à deux avec Milan. Une bière noire avec une mousse brune, êtes-vous surpris? Un nez de chocolat et de café, de grain rôti avec une touche d’iode (j’aime). En bouche le liquide est gras. Il y a un mélange de café et de grain rôti. Une superbe bière facile à boire et à reboire. J’aime.

Une bombe partagée avec mon pote Yan. Un liquide qui tombe lourdement. Une belle petite tête brune et de longues traces collées sur la paroi de mon verre. Un nez qui vagabonde sur les territoires houblonnés de la résine et de la feuille fraîche et verte. Une base maltée (rôtie et chocolatée) qui transpire véritablement le seigle. J’aime beaucoup aussi le parfum de réglisse qui se mélange à cette petite fumée de torréfaction. En bouche, le liquide offre le meilleur des 2 mondes. L’amertume des grains rôtis est rafraîchie par des cultivars structurés à l’américaine. Donc, du chocolat, des malts noircis, du seigle et des flaveurs élaborées par divers conifères. Au palais, le liquide présente un corps de bonne densité avec un pétillement modéré et une texture crémeuse. La finale montre des longs houblons parfumés à la remorque d’une franche représentation rôtie. Excellente dégustation. Ce stout me fait penser (le seigle en moins) à l’impérial de Brouemont.
