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.

brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - JAN 2, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2013 Pours black with a half finger length of a reddish mocha color that disispates quickly and leaves a nice lacing. Smells is an excellent mix of hops and stout qualities. Get the floral, little bit of grapefruit or cherry, and a little pine from the hops. At the same time, get lots of roasted qualities, dark chocolate, maybe a little coffee, vanilla, little rye from the stout side of it. Smells like an interesting berry chocolate smell overall. Taste starts with a lot of hop qualities. Get the floral, a lot of grapefruit, some kind of berry. Also get some roastiness, but not too much. Then the middle, get a nice dose of carmel or toffee, as well as some milk chocolate and some spicy rye. The hop qualities stay around, but a very creamy texture comes about. I’m guessing some oatmeal added to its creaminess and smoothness. Finish is very complex with some berry and grapefruit, dryness from the hops, as well as some roasted coffee and chocolate, perhaps some vanilla. Get a good amount of sweetness from the carmel or brown sugar flavors. A little spicy rye as well. A high medium body with a great creamy mouthfeel and carbonation. This is an extremely interesting beer that mixes an IPA with a stout beautifully in my opinion. Well done.

ICEatALAMO (1066) - Troy, Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle. The pour is black with a full head. The aroma is mild overall, but some chocolate and malts. The taste is a malt bomb. Good chocolate and rye flavors. Some hops in the back end and their bitterness is cut by the malt nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jeremyh70 (832) - Missouri, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Pours almost completely black with a very nice and fluffy tan head that sustains well and leaves great lacing. Aroma of rye bread, chocolate and a hint of soy sauce. Taste has an earthy and spicy rye flavor along with a good deal of roast and only a hint of chocolate. Also get black coffee and a bit of soy sauce. Finished dry with some roasty bitterness. Mouthfeel is semi silky with a medium/full body and moderate/high carbonation. Great looking beer but the soy in the aroma and taste turned me off somewhat. Also wanted more chocolate in the flavor and was a little over carbonated.

angel77 (1215) - oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 25, 2014
Botella de 65 cl de el lúpulo, tomada en el momento el 15-11-2014. Color negro intenso con espuma oscura no muy persistente. Aromas maltosos ligeramente ahumados y cacao. Cuerpo medio con 7.5 vol, fácil de beber, algo denso y espumoso. Sabores maltosos y cereales (centeno que le da un carácter rústico al conjunto ) tostados y ahumados ligeramente dulces y con lactosa, con toques buenos de cacao amargo que persiste en boca por un buen rato. Bastante buena, mas o menos densa y con una buena dosis de cacaos amargos, para repetir sin problema.
