COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In a collaboration with Fanř 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.

JMerritt (1841) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottled. Dark black with a frothy light-brown head that is long lasting. Dusty cocoa aroma with definite rye bread pungency, light wood, sugared dates and very faint alcohol at the tail end. Bittersweet cocoa upfront in the flavor, but the rye quickly breaks through leading the way for some moderately citrusy hops that are ultimately layered with dark chocolate and heavily roasted coffee beans in the finish. As it warms, the dusty bakers cocoa notes turn slightly softer and more milk chocolatey. A nice and even imperial stout that doesn?t lean heavily on barrel aging booziness. The rye lends a great earthy zestiness and really helps cut through the rich maltiness.

jeremyh70 (774) - 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 (1092) - 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.

_angst_ (3049) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2014 Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours deep brownish black with a frothy and creamy mocha head that leaves some thick lacing on the glass while dissiapting. Smell is malty with rye bread, caramel, black pepper corns, hay, soil, alcohol, chocolate and coffee. Taste is bitter and malty with rye bread, rye flour, chocolate, coffee, toasted cereal and orange zest. Mouthfeel is soft, tiny tart and medium to full bodied. Finish is malty with rye bread, caramel, hay, soil, pepper corns and lemon zest. Solid beer but rather meh from this brewery. Something with the malt bill doesn’t quite work for me…
