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.

22 oz bottle into snifter. Pours a dark black color with a thin beige head that quickly fades. Good lacing on the glass. Aroma is an unusual mix of chocolate, rye bread, light fruit, grassy hops, and coffee. Taste is fruit and rye bread at first but quickly turns to chocolate and roasted coffee. The fruit flavor is different than I’m used to, I think it might be plums or something. Moderately bitter. Very dry finish and slightly tart, leaves a lingering cocoa taste. A bit thin in the mouthfeel but silky smooth. Very odd beer and not sure how to rate it. The flavor is good and very unique but I don’t like the dry, tart finish. Overall, I think it’s good but not great.

_angst_ (2854) - 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…

slowrunner77 (5977) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 9, 2014
"maybe some time has domne this well. I went into this timidly, as 7.5% is on the low end for an "imperial" stout, and the reviews have been good but not great. Upon cracking the bottle, though, this was an eye opener. Wonderful full aroma of rye and chocolate, light licorice and roasted coffee. Surprisingly black. Body isn’t as light as expected, though it has ample carbonation it’s very smooth. Flavor is a wonderful balance of hoppy and roasted stout, with the rye (I admit, i have a soft spot) done to near perfection. FAR surpassed expectations."
