This is the 3rd. Collaboration Brew from this year’s European Tour Series, and was developed with Amager Brewery in Copenhagen, Denmark. At 7.8% abv, it is rich, hoppy and balanced. Frog Hops is made with an abundance of English and German malts, including the super-tasty German chocolate malt! And it is hopped with select American hops, including dry-hopping.

@Basunen: stor doft av chockad. Smaken är ganska snäll med en liten beska och viss syrlighet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Poured from a bottle 16 months old. Aroma is chocolate and some hops. Appearance is a dark brown allowing no light to pass, with a 2 finger tan head. Taste is a smooth semi sweet chocolate with roasted malt and some dark fruits. Palate is very smooth and viscous. Overall an excellent beer much better in my opinion than it was when fresh 16 months ago.

Poured from a bomber aged 16 months into a Hoppin Frog snifter almost black with a thick tan head. Beautiful sight. Aroma is roasted chocolate smells very rich. Flavor is thick sweet cocoa. Smooth. Some coffee. A bit of hops. Malty Extremely well done blend here. Had well over a year ago and thought was too grassy. WIth some age this is quite the beauty.

22 ounce bottle. Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and licorice. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, licorice, and fruit. Very good.

Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Silky black body, looks pretty thick & viscous; slowly rising, micro-bubble tan-mocha head sits chunky on top. Aroma has notes of mocha & bitter chocolate, bitter roast, & a light undercurrent of sweet cream. Equal parts anise & boozy licorice show up, too, almost akin to Jagermeister. Finish of dates & roast in the back-end. Taste includes bitter cocoa powder, mocha chocolates, roasted malt, & a slight floral twinge mid-palate (assuming this is from the hops?). Aftertaste is more dark-fruity with notes of prunes & figs; relatively sweet finish compared to the bitterness of the front end. Slight boozy & mild acetone-like notes with warmth, surprising for only being 7.8% ABV. Decent brew, though there’s no reason to ever choose this over BORIS.

Dfonorow (2274) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle. Pour is black with a two-finger wide tan head. Aroma is of chocolate covered raisins, roasted barley, and rye. Flavor is sweet upfront - cocoa nibs, vanilla bean, espresso. Finish is rye and English grain. Chocolate cake lingers in the aftertaste.

Bottle picked up at the brewery. Pours jet black motor oil, big light brown head recedes to a dense ring. Raisins, cocoa nibs, some dank herbal and coffee hints on the nose. Big malty, coffee dryness, roast and some resinous hops. Rich body. The wheat character added and interesting aspect to the body and flavor profile. Solid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some wheat and chocolate notes. The flavor is very similar. I get some chocolate and roasted malt notes as well as some wheat. Medium carbonation and thick mouthfeel.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle:   Black, small to moderate frothy beige head, little lacing.   Chocolate malt and oatmeal on the nose.   Big and somewhat sweet.   Smooth, a bit wheaty on the tongue, big roasty backside.   Lots of dark chocolate and roast, did I mention smooth on the tongue.   Smooth, but not too heavy.   A little dry in the finish, dark chocolate, oatmeal, and a big wheat body.   Low hops too.   Enjoyable, one that is easy to drink an entire bomber despite the fact I shared this with 4 other people.
