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.

Rating 1300. Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is of caramel, roasted, and chocolate malts with a hint of citrus hops. Plenty of rye as well on the aroma. Flavor is strong of the roasted, rye, and chocolate malts. There’s a hint of citrus hops on the finish with plenty of bitterness as well. Not much alcohol flavor for being an imperial stout.
