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.

ICEatALAMO (1342) - 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 (1103) - 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 (3174) - 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.
