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.

crossovert (12002) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Flack pour, creamy yet foamy tan head. Smell of chocolate and pacific northwest hops with some pine and citrus zest. The flavor is fruity but with some peaty ash and wood tones. Obviously plenty of cocoa too and a pit of alcohol bite. It is different than most, more of a pleasant/fruity/hopy impy stout.
