Served on-tap at Mikkeller Bar.

The appearance of this collaboration between Fano and Hoppin` Frog is black with a short tan colored head. This stout has a nose with coffee, pine, roasted malts and black licorice. Sipping on this in one of their smaller glasses and I taste chocolate, more roasted malts, hops, resin, citrus, mmm this is nice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a smooth, easy finish. This is a very nice beer and a great representation of a collaboration done well.

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Espresso coffee bean black, a dark cream colored head recedes to a thick film. Light spots of lacing.

Aroma: Chocolate bars, oatmeal flakes, rye.

Taste: The dry chocolate presence really is amazing. A dry oatmeal cookie body comes after. There is a black licorice hidden underneath.

Mouthfeel: Dry, very dry but not heavy.

Overall: Rich oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. This beer is delicious, no flaws really.

Poured from tap into pint at Avenue NOLA.they claim it as an Evil Twin "natasha does denmark" but this is what I found on BA. Please correct me if I'm wrong here.
Looks great. A deep brown color with a bit of tan head and lacing. Nice chocolate and roasted malt aroma with some slight hop. Taste is big time bitter roasted malts, some chocolate flavors. A bit over bitter but good. It is a great american stout. Dry, flavorful, body. Have one.

Midnight black body with a thin yet lasting light tan head. Deep chocolate and roasted grain aromas; a bit of spicy, minty smell, too. Big bittersweet chocolate flavor; strong bitterness; a bit of astringency at the finish; a twinge rye crispness and sting hiding in the background. Heavy bodied; smooth; semi-sweet finish.

Luscious and full-bodied stout. Nice balance of malt sweetness with an almost IPA-like hop bitterness. Perhaps it's the rye and hop combination that faintly resembles a bourbon-barrel character to things (I don't believe this beer was barrel aged), but whatever the case, there's a lot of pleasing nuance and depth to this stout.

a pitch black pour with 2 fingers of dark brown head (great retention), lots of sticky lacing. dark roasty aroma, toasted grains, dark chocolate, coffee beans, licorice, and grassy hops. the flavor profile and mouthfeel are reminiscent of a dry irish stout.. medium body with a dry finish, low carbonation, silky smooth going down. lots of roasty flavors in the profile, coffee, tobacco, chocolate, licorice, subtle grassy hops, belgian style yeast gives it a nice bready profile.

this is a solid stout overall, i wouldn't really call it an imperial stout as it says on the label, it's too low in abv for that, but the deliciousness of an imperial is there.

No “Natasha Rocks America” on BA, so I’m guessing this “Natasha Rocks Denmark” is the Fanø version of this collaboration – though the pic is the Hoppin’ Frog “America” label.

A: Creamy chocolate brown body with an inch-high tan head that leaves lacing all over as it falls. Retention never gets more than a wafer-thin layer over the body.

S: Mineral water aromas play hand-in-hand with pungent American hops – resinous, oily pine – with hints of bitter pumpernickel spice. The malt character, though, is what really brings this to a higher level, emanating with a gorgeous mix of sweet chocolate and crisp grains: I’m getting dark chocolate, roasted grain, and vanilla, as well as a dead-on tone of graham cracker. The grain scents go deep in this nose, and that’s just the way I like it.

T: A sweet, hefty palate – every sip is filled to the brim with residual sugars. Marshmallow, tobacco, toasted oak, anise, Hershey’s cocoa, and smoky roasted malt give this a s’mores character through-and-through, sweet in so natural a way that it’s never cloying. Roasts tighten to bitters as the hops rise in a wave of chili pepper, pine needles, and cinnamon, a thick interpretation of American hopping. Caramel and baked apple in the aftertaste, finishing with earthy sweetness.

M: Creamy but not incredibly viscous –milky, I’d say. A subtle texture, not filling at all.

O: Another Hoppin’ Frog stout done right, and this time with a definite flair of something different, thanks to Fanø. A great stout with all the flavor of dark malt, not just sugar.
