look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Served on tap into a mini 8 oz nonic glass.

A- Black as night with a very dark mocha colored frothy head (darkest head I've ever seen on a beer) that left dense splashy lace.

S- Big dark fruit, very roasty, and rich chocolate notes.

T- Huge dark fruit, raisin, and whiskey soaked cherries. Very roasty malt character with a lot of coffee like bitterness, rich dark chocolate, and a hint of vanilla.

M- Coats the mouth, full bodied, creamy, silky, dry finish, and big warming but no alcohol burn.

O- This is a killer imperial stout from Hoppin Frog and I look forward to trying many more of their imperial stouts. Very complex, perfect mouthfeel, and appearance for the style. Tastes like an incredible extra foreign stout.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance - thick oily pour, two fingers of dark mocha foam. Stiff and sticky, it leaves heavy lace patterns on the glass.

Aroma - plenty of dark roasted malt to go around and some mild to moderate bittersweet chocolate as well.

Taste - sweet and malty, some light char as the swallow clears. Char leads to some hop drying and dark chocolate, along with notable alcohol warming.

Mouthfeel - silky smooth, huge body, makes the 7.8% feel closer to 9 or 10.

Overall - the frog just knows how to do a big impy stout. Another stellar brew from Akron, with a fine assist from Amager.

Tasted with friends at Olbutikken store in Copenhagen. Just amazing. Superb mouth feel and flavor. Creamy, rich, decadent.

The beer is near black with a half inch of dense beige head. The aroma is more Danish than American, offering rich, roasted, dark malts and chocolates with a hint of smoke. A delicious beer. These two breweries both make great imperial stouts, so it's no surprise that this collaboration turned out well. Smooth on the palate with soft carbonation. A delicious beer.

Serving Type - 22oz bottle

Apperance - Dark tan/black with a nice creamy foamy 1 inch head and tons of lacing. Looks great.

Smell - Roasty malts, hops, some brown sugars, molassess, rasin, dates, plums, some caramel and toffee. Honey, some coffee and the musky wheat aroma.

Taste - Starts off with roasty chocolate malts, some bitter hops, then the wheat comes in to mellow everything out. Hops are citric and sweet, yet the coffee, chocolate and chalky wheat counter the bitterness. Some added sugars sweeten up things some. In the finish you get some bitter coffee.

Mouthfeel - Malts coat tounge, along with some hops and wheat. The palate gets more of the same with added sugars and fruits. The aftertaste is malty, dry and wheaty.

Overall - Nice beer, Kind of the in between beer from a dry stout/american stout and a russian imperial stout. Has many flavors, each has its moment, and balances out well. Alcohol is masked really well. This is my favorite from the three colab releases, and id buy this again.

HOPPIN' FROG / Amager
European Tour Series : Edition 3/3
Chocolate Wheat Imperial Stout

LOOK: 22oz bomber into a pint glass. Pours an oily dark brown. Ominous tan brown head. Leaves a sheet of foam lace.

SMELL: Chocolate malt aroma, sweet smelling. Chocolate banana. Mostly chocolate.

TASTE/FEEL: Richly malty with a delicate smoothness. Rich creamy feel. Smoke, tar and chocolate are all well represented with an ashy finish. The wheat is downplayed but adds to the sweetness. Roasty and bitter, with an earthy, piney dry hop bite.

OVERALL: Enjoyable, smooth as hell, American Stout Beer. Complex stuff, the flavors evolve.

Pours rich, oily, like used motor oil. A thin skein of mocha foam forms and settles out into wisps of froth that coat the inside of the glass. Smell is rich milk chocolate with a hint of roast malt. Taste is chocolate right up front, mildly bitter, smooth, creamy and rich. Some roast elements emerge. It seems lightly sweet but isn't at all sugary in character. Perhaps a little bit milk stout like in nature. Medium heavy body and very smooth overall very drinkable. The bottle plainly states 'contains no chocolate' so they worked the chocolate magic with malts. Very enjoyable but not overly complex.
