Our abrasive bear wants to go on record stating that G.F.Y. does NOT stand for Good for You. He’s back with a more intense version than the original, and he’s not backing down. This Imperial Stout will continue to attack your palate and assault your taste buds, but now with a bigger punch. If you still don’t know what G.F.Y. means than you can really... G.F.Y

Appearance: black opaque body mocha head that dissipates to thin ring Aroma: slight olive, chocolate, fair amount of solvent alcohol Taste: semi sweet chocolate upfront, dry roastness with slight character of fuggle and cascade. Milky mouth feel. Medium bitterness . Decent stout with no outstanding character besides balance tip more to bitter.

Dug up some old rating from when mydude shared this one w/ a few bros in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours basically black with a small head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is lots of toasty malt, plenty of coffee and some light ash. It’s sweet smelling but not in any way that would suggest it would be some sort of dessert beer.

The flavor is actually fairly dry but it’s got a lit of toasty malt, some coffee and a general big roasty bitterness.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a khaki head that quickly fades to a ring around the glass. Most prominent aroma is alcohol, some chocolate. Taste is similar. Lightly bitter, lots of (cheap vodka) alcohol taste, chocolate malt, light roasted malt. Body is a touch thin, average carbonation, lightly bitter finish.

My Bottom Line:
This chocolate brownie of an Imperial Stout also steps into caramel, oatmeal and roasted coffee territories for a pleasurable dessert experience.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam dwindles to a ring atop the brown-edged black.
-Alcohol doesn’t really appear in the flavor profile.
-That is one mighty delicious grain bill.
-This one’s begging for a thick steak.
-Mouthfeel is prickly yet sweet. Could be a bit tighter on that front.
-This is not an Impy which tries to overwhelm the senses. It’s just pure dark malt goodness.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with medium beige head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is roasted malt and chocolate. Medium mouth with similar flavor to nose, nice sweet malt, raisin and light smoke finish, very good.

Purchased at West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on a rare open Saturday night. Appearance is thick pitch black with a nice moderate tan head. Aroma is rather complex, nice notes of coffee, rich chocolate, licorice, hazelnut, lactose, smoke, really nice. Taste is very good, like a boozy chocolate brownie, huge chocolate and lactose flavor with smokey notes, light licorice, just really well done. One of my new favorite Chicago breweries.

ibrubeer (269) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bomber from Archer Liquors, Chicago. Aroma is a little sweet, bit of molasses and licorice. Jet black color, with dark tan head and very little lacing. Little sweetness, and medium bitterness. Full bodied. Overall, a very good imperial stout.

AWISLguy (2284) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bomber from Puerto Rico Food & Wine, batch 139. Pours black with a brown head leaving some spotty lacing. Aroma has roast and chocolate and caramel. Some lactose and light molasses show through later in the glass. Taste is of sweet caramel, simple sugar, bakers chocolate, some espresso, a touch of nut and a touch of lactose. Medium to full bodied, with some alcohol. Finishes quite balanced with a lot of bitterness and a lot of sweetness. This might be a bit raw yet - and some age may mellow out the cane sugar presence that kicks in on occasion. Overall, pretty solid and tasty. 14.4
