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

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.

Batch 8 A: Gorgeous oily opaque black pour - slips out of the bottle and forms a creamy mocha head. S: Heavily roasted coffee and bitter dark chocolate hit first, then some raisin and caramel, some slight vanilla sweetness. T: Big roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Milk chocolate sweetness and caramel in the middle of the mouth. A pretty bitter russian imperial stout P: Very smooth. M/F bodied O: A really awesome beer. Spiteful is off to an awesome start

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2014 Batch #3. It pours a thick inky black with a big foamy tan head. SMell is huge chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is big malts, coffee, caramel, cocoa. Really rich malt flavor. Mouthfeel is fairly thick and slick. This is exactly what an impy stout shoudl be, nice suprise buy. I like the 8% version more. This reflects the 8% version not the 10%.

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - MAY 1, 2013
Tasted on tap @Mikkeller bar, Copenhagen, 01/05/2013. Pours reddish brown, with a lovely foam. Aroma is intense, quite unusual for an imperial stout, some woody/vanilla and berry tones, really interesting smell, i mean it! Taste is impressive, loads of different flavors - cherries a bit, apples, some citruses even, roasty notes and else. Aftertaste is moderately roasty and a bit tart. Absolutely amazing beer, so easily drinkable for the style, and for sure - Recommended+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber from trade with dfonorow. Pours pitch black with a small foamy head that quickly fades, leaves some oily webbing. Aroma has lots of dark roast, burnt wood, and coffee with lots of hops too. Taste is big fresh roasted coffee, yum. Very light chocolate, some ash. Great balance of sweetness and bitterness. Lots of floral and grassy hops come in the finish too. Medium body, light oil and chalk in the mouthfeel. Overall, this is good stuff. Seems very hoppy, even for an imperial stout. Could almost be a Black IPA.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours black with a half finger of dark brown head. Coffee dominates the aroma but there are hints of vanilla and burnt malts. Taste is bitter. Coffee with a little dark chocolate and burnt malts. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Soft carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, awesome. I could drink this every day.

Pours a dark chocolate colored goodness into my snifter glass with a trace of tan head and lite lacing. Smells roasty and with a subtle hint of hop at the end Tastes rich and full bodied with a lot of nice roasted blends hitting the pallet. Mouth feel is a tad thin but good for a stout. Overall this is a very nice Stout and I will be waiting anxiously for their next creation. Cheers!

Bomber from Binny’s Skokie. Pours black with beautiful thick dark tan head. Aromas of heavily roasted malts, chocolate, and some coffee. Flavors of a ton of heavily roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and some dark fruit. Finishes dry due to the loads of roasted malts. Extremely solid stout and great first batch.
