COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Goodnight Bodacious has the maltiness of a barleywine and the hoppiness of an India Pale Ale. A rich, hoppiness dominates the aroma, with earthy and loamy scents. A medium body presents big, bitter black barley and roasted coffee flavors, with subtle compliments of dark fruit and green hops. Strong alcohol flavors and pleasant warming qualities become more noticeable as the beer approaches room temperature.

Pours black with a brown head. Spotty lacing. Aroma is very resinous. Notes of dark malt, earth, coffee and some dark fruit. Flavor is coffee, tabacco, char, and pine needles. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Lasting bitter finish. I am impressed.

ebone1988 (961) - Taylor, Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Aroma is roasted malt, earthy hops, smoke, pine, tropical fruit, coffee, chocolate, bodacious. Appearance is dark dark brown, light brown head, a beauty. Taste is roasted malt, earthy hops, lots of pine, coffee and chocolate at the end, really really good. Mouthfeel is thick like a porter, medium to heavy body, light soft carbonation, lots of roasted malt in the aftertaste. Overall, this one drinks a lot like a hoppier version of Founders Porter, really solid stuff.

Really good beer. Dark black, bitter pour. Not much aroma. Compared this side by side with Odd Side Car Ramrod. This one lost but was still pretty good. Very bitter.

Criz (333) - - MAR 19, 2016
Pitch black pour beige head, oily legs. Porter-like aromas of charred wood, toasted grains, coffee,slight pine finish. Coffee flavors, pine, bitter finish. Oily mouthfeel. Certainly not my style of beer, as I feel black ipas tend to eliminate the traditional ipa qualities.

arminjewell (9207) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of dark fruit, cocoa, roast, caramel, hints of pine, grass, slight orange into some more cocoa powder. Taste was a mix of brownie, cocoa, roast, nice pine, orange, hints of herbal notes, finishing bitter.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle:   Black, soft frothy sandy head, spotty lacing.   Faint roastiness, subtle hops.   Nice balance on the tongue, seems a bit more moderate than the softness suggested by the nose.   Dark chocolate and ashy notes follow.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   I like this in that its not acrid, isn’t balanced one way or the other, and has a bit of sweetness to it.   Seems like a solid example.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Overall not bad, but nothing that really stood out to me here. Good chocolate notes, but I tend to like the more dry versions of this style. Worth a try.

PhillyCraft (5089) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle, pours black with medium off white head that stuck around for a minute or so. Faded to a ring of foam with nice lace. Notes are rye, roasty malt, chocolate, wood, coffee, light ash and bitter hops. The roast overpowers the hops slightly but its well balanced overall for a black ipa. Surprised I was able to finish most of the bottle before cracking a can of boat.

Jfletch (9) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 23, 2015 does not count
Bottle to pint. Pours very black with brown around the edges. Pours like a stout. Aromas of cedar, barnyard and almost a sweet burnt rubber. The body is medium with good carbonation. Good toast notes. Coffee is the predominant flavor on the palate with a nice bitterness at the end from the hops. There is a strong alcohol component at the end. The finish is slightly dry. Which is welcoming. Overall a very nice beer. I could drink a few of these.

AirForceHops (5665) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 18, 2015
12 bottle shared by Willrunforbeer, much thanks. Black with almost no head. Aroma is chocolate, charred malt and pine.

The flavor is pine forward with roasted earthy malts, ash and very mild citrus. The pine is the main player with a nice body and mouthfeel. Pine bitterness is over the top, bold. Maybe the best Shorts brew I have sampled.
