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 an oily black, pretty opaque. Very thin butterscotch head. Medium to low carbonation. Hard to see the bubbles being so dark. Aromas of coffee, and roasted nut. Some hops creep in, giving an earthy undertone. Taste is very malt-forward, imo. Thick, oily coffee and roasted nut. A nice rich mouthfeel. Some bittering hops lend pine, earth, floral notes and a dash of spice to the moderately dry finish. Pretty decently done, but close to the the stout/porter end of the spectrum.

Bottle. Pours black with no head and no carbonation. Aroma is roasted malts and piney hops. Taste is similar. No carbonation is not helping this beer.

Pours jet black. Little to no head. Aroma is of mostly roasted, chocolate malts. Not much, if any detection of hops. Taste is on the chocolate malty side, with some slight citrus hop coming though. Average beer. Nothing great, but not bad either.

Lots of malt upfront. Flavors of creamy dark chocolate and lightly roasted coffee leading to citrus hops, orange, citrus peel, caramel and hints of toffee. Very well balanced and a great take on the style.

Bottle. Dense dark brown color with small khaki head. Malt shines through in aroma. Taste is a nice balance of everything involved here. Bitter, toasty, sweet.

Bottle from Oxford beer store. Dark as ink and thick milky malt nose. A smooth sweeter licorice like taste up front with some mild hop to follow. Once you go black you never go back...... ---Rated via my mouth

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Bottle: Deep shade of black, no real color being pulled from the body with a light-tan head, possibly a bit lighter than I’d expect from the jet-black base. Aroma has notes of toasted, almost burnt caramel malts, deep roast, & some mild, buried cocoa powder. Heavy hoppage on the nose as well; pine needs, light floral notes, mild dankness, & some bitter citrus peel during the latter half of the brew. Hops are even more pungent in the flavor; notes of pine, oily resin, grapefruit rind, a hint of leafy, herbal citrus. Huge steel-y caramel & deeply roasted malt underbody with a touch of finishing ash. When I had this last year, I had a couple bottles that were a few months old... No problem. The hops are toned down just a touch & the roast & chocolate malt show up even more. It goes from a Black IPA to a hopped up porter. Either way, quite delicious. Love this stuff, big hit from Shorts.
