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.

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.

Aromas of roasted coffee, sweet molasses or caramel and bitter pine/spruce hops. Big and bold. Medium light brown head; dark brown, nearly black color. Full bodied, somewhere between oily and creamy texture; a very long finish with both sweet malt, roasted flavors and bitter hops on the finish. Overall I love the big bold flavors from both the malt and the hops and the really long finish. Best beer I have had of the (many) beers I have had from Shorts.

Bottle from trade with umich03jm. Big thanks, Jason! Pours nearly black with a beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate and coffee with a hint of pine peeking through. Taste is dark chocolate, roast, coffee - balanced with floral, pine hop. Pine hop bitterness lingers through the finish.

This BEER tastes like cat pee and smells like cat pee. It's even better with the lights off. The cat pee is prevalent. Four out of five. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a very dark brown with a tan foam head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is roast, hops, and alcohol. Flavor is sweet roast, fruit, and some bitterness. Goes down smooth. Fantastic.

Outstanding beer. Perfect palate on this ipa. Hops and roast come through well. Finish is a bit high on the alcohol. Great overall.
