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.

Nice black IPA from Shorts. Nose is sharp, bitter with plenty of roast. Just like it should be. Zesty flavor with plenty of roast and mild chocolate notes. Nice bitterness with good citrus and a nice balance. Well done!

Pretty nice black IPA. Piney and citrusy hops and a roasty chocolate flavor almost reminiscent of a very hoppy porter. Not overly bitter but definitely present.

Draft. Black with beige head. Dark, creamy, rich. Body gives way to a heavy grain and roasted malt profile. Some piney and grassy hops come through delicately on the finish. Fantastic mouthfeel for a truly bold beer. Nicely done!

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Draft at Taps 25, Lansing. Deep garnet body, thick puffy light brown head. Nose of chocolate and pine, tannic and leafy. Sharp woody, piny body, pillowy and sweet with chocolate, charred sugars, and sticky gum-like candy. A black IPA on steroids, but the alcohol is not especially prominent.

An amazing beer. Just a huge mouthfull. Not much hops, but a little at the end give it a very nice finishing touch. Can’t remember the smell.

black barley wine, smooth hop flavors moonlighting as a stout. A black barley wine, well hopped and full bodied with prominent flavors of roasted malt and chocolate.
