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.

From bottle, pours black with tan head. Grapefruit mixed with milk chocolate, very unique nose. Medium body, starts out sweet and then balances out with hop bitterness and fruity notes.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2013 Bottle snagged from the brewery. Pours a near pitch black color with a small frothy head that lingers a bit. Very nice aroma of light roasted coffee, dark chocolate, pine, and flowers. Taste is a great balance of the aromas. Coffee, bitter dark chocolate and pine all present throughout. Finish is smooth, creamy, and bitter. Thick and creamy mouthfeel. Really nice black DIPA. Re-rate 3/14/13 - Had this a few more times and like it even better. This has to be the best Black IPA I’ve had. All the flavors just blend together nicely, nothing dominates here. It’s really a thick stout with a focus on fresh hops. Mouthfeel is thick, creamy and oily too. Great stuff, I should’ve bought a case of this.

Dark black pour into shaker. Tall medium brown head. Nice sweet aroma. The hops are evident as well. A bit of hoppy flavor, a lot of coffee Overtones. Slightly bitter aftertaste but lots of coffee flavor. Good bitter black IPA. Slightly hoppy, a little malty, LOTS of coffee. Pretty unique black IPA.

Just to clarify, this is a Double Black IPA (which I forgot to mention when I uploaded the beer into the RB database). Looks good; pitch black with nice head. Smells pretty good too; hoppy and malty. Tastes like it smells, only better. Nice on the palate too. Pretty good stuff!
