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.

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.

The appropriately named Goodnight Bodacious is one big ass beer. Coal-black pour with a rich layer of suds. Earthy, piney, and roasty smells. Somehow the flavor manages to be both hugely malty and hugely hoppy. Scorched earth, bitter chocolate, charred coffee beans, and citrus. Full-bodied and boozy. Drinking this on the middle of a cloudy day proved to be somewhat stupid. This thing had me ready for a nap.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
