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.

On draft at HopCat in East Lansing. Pours a light black with a thin head. Doesn’t leave a whole lot of lacing. The aroma it full of roasted barley with a hint of bitterness and citrus. The taste is definitely bitter, a little more than I was expecting. The citrus comes through on the swallow and the mouth feel at the end goes dry, just like a good IPA should.

Had on-tap at BoatWorks and served in a shaker pint. Appearance: Black. Finger of dark brown head. Great lacing, (4/5) Smell: Excellent mix of hops and roasted malt... fruity and earthy hops one whiff, roastiness the next. Really nice stuff that I like. Doesn’t blow me away, but great balance for the style. (3.75/5) Taste/feel: On point. Excellent. Phenomenal blend of sweetness and bitterness that make this a brew to remember. Again, plenty of nice hoppiness coupled with chocolate and roastiness. Could you ask for much more? The brew is also nice and full in feel with a medium carbonation. Very nice. (4.25/5, 4.5/5) Excellent beer. Definitely one of the very best I’ve had from the style. Great balance. Doesn’t favor the hops nor the roast. I really like this brew. 4.25/5

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.

February 16, 2013 - bottle from Sean. Black pour with nice head that faded quickly and lacing. Aroma was roasted malt and citrus hops. Taste was consistent with aroma. This was very well done for a style that is hard to pul off.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 1/2013. Pours pitch black color with a 1 finger dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, pine, orange zest, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, orange rind, and floral hops. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of roasted malt and hop notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, roasted malt, grapefruit, pine, orange zest, orange rind, cocoa, light char, floral, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roasted pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, pine, citrus zest, cocoa, char, floral, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance and complexity of roasted malt and hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy, slick, sticky, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial Black IPA. Great balance and complexity of roasted malt and hop flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering as expected.

Extra from Brandon. Thanks man. I used to be a big black IPA fan. But lately they have gotten boring. Kinda hoppy, too much rye. All similar. But every once in a while you get woken up, and this was it. Lots of chocolate malt that perfectly blends with a nice helping of pine hops. The body is a touch thicker and creamier than most of this style and abv but works great.

I am very hit or miss with black IPAs but this one shown through. It takes the best aspects of an IPA and a porter and melds them together. Malty, roasty, hoppy and bitter all at once. Really good.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, citrus hops, and tropical fruits. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights. It has a one finger tan head that quickly fades to a thin ring round the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate and light fruit. The finish has moderate citrus hops and roasted coffee. It’s light medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall...it’s the first Black IPA that I’ve had that has managed to get tropical fruits in the flavor. It’s very tasty, but it comes across more like a hoppy Porter.
