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 tap at Pearl’s New Orleans Kitchen. Black pour with a tan head. Citrusy hops and a roasted chocolate flavor. Not overly bitter, a very nice Black IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Bottle: Deep shade of black, no real color being pulled from the body with a light-tan head, possibly a bit lighter than I’d expect from the jet-black base. Aroma has notes of toasted, almost burnt caramel malts, deep roast, & some mild, buried cocoa powder. Heavy hoppage on the nose as well; pine needs, light floral notes, mild dankness, & some bitter citrus peel during the latter half of the brew. Hops are even more pungent in the flavor; notes of pine, oily resin, grapefruit rind, a hint of leafy, herbal citrus. Huge steel-y caramel & deeply roasted malt underbody with a touch of finishing ash. When I had this last year, I had a couple bottles that were a few months old... No problem. The hops are toned down just a touch & the roast & chocolate malt show up even more. It goes from a Black IPA to a hopped up porter. Either way, quite delicious. Love this stuff, big hit from Shorts.

tomekk1978 (571) - Ząbki, POLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Barwa: czarna, nieprzejrzysta nawet pod światło. Piana beżowa, średnio pęcherzykowa, niezbyt obfita, szybko opadająca. Wysycenie niskie. Aromat: czekoladowy, lekko palony, charakterystyczny dla ciemnych słodów w zestawieniu z chmielowym. Bardzo przyjemny i kuszący. Smak: wytrawny, na końcu słodki, przechodzący w gorzki. Akcenty gorzkiej czekolady i alkoholowość. Dość rozgrzewające. Po chwili pojawia się kwaskowość charakterystyczna dla użycia dużej dawki ciemnych słodów. Fantastyczne piwo. Short’s Brew po raz kolejny udowadnia, że oferuje naprawdę ciekawe propozycje. Jest to wręcz oleista ciemna IPA do spokojnego sączenia. Zawarty w niej aromat nie może się znudzić. Smak również świetny. Ocena byłaby wyższa gdyby nie cena. Uważam że butelka 0,33 l nie powinna kosztować więcej niż 15 zł, co i tak jest już sporą kwotą.

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!

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle from Suchy3! Pours black with a nice slight tan head. Big, fresh hop aroma with a nice roasted malt balance and a bit of bubblegum on the back. Taste is fresh grass, citrus, bubblegum, roasted malts and a slight hit of chocolate. Everything really comes together nicely on the palate and lasts for awhile. A very well-rounded black IPA with a slightly hefty ABV that doesn’t get in the way.
