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.

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 (1166) - 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.

A: Dark Opaque Hue, Passes No Light, Off White Head Ring, Decent Lacing S: Dark Mildly Roasted Chocolate Malts, Bitter Coffee T: Bitter Coffee, Piney, Dark Chocolate Malts M: Decent Carbonation, Medium to Full Bodied, Mildly Bitter Overall, way too much coffee and chocolate flavor and not enough of the hop profile...but that is a personal preference, not to fault the beer.

Opaque dark brown - black beer. Good tan head. Palate is softish and airy. Nice dark malts with good dark chocolate, unsweet. A little cream. Hops are light pine with a whisper of citrus. Mild but juicy dark fruits. Finishes smooth with a malty bitter linger. Very tasty.
