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.

Pretty nice black IPA. Piney and citrusy hops and a roasty chocolate flavor almost reminiscent of a very hoppy porter. Not overly bitter but definitely present.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Bottle... Pours ink-black with a small, creamy, beige head. Fantastic retention. The nose is a robust mingling of worn leather, dark chocolate, blackstrap molasses and burnt malt. Full-bodied and velvety with lazy carbonation. The flavor is reminiscent of many of Mikkeller’s imperial stouts - scorched malt bitterness, burnt grains, blackstrap molasses, charcoal, and above everything else - violently hopped. Normally that turns me off, but in this case it was what I was expecting and I was in the mood for it. Piney, resiny lupulin in both the aroma and flavor. Finishes burnt and bitter, but not at all dry. Well-done, boys! Bottle courtesy of FlandersNed!
