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.

Fresh bottle. Pours black with a slim khaki head. Nice hop aroma is most noticeable first, then roasted malts, a touch of chocolate. Taste is a nice balance of roasted malts, "earthy" hops (for lack of a better word), and slight coffee. Medium+ bitterness. Full bodied, average carbonation, almost creamy mouthfeel with a lingering bitterness. Well done.

Aromas of roasted coffee, sweet molasses or caramel and bitter pine/spruce hops. Big and bold. Medium light brown head; dark brown, nearly black color. Full bodied, somewhere between oily and creamy texture; a very long finish with both sweet malt, roasted flavors and bitter hops on the finish. Overall I love the big bold flavors from both the malt and the hops and the really long finish. Best beer I have had of the (many) beers I have had from Shorts.

Draft. Black with beige head. Dark, creamy, rich. Body gives way to a heavy grain and roasted malt profile. Some piney and grassy hops come through delicately on the finish. Fantastic mouthfeel for a truly bold beer. Nicely done!

Nice black IPA from Shorts. Nose is sharp, bitter with plenty of roast. Just like it should be. Zesty flavor with plenty of roast and mild chocolate notes. Nice bitterness with good citrus and a nice balance. Well done!

Pours black with a mocha head. Smell is earthy malts and old coffee. Taste is similar... Coffee grains and roasted malts. This really seems more like a thin porter... Not much hop presence.

Bottled. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, alcohol, and citrusy hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, chocolate, wood, and citrusy hops, leading to a dry roasted finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Evolutionary (334) - Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle from Oxford beer store. Dark as ink and thick milky malt nose. A smooth sweeter licorice like taste up front with some mild hop to follow. Once you go black you never go back...... ---Rated via my mouth
