4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
The aroma is hops, then caramel. Pours almost black with small dark tan head, mostly diminishing with excellent lacing. The taste is bitter, bites on the back of the tongue. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation soft and the finish bitter and long. Very Good!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The appropriately named Goodnight Bodacious is one big ass beer. Coal-black pour with a rich layer of suds. Earthy, piney, and roasty smells. Somehow the flavor manages to be both hugely malty and hugely hoppy. Scorched earth, bitter chocolate, charred coffee beans, and citrus. Full-bodied and boozy. Drinking this on the middle of a cloudy day proved to be somewhat stupid. This thing had me ready for a nap.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is roasted malt, earthy hops, smoke, pine, tropical fruit, coffee, chocolate, bodacious. Appearance is dark dark brown, light brown head, a beauty. Taste is roasted malt, earthy hops, lots of pine, coffee and chocolate at the end, really really good. Mouthfeel is thick like a porter, medium to heavy body, light soft carbonation, lots of roasted malt in the aftertaste. Overall, this one drinks a lot like a hoppier version of Founders Porter, really solid stuff.

Really good beer. Dark black, bitter pour. Not much aroma. Compared this side by side with Odd Side Car Ramrod. This one lost but was still pretty good. Very bitter.

Pitch black pour beige head, oily legs. Porter-like aromas of charred wood, toasted grains, coffee,slight pine finish. Coffee flavors, pine, bitter finish. Oily mouthfeel. Certainly not my style of beer, as I feel black ipas tend to eliminate the traditional ipa qualities.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Black, soft frothy sandy head, spotty lacing.   Faint roastiness, subtle hops.   Nice
balance on the tongue, seems a bit more moderate than the softness suggested by the nose.   Dark chocolate and
ashy notes follow.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   I like this in that its not acrid, isn’t balanced one
way or the other, and has a bit of sweetness to it.   Seems like a solid example.
