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.

Bottle. The aroma is strong of bitter hops. The taste is for sure if the double kind. Great for a black iipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Caramelized molasses, a bit of good earthy compost tea, and tangerine. Interesting, this starts out with all the hallmarks of a Black IPA, the sinamar cocoa powder and cola, the light brisk freshness of hops, but then, the hops never really materialize. I would call this a low to moderately hopped beer. For a Black IPA, this is a pretty good American Baltic Porter, without as much caramel malt depth as it should have. Very warming. It’s a little confused and really needs to turn the hops up if its going to call itself a Double Black IPA.

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!

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.

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!

Silphium (3193) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Draft at Taps 25, Lansing. Deep garnet body, thick puffy light brown head. Nose of chocolate and pine, tannic and leafy. Sharp woody, piny body, pillowy and sweet with chocolate, charred sugars, and sticky gum-like candy. A black IPA on steroids, but the alcohol is not especially prominent.

An amazing beer. Just a huge mouthfull. Not much hops, but a little at the end give it a very nice finishing touch. Can’t remember the smell.
