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.

Dark black pour into shaker. Tall medium brown head. Nice sweet aroma. The hops are evident as well. A bit of hoppy flavor, a lot of coffee Overtones. Slightly bitter aftertaste but lots of coffee flavor. Good bitter black IPA. Slightly hoppy, a little malty, LOTS of coffee. Pretty unique black IPA.

Extra from Brandon. Thanks man. I used to be a big black IPA fan. But lately they have gotten boring. Kinda hoppy, too much rye. All similar. But every once in a while you get woken up, and this was it. Lots of chocolate malt that perfectly blends with a nice helping of pine hops. The body is a touch thicker and creamier than most of this style and abv but works great.

I am very hit or miss with black IPAs but this one shown through. It takes the best aspects of an IPA and a porter and melds them together. Malty, roasty, hoppy and bitter all at once. Really good.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, citrus hops, and tropical fruits. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights. It has a one finger tan head that quickly fades to a thin ring round the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate and light fruit. The finish has moderate citrus hops and roasted coffee. It’s light medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall...it’s the first Black IPA that I’ve had that has managed to get tropical fruits in the flavor. It’s very tasty, but it comes across more like a hoppy Porter.

On tap at Pearl’s New Orleans Kitchen. Black pour with a tan head. Citrusy hops and a roasted chocolate flavor. Not overly bitter, a very nice Black IPA.
