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.

Bottled 355ml. A huge amount of resinous hops and roasted malt throughout. Clean as a whistle. A lot of IBUs. Dry finish. Flawless and deeply delicious.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Bottle: Deep shade of black, no real color being pulled from the body with a light-tan head, possibly a bit lighter than I’d expect from the jet-black base. Aroma has notes of toasted, almost burnt caramel malts, deep roast, & some mild, buried cocoa powder. Heavy hoppage on the nose as well; pine needs, light floral notes, mild dankness, & some bitter citrus peel during the latter half of the brew. Hops are even more pungent in the flavor; notes of pine, oily resin, grapefruit rind, a hint of leafy, herbal citrus. Huge steel-y caramel & deeply roasted malt underbody with a touch of finishing ash. When I had this last year, I had a couple bottles that were a few months old... No problem. The hops are toned down just a touch & the roast & chocolate malt show up even more. It goes from a Black IPA to a hopped up porter. Either way, quite delicious. Love this stuff, big hit from Shorts.

tomekk1978 (1401) - Z±bki, POLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Barwa: czarna, nieprzejrzysta nawet pod światło. Piana beżowa, średnio pęcherzykowa, niezbyt obfita, szybko opadająca. Wysycenie niskie. Aromat: czekoladowy, lekko palony, charakterystyczny dla ciemnych słodów w zestawieniu z chmielowym. Bardzo przyjemny i kuszący. Smak: wytrawny, na końcu słodki, przechodzący w gorzki. Akcenty gorzkiej czekolady i alkoholowość. Dość rozgrzewające. Po chwili pojawia się kwaskowość charakterystyczna dla użycia dużej dawki ciemnych słodów. Fantastyczne piwo. Short’s Brew po raz kolejny udowadnia, że oferuje naprawdę ciekawe propozycje. Jest to wręcz oleista ciemna IPA do spokojnego sączenia. Zawarty w niej aromat nie może się znudzić. Smak również świetny. Ocena byłaby wyższa gdyby nie cena. Uważam że butelka 0,33 l nie powinna kosztować więcej niż 15 zł, co i tak jest już sporą kwotą.

This BEER tastes like cat pee and smells like cat pee. It's even better with the lights off. The cat pee is prevalent. Four out of five. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from trade with umich03jm. Big thanks, Jason! Pours nearly black with a beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate and coffee with a hint of pine peeking through. Taste is dark chocolate, roast, coffee - balanced with floral, pine hop. Pine hop bitterness lingers through the finish.
