look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from bottle into well-used tulip glass. Color is pitch black, Slightly aggressive pour produces three fingers of fizzy mocha head that quickly dissipates. Seriously, I turned form the glass, to browse a thread here head was just gone. Thin film left behind, spotty lacing. Smell is citrus hops, roasted malt. Taste is absolutely wow. I expected something different, more bitter, even though it's billed as a DIPA and I've not found those to be so. There is a tiny bite on the end, but a bit sweet citrus and a bit roasted flavor dominates. Mouthfeel is surprisingly creamy, which was also unexpected. Bitter roast aftertaste, floral burps.
Oh, and the title is a Primus reference. Excellence all around. So far, Short's limited releases this year have been killing it over last year's.

When Shorts says 'Double Black', they ain't lying. Jet black x 1000 is the color of this brew. A loose khaki head stays put at 1.5". It does settle to 1" after several minutes, leaving a coagulated barrage of large bubbled lace in its wake. Still, menacing, and daunting. Absolute killer wide ringed shattered lace all rather way down the glass.

I was forced to stir up this wicked head as to give it a fair chance of a smell rating. After said swirling of my nonic pint glass, dark chocolate brownies come to the forefront. A few more gentle swirls gives eminence to resinous, scorched hops, that bring to mind a charred pine forest. Not that I ever smelled, (or for that matter, want to) a burnt-up Christmas tree, but I have sometimes imagined it after dozens of times watching Christmas Vacation. Boozy.

The acrid dark roasted malts chant impending domination on my palate with every measured quaff. Rich, yet pointed - thanks to enough hop bite to climb itself out of the roasted malty quicksand. This is a battle between Bass and Treble. The Bass is boomin', but the hi-hat is chiming away. Balsy, with a evil grin - showing sparkling white teeth.

Mouthfeel is full bodied, but very airy, thanks to a beautiful amount of ultra fine carbonation. This is what separates the pros from the wannabes, IMHO. The drinkability of this ale is outstanding, thanks to the masterful kinetic body, which actually gives the hop bill more time to shine, rather than be smothered by a wilting, lifeless body.

Overall this is one bad mofo! Not quite the palate wrecker one might fear by being a double (black) IPA. Shorts def puts their skillful hallmark on the deeep daaaarrrk malt bill on this one, but never letting you forget they're the maestros of hop manipulation either. It's kinda like looking up at the hugest, most scary roller coaster in the park. Getting strapped in. And getting the ride you expected, but you didn't die. You didn't even shit yourself. You loved it so much, you got back in line and took it for another ride. Then you gleefully dreamt about it that night, while unknowingly grew a bigger pair.

Dark Ale with distinct hop aroma, getting the Apollo scent but I'm not quite sure. Hops and coffee on the nose. Mouth feel is wet, malty and delicious. Great lacing, let it sit as it just gets better. i get black patent malts heavy with no smoke but a coffee grind palette and a slight sweet maltiness. IBU's are there but not a dominant hop finish but very crisp, fast finish. FINAL WORD: Shorts did it again, this beer is very good for the style, very nice for its style. I'd buy it again. cheers

Thanks to Jeff for this one! Pours a menacing shade of black, no real color can be detected from this one. Light-tan head, a bit lighter than I would expect for a beer so dark. Aroma is full of nice toasted caramel malts and deep, roasted malts. Not picking up much cocoa or chocolate, mostly just a deep roasty aroma. Hops are present as well, after all this is just a black DIPA, right? Mostly heavy on the pine needles and florals, but the citrus notes come alive sometime during the latter half of the beer.

The aroma leaves no secrets as to how this one will taste, maybe aside from the fact that the hops are a bit more pungent on the palate than they were on the nose. A nice, steel-y caramel and deeply roasted malt backbone holds up a nicely constructed hop profile - more pine, pine needles, and some oily resin. Citrus is a bit buried, but eventually surfaces; grapefruit rind, lemon and orange zest. There's a heavy bitter and resinous flavor that resounds into the aftertaste. A touch of roasted malts also linger alongside the finishing hops. Medium bodied, not quite thick or sticky, somewhat dry and easily drinkable for a DIPA.

What can I say about Shorts that hasn't already been said? I love their willingness to try new shit. This was my first "black DIPA" and it was pretty damn good. Unique, interesting, tasty, and extremely drinkable.

EDIT: 3/24/2013

After plowing through my own six pack, I realized I like this even more than I originally thought. Hops had faded a little bit, leaving the beer more "stout" like, but it was still delicious. I got more bitter cocoa notes this time that I wasn't getting before. Very roasted, tasty, and unique - like a stout that has been overhopped to oblivion.

Head is slow to form, but eventually forms a finger of solid, dark tan head. Retention is decent, and lacing is nice. Brew is a beautiful dark coffee brownish-black.

Ruby red grapefruit aroma bodes well for this Black DIPA. Some earthy and piney hops, as well. Dark chocolate roasted malts and a sweet honey aroma linger in the background only.

Big dose of chocolate, followed by citrus hops, finished with roasted malts and earthy hops. Long lasting roasted finish which intermingles with grapefruit pulp and citrus peel. Hints of mint, burnt coffee, and cream.

Medium feel, silky and smooth, yet lively. Long finish.

Black IPAs and hoppy stouts can fall into a gray area where what they're really trying to achieve can be a bit muddled. I think this one hits the target pretty well. The focus, from the aroma through the finish, is on the hops, although the dark roasty malts are very present.

Completely opaque, black and with a small tan head that sticks mostly to the side of the glass. Color reminds me a of a stout or porter. Smells of roasted barley and citrusy hops. Some coffee and chocolate notes in there as well. Taste has the roastiness somewhat subdued and well-balanced with the bitterness and flavoring of the hops. Finishes dry with the alcohol well-hidden. It teeters on the edge of being a stout, but not quite there. The hops are definitely in the spotlight here. The mouthfeel is moderate and lightly carbonated. Overall, I like these black barleywines. This is a style that I would like to see more. Maybe I'll brew up a batch of my own, and use this as a standard. This is a good brew!

Bottle into tulip

Appearance - Black with a 1 finger slightly off white beige head. Nice lacing.

Smell - Very rich in the dark malt category. Has dark coffee, dark chocolate, and sort of an in and out floral hop character that blends nicely with the roastiness.

Taste - First you get a nice semi piney, semi citrusy, resin, and bitterness. As the bitterness begins to mellow just slightly, you enter an entirely different stage of flavors. The end flavor is roasty and somewhat smokey flavor. You get some dark chocolate, coffee, char, and just slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Full bodied, medium carbonation, refreshing smooth.

Overall - Good beer. Unique style of beer. You feel as if your drinking two styles of beer at once. On one hand you have all of the citrusy goodness of an IPA, and on the other roasty characteristics that closely resemble a stout especially upon smell. Not dissipointed, glad I tried it.

Thanks Jim & Renee for this one!

Jet black with tan foam, spray of spotty lace in the glass, initial billowing head dwindles to a bare skim after a few minutes. Surface is patchy with clusters of larger bubbles here and there.

Great piney hop aroma melded nicely with roasted malts, lightly sweet chocolate and coffee traces.

Big flavors of blackened malt and piney hops. Extremely smooth and silky with a nice lingering resiny hop flavor, green and coniferous. Slight malt sweetness, creamy and smooth feel, light carbonation. Damn this is good.

Poured on tap at Churchkey DC into a tumbler.

Off tan brown head produced and presented one finger tall, kind of a creamy appearance. Very very dark dark brown walnut like black body. Brew keeps a real solid puck while drinking and leaves lots of clumping lacing too.

Great solid nose on this beer. Airy dry chocolate, almost powdered cococa, but also with a milky sensation. Lingering mild roast as well. Solid.

Taste brings a nice soft citrus body to the palate with lots of grapefruit. Great meld of hop orange bitter and roast character dryness. Excellent feel on this brew with creamy and coating characteristics that hit the tongue so perfectly. Chocolate nose sensations don't seem to come through so much upon the taste.

Really loved the feel on this brew more than anything and it brings all the good qualities of this style together. Real nice black ale.

Bottle shared with stillmatic2232, thanks man. First beer tried from Short's.

Pours black, with a one inch head, and not much lacing, really.

Aromas of pine, grapefruit, chocolate and coffee. Great aroma.

The aroma is better than the taste. Slightly watery at times, slightly muted hop flavor. The flavor is good, I just want more of it. Low amounts of roasted malt, some chocolate, pine, and grapefruit.

Medium to thin bodied, slightly disappointing. Crisp mouthfeel, finishes creamy, however. Fairly dry.

Pretty good, but not one of my favorite black ales.

I bought this bad boy about two months ago, tired the first 5 fairly fast going to finally give it a proper rating.

Very deep powerful chocolate and roasty aroma. finger of head when poured vigorously. choppy lacing. looks vigorous when poured. Pitch black not unlike the night's sky. noticeable relatively rapid carbonation bubbles rising.

hoppy but nothing too intense upfront. A bit of a bitter finish but I think this one might have done a bit more tongue bruising back a month ago. Very thick and lowish carbonation. Robust but not overwhelming. Alcohol in the finish but hidden everywhere else. chewy texture.

Overall: A very very solid beer. I would say a close second among Black IPA (just trailing Stone's 15th anniversary). I would recommend drinking one at a time, not only for the ABV but also just to spread the wealth.

I picked up a bottle of Short's Goodnight Bodacious last week for $2.19 at The Lager Mill. This is the first time Short's has bottled this beer, I've never tried it before and haven't really heard much about it, so lets see how it goes. No visible bottling date, but I know it's fresh. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a snifter.

A- The label is pretty nice looking, the picture of the constellation and the story behind the name is pretty cool. It poured a dark pitch black color that didn't let any light come through with a finger and a half worth of darker tan head that died down to a thick ring and left lots of nice lacing behind. This is a good looking beer, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness followed by a good amount of dark malts that impart some roasted, caramel, chocolate,and coffee like aromas. Up next comes the hops which show up nicely and impart a pretty piney aroma followed by an almost equal amount of citrus hops with grapefruit and citrus rinds coming through the most. The aroma of this beer was very good, it smells like a 50/50 mixture of an Imperial Stout and a Double IPA, I really liked it and I thought it was quite unique.

T- The taste seems to be pretty close to the aroma and it starts off with a medium amount of sweetness followed by a nice amount of dark malts that impart a nice roasted, slightly charred, slight coffee, and some nice chocolate flavors. Towards the end I get a good amount of hops that impart some nice citrus and piney flavors with the citrus seeming to stick out the most with some nice citrus fruit rind flavors. It had a higher amount of medium bitterness with a roasted and a resiny hop aftertaste that really sticks around. This beer has a really good taste to it that's intense while still being very well balanced, I really enjoyed it.

M- Fairly smooth, hidden alcohol, slightly creamy, on the medium side of being full bodied, with a good amount of medium carbonation. This beer had a good mouthfeel, it was a little thick for the style, but I thought that the extra thickness worked well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a very good beer and a good example of the style, but there's no confusing this with any other American Black Ale, it's a completely different animal, it's very unique. This beer had ok drinkability, it went down fairly smooth and the flavors did a great job at holding my attention, but it's a little too intense to drink multiples of, so I think one bottle is enough for me. What I liked the most about this beer was the aroma and taste, they were really nice, intense yet balanced, I really liked that. What I liked the least about this beer was nothing, I can't say that there's anything that I didn't like or would want to change about this beer, it's great just the way it is. I would for sure buy this beer again if they release it again, it's already all gone in my area, so I'm glad I picked up a few of these, I recommend this to anyone whole loves Black IPA's and all around intense beers. All in all I was pretty impressed with this beer, I always expect good things from short's, it's what they do, but I didn't expect to like this beer as much as I did, it really won me over. Short's shows you can take some robust malts and combine them with some intense hops and bitterness and get a great tasting yet well balanced beer that isn't dull in the slightest. Great job Short's, you guys continue to impress me with your awesome and unique brews and this one is no exception, I can't wait to see what other new and crazy beers you have waiting to be unveiled.

12 oz into snifter. Looks like a stout from pour as well as throughout drinking it. Black body, creamy brown head, looks bodacious...
Hoppy on the nose, nice malt as well. Taste is unique, hard to pinpoint of this one bottle, but not bad by far.
Mouthfeel is a combo of porter and pale ale, not really dipa feel. Really smooth, creamy.
Overall, shes a keeper in my book. A different take on something that is a staple now in most fridges. Prost to Shorts on this one!

A - Pours opaque black, topped by a few fingers of slightly chunky, tan foam. Pretty good head retention and nice lacing.

S - Roasty malt mixed with piney hops. Not a super strong aroma, but enticing.

T - Leads with a small barrage of piney hops, then the hoppy bitterness melts into roasty bitterness as hints of coffee and dark chocolate slip through. There's a touch of slightly fruity sweetness in the background, enough to balance everything out, but that disappears for a dry finish. Seriously tasty.

M - Pretty thick and velvety smooth, with low carbonation.

Overall, very delicious. A unique take on the black IPA, and a damn good one. Probably my favorite beer from Short's, definitely my favorite bottled one.

A - Pours an impenetrable black with a finger and a half of mocha head. Left no lacing.

S - Dark roasted malts and coffee, followed by a small amouunt of citrus and pineapple.

T - Moderates between roasted and toasted malts along with mango and pineapple. Throws some banana into the mix as well.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O - Overall, It was definitely good, although it was far more like a stout than an IPA. Needs more balance.

Thanks to my friend Scott for sending this to me! You send me a lot of Shorts and they are very hit or miss, but this one is a definite hit!

I'm usually not a fan of black IPA's but I'm willing to try anything once. This beer is SURPRISINGLY good. Shorts Brewing has been hit or miss IMO but this one is excellent! A nice solid fairly malty backbone to complement the flavorful hops. Not too overwhelming on either the malt or the well rounded hop profile, I would love to have more than one of these, although I would feel much better about drinking it pretty fresh (as I just did). Good choice and thanks again, my favorite black IPA to date!

Extra from a trade with tectactoe, thanks bro much appreciated. 12 oz bottle poured into HF stemware.

A: Dark brown almost black body with tan 1-2 finger head, moderate lacing and retention.

S: Hoppy, piney and grassy, with some roasty malt character to it.

T: Hops to the smell, with a big roasty malt backing, not too bitter though, not alcohol presence.

M: Medium carbonation, medium body, wetter than most DIPAs, decent.

O: A solid offering from a small brewery, if available locally I would enjoy this if well-priced. Nothing to go crazy over, but a well-balanced brew. Glad to have tried.

A - Poured out one finger of mocha colored head with a pitch black body. Looks delicious. Yeast is present in the bottom of the bottle, which I would recommend pouring in which adds some flavor. Also above average lacing.

S - A whiff of this brings a balance that plays well with the piney hops and the black chocolate malts. There is a complexity within these two notes as they battle to overtake one another.

T - Here comes the piney bitterness with a nice follow up punch of the black malts. Next sip is chocolate malts followed by piney, grassy bitterness. The bitterness lingers on with the creamy chocolate notes. Not much alcohol present in this one for the 8.5%.

M - Medium to full mouth feel with a soft fluffy creaminess. Carbonation is present but the softness of the beer somehow covers it up as it goes down, in the end some carbonation starts to show through. Lovely.

O - This is the last of the six pack that was given to me as a B-Day present from a buddy of mine. All I can say is this is my all time favorite Black IPA and the best offering I have tried from shorts.! If you want an awesome black IPA this is a must try. Its to bad this is a seasonal beer, and I will have to wait almost another whole year to get some more. This beer is best fresh but with some age on it it smooths out considerably. Get this one Cheers!

I've long been a doubter of Shorts Brewing but having tried this offering, I'm a step closer to being a believer. This ale pours a deep rich black (almost stout like) with a very slight tan head and substantial lacing. The nose is perplexing. There are substantial hop notes with a good deal of pine and grass along side those of coffee and carmely roasted malts. Unfortunately there is also something slightly off and skunky in nature. The mouthfeel is smooth and clean. Medium bodied with a nice coating feel. It is actually lighter than I would have guessed it to be. The flavors mirror the nose. With a bitter piney hoppiness upfront followed by a deep coffee/chocolaty malty sweetness. This is damn good and one of the best black ipas I've had. Maybe there is hope for Shorts yet.

A - Pours a dee black with a two-finger foamy tan head. Heavy amount of sticky lacing.

S - Light amoun of roasted malts with some earthy hops.

T - Starts off with light citrus, mostly grapefruit. Finish has a nice mix of roasted malts and piney hops. Lingering hop bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

O - Good beer and one of the better black IPAs I've had. Nice combination of roated malts and piney hop. Recommended.

1/ 27/15 on neck of bottle

A- pours pitch black with a nice tan head. leaves a decent amount of lacing from a hardy pour.

S- dark malts with some alcohol.

T- not to far from the smell. alil bitter. very slight floral/ citrusy hop action trying to make a appearance but dominated by the roasted/ chocolate malt. also detect the slightest bit of coffee flavor from the malt.

M- medium/ heavy bodied. good carbonation.

DRINKABILITY- as i'm on number four of the sixer it's not terrible. won't buy again tho. too many hoppy brews out there.

Overall- I was honestly expecting more hop action coming from this brew. it's bitter and has a slightly floral/citrusy hop presence but it's pounded by the malt. this beer reminds me of I think it's anger by greenbush brewery and nighttime by lagunitas. it's playyyyyed! maybe it's the style TO ME but all these black ipa's seem the same. drinkable but nothing special. if you're looking for more of a dark malt driven showcase with some slight hop action this is a beer for you. I just prefer hop explosion.

Bottle poured into Duvel tulip.

A- A normal pour created a 1-finger, brown head. The body was a dark brown, nearly black through the middle. The head settled out to a thin foam and left awesome lacing on the glass.

S- Bold hopping at first smell. Further sniffs bring out rich, roasty malts in the background. Hops are initially leafy, tobacco-like. Hints of citrus zest come along later.

T- Much more balance than the initial aroma suggests. Roasted malts really hold their own and compliment the hopping with chocolate and light coffee flavors. Hops are really leafy, almost minty. Hints of spicy, medicinal hops give a slight bite in the finish.

M- Full bodied. Carbonation is moderate-heavy, and kind of needs to be to keep up with a fairly viscus brew. A little hop bite at finish. Well masked ABV.

O- Another great "outside the box" beer from Short's. It's difficult for me to wrap my head around the whole black IPA thing. To go and imperialize it just leaves me more confused. All I know is I like this beer.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 1/2013. Pours pitch black color with a 1 finger dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, pine, orange zest, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, orange rind, and floral hops. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of roasted malt and hop notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, roasted malt, grapefruit, pine, orange zest, orange rind, cocoa, light char, floral, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roasted pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, pine, citrus zest, cocoa, char, floral, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance and complexity of roasted malt and hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy, slick, sticky, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial Black IPA. Great balance and complexity of roasted malt and hop flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering as expected.

Awesome caramel colored lasting foamy head on thick black fluid. Missing much lacing.

Burnt, pine, grass, roasty, caramel, very stout ;)

Chewy, deep, smooth, delicous, super roasty without the burden of smoke. Creamy, heavy carbonation, high dry bitting bitterness, lots of heavy dark chocolate. Resinous, piney, green, dank burn.

Highly Recommended!!! Drinks a lot like a RIS... Thanks, Adam.
