look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours pitch black with mocha head heavy lacing at the edges and a good dusting on top.

S: Aroma of citrus and ash. Some orange rind and pine. Pure bitterness with dark deep roasted malt scents.

T: Bitter orange peel, deep woods pine and charcoal. Deep bitter black patent malt battle with citrus hops. Goodnight bodacious has a Bitter finish that was hard won by the hops. Flavorful is an understatement and this is tasty but definitely would be tough to have more than one of these for me. Ideally I would have had half a bottle and I like DIPAs. Lots of licorice / anice flavor in here as well.

M: Medium to thick body for a ABA, medium carbonation.

O: Overall this is a tasty American black ale. It is too much for me right now however. Maybe its spring however I am just not a fan of this right now. As fate would have it, I dumped 3/4 of this beer on my rug. Oops. Maybe it was predetermined as I wasnt particularly interested....
