In honor of the 40th anniversary of the original release of Bitches Brew, Miles Davis' 1970 paradigm-shifting landmark fusion breakthrough, we've created our own Bitches Brew -- a bold, dark beer that's a fusion of three threads of imperial stout and one thread of honey beer with gesho root. It's a gustatory analog to Miles' masterpiece.

22oz. bottle, split between two snifters.

L- Poured a thick, dark brown, very light head.

S- Very inviting aroma of chocolate, honey, and malt.

T- Very characteristic of an Imperial Stout - chocolatey, roasty, with a subdued but very welcome hop flavor. Lots of subtle and complex notes, with the honey pleasantly fading in on the back for a fantastic finish.

F- Just what you'd expect from an Imperial Stout - full-bodied and lingering on the palate, but certainly not syrupy.

As Bitches Brew is perhaps my favorite album of all time, I had to really press to set aside any pretensions regarding this drink, but the complexity and balance simply can't be ignored. Just as big, wandering, and wild as the album for which it was brewed.

Strong somewhat bitter coffee and cocoa nibs, and not much else. Ok, but nothing I would seek out again.

Bottle. I really liked this stout. Poured dark brown and looked great. Smelled subtly wonderful and inviting. Packed lots of flavor; nice blend of coffee, chocolate and malts. Started it a little cold which caused a slight bitter finish, but it warmed up nice and smooth. I recommend this beer and look forward to another some day.
