Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Re-reviewing this one, it's been about 3 years.

750mL bottle (bottled 2011) poured into a snifter. Pours an opaque oily black with a rich, dense mocha head. Gorgeous.

Aroma is dark roasted malt, bitter chocolate/cocoa, black licorice, and dark fruit.

Tastes rich, bitter, and chocolatey w/ some molasses and dark fruit.

Really smooth, full-bodied mouthfeel, with a very dry finish.

As good as I remember it. Despite some of the unconventiona ingredients, this is a pretty straightforward, traditional RIS and a pretty good one at that.
