P: 750ml bottle into a Dogfish Head Signature glass.
A: Black as can be with a huge creamy dark tan head that hangs out for a while. Nice lacing that remains throughout the glass.
S: The immediate aroma is caramelized sugars, followed up with roasted malt and coffee and exceptionally dark chocolate. Some honey that becomes easier to pick up and the beer warms in the glass. Very nice aromas, they calmly invite you want to take a sip.
T: Dark roasted grain with a oh-so-slight charcoal flavor in the finish. Bitter dark chocolate without a doubt, maybe a touch of the coffee that was present in the aroma but the chocolate is much more pronounced. Alcohol is hidden well and only becomes apparent as a warming sensation in the back of your throat.
M: Thinner in body but creamy on the tongue and the flavors linger nicely. Carbonation is moderate and comprised of tiny bubbles. Deceivingly smooth and drinkable for 9% ABV.
O: This is a really nice, complex, imperial stout, I'm sure the more I drink it the more I'll find in both the aroma and flavor. This isn't the first bottle of Bitches Brew that I've had but it's the first I've sat down and dissected and I think I'm even more impressed with it's complexity. I'm glad Dogfish continues to brew this beer as it's worthy of a year round release. Bitches Brew is highly recommend, please find a bottle and give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
