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.

4/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 2010 bomber

A- pours a jet black, red tints along the edges, khaki head is very small but still remains floating on the surface

S- big nose of roasted malt, dark chocolates, roasted black coffee, sweet smells are mixed in im assuming as a result of the honey, there is another interesting sharp herbal smell that i assume is a result of the gesho

T- the taste is somewhat similar to the smell, bitter chocolate, dark roasted malts, there is a mid sweetness mixed in with a herbal hoppy flavor as a result of the gesho

M- full body with a pretty good amount of carbonation, slight alochol burn, oily on the palate

O- pretty solid RIS, wished I would have seen a little more out of the signature ingredients
