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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: pour dark black, looks thick, head is very dark brown and frothy.
S: dark roasted malts, chocolate and coffee notes.
T: the same coffee and chocolate notes. there also is a distinct spicy/herbal flavor that reminds me somewhere between coffee and wintergreen. im guessing more toward coffee because of a certain bitterness that is coffee in origin.
M: thick and coating, general flavor lingers around for a long time.
O: im impressed glad they rebrewed this, never got any of the first batch.
