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.

Bottled in November, 2012.

Pours dark and oily. Corduroy-brown milk chocolate head of loose foam.

Sweet milk chocolate cocoa powder. Moderately light roasted coffee. Notes of melting milk chocolate. Hints of dark, almost burnt caramel in the background riding on the well-cloaked ABV. Well-toasted, rich malts come forward as it warms.

Somewhat roasted malts with a touch of bitterness on the tongue is followed by silky dark chocolate. Honey with suggestions of a lemon-drop appears in the center of the finish, which is followed by a sense of dry cocoa powder.

Wonderfully smooth and subtle. Well-integrated, luxurious components. A delicious, complex imperial stout without any burnt roast bitterness that's easy to savor and sip.

A: poured into a DFH snifter to a deep black with a two finger dense tan head that retains well and leaves good lacing
S: smells of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and a little something extra that's like molasses.
T: taste is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, gesho root, and some honey sweetness. swallow brings more roasted malt and coffee
M: smooth and velety on the palate with a decent amount of heft. carbonation is soft and adequate. the finish on this beer is a little drying.
O: Just as good as I remember the first run being. Great flavors, great complexity and just an all around fantastic beer.
