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.

350 ml bottle into a Stone IRS snifter.

A- 1-1/2 finger, dense, rich, dark brown head. Near black body shows dark brown-red edges when held to light. Head settles to a thin foam and leaves excellent rings.

S- Very aromatic and complex. Dark chocolate and strong brewed coffee with a brown sugar and hints of honey. Light raisin. Warmth brings a chocolate chip cookie quality.

T- More complexity. Dark roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate and raisins met by lighter, sweeter component (maybe the blending of brews referred to on the bottle). Roasted flavor almost gets smokey. Hints of tart berries or cherries.

M- Full body, well-hidden alcohol. Smooth with moderate carbonation and a clean finish considering the "size."

O- Very bold and complex. Maybe a touch too much roasted flavor, though it mellows with warmth. Glad I tried it. Worth the extra dough, but I probably won't seek it out.
