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.

Much more bitter then a traditional stout. Almost a vinegar like taste which wasn't desireable.

Amazing beer. One of the best I've ever had. If you're a fan of stouts this one will for sure be on the top of your lists.

There was an off flavor like burnt (not roasted) malt along with a strong vinegar flavor that threw me off a bit here, as well as a pretty watery mouthfeel that I was not expecting.
