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.

This beer says it was bottled in 2012, I haven't really paid that much attention to the release of these beers, but they may do it every year now. I was under the impression it was for a commemoration of the album. Upon looking the album came out in 1970, so that would indicate to me that they made batches beyond the commemorative 40 year anniversary. I digress...

Appearance: I just love the way stouts look, it is what drew me to the style to begin with. This one is dark, like the album, pulling in every drop of the universe to combine various spectrum's of light frequency to form this amalgamation of darkness which is pure jazz in its truest of forms.

Smell: Dried fruits, molasses, charred oak, caramel

Taste: dark dried fruits, caramel, molasses, something else going on that I am not familiar with. Maybe its the gesho, I have not had that much experience with this plant. Maybe some burned latte flavors on the back end.

Overall, pretty much what you expect from an imperial stout. I would preferred that this beer came in a smaller container. Its pricey for what it is, and I am the only stout drinker around here.
