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.

2010 bottling

A: Fully opaque black in color. Forms a modest, dark tan colored head that doesn't bother sticking around for too long, reducing to a bubbly ring around the edge. Very light lacing.

S: dark, roasted malts, licorice, honey, and a bit of wood.

T: taste is quite pleasant. Dark malts, dark fruit, plums, raisin, honey sweetness, a little anise or licorice. Slight tartness and maybe a little touch of bitter chocolate, but the the dark fruit, honey, sweetness dominates.

M: full bodied, but on the thinner side for the style. A light blend of sweet, sour, and bitter. Lower carbonation.

O: this turned out to be a much better beer than I expected it to be. I nice version of double stout-a little thin-but sweet and flavorful. A nice beer.
