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.

A: poured from a 750 ml bottle into a pint glass, nearly black with a huge darker tan head that is thick and rich leaving great lacing, clear

S: cocoa, coffee, dark chocolate, huge malt heavily roasted, vanilla

T: an excellent combination of dark chocolate and coffee flavored roasted malt, not sweet, nice hop bitterness present to balance malts

M: rich and thick, not oily or creamy though, higher carbonation than expected

O: nice imperial stout from a brewery that I don't immediately associate with the style

Dogfish Head Miles Davis' Bitches Brew 2013

Appearance-The beer poors and incredibly dark, chocolaty, brown with a good finger and a half head.

Smell-The beer smells incredible with hints of liquorice, dark fruits, chocolate, and a small amount of honey.

Taste-A pleasant syrup style sweetness which carries the chocolate/roasted flavor throughout the mouth. The honey plays a huge role, although mild, it is there, aids in the overall roasty-ness of the coffee flavor.

Mouthfeel-This is an impressive beer. There is a small bite up front. There is a type of thickness that comes in right before the roasty bitter finish that truly has a mellow character overall.

Overall-Outstanding. An Imperial Stout, with something more to offer with a cool jazz feel.
