Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: TheFightfan1 on 06-13-2010

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: Black with a mocha head.

S: Earthy (gesho root?) nose with dark, roasty coffee notes and dark chocolate.

T: Dark roast coffee, dark chocolate and some earthy notes.

M: Full bodied and smoothish.

O: One of my favorites from Dogfish Head. Highly recommended. That said, I must admit, I listened to In a Silent Way instead of the album after which this was named, while drinking it.

Fun Fact! Gesho root is used in an ethiopian type of mead (honeywine), called Tej, so this beer contains two ingredients used in Tej.
