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.

Pour down the middle yields a big thick brown head and a black body. Plenty of lace left and good retention.

The aroma brings some lightly roasted coffee and chocolate.

The roasted malt dominates the flavor. Light sweetness and bitterness.

Super smooth and silky mouth feel that is softly carbonated and medium bodied.

Was wanting so much more from this. The Miles tie-in and the mix of stout and honey beer was intriguing. A little too expensive for what you get.

Poured at a good temp with a vast, frothy, textured, light brown, settles after a while, and a bit o lace. Color is an opaque brown black. Aroma is fresh and on the mild side & mellow- cocoa, roast malt, old leather. Flavor's like nose, understated, esp for an imp stout tang & very easy bitterness up front, fairly dry with sweet being residual. Body/carbonation are perfect, a tad chewy, a bit soft, yet not too. Finish is like flavor, longish, and super drinkable. Only the barest suggestion of alcohol. Solid beer
