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.

Picked this up in a great trade with Mike! Pitch black pour with a nice two finger caramel-colored head with decent retention and minimal lacing. Very roasty, chocolaty nose with hints of licorice, coffee, molasses, subtle black cherry, and just a touch of honey, but probably only because I was searching for it. The taste is dominated by bitter dark chocolate, offset by a sweet root beer and honey combination that I really didn't care for. Hints of licorice, burnt coffee, vanilla, molasses, black cherries, and tobacco as well. The mouthfeel is moderately thick and slightly syrupy with medium carbonation and a bitter, slightly sour finish. Overall, this is yet another disappointing beer from the most overrated brewery in the world. I love when brewers go out on a limb and use unusual ingredients, but they never seem to work with Dogfish Head.
