Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States
dogfish.com

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

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.

notes from RIS tasting

A- opaque black with a finger of khaki head, coats the glass

S- dark chocolate bark, espresso beans, leather, roast, very enticing, bold, and dark

T- biggest improvement i've noticed from last year's batch, much bigger roasty coffee and dark chocolate flavors, bittersweet, some honey on the finish. some smoke even and a hard to describe leather/tar/tobacco note

M- could be a bit more viscous but still very coating and think

O- great example of an RIS, heavy in the dark cocoa/coffee department, much more so than i remembered from last years. not overly sweet and at $10 a bottle, very hard to resist
