If you saw the first episode of Brew Masters, you have probably heard of Miles Davis Bitches Brew from Dogfish Head. This beer was brewed in honor of the 40th Anniversary release of Miles Davis iconic album Bitches Brew with original album artwork as the label. I would love to talk about the music, but sadly I don't know much about it; after drinking this beer, I have put Bitches Brew on my Christmas list (I hope Santa can deliver.)  I split this brew with my cousin in return for hooking me up with those Dark Intrigue's he brought on black friday. Here is the result:

This stout pours as black as night with a nice tan head that leaves good rentention so you get a little with every sip. The smell is roasty and malty, with honey which continues on through the taste. Up front, its sweet roasty chocolate with honey peeking its head in to say hello but fades quickly with a rather bitter finish. I did find the gesho root in this beer, or maybe I did (I have never had it before so I did not know what to look for, sorry.) When it warms up you taste and smell a lot more - it gets sweeter and the finish is much smoother.  I had this when I came back from a tap room so I wasn't about to pair it with a chili or curry as Dogfish Head suggests; instead my cousin and I snacked on some graham crackers which (surprisingly) smoothed out the bitterness in the beer and paired very well. Bitches Brew has a very thick mouthfeel to it with little carbonation. I have another bottle sitting in my cellar and I know Jared has a few as well so we will re-visit this brew when it's got some age on it - something tells me it's going to be a hell of a lot better than it is now seeing as it is already an amazing stout.
