COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An English style robust Porter with huge malt notes from Chocolate and Black malt matched with a huge use of Crystal malt to lend ruby hues to the corners of the glass. This dark brew is then highly hopped with imported Northdown and First Gold hops to lend a subtle earthiness in character.

Huhzubendah (2615) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 7, 2012
On draft at Capitol City Brewing Co. in Virginia. The beer is dark brown with a tan head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. Malt, roast, and chocolate are the main forces at work here. Pretty good. Decent balance. The main issue I have this brew is the body, which is thin and watery. Overall, this was one of the more enjoyable beers I have had from this brewery.
