A black beer with Thai influence. Brewed with brettanomyces, kaffir lime leaves and galangal (also known as Thai Ginger, but its not too ginger-like), this smooth, dry and roasty beer has clear notes of fresh citrus, crushed herbs and will complement a spicy curry beautifully.

Huhzubendah (3676) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Bottle shared by drabmuh at a local tasting. Thanks Matt! A: Dark brown in color, with a healthy, beige head. The appearance is the best aspect of this beer. S: Extremely spicy, herbal, vegetal. Whoa! T: Over the top. While I appreciate the extreme nature of this beer, as well as pushing the limits of brewing and what a beer can be, this is just hard to drink. Its incredibly spicy and vegetal, with an odd assortment of garden herbs present throughout the aroma and flavor. M: Medium body with fairly low carbonation. Again, this is an oddity. D: A pleasure to sample. I commend Patrick Rue and The Bruery for pushing the limits of craft brewing and embracing creativity. However, that doesnt mean I can, or would want to drink more than a couple ounces of this. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-18-2010

750 ml bottle courtesy of CaptainCougar, thank you sir - and thanks for hosting! Aroma of formaldehyde. Taste is cardboard and wet socks. Mouthfeel is foamy. This is just wrong.

Bottle at home. Thx dfclav. It's a beauty. Pitch black with a dense creamy brown head. Roasted spicy herbal aroma. Notes of berries, lime, ginger and rose hips. The flavor is very flowery with notes of berries, lemongrass, light soap, light ginger, light roast and some licorice. Awesome brew! Thanks Mike!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle sample. Pours brown with a large fluffy tan head. The aroma and flavor had some sweet malts, herbal and a strange spiciness, some roasted notes, citrus, with very light Brett character. Worth trying once, but it was not one of the favorites of the evening.
