Hoyne Brewing Co. – Dark Matter Review

The Dark Matter pours a deep chocolate brown colour with a thick and frothy head which leaves significant lacing on the glass’s sides. This beer smells of a chocolate and nut with a solid malt base and a touch of northwest hops to go with it. The taste starts off very smooth and light then a chocolate flavour starts to take over. This chocolate taste melds into a strong coffee finish that leaves the mouth waiting for more. Hoyne labels this beer as “Definitely not a stout, far from a porter, hardly a brown ale.” While this doesn’t leave a lot of options the taste resembles somewhere between a Brown ale and a Porter but not really either specifically. This beer has great dark flavour but tastes with the ease of a much lighter beer.

Alcohol – 5.3%
Size – 650ml bottles
