Very dark, almost opaque black-brown. Yellowish-brown filmy head. It's a shame the head isn't a little fuller, but overall it looks pretty tasty.

Nice toasty, grain-room-floor earthy notes, sweetened by notes of chocolate and butter. A vague sweet-corn character is a little weird, but it's still a pretty robust bouquet.

Smoky on the palate, lightly charred and toasty rich. Palate tapers off pretty quickly, leaving a lighter residual character than you might imagine. Could use a little more body, perhaps, but the characters are pleasant and the palate is tight overall.

A nice little beer. Crisp, with dark, pleasant flavours. Very nice to drink indeed.

Ordered a 12 oz bottle at El Torreon in Colonia, Uruguay.

Appearance: Poured opaque black with nice tan head that didn't stay around very long.

Smell: Toasted malts and some chocolate in the nose.

Taste: Standard stout with a hint of sourness. Lacks the complexity and roasted undertones I expect in a 6.2% American stout. A little too malty after the first few sips.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied but definitely on the thin side. A bit off on the backend; no lingering roasted feel.

Overall: A passable stout but seems to be the least complex of Mastra's three styles.

Got this bottle (BBE 21 aug 09)somewhere in Colonia de Sacremento, Uruguay a couple days ago and am having it in my apt here in Buenos Aires now. Poured with a tan head that almost totally faded, no lace. Decent aroma: dark malt, roasty, a hint smokey. Flavor's off though, turning sour. And that's not helped by the thin body. Finish is dominated by sour. Not going to finish the beer.

I have a glass of dark matter in front of me. When held right in front of the light, it has the slightest hint of a brown tinge (which also suggests it's not completely opaque), but otherwise this is just very, very dark. No head, and nice beige lacing.

Not all that dark on the nose - roasty, certainly but has a quite delicious cocoa edge with a slight hint of vanilla. It's definitely got a sweet edge with maybe a very slight hint of sour at the back.

Taste is a bit more sour than the nose but is complemented by a steady sweet cocoa butter kind of flavour. There is more roasted malt on this than I got from the nose and it's quite smooth and drinkable. Palate is a bit thin in the middle, but that's okay because there's a toasty warm feeling that lingers on the back. Mouthfeel is full bodied and smooth.

This is probably a crap dark beer, because I really quite like it.
