Notes/Commercial Description:
Deep inside the Hadron Collider physicists hurtle sub-atomic particles with lightning speed on a collision course with each other. They do so in the pursuit of pure science, in the hope of one day being able to unlock the mystery of the elusive unseen fabric upon which our universe is embroidered: Dark Matter.

This is my friend Sara's favourite beer. I've been meaning to try it for a while.

A: Dark! Reddish hue when held to the light. Tan head.

S: Coffee, cocoa, dark fruits. Malty.

T: Roasted malt flavours. Cocoa, coffee, some nuttiness, a bit sweet.

F: No complaints.

Smooth, very drinkable. Nice sweetness, caramel notes, roasted flavours. A modest sort of brew, much more mild than the name might suggest.

A: Deep black brown with 5-6 fingers of light tan coloured head which slowly dissipated into a thin layer leaving small amounts of lacing.

S: Musk, wet earth, leather, wood and musk dominate the scent - reminiscent of a good men’s cologne.

T: Taste is similar in profile to the scent, but is more reserved or toned down.

M: Light to moderate bodied with low carbonation.

O: While this beer is not complex, it would do well with those entering the craft beer scene by giving them a safe intro beer and shows that a dark beer doesn’t need to be heavy.

650ml bottle poured into tulip 16/8/13

A looks like dark cola on the table but when held to the light it glows maroon, a few tiny bubbles and a slight haze, finger of light mocha foam sits for a few sips but leaves no lace

S over-ripe dark fruits, chocolate covered raisins, slightly nutty, iced tea, purple candy, and some dark caramel

T some coffee and coco on top of what I smell, a little molasses and brown sugar, a little different from the nose but still decent

M a little thin for the color but the bubbles give it some life, coco and dark fruit on the finish

O decent brew but nothing spectacular, doesn't really lack or excel in any area

I'm happy with this offering from a brewery I didn't know existed until my recent trip to BC, I liked their pilsner and would try more stuff for Hoyne for sure

Pours a deep brown with a good amount of tan head and good retention. Aroma is really pleasant, a layering of dark malts mingle with the malty base. Key notes are chocolate and plum. Taste follows moderate roasted and caramel malts overtop of a malty base, chocolate and plum again. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with excellent drinkability. Overall an excellent brown ale, possibly my favorite thus far, it really is an underrated style. I dock it a half point in the overall category for picking a silly name for a brown ale. With a name like Dark Matter, I was expecting a stout or porter.

On tap @ Garrick's Head.

A - Dark brown. Opaque. Thin layer light brown head.

S - Hard to pinpoint the style. Roast, choaolate and floral hops aromas.

T - Roast, a touch of chocolate, a light bitterness, toffee. Sweet with some bitterness.

M - Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation.
