Paid $8.99 for a growler at Party Town in Florence, KY.

Pours a chocolate colored base with a decent sized head, and minimal lacing. The aroma mixes chocolates with malt and a touch of vanilla.

The taste started off with a mild roasted malt, followed with a minor touch of vanilla and a nice finale of bourbon at the end, very unique. Low carbonation and medium-bodied keep it reasonably smooth in the mouth; and very drinkable and a great session beer.

Final Thought: One of a kind; there aren't many out there that have such a nice combination of ingredients.

Had this one on tap and the Amsterdam Alehouse in NYC. The beer they had on the menu was no longer on tap so I took one of these instead. This beer was a deep brown colored ale with a fizzy tan head on top. There wasn't much lacing really. The smell of the beer was sweet and malty, a little roasted also. The taste of it had a lot of sweet brown sugar flavors mixed with some roasted malt and what I think tasted like un-smoked cigar flavors. Very interesting brew here. The mouthfeel was nicely carbonated but had a subtle smoothness to it also. Overall I liked this beer, it bums me out a little that it's been retired. Glad I got to try it!

Serving type: on-tap

Brooklyn Dark Matter

Appearance: dark brown, medium-small head, and good lacing.

Smell: grainy malt, slight hops, and banana.

Taste: banana, slight dark fruit, and grainy malts.

Mouthfeel: medium.

Overall:
This is a good brew. The bananas can be tasted first followed by dark fruit. While not incredibly complex, this brew is well balanced and aged nicely. I waited almost a year before opening, yet I'm unsure how old it originally was.

Serving type: bottle

Reviewed from notes.

Pours dark brown win a somewhat thin tan head. Nose brings a good amount of depth with bourbon, roast, vanilla, and chocolate. He taste features bourbon and some oak along with roasted mmalt and chocolate. Hints of vanilla and booze. Good body with a nice boozy touch. Drinks quite well; really executed this concept quite nicely.

Serving type: growler
