BC Craft Beer Review – Hoyne Dark Matter

Hoyne Dark MatterHoyne – Dark Matter: Brewed in Victoria, BC this mystery style (I say it’s a Stout) beer comes in at a strength of 5.3% and was enjoyed in a snifter at home.

Aroma and Appearance: Pours a very dark brown with a finger of foam and no visible bubble action. Aroma is smoke, a touch of darker fruits and some toasted marshmallow.

Flavour: light smoke and toasted bread, overall light body and an unusual but pleasant mouth-feel and dry finish with a toasted bread aftertaste.

Overall Impression: I wasn’t sure at first as the flavours are quite subdued, yet overall it delivers pretty good and is a nice beverage.

Rating: I give it a 7/10 which I consider a very good rating, I didn’t feel like rushing out for another one but happy to grab one on tap if I get the chance or another down the road. I would recommend it to anyone looking to try a new beer!

Food Pairing: Either s’mores or smokey cheese.

It’s weird to see this so poorly rated online, I thought it was quite good once I started concentrating on the intricate flavours of it, what did you think?

  1. Yeah as I recall with this one, in the first few sips I didn’t like it very much, but as I drank it and discovered the flavours it grew on me quite a bit. That’s the biggest folly of competitions is that they miss out in discovering that you love a beer halfway through it, not all beers do this but Dark Matter totally did that for me. Hope they make it again!

  2. I am so happy with Hoyne’s Dark matter. It’s the first beer that I really want to just sit back & get the full taste of it. All other beers I just slug back & they don’t matter. Darker Matter’s taste keeps on lingering with such a pleasant pallet. It’s not a beer to chug back. It’s a beer for someone who enjoys life & has time for it. So many beers & dark beer have a taste that doesn’t last or watered down ,you may as well drink water. We travelled to the Netherland , Belgium & Prague but all of the dark beers I had couldn’t matched Hoyne. I was so glad to get back home to have a Great Hoyne Dark Matter Beer. 🙂 Len
