Hoyne's Dark Matter is a dessert beer that's sessionable, too.
Hoyne Brewing Co. has been open in Victoria for almost eight years, and Dark Matter represents one of its flagship efforts. It’s no wonder why: the malty and mild beer was way ahead of the current dark lager trend.
It’s not exactly that—it’s more of a brown ale—but for a so-called “dessert beer” it’s sessionable and not too heavy, with a beautiful chocolate finish. It’s the perfect call for holiday parties or winter nights spent in, and earlier this year the brewery made it available in six-packs (instead of the usual tall bottles) for the first time. You don’t have to pour it into a glass anymore, but you probably should.
