Last night at a meeting one of the beers they were serving was from Magic Hat and named Heart of Darkness. I’m sure I have had the beer before, but in truth I have never been too enamored with their beers. The packaging generally was too cryptic to be able to tell the style of beer in the bottle and once you got it home you would find the beer was not something you really wanted to have more of than a single bottle. Well stop the presses cause we have a winner.
There is no other way to put it than to say Heart of Darkness is an excellent stout. Not too dry, not too hoppy, not too roasty, Goldie Locks would be proud and would make it her beer because it was just right. I wish I had taken note of this beer long ago, I suspect like most of their packaging, I just was not drawn to it. If you get a chance to try out Heart of Darkness, please do. I think you too will find it magical!
