If you know what you're doing, and need a legit post workout product, this is the best you can get. My recovery has been so fast and I feel a significant difference in strength.

I was so excited that MHP was bringing back some of their original products. Loved the original Dark Matter but didn't care for the new receipe that came out a couple years ago. But now they brought back the original receipe and I'm so happy they did. I look forward to drinking this stuff after my workout and it seems like it helps a lot with recovery. Thank you MHP.... now I gotta cross my fingers that they bring back Dark Rage haha

I've used this product for years and always loved the taste and the results. But now when they came up with the new formula the taste is not even near the same. It tastes like grape powder mixed with sand. Will not order it again until MHP goes back to old dark matter.

The original dark matter made me look forward to working out. I gave it a 10/10. I must have went through 50 jars of them. Loved them! One day I ordered a jar and it was much smaller in size then the original one I seriously think tasted worse then pea water so I stopped ordering any products by dark matter. Finally I heard dark matter came back with the original post workout but there is no protien in it. I will never be ordering any products from this brand.

Recently had to stop taking this product due to severe stomach issues. I have never taken a supplement that has made me feel this sluggish and uncomfortable. Took Dark Matter for a little over a month and the side effects started to far outweigh the positives, and for this reason I have to give it this rating.

This product worked great for my post work out drink. The typical soreness I have the morning after an intense workout was drastically reduced. This also gave me energy after the workout to finish up my day without dragging my feet any. The drink itself is somewhat thick which seemed to be slightly filling after the workout also. I recommend trying this product, you wont be disappointed!

MHP what have you done! They completely ruined the great, original Dark Matter with some strange new formulation. After customer complaints, they've tried to return to what they're calling the original but it is definitely NOT the original (the newest version has a yellow neckband around the jug). The taste and consistency are more like the original: not as good, but not terrible. The new stuff makes you poop green for at least a day though. The original didn't. No big deal. But what IS a big deal: the original had 10-12 grams of good protein per serving. The newest version has 2-4 grams of PEA CONCENTRATE with a touch of whey. So you've basically got a good post-workout carb powder now, without any protein at all. I add a scoop of vanilla whey isolate to it, but I won't be ordering this product again. It's definitely not a return to the original formula no matter how they try to spin it.

I'm writing this with the hope that another negative review will help spur MHP to bring back the old formula. I would immediately change my rating to 10/10 in both overall and taste ratings if the old formula returned. The taste was great, with a blueberry Smartie kind of taste and a unique texture. I recovered from workouts nicely, nicely enough that I didn't think twice about making a somewhat expensive product a staple supplement.

First let me address the fact that this is indeed not as good as the original formula. However, it is still an incredible product. This is not a protein supplement so those people who have given it bad ratings for that are naive. The texture is awesome too. Kind of like a liquified jello. This supplement is right up there with afterglow, aftershock, torrent and the original dark matter. I love it. Price is not ideal but I will buy again

This post workout has helped tremendously with recovery times and soreness, I couldn't imagine trying anything different anytime soon. I do have to comment on the flavor though..my first bottle was rather hard to stomach but once I got used to it I really think I like it best out of all my supplement flavors. Give it time to work and let you grow after those intense workouts and see what you think of the flavor when you see the results. It's working for me!

I believe in Brand Loyalty, and MHP doesn't let me down. This is great tasting, mixes well, and definitely aids in my recovery. Strongly recommend this.

This new formula is horrible! It tastes like blue raspberry flavored saw dust. Additionally it makes me poo green!!! I ordered this as I used to use the old formula a few years back, and loved it. this new stuff I won't even use anymore, after about 3 days. Very very disappointing...

Let me off by saying. this new formula is absolutely annoying. The old formula used to taste great, a little hard to mix but the consistency was kind of thick and tasted awesome. It was the only supplement I could use to get through a whole week starting back to the gym. I get soreness so bad I can barely move that muscle. This product stops it. It worked amazing. 10/10 This new formula (didn't realize it at first) I thought it had more protein. I was confused when buying it. and I dont remember it having wheat in it before. (I am sensitive to wheat). This new formula turns my droppings like radio active green, which never happened before with the old formula I took for 2 years. It's watery, Chalky. I'll handle it for now if it has the same effect but stop the nonsense, bring back the old stuff. 5/10 I've read a few posts where people have contacted and MHP said they were bringing it back. That was a year ago...
