Tart of Darkness is a traditional stout that we aged in used oak barrels from The Bruery that had previously housed beers such as Cuivreô or Black Tuesdayģ. We then brought them over to Bruery Terreux, added our special blend of souring bacterias and wild yeasts and watched nature take its course. The result is a perfectly tart yet awesomely dark and roasty, sour stout. Not a style you will see very often, and in our opinion, not a style seen often enough. This unique stout has notes of tart plums, roasted coffee, vanilla and oak.

One of my favorite sour beers. Very complex, balanced, great medium body with black fruit taste to it, fruity aroma and great oak barrel taste to it. Great overall beer, would definately recommend this beer if you are a fan of sours and stouts

Sweet and oaky aroma with some vanilla. Aroma really doesnít show the tartness like the flavour. Extremely tart with vinegar and raspberries.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2013 Aroma is a nice vinous sour with some dark fruit aroma as well. Do not get much, if at all, of a stout smell or roasted malt. Maybe some dark cherry and oak in the aroma. Taste is vinous sour. Prob 8 or 9 of 10 on my scale. Get dark fruit flavors, maybe some oak, and maybe slight roasted malt. Would not pick the base as a stout if I didnít know. Occasional hint of roasted malt or coffee, but thatís all. Sour dominates, but flavors are fantastic. - had a second time after oude tart. Get more of the roasted malt and slight coffee of the stout base. Very interesting with the sour. Very good but do prefer the oude tart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It feels too thin to be a stout, but itís a great sour. Great level of tartness.

Bottle. Pours dark chocolate brown with moderate off white head. Aroma is malt vinegar, cherry pie, and a slight hint of dark roast that really makes it. Flavor is sharply acetic upfront: vinegar with notes of a dark fruity red wine. Lip smacking tanginess from the dark acetic and acidic notes. A lingering red fruit sourness. Not as much stout in there, as this comes off more as a flanders red... but frankly, I donít give a shit because itís delicious.

Provisions version....Been fearful Dark leathery brown with some tam foam. Smells of molasses with a sour cherry and some lemon skin. Flavor is a nice, well less stout, but more brown ale with a good amount of clean plumy, lemon, lactic and cocoa, coffee, some vinegrated character. Iím really impressed with how much I like this. Fuck. Nice medium bodied with sharp and resonant carb with a dry finish. Nice beer. Really nice beer. Serving type: bottle 11-11-2012
