Tart of Darkness is a traditional stout that we aged in used oak barrels from The Bruery that had previously housed beers such as Cuivre™ or Black Tuesday®. 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.

It feels too thin to be a stout, but it’s 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 don’t give a shit because it’s 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. I’m 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

Le classique look d’un bon verre de Kik Cola.  Cette version à 7% dégage des parfums qui finissent par m’intéresser.   J’y trouve en rafale du caramel, des petits fruits rouges, du vin aigre, des notes rôties, du chocolat et des microbes.  En bouche,  c’est légèrement autre chose.  Beaucoup de notes acides.   C’est agressif.  Ça manque de politesse.  Le vinaigre écrase tout. Au palais, se manifeste un corps qui fait le style.  En finale, c’est ma langue qui saigne et c’est mon estomac qui commande tout un flacon de TUMS Ultra 1000 qui, au demeurant, est casher et faible en sodium. Lourdement surévaluée. This is a #$@₩ joke.

Oh lord I had this baby out of the big 25.4 oz bottle. Pours out a dark brown/black with little to no head. The smell really comes across as a wine. And the taste is so sour. It really smells and tastes like a super tart wine. Sour grapes come out a lot with each sip. But you also get hints of the oak barrel coming through. The sour aftertaste lingers for a while. If you’re a fan of super sour stuff go for it! But in my humble opinion I’m glad I tried this one. It’s very unique, but not one I’ll be revisiting in the future.

2012 vintage. Almost black. Fizzy head. Aroma is rather subtle. Flavor is deeper. Fruity, wood, barnyard. Medium body. Tart, nice overall tingle, back of throat and tongue, lasting slow tingle. Some roastiness blended in there. Really nice.
