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.

Pours a deep dark brown with caramel colored head. The aroma is sour with barnyard notes, cherry, and raspberry. The flavor is again sour barnyard with a finish of raspberry chocolate.

Mostly tart, little darkness. Except in the appearance. Not sure how people pick up chocolate in this. Sour cherry throughout. Mouth-puckering tartness. 100% cranberry juice-like lingering finish. More like the Dark (as in the misery) of Tartness. But, hey, I’m not really a fan of sours.

Bottle. Aroma of sour fruit, chocolate, oak, and a bit if funk. Appearance is totally black with a thin tan head. Taste is sour fruit, chocolate, roasted malt, oak, and vanilla. Full body with low carbonation. Overall a great, unique beer.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2015 Sampled at GABF 2013. Dark brown/black with a beige head. Roasted malt, tart fruit, oak, sour, candy (sweet tarts?). Smooth, sweet and sour. Update: I’ve had this several times since and I actually really like it a lot. Ones of my favorites from this brewery and I thought it deserved a bump. I hope to properly rate this eventually.

From the tap. Good carbonation from the deep red ale. Nice foam emits a sour fruit aroma. Sour malts leave a fun finish that is more pleasant than I expected. Good beer.

Draught @ Smoke & Barrel, Washington. Pours flat black. Pure citrus nose. Yeasty hard candy sour flavour. On the edge, but not over it. A half will suffice.

Alla spina. Birra di difficile classificazione. Si presente come un a stout per poi essere passata in botte e prendere le sembianze di una sour ale. Aroma di limone, acqua stagna, tostato, al palato dapprima si vede la sua parte stout con malto tostato in evidenza per poi lasciare spazio ad aromi tipici da sour ale quale un discreto acetico, acido, muffa e legno.

An amazingly good tart beer. I had it from a tap, and it was simply amazing. Even my sour hating wife loved it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice tart aroma, could be a little more prominent though. Taste is just how I like it, very sour. So tasty.
