COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

DiarmaidBHK (4085) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Draft at Capital ale house Midlothian. Pours black with a thin khaki head. It looks like a stout but smells like a sour ale with a hint of vinegar. Very tart and sour on the tongue with a hint of malt coming through. Not to everybody’s taste but I dug it.

Bottle. Pours black with a light tan head. Aroma is sour and vinous with a light coffee note. Prominent vinegar as well. Taste is similar but with a roast malt and slight peppery note. Roast and sour notes are on a more even footing in the taste. Medium smooth mouthfeel with a little carb. This is nice and interesting.

Pours very dark and tastes like a liquified Warhead sour candy. Thats not an all together bad thing.

2013 bottle to snifter. Black pour with a thin light brown head. Nose is tart like cherries or grapes, some wine oakiness too. Taste is sweet and tart. Good balance of wine and roasted stout characteristics. Thinner mouth feel than expected, but an interesting enjoyable beer.

Big bottle. Dark brown with white fizzy head. Aroma is dry and tart; grapes, roasted malt and a bit funk. Taste is on the sour side; roasted malt, barnyard, lemon/lime, chalk and some red wine notes. Incredible beer

fluffy (2284) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2013
definitely an unusual beer, the sour is pretty prominent, giving it a sour cherry/pomegranate twang. not too harsh, but not something id want to drink a lot of.

En stoutsuring alltså.. Hmm ja lite kul faktiskt. Kaffedoft. Syrlig och frisk men inga bärtoner. Lågt Ph Rerate. Hos Hasse: domineras av stall och funk och diskret drag av stout

Pours black with a strong sour nose. Taste is tart and funky that finishes with a little smoke from the stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
