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.

Poured from a 750ml bottle, thanks to the Boise crew. Tart, raisin, chocolate, slight nail polish. Very interesting.

Bottle as shown. Pours a dark amber with beige head leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is funk and sour fruit. Medium mouthfeel with a sour fruit and light maltiness with nice tart finish. A very good sour from the Bruery.

Bottle from Capone’s.. Best name for a beer possible.. Pour is the darkest purple ive ever seen.. almost black with a thick off white head and moderate lacing.. Aroma is sour.. with a heavy grape scent.. Taste is tart right off the bat.. grape, cherry, pluot.. with a delicious long tart finish..Mouthfeel is light.. makes me salivate..Easy to savor.. a really creative dark sour that I just love.. one of the most productive beer days i’ve ever had.

Drunk with Dom and Dan. Pours like a thin stout. Dark. And tart. How appropriate. Sour and wild. Totally delicious. More please.

The Bish’s birthday present from Cotteridge Wines. Wow. Quite exceptionally good. The sourness is so full and intense, but perfectly balanced. Almost seems a shame to swallow it - I just wish it could live on my tongue forever. Good colour and scent also. One of the best ever.

It looked like a stout but there the similarities ended really. Sour and wild it was, and very very good. The name tells you all you need to know. Super.

Sour. Not as over powering sour as the pure sours. Slightly better than funk metal. Less funk. Slightly better put together.

Opaque black beer, short lived tan head. Dry palate, light and a little crisp. Very tart beer - sour and vinegary. Lemon acid toward the dry finish.

Bottle. The pour is dark with no head. The aroma is straight sour. The taste has some carbonation, but way too sour. Next. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
