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.

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

Super tart! A great sour to make you pucker. Went and searched out a few more bottles of this. I only wish that some of the deeper flavors of this base style of beer stood out more, but does not affect my enjoyment if this wonderful creation at all. Must try! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aniela (4195) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2013
Draught at the Blind Tiger NYC sept 2012. Dark brown beer with no head. Sourish, berry and rubber aroma. Similar flavour. Nice beer with taste of swedish beer (lingon, tranbär).

DuffMan (8208) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Dark brown with a short-lived head. Intensely sour aroma and flavour, very lactic, and quite acetic, eclipsing any dark malt character. Too unbalanced for my tastes.
