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.

Bottle courtesy of TooManyBeers.Tart, funky, woody, balsamic-like cherry aroma. Dark brown with a moderate fizzy, quickly dissipating head. Very tart sour cherry, balsamic-like acidic - as well as lactic, funky, woody flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation. A nice one for my 1900th rating.

750ml bottle pours a watery, translucent mahogany amber with some clumpy white head. Nose of rhubarb, strawberry, malt, toast, grass. Flavor is very tart, grapefruit pith, rhubarb, vinegar. Acetic finish. Fairly well balanced though.

jbruner (3849) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2013 Pours an opaque black from the bottle with bubbly off-white head that continually effervesces. Aroma of tart sour funkiness that has some great dark fruit esters. Taste follows, super tart but an interesting chocolate and roasted make in the middle. Damn good. Bottle says 7% abv.

Johnsense (1280) - - MAY 30, 2013
Dark brown pour, low carbonation. Tart candy aroma, Raspberry vinagerette come through in both taste in aroma. Also taste of Oak, Red wine, very slight roast from the stout comes through in the finish as this warms. I like what the Bruery was going for here but the sour qualities overpowered the stout. Nice thick mouthfeel!

Bottle. Black pour with no head. Sour and fruit like aromas with little to no malt tone. Flavor is light brett, dry tart fruit, and some hints of stout this once was.
