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.

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!

Dark Brown with low carbonation, no head. Vinegar, sour plum and oak notes predominate. Not much in terms of stout character present.

JStax (5199) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a near black with a ring of white foam around the edge of the glass. Aroma is full of raisins, tart fruits, crabapples. Taste is rich, dark tartness. Sour finish. One of the most sour beers I’ve had to date.

vtafro (6665) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2013
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.

Bottle share thanks to Paul, nice reddish brown pour with a bit of white head. Aroma of some cherries and a bit of vinegar/vinous character. Taste is some cherry and dark malt with some nice tartness.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours with a nose of baked sour cherry. Flavor is dark chocolate soured on flatbread. Nice mouthfeel. Good beer.

Lukaduke (3009) - Gray, Maine, USA - APR 17, 2013
Pours a mahogany ruby brown color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose is very vinous with notes of cider vinegar, pinot noir and a roasty chocolate malt backbone. On the palate it follows suit but is slightly disjointed. Nice levels of acidity and not overly acetic... but lacking a overly complex palate... very flemish in its character with a long lingering pucker.

Another gem.... balsamic vinegar wet wood and stale coffee dominate this typically substandard bruery beer.

srobi003 (58) - odenton, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2013
Aroma-Aroma smells like sour cherries also getting a vine-type smell as well. Also getting a slight roasty note. Taste-Taste is really sour probably the most sour tasting beer I have ever had this is up there with Weyerbacher Riserva 2010. not really getting any stout like characteristics. I am getting some oak like character, but its more like oak tannins than anything else. Appearance-Very dark-brown with a slight red hue. The head was off-white and disappeared quickly and left no lacing. Overall-A really good beer. Very interesting indeed, it is something I would like to get again but it is a little pricey

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 Delicious sour and fruity aroma on the pour. Almost looks like a coke with all the carbonation and dark color. Very tart and lots of bubbles but the fruity sourness and sweet oak male this shine. Stoutness is interesting but very subtle, comes thru the most in the palate to me. Fantastic.
