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.

Tasting at Papsø’s
Clear sour aroma. There is some mild roasted malt flavor, but overwhelmed by a very strong lemony acidity. The chocolate and roasted malt flavor is good, and well compounded by the acidity.
Very good.
