COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed a stout (no, not Black Tuesday, this one is only 5% abv if you can believe it), but we then decided to throw it into oak barrels...and added our special blend of souring bacterias and yeasts. The result is a perfectly tart yet awesomely dark and roasty sour stout. Not a style you see too often - and in our opinion, not a style you see often enough.
Originally part of the Provisions series.

Definitely my favourite sour of all time! Was a little hesitant about a sour stout, but all my reservations were thrown out the window with my first sip!

Pours dark, dark ruby with a small, fizzy light brown head. Smells sour, pure and simple. Taste is sour cherries and other sour red fruits, with subtle hints of roast. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and very fizzy mouth-carbonation, The Bruery Tart of Darkness finishes sour and fruity.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2013 Im not a big fan of sour beers but, I really like this beer. It has an amazing taste. Goes down smooth. I cant wait to see what it tastes like after i age it two years ( update.) OK so I opened bottle one after a year and it tastes amazing. Got a little smoother but otherwise still tastes the same as a fresh bottle.

Draft pour at Bambinos. Pours super dark with a sour fruit, cherry aroma. No head on this one, but who cares when it tastes this good. Cherry flavor at first with a really long, tart, amazing finish. This is a very special beer, and so far, I have to say itís the best beer Iíve had. This is coming from somebody who seek out sour ales and Iíve been looking for beers exactly like this one. Canít say enough about this one. The closest to a perfect beer Iíve come across. If you love beer, you might want to try this one. If you love sour ales, this is a must try beer. Before I start rambling, long story short, I loved this beer.

The Bishís 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.

25oz bottle. Really glad I have 2 more. Pours a fantastic opaque black hue, off white head. The aromas are blockbuster, tart cherry fruit, cocoa, but a really interesting acidity. Palate translates so well from the nose, a burst of super tart fruit up front that lingers through the mid and once it hits the finish a lighter cocoa powder. Really roasty and delicious, but so balanced, maybe one of the most balanced offerings iíve had in a while. A seemingly flawless transition of sour and stout. Amazing.

Aromas of meaty soy, malts and worchestier. Thick tannish head and dark brownish black body. Meaty sour flavors some tart berry and malts. Sour and crisp on the palate. Delicious.

Big bottle. Dark brown with white fizzy head. Aroma is dry and tart; grapes, roasted malt and a bit funk. Taste is on the sour side; roasted malt, barnyard, lemon/lime, chalk and some red wine notes. Incredible beer

Poured on draft in a snifter. Immediate tart sour bite with a spicy after taste. Dark appearance with just the right amount of carbonation. A great beer if your a fan of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
