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.

Beese (3546) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2018
Keg at BrewDog Camden. Really dark purple, with a purple head. Strong aroma of blackberries, currants, some acidity and straw. Quite a sour flavour, and the tart elements of the fruit come to the fore. Really nice.

750mL bottle drunk 12/9/17.
Dark mahogany, undetermined clarity. Light tan head atop fades quickly to cover/ring.
Lactic acidity is prominent but allows plentiful, poignant berry and vinous notes in, as well. Tobacco, baker's chocolate and very light vanilla on the end, with no alcohol character and a surprising lack of any real aggressive notes. Barrel isn't overdone unlike so many other Bruery beers. No toasted oak notes, thankfully.
Quite nicely balanced in the mouth. Not too much acetic character, no big balsamic notes. Vanilla and tobacco notes provide plentiful dryness while tons of berries and moderate acidity linger on the finish. Tannic structure to the body with a malty, somewhat soft at times texture and moderate, engaging carbonation. No alcohol or raw acidity on the finish. I think the relatively low abv (for the Bruery this is like an NA beer) and restraint on the barrel really wins out here.

Panel kwaśnych piw z The Bruery w MQ. Aromat czekoladowy, owocowy, jagodowy. W smaku kwas raczej stonowanu w porównaniu do reszty, choć i tak pokrywa niemal całą "stoutową" stronę piwa. Mocno owocowe, a przy tym przyjemnie gęstawe. Obok Griffona, jak na razie najlepsze.

Kiezmar (1057) - Krakow, POLAND - MAR 4, 2018
A little bit rustical notes, pralines, semi sourness, tarty, cherries in choclate. Smooth, good balanced.

QcBeer (222) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2018
De couleur brunâtre foncé, une mousse beige qui s'estompe rapidement en laissant un petit col sur le verre. Au nez, la cerise et le raisin sont très dominant. La pomme verte y est bien présente. Vinaigré et surette à souhait! En bouche, c'est acide et bien surette, un goût de cerise, pomme verte, c'est près d'un liquide flat sans être un coté négatif. Un petit goût boisé et vineux en arrière plan avec une finale qui tire sur la cerise et le raisin. Wow

Pours cola brown with a tan head that quickly fizzes away. Aroma of vinegar, blackberry, and cherry. Strong tart berry flavor with some roasted malt, and wood in the background. Very nice beer!

The_Osprey (10147) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2018
February 2018 - Friday bottleshare at Partizan Brewery. As 'Bruery Terreux Tart of Darkness', 2015 edition. Opaque black, foamy off-white head leaves dotted lacing. Aroma is tart berries, blackberry, a little vinegary acetic. Body is light and frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is tart, pretty acidic, tangy soured blackberries, little vinegary. Realistically not many people could drink a 750 of this – it boggles my mind that they serve it in such a big bottle. Have always been interested to try this, and it is decent in small amounts, but at £25 it's certainly not worth the price. (7-4-7-3-14=3.5)

MrTipple (7886) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2018
2Feb2018 Sweet, dark fruits, prunes, cherries, sweet oak, dark malts, prunes. Hazy, very dark brown, tiny, creamy, off-white head. Medium sour. Sour citrus fruits, lemon peel, lime juice, lemon pith, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Beautiful aroma, somewhat boring in palate. Bottle shared at Partizan - thanks to The_Osprey!

Leighton (23706) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2018
Bottle shared in Bermondsey / cheers to Danny. Pours clear reddish brown with a bubbly, khaki head. Plenty of vinegar in the nose, leathery berries, old wood, blackberry. Light sweet flavour with moderate woody dryness, super tartness, more berries, wood, hints of brown sugar, earth. Medium bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Quenching finish, a bit of balsamic vinegar, loads more tart and leathery berries. Fun.
