COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

The_Osprey (9939) - 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)

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.

Tasty and clean sourness. Unfortunately there is no „stout” in this sour stout but I do not consider it a big flaw.

AirForceHops (8182) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 9, 2017
750 ml bottle, near black appearance, no head. Aroma of light vinegar, cherries skins, plum skins. Flavor is plums, sour cherry, mild oak vinegar, acidic aftertaste. Really nearly too much vinegar for my palate. I guess it is good for what it is. Depends on what you enjoy.

2.6
Luvystypotables (2117) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2017
Poured from a bottle, a cloudy dark brown color with a nose of brettanomyces, a bit of disappointment neither a good stout nor a good sour, light body with a tart nondescript taste and a brettanomyces finish.

3.7
beer-yum (2005) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 28, 2017
Restrained aroma in a thin black pour. Tart taste is a little one dimensional to start but builds to a complex and subtle beer that is eminently enjoyable in the end. Another winner from the Bruery.

2.8
furthur (1261) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUL 23, 2017
2015 bottle, very dark brown beer, almond colored head. Aroma is toasted batley and goat. Taste is vineagar, hydrochloric acid, lemon juice, lime juice. There’s no malt left now, just acid. Palate is medium, carbonation average.
