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.

750mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of sour dark fruits, some light roast and cocoa. Flavour is very lactic and puckeringly sour - very tart and sour, overly sour. Way too lactic and sour for me. Out of balance, sour and vinegary. Another untasteful Bruery vinegar bomb.

Bottle. Pours a brown-copper colour with no head. Smells of leather, raisin and generally sour-like. Flavour is dominated by sourness. Theres nothing that really tastes of stout at all. Enjoyable. 2014-03-29

Fra flaske p Cardnaltreff mars-14: aromatisk er dette er stilen p sitt beste, og smaken har en god og balansert surhet i seg som gjr den lett drikke. et l som kan fungere bde som aperitiff og avslutning p en god aften. Med bde brettanomyces og lactobacillicus, og det kjennes. Et godt l med personlighet.

Bottle at Cardinal, 2014/03/24. Black. Sour, but not too extreme. A lot of citrus taste and body. Nice!

Aurelius (5251) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Dark, ruddy cola brown-black. Sour, lambicky aroma. Waaaaaay sour. Unsweet stone fruit tones. winey. Medium to slightly heavy body. Dont drink too fast or itll take your breath away. Odd and enjoyable, but not something Id pay for. Thanks to Lance @ Proof. I bludgered this off some Ratebeerian @ Proof - perhaps mverity or others. My thanks.

Grumbo (2525) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle shared at BrewDog, Bristol. 2013 Edition, 7% ABV, expensive! Black colour, minimal beige head. Sour aroma, the like of which one would normally reject were it not its intended style, with hints of roasted chocolate and dark fruits. Heavy sour taste, subtle sweetness in background. Chocolate comes through. I like sour, I like stout - but not sure the combo is a style (or the beer is a price) Ill be rushing back to but that doesnt detract from it being a good beer.

CapFlu (5123) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Pours headless. Nose of blackberries. Some sweetness along with the tart yet somewhat flat through the finish with a lasting club soda completion. Im not terribly fussed about the beer, especially considering the cost. Purchased at The Strath at $19.90.

750ml bottle in a tasting glass. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of tartness/sourness, roasted and dark malts, and some dark fruits. Flavor a nice blend of the dark malts and sourness. Average texture. A really cool beer.
