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.

ljthiessen (1397) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours like a stout. Sour aroma, notes of chocolate, grapes, cherries, and a touch of coffee. Pretty sour taste, nicely balanced with sweet fruit and stout flavours. Comes together quite nicely.

tmrmwel (2204) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 13, 2014
Bottle, 2013. Pours black with a fairly big airy head. Aroma is very nice and sour with burned malts, balsamic vinegar, and a massive fruitiness, as well as deep dark whiffs of oak and leather. Medium body with creamy texture with soft to average carbonation. Flavour has an initial dryness with a tart fruity yeast and funky brett with lemon peel, but develops more rounded fruity and vinous notes of grapes and oak giving a nice and long tart finish.

Duchammer (186) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - APR 11, 2014
Poured a merky dark brown. Aroma was a nice mixture of fruit and roast. The taste had a subtle oak up front the it blended with the roast and fruity characteristics finishing very tart and dry.

DrunkSanta410 (970) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle, 2013. Pours a dark brown, opaque. Fast dissipating tan head. Aroma is tart, hints of red fruit, oak and funk / yeast. Taste is sour and tart initially, with oak and fruitiness initially transitioning to very light roasted malt undertones. Delicious. Palate is medium body, high carbonation. Overall very good, unique.

Cory (372) - , California, USA - APR 7, 2014
Bottle. Lemon tart with a little caramel underneath. Taste is sour, light on palate with a long sour finish. Its basically just a nice sour that’s dark. High drinkability.

MacBoost (1935) - Victor, New York, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle from craftshack. Pours a thin looking dark brow with almost no head. Aromas of blackberry yogurt, dark sour fruit. Taste is very dry and sour. Flavors of seedy blackberry jam, sour kefir, some lemon zest. Very bright sour notes coupled with some dry roast makes this a pretty deep and complex little beer. At a fair price point, I might add. Finishes with a lasting sourness and a light roast. Pretty puckering. I like this a lot.

mcberko (18599) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2014
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.

3.7
mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a brown-copper colour with no head. Smells of leather, raisin and generally sour-like. Flavour is dominated by sourness. There’s nothing that really tastes of stout at all. Enjoyable. 2014-03-29

Holmen1 (6310) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2014
Fra flaske på Cardnaltreff mars-14: aromatisk er dette er stilen på sitt beste, og smaken har en god og balansert surhet i seg som gjør den lett å drikke. et øl som kan fungere både som aperitiff og avslutning på en god aften. Med både brettanomyces og lactobacillicus, og det kjennes. Et godt øl med personlighet.

4.2
tandembrauer (1577) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle at Cardinal, 2014/03/24. Black. Sour, but not too extreme. A lot of citrus taste and body. Nice!
