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.

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.

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.

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

Mahogany, no head. Sour lambic aroma. Sour berries. Sour taste, but still balanced. Sour aftertaste.

Aurelius (5590) - 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. Don’t drink too fast or it’ll take your breath away. Odd and enjoyable, but not something I’d pay for. Thanks to Lance @ Proof. I bludgered this off some Ratebeerian @ Proof - perhaps mverity or others. My thanks.

Grumbo (4120) - 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 it’s 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) I’ll be rushing back to but that doesn’t detract from it being a good beer.

Pours headless. Nose of blackberries. Some sweetness along with the tart yet somewhat flat through the finish with a lasting club soda completion. I’m 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.

3.9
Hoprider (748) - DENMARK - MAR 9, 2014
Clear dark brown in color. Very tart nose with lots of raisins, prunes and barrel aromas. Pretty much no roasted malts so this is much more sour than stouty... This is the case with the flavour as well. Well ballanced and complex with lots of vinous and tart, sharp and zesty flavours. Nice mouthfeel - half fizzy half creamy.. Long juicy aftertaste. Good stuff!
