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.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2013 Aroma is a nice vinous sour with some dark fruit aroma as well. Do not get much, if at all, of a stout smell or roasted malt. Maybe some dark cherry and oak in the aroma. Taste is vinous sour. Prob 8 or 9 of 10 on my scale. Get dark fruit flavors, maybe some oak, and maybe slight roasted malt. Would not pick the base as a stout if I didnt know. Occasional hint of roasted malt or coffee, but thats all. Sour dominates, but flavors are fantastic. - had a second time after oude tart. Get more of the roasted malt and slight coffee of the stout base. Very interesting with the sour. Very good but do prefer the oude tart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It feels too thin to be a stout, but its a great sour. Great level of tartness.

Bottle. Pours dark chocolate brown with moderate off white head. Aroma is malt vinegar, cherry pie, and a slight hint of dark roast that really makes it. Flavor is sharply acetic upfront: vinegar with notes of a dark fruity red wine. Lip smacking tanginess from the dark acetic and acidic notes. A lingering red fruit sourness. Not as much stout in there, as this comes off more as a flanders red... but frankly, I dont give a shit because its delicious.

Provisions version....Been fearful Dark leathery brown with some tam foam. Smells of molasses with a sour cherry and some lemon skin. Flavor is a nice, well less stout, but more brown ale with a good amount of clean plumy, lemon, lactic and cocoa, coffee, some vinegrated character. Im really impressed with how much I like this. Fuck. Nice medium bodied with sharp and resonant carb with a dry finish. Nice beer. Really nice beer. Serving type: bottle 11-11-2012

Le classique look dun bon verre de Kik Cola. Cette version 7% dgage des parfums qui finissent par mintresser. Jy trouve en rafale du caramel, des petits fruits rouges, du vin aigre, des notes rties, du chocolat et des microbes. En bouche, cest lgrement autre chose. Beaucoup de notes acides. Cest agressif. a manque de politesse. Le vinaigre crase tout. Au palais, se manifeste un corps qui fait le style. En finale, cest ma langue qui saigne et cest mon estomac qui commande tout un flacon de TUMS Ultra 1000 qui, au demeurant, est casher et faible en sodium. Lourdement survalue. This is a #$@₩ joke.

Oh lord I had this baby out of the big 25.4 oz bottle. Pours out a dark brown/black with little to no head. The smell really comes across as a wine. And the taste is so sour. It really smells and tastes like a super tart wine. Sour grapes come out a lot with each sip. But you also get hints of the oak barrel coming through. The sour aftertaste lingers for a while. If youre a fan of super sour stuff go for it! But in my humble opinion Im glad I tried this one. Its very unique, but not one Ill be revisiting in the future.
