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.

explosivedog (851) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 2, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2016 Serve from bottle. Aroma is earthy, balsamic vinegar, lots of dried raisins and prunes and some biscuit. Flavour is big tart balsamic, fruity dried cherry and prune, a large smokey bourbon note and then a dry biscuit finish to clean up. Surprisingly fizzy body. Gorgeous.

Dark sour and just oh so complex. Cherry notes meld into slight vanilla and chocolate after tones. A sour first a stout after

Big nose ! Lightly roasted coffee beans, plums, brandy, vanilla bean. Taste is in the opposite direction. Dried plums, tart cherry, raisins, funky earth, apple cider vinegar. Different sour, in a very good way!

heman (886) - Tychy, POLAND - OCT 27, 2016
W aromacie kwaśna kawa i wyraźne nuty popiołowe. Wraz z ogrzewaniem pojawia się dyskretna wiśniowa nuta i zapach mokrego drewna. Smak to totalne zaskoczenie. Właściwie ciężko doszukać się tutaj cech typowych dla stout-a. Piwo jest mocno kwaśne, znowu pojawia się posmak wiśni i niuanse dzikie. Dopiero po ochłonięciu, gdzieś w tle możemy znaleźć posmaki kawy zbożowej.

mgajdaczewa (1993) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 25, 2016
W aromacie to przede wszystkim stout, lekko zdziczały, z aromatami czerwonych owocw i beczki, ale też palony, lekko kawowy, beczka jest, ale prawie niewyczuwalna. W smaku... jest masakrycznie kwaśne, skojarzenia z lambikiem, nie ma tu posmakw czerwonych owocw, jest wieś, skra i kwas, dopiero po mocnym ogrzaniu w ustach wychodzi lekka kawowość. Szokujące, ale i smaczne doświadczenie.

Lagerboy (2136) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2016
1 PINT 9.4 FL. OZ bottle, 7% ABV, 2013 edition. Hueless black/brown, no head. Aroma of tart dark fruit, a whiff of dark roast. Taste is dominated by a sour dark fruitiness, notably plum, which pretty much smothers any other flavours. Soft carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. Odd and easy but still: DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

onceblind (8933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Must be aged because it still says 5.6% ABV. Dark cola brown hue with no head, and a pleasant tart earthy raisin and earthy lacto twang to it. Big sour flavor thats nearly puckering, with some dark stone fruit and dark Belgian malts, like dates and raisin and a kiss of apricot but also really darkly sour and puckering and damn delicious with all that wild yeast eccentric fruitiness. Really pleasant and dark.

Bottle shared with friends. Poured a clear dark reddish brown purple. The aroma is tart citrus, biscuit doughy yeast. The flavour is moderate sour with a fresh, yeast, tart plum, roasty malt, light dry coffee, light chocolate palate. Moderate sour with average carbonation.

In my opinion, Bruery beers can be hit-or-miss and so can dark sours, so I was apprehensive before I opened this bottle. I shouldnt have been, though, because this was sensational. Its sour, leathery, dry, and a bit fruity. Its complex without becoming either too malty or too acidic, and it was fantastic.
