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.

Big bottle. Dark brown with white fizzy head. Aroma is dry and tart; grapes, roasted malt and a bit funk. Taste is on the sour side; roasted malt, barnyard, lemon/lime, chalk and some red wine notes. Incredible beer

definitely an unusual beer, the sour is pretty prominent, giving it a sour cherry/pomegranate twang. not too harsh, but not something id want to drink a lot of.

En stoutsuring alltså.. Hmm ja lite kul faktiskt. Kaffedoft. Syrlig och frisk men inga bärtoner. Lågt Ph Rerate. Hos Hasse: domineras av stall och funk och diskret drag av stout

Pours black with a strong sour nose. Taste is tart and funky that finishes with a little smoke from the stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draught at Sour Beer Summit at Roscoe’s. Black color with tan head. Intense lactic aroma of sour cherry. Taste is dark malt, lactic sour, and black cherry. Sour, dark, and surprisingly smooth.

Bottle. Pours black with a nice thick creamy head that leaves beautiful lacing. Taste is overpowering SOUR. Nothing else comes through, just sour. Medium to heavy body, average carbonation.

Aromas of dark dried fruit, black cherry, plum, raisin, and cassis. Black with dark ruby highlights. Dry, tart, and with a hint of cocoa. Medium bodied, crisp, acidic, and finishes pretty clean.

From a 750 into my Michelob chalice. First time I’ve used this chalice and it won’t be the last. Bottle is the 2012 vintage so it’s about a year in the bottle. Pours a porterish brown. Couple inches, tops, of white frothy head and zero lacing. LOTS of fizz in this one. Light mouthfeel. Like a porter. Very dry too Nose is very tart and consists mainly of grapes and chalk. Taste is also overwhelmingly sour. Very mild depth of flavor. Good amount of red wine, chalk, green grapes, sweet tarts, lemon, lime and a bunch of other sour things thrown in. I did like this one. Very sour but easy to drink with a light mouthfeel. From my buzz I got going, seems to be bigger than the 5.7% on the bottle. Worth a try but I’m not buying again. Bruery stuff just aint worth the coin.
