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.

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.

On tap at Ashley's. pours an almost black red. Subtle sour aroma. Pretty incredible. Hard to explain, more sour than stout but has that nice stout base. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap and dispensed to a small snifter at Warren’s Ale House in Wheaton, IL., displaying an opaque, black/brown hue, with a decent layer of tan head froth that reduced to a thin ring, and left a few strands of lacing. The nose was dark fruit, tartness, and vinous characteristics. The flavor was full blown sourness, dryness, and near acridity. No possibility to detect any roastiness in either phase, yet I kept on drinking. Sensed a hint of vanilla toward the finish. More or less a one hit wonder for me.

Bottle. Black pour with a medium but disappearing head, and a very interesting aroma of sour cherries and roasted malt. Flavor is surprisingly sour with hints of tart cherries and lemon with some roasted flavor notes almost completely hidden away. Finish is sour, and it lingers quite a while. Overall I think this is decent but not interesting, and I was looking for something interesting in this. Not one I need to try again.

Tap at Pony Bar 10th ave. Pours cola black with no head or lacing. Nose is raspberries and sour candy. Notes of sour berries. Taste was light swet and pretty big sour. Light body with lively carbonation with a nice acidic bite to the finish.

Dark black pour... Aroma is tart, notes of roasted malts... Flavor is an explosion of tart, dark berries, malts... Tastes a lot thinner then you would expect, acidity overpowers it... Nice, but might like the JP madrugada better ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted at bottle share in Boca Raton, FL. Thanks Derek! Small snifter. Poured a very dark, nearly black with thin light head that disappeared quickly. The aroma was interesting as it was a a stout with a funky yeast to make it a sour. Chocolate, cocoa, dark fruits and funk. The taste was similar with the tartness not being overwhelming but very prevalent. Full body, smooth mouth. A little carbonation. Weird but I loved it.

Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Poured from tap. Black with thin tan head that settles quickly. Nose nis a deep, sweet candied sour with a bit roasty malt. Even palate, medium bodied, with sweet fruit tartness but very smooth. Some malt on the back. Finish is a bit light and overall the beer is pretty acidic.
