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.

OOF this one is an odd one. Thin body and very vinegar sour with roasty flavors. Way out of balance

Pours a dark brown color with a very sour aroma. Super sour taste. So good. The sourness was very well done.

Bottle. Fruit, sourness, stringent dry mouth feel. Tough, but not falling off the edge. Raspberry vinegar. But the flavours are quite agressive, it’s hard to detect much of a beer underneath.

Poured a dark brown from the bottle with aromas of cherries, cocoa, oak, light funk, some light dark fruit and some brett. Flavors are the same a mix of all the aromas, not overly sour, decent beer overall.

750mL bottle pours a dark brown/black with a large tan head. Aroma of caramel, oak, cherries, and melloe balanced brett. Sour cherries, mellow yet sour brett, not overly tart, vinous barrel presence. An easy drinking dark sour, well enjoyed!!

Bottle as shown. Pours a dark amber with beige head leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is funk and sour fruit. Medium mouthfeel with a sour fruit and light maltiness with nice tart finish. A very good sour from the Bruery.

Bottle from Capone’s.. Best name for a beer possible.. Pour is the darkest purple ive ever seen.. almost black with a thick off white head and moderate lacing.. Aroma is sour.. with a heavy grape scent.. Taste is tart right off the bat.. grape, cherry, pluot.. with a delicious long tart finish..Mouthfeel is light.. makes me salivate..Easy to savor.. a really creative dark sour that I just love.. one of the most productive beer days i’ve ever had.
