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.

Sour. Not as over powering sour as the pure sours. Slightly better than funk metal. Less funk. Slightly better put together.

Opaque black beer, short lived tan head. Dry palate, light and a little crisp. Very tart beer - sour and vinegary. Lemon acid toward the dry finish.

Bottle. The pour is dark with no head. The aroma is straight sour. The taste has some carbonation, but way too sour. Next. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Super tart! A great sour to make you pucker. Went and searched out a few more bottles of this. I only wish that some of the deeper flavors of this base style of beer stood out more, but does not affect my enjoyment if this wonderful creation at all. Must try! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aniela (4216) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2013
Draught at the Blind Tiger NYC sept 2012. Dark brown beer with no head. Sourish, berry and rubber aroma. Similar flavour. Nice beer with taste of swedish beer (lingon, tranbr).

DuffMan (9999) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Dark brown with a short-lived head. Intensely sour aroma and flavour, very lactic, and quite acetic, eclipsing any dark malt character. Too unbalanced for my tastes.

tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2013
From notes - Sample pour of dark brown/amber with a small white head. Nose is soy, teriyaki, sour fruit notes, cherries, and malty sour bread. FLavor is sharp sour, dark fruit, bready barnyard funk and tart cherries and raspberries. Pretty good, actually. Lighter body and smooth.

CaraCurtis (117) - Nevada, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Dark pour. Light tan, foam head. Tartness, cheery aroma. Sour, tart, body is thin to medium, some bubbly both in appearance and palate. Sour start of palate and can feel it on the top of the roof towards the end. It is beautiful to see a sour stout.

750ml from Sams, Durham. These Bruery magillas arent cheap, nice as it is to see them floating around. Viscous black pour, minimal bubbles, looks potent. Nice nose, combined vinous and roasty, not so much like a typical Belgian stout as a pinot-aged foreign stout or something. Hefty body, quite oily in places but manages to have a nice kicking finish - a touch acetic, a touch dry. Flavors are fruitier than the nose would suggest, with hints of currant, balsamic, and red wine assuming more prominence than the roasted notes. Very nice beer.
