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.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Very black with a hint of deep ruby near the top. Thin khaki film that settles to a thick collar right away. Aroma is lots of wet oak, bloody plums and cherry skins, and apple cider vinegar. Fruity and tart with a damp oak underlayer, there isn’t much stout to the nose. Taste is more like an Oud Bruin than anything... Sour cherries, sweettarts, apple vinegar, ripe plum skins, and lots of wet, faintly musty oak. Again, not much stout... Some deep dark fruits on the very, very back end with more drying, tart oak. I’m okay with the lack of stout, though, because this makes for a very good Oud Bruin.

Z: nikly, ale da si? wyczuc jaka? brzoskwinie, morele, co? ciemnego. W smaku kwas wchodzi na poczatku i lagodnieje z czasem. Raczej w jasne owoce. W posmaku pestkowe, sciagajace.
