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.

75cl bottle, thanks Sean for hauling this from PA to Belgium. Brune foncée, opaque, col léger beige laissant un filament huileux transparent/doré au verre. Arôme présente un beau bouquet malté grillé, le tout présente bouquet de cola, entre fruité noir et aigreur sur un profile boisé/épicé. Palais donne de suite le ton, aigreur et brett partout qui en mettent plein la bouche. Cette aigreur s’accompagne qui reste omniprésente durant tout la dégustation s’accompagne de notes maltées grillées, caramel et chocolat le tout suivi de note de barrique. L’aigreur se retrouve dans ce profile fruité noir et de ce mûrissement en barrique de chêne. Le résultat est un profile de bouche très effervescence/aigre qui risque de mettre un palais non-initié à rude épreuve. Une approche intéressante qui allie une aigreur très prenante avec ce profile plus malté/stout tout en restant très léger.

Restrained aroma in a thin black pour. Tart taste is a little one dimensional to start but builds to a complex and subtle beer that is eminently enjoyable in the end. Another winner from the Bruery.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2017 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.
