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.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle:   Deep brown, thin beige head, sudsy, dies quickly, sparce lacing.   Tart nose, very woody.   Not getting much roastiness or stout like characteristics.   Seriously, this is a sour stout?   Really comes across as a standard type Sour Ale.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, very dry on the backside.   Had you given this to me blind, I would have no clue that its a sour stout.   As is its simply a tart/sour type of brew.   Not terribly fruity, nothing really stands out other than it being sour.   While I enjoy sour ales, this just seems too simple.   Good, but average overall.   Not stout enough in my opinion.

Are one of their beers that is more on the subtle side. Appearances opaque brown black with a very short-lived fizzy head and no lace. Aroma is tired roast a little bit of coffee and a tiny bit of fruit at the very end. Flavor is like nose fairly dry except for the fruit at the end which is just a suggestion of sweetness. Clean finish.

Although undoubtably a good beer I didnt feel that it lived up to the reputation that preceded it. The dark, roasts flavours of the stout base were almost completely overwhelmed by the lactic sourness. There was a long lasting flavour of sour plums which was pleasant enough. If you didnt know what you were drinking you could be forgiven for likening it to an oud brune.

750 ml bottle shared with my wife. Pours a dark cola brown color with a medium sized fizzy khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have light roasted malts, bigger tart dark fruits, plums, cherries, tart to sour finish, wood, mild vanilla, some sweetness, some acidity, good beer that Ive had before and now finally rated.

Sampel w Chmielarni na Marszałkowskiej. Bardzo ciekawe piwo, choć przefermentowalo tutaj wszystko co było kiedyś stoutem. Bardzo fajne piwo, kwaśne i owocowe.

Korcz (1773) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Niewiele tutaj zostało ze stoutu, głwnie czarna barwa. Wyrazista kwasowość, sporo dębiny, tanin, bardzo intensywna i ciekawa czarna porzeczka.
