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.

750ml Bottle. The pour was a very dark brown with a ruby hue making it look almost dark purple, and had an average (1-2 finger) light tan fizzy head that dissipated in seconds and left behind virtually no lacing. The aroma was rather tart right up front along with some chocolate malts and a musty sour Brett yeast with notes of dark chocolate, berries, a slight red wine odor and a bit of cask. The taste was very tart from the get go with a slightly sweet roasty taste and a hint of chocolate that almost went unnoticed, and then became very sour and extremely fruity which lasted pretty much throughout with a mild woody taste at the very end. The flavor hung around for an average duration following the swallow, with a fruity roasty tartness fading away at a slow steady pace. Mouthfeel was medium in body and dry in texture with a mildly soft carbonation. Overall this is a brew that is not for everyone, but if you enjoy a good Sour Ale with a really dark side this one is for you. I found it to be exceptionally tasty and quite sour with a really smooth drinkability. I am definitely getting more of this before I no longer can....

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

Niewiele tutaj zostało ze stoutu, głwnie czarna barwa. Wyrazista kwasowość, sporo dębiny, tanin, bardzo intensywna i ciekawa czarna porzeczka.

Bottle at The Growler Spot. Almost black with a small cream colored head. Aroma of light roast and tons of tart cherry/plum. Quite tart tasting with a touch of sweetness. Slick and medium bodied and dry. Very solid.

explosivedog (498) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 2, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2016 Serve from bottle. Aroma is earthy, balsamic vinegar, lots of dried raisins and prunes and some biscuit. Flavour is big tart balsamic, fruity dried cherry and prune, a large smokey bourbon note and then a dry biscuit finish to clean up. Surprisingly fizzy body. Gorgeous.

Dark sour and just oh so complex. Cherry notes meld into slight vanilla and chocolate after tones. A sour first a stout after

Big nose ! Lightly roasted coffee beans, plums, brandy, vanilla bean. Taste is in the opposite direction. Dried plums, tart cherry, raisins, funky earth, apple cider vinegar. Different sour, in a very good way!

heman (736) - Tychy, POLAND - OCT 27, 2016
W aromacie kwaśna kawa i wyraźne nuty popiołowe. Wraz z ogrzewaniem pojawia się dyskretna wiśniowa nuta i zapach mokrego drewna. Smak to totalne zaskoczenie. Właściwie ciężko doszukać się tutaj cech typowych dla stout-a. Piwo jest mocno kwaśne, znowu pojawia się posmak wiśni i niuanse dzikie. Dopiero po ochłonięciu, gdzieś w tle możemy znaleźć posmaki kawy zbożowej.
