Intro: A 375ml bottle, 2018 vintage, bottled on 4th January 2018. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A dark brown cola colour with a two finger dark tanned head that had decent retention and left some stringy lacing.
Aroma: Tart, blackcurrant, Ribena, light roast, cocoa, coffee and oak.
Taste: Pretty much what you would expect from the aroma, sour, tart, blackcurrant, Ribena, light roast, cocoa, chocolate and coffee.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I love blackcurrant and the great thing is that it is very prominent here. I think because of the blackcurrant, I actually enjoy this better than the original version. Great balance of sour, fruits and roast.

Appearance: Very lightly cloudy, still see through, golden blonde colour with a just under two finger white head that dissipated quickly to nothing and left behind no lacing.

Taste: Funky, barnyard, grape, white grape, apricots, lemon and hay.

Bruery Terreux Tart Of Darkness

Brewery: The Bruery (Bruery Terreux)
Country: USA
ABV: 6.6%
Style: American Wild Ale
Other Notes: 2016 vintage

Brewer Description: (from bottle) Sour Stout aged in oak barrels.

My rating: 4
My beeradvocate.com rating: 4.26
My ratebeer.com rating: 4.1

Intro: A 750ml bottle, 2016 vintage, bottled on 23rd March 2016. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A clear cola dark brown with a just over one finger tanned head that dissipated quickly and left only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Tart, plum, raisins, moderate roastiness and oak with hints of vanilla and coffee.
Taste: Tart and sour plums, oak and an interesting and nice roastiness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: They’re calling it a Sour Stout, but I think its more appropriately a Dark Sour, as although signs of a Stout are there, it’s the sourness that dominates while the roastiness compliments it. But whatever you want to call it, it is well balanced and the flavours just match each other really well.
