From the recent (2012) batch.
Body appears pitch black but is actually a dark brown color upon further inspection. Tan head fizzes up from the depths, stays for a cocktail, then exits amicably. Soured yeast & oak barrels in the nose; pretty nice but not intense enough.
One sip leaves no doubt this is an American-style sour. Hardly any stout left from the base as the infectious yeast summons sourness atop the oaky barrel residue. Has more body than most sours. Reminds me of Mother Barrel, though not quite as good or well-refined. And not nearly as tart or acetic.
A respectable beer considering the amount of this they brewed this year. Tart of Darkness is hardly The Bruery's best work, but if everything they make is at least this good from here on out, that's a resounding win for the craft beer world.
