    How many batches are there of Tart of Darkness? I know batch 2 was aged in old Black Tuesday barrels. I snagged a bottle today and was just wondering how to tell which batch it was from.

    The 2 batches have drastically different labels since 1st batch was a Provisions beer.

    Batch 1


    Batch 2

    I'm not sure...I actually opened this thread cause at first glance I thought it said "Tart of Darkness Bitches" .

    The poor in the second pic to me looks a lot more appropriate than the one in the first. My wife and I were going share a bottle of this new years. I open it and she took one sip and just didnt dig it. Way too sour for her.
    By the time I got through half of it all i could think is "god this motherfucker is sour!"
    Would have been awesome to share with about 5 people! I wont make the same mistake twice!

    Thanks for the pic. I got batch 2 based on the label. Any recommendation as to which batch is better?

    i love sours to death but does the price do it justice? around jersey they've been asking $25 for that bottle for a long time. i know quality>quantity but some amazing belgian sours aren't that pricey at all

    It's good, but I wouldn't pay $25 for a bottle.

    Would love to try the provision batch. I get the regular version down in FL for 20 a bottle.

    I don't think $20 for a 750mL of barrel aged sour ale is unreasonable. If you haven't tried it, you should. My biggest gripe about batch 2 is the sediment, be very careful pouring as it can be chunky.
