COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Identifiable by the rubber rat on the tap handle. Black Plague Stout derives its name from the historical fact that at one time in Europe beer was about the only safe liquid to drink. Black Plague is Irish style dry stout brewed only in fall and winter and only in small batches to ensure the freshness so paramount to such an intensely roasted beer.

vadie (1257) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2014
Noir sombre avec une grande mousse marron. L’arôme du malt rôti, du chocolat, et de l’alcool. Le goût est d’abord du malt rôti un peu sucré avec un peu du chocolat. La finition est un peu amer, mais pas comme un stout impérial. Il y a un petit goût d’alcool.
