COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black House is an oatmeal coffee stout bursting with coffee aroma and flavor. Modern Times is one of the only breweries in the world to roast our own coffee, which allows us to be exceptionally picky about which coffees we use and how we roast them. The result is an abundantly flavorful beer thatís incredibly complex and aromatic, with loads of roast character and a chocolate-covered espresso bean finish. But Black House packs all that flavor into a reasonable package: at only 5.8% ABV, it can comfortably be consumed by the pint.

Inky black stout is a thing I adore, I really do. This seems a good example being almost opaque and with a coarse coating of mocha coloured head. There is a scent of dusty ground coffee and bitter cocoa. However, it seems a little restrained and it seems this was as well in the flavour. It isnít a shouty devil screeching about how much of Ethiopia it has ground into it. It is mellow and elegant, silky and with gentle sweetness. It is beautifully balanced and even offers some rosehip and orange rind on the finish. Itís a lush experience and one worth repeating.

At a tasting, medium stable creamy bubbly head, dark brown color, with some reddish hues, aroma of coffee, grain, hay and some mocha, flavor of light roasted coffee beans with some greenish hints, light to medium mellow bitterness, long bitter coffee aftertaste with something green. Quite enjoyable.

Bottle split with the wife last night. Pours the part with a silkly tan head. Super milk chocolaty, vanilla, creamy mouth feel. Awesome.

Can. Deep black, not terribly thick. A full, dense head the color of dry beach sand falls away after a time. Big coffee aroma blends with milk chocolate, toast and a hint of sourdough. Sweet, rich mocha, with a touch of earthy hops in the back. The flavor leads with oily coffee beans, which give way to toasted sourdough. Mid-palate comes the milk chocolate, followed by an acrid roast finish. Medium-bodied and soft like a down comforter. Mild massaging bubbles. No noticeable alcohol; fairly clean and balanced finish. Like a chocolate covered espresso bean without the bitter bite. Perfectly balanced and smooth as a latte.

On tap at the Modern Times Tap Room in North Park. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Strong coffee aroma with a little chocolate in it as well. Taste is rich, slightly sweet and the coffee really stands out. Fuller body, creamy mouth feel, and softer carbonation. Overall an awesome coffee stout.

Carb on tap. Pours black into cervoise. Nice tan head. Recedes to a ring with nice lacing. Aroma is dark roast coffee bean with dark chocolate. Front is bready and slightly roasty oatmeal cereal malts with cocoa powder. Finishes bitter dark chocolate with coffee. Medium to heavy lightly carbonated mouthfeel.

Can shared with Simz and Keith on masters sunday. Pours brownish black with small white head. Notes of lift coffee roast, malt, vanilla bean, and chocolate. Balanced well and easy going for a coffee beer. Liked the amount of hops too.
