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.

Pours a dark brownish black with medium light head. Aroma is light roasted Coffee. Taste follows the aroma. Thin mouth feel. Not much body or complexity. Was a pretty penny aswel. And it was a 4 pack. I like there other beers but this one Iíll pass in the future.
