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 that’s 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.

October 25th, 2013 - This was the first time I had this brew, which has become something of a hallmark in my North Park neighborhood. It’s everywhere in cans, but I THINK back then, this was tap only. But it’s easy to tell on the first sip why it’s become so prevalent. The roast flavor on the nose is appetizing, tossing in malt, wood chips, and that curious mustiness of a Pacific Northwest temperate rain forest. The coffee and coffee beans really shine in the flavor though, served on a rich, creamy palate, and delivering an unexpected dose of hazelnut smokiness and sweetness. I suspect Modern Times will be joining the San Diego market in the IPA frenzy, but it’s great to see they have a stout to match for those with palates inclined to darker beers.
