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.

SDalkoholic (2146) - Linda Vista, California, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Aluminum can from Sprout’s: Aroma is a rich and robust malt profile with a scent of black ground coffee and a background of cream. Poured a dark and opaque brown liquid topped with a fluffy foam cap head. The beer is sweet but with a bitter delivery of hops and malts that have been conditioned differently because of the aluminum. Not too shabby for 4 pack for 10 something and this was the 4th brew tasted from Modern Times and I feel this is a promising brewery.

This beer has become my go to drink. I havent found many that can come close to this dark and coffee stout smoothness. It pours very dark with a tan head. Toffee flavors and coffee sweetness that dont overpower the bark malt richness.

KyotoLefty (6449) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 1, 2014
Lovely pour, big tan head, fine, with pitch black beer. Big nose, umami, coffee, wood and chocolate. Pretty impressive and rich. flavor is thinner than imagined, lots of coffee, some acid from the beans, lighter body then expected, black chocolate. decent flavors, but a bit thin. Good overall, though.

Brenhophead (558) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 27, 2014
Pint Can. Pours pitch black with an off white head. A very nice creamy coffee aroma with a slight tinge of biscuit. Creamy mouth feel also, with a nice dash of coffee (not to much) that dominates the flavour. Nice beer.

Can thanks to a friend. Pitch black with a nice khaki head. Nose is bitter roasted malts, light chocolate, oat, and coffee. Smooth palate, chocolate, oats, roasted malts, very nice finish.

Pours black with a finger of tan head. Nose is coffee, coffee grounds, milky, little caramel. Taste is lots of fresh coffee, roast, very smooth, a bit milky. Tasty and easy to drink, relatively thin mouthfeel for the style makes it feel pretty light and refreshing. Simple, straightforward, and well done take. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wittales (635) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Appearance was clear jet black with creamy diminishing dark tannish tiny head, no lacing. Aromas are roasted coffee, chocolate, oats, molasses with no alcohol. Taste are sweet roasted coffee, cocoa, black patent malts with touch of creamy oats and brown sugar. Palate was creamy smooth CO2 with light-medium body, lasting roasty coffee mild bitter finish. A good example of a Oatmeal Stout.
