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.

omhper (21761) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2015
Keg at Mikkeller, Stockholm. Black, small head. Intense coffee aroma. Dry with medium body and clean mouthfeel. Completely dominated by intense but shallow coffee character. Cool and elegant on the outsider, empty on the inside. Modern indeed. One nice flavour, not much else.

Bacterial (2365) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 17, 2015
Dark pour with an off white head. Massive coffee and roasted malt nose. Again in the taste. Nice bitter chocolate malt finish. On the very light side of a stout, rich but drinkable. Rivals Surly Coffee Bender as an exceptional breakfast beer.
