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.

Nitro at the brewery. Pours very dark brown with a thick, creamy beige head and lots of lacing. Tastes like very smooth dark coffee, sweet chocolate, and a hint of burnt toast and dry hops. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like dark chocolate, subtle burnt coffee, burnt toast, and nutty hops.

Coffee aroma smells amazing before 1st sip. Malt & chocolate are the dominant flavors. Creamy texture. My favorite oatmeal stout. Can't wait to try the rest of the Modern Times catalog.
