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.

burg326 (5253) - Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Poured deep black from the tap with aromas of bitter chocolate and burnt coffee. Flavors are bitter bakers chocolate and coffee with some roast and light earth. Thin on the palate for a stout but could drink a ton of this with out getting full.

MadRobin (2734) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - MAR 16, 2016
On tap at Bankers Hill in the San Diego airport, where it was served at an rather low temperature. Opaque, near black with with a tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee, roasted malt and cocoa. The aroma (particularly the roasted coffee) was quite intense, especially considering how cold the beer was at serving. Taste of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa and roasted malt. Medium/full body and medium/high carbonation with a satisfying mouthfeel. Lots of rich roasted coffee in a very well done oatmeal stout. Even while still too cold, it's delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at The Brewdog, Leicester. Black with cream head. There is a sharp, bittering, chocolate character to this. Full on the palate, creamy and a burnt note. Pretty good.

cal_gecko (4) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 7, 2016 does not count
A very, very, very tame stout - imagine taking Guinness and diluting it about 20% with water. While I normally prefer barrel aged stouts, I knew this one wasn’t barrel aged, so I wasn’t expecting it to be as full-bodied as some of the others I like.. but I wasn’t expecting it to be this ... ’wimpy’. It has a very weak nose to it, as well as very light malt flavors - this would be a good beer for someone who is just starting out with stouts and is intimidated by them - it’s like a Stout with training wheels. I still have 2 cans left, and will probably use them to make a sauce or glaze with ... they’re not really worth drinking.

Beersiveknown (4918) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 7, 2016
keg at brewdog brum
opaque dark chocolate-coffee brown, lots of cocoa, leafy vegetal coffee- almost ashen on taste, roasty tannic bitterness rather than hops with a caffeine buzz in finish. How a coffee beer should be done.

HuskerTan (1524) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAR 4, 2016
(Thanks, Shawn "MacBoost") Can. A- Brownie batter, fudge, chocolate, subtle coffee. A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, tan head. T- Chocolate, creamy, dry, slightly sweet, roasty. P- Full body, thin texture, average carbonation, O- What a tasty beer this was. Maybe hyped it up a bit more than I should have though. The coffee was actually pretty muted but the loads of chocolate made up for that. Felt like it was injected with nitro. Almost liked it as much as I expected to. Bold it up a bit and it’d be killer.
