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.

Can. Pours a thick black with a medium head. The flavors are heavy roasted malt with some chocolate and bitter coffee flavors. OK, but I prefer my stouts a bit stronger.

On tap at the Modern Times Tap Room in North Park. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Strong coffee aroma with a little chocolate in it as well. Taste is rich, slightly sweet and the coffee really stands out. Fuller body, creamy mouth feel, and softer carbonation. Overall an awesome coffee stout.

Can shared with Simz and Keith on masters sunday. Pours brownish black with small white head. Notes of lift coffee roast, malt, vanilla bean, and chocolate. Balanced well and easy going for a coffee beer. Liked the amount of hops too.

Super delicious stout. Pours a nearly opaque black with a thin beige head. The aroma is rich and appealing with heavy oatmeal and coffee notes, light milk chocolate and espresso beans. Rich and smooth with a nice even roasted malt that complements the coffee and malts. Smooth oatmeal malt with a creamy mouthfeel. Quite complex with a smooth yet robust profile that has mild bitterness. A great brew.
