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.

Pours a pitch black with creamy tan head. Coffee aroma is strong on the nose with subtle hints of toffee and cocoa as well. Very light body with the coffee flavor again making a presence. Very easy drinking stout with the toffee and bitter chocolate coming thru for a very flavorful brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

p1meatloaf (242) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Looks rich dark chocolate with a pretty nice thick head. Smells of a bit of coffee and richer dry chocolate. Tastes like how a Guinness should to be honest. Richer and more pleasing too.

Pour is a black with a small tan head. Aroma is an intense coffee. I can smell it pouring it from the can to the glass. Flavor is again a nice coffee with some cocoa nibs and a nice overall roast. Probably not as intense as the Founders coffee beers but this is pretty damn good.

sonnycheeba (4046) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Tap at brewery. Pours deep, dark brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is huge chocolate notes, light coffee, light plum notes, cocoa, and some other sweet dark fruit notes. Flavor is silky smooth with good chocolate notes, faint earthy bitterness, faint dark fruit notes, and some coffee (much less coffee than I expected given it’s a coffee stout). Medium body and carbonation.

Location: Can shared by jcos, 2/6/15

Aroma: Strong roasted coffee aroma, mild lactose, caramel, and a hint of brown sugar
Appearance: It pours a dark brown-black color with a small head and some light, spotty lacing
Flavor: Tastes similarly, with the coffee first, second, and third, the sweetness comes in on the finish
Palate: The body is medium, easy drinking, smooth feel, average carbonation, really quite nice overall
Overall Impression: This is a very well done coffee-forward stout. There’s enough sweetness to give it some balance, but the coffee is the star. Drinks great too. Rather well done.
