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.

Fresh can. This thing smells incredible -- a bit of roasted malt and a lot of coffee. The flavor is more coffee, but well balanced in with a smooth, chocolate taste and medium-dry body. An excellent coffee stout.

Pours a finger and a half of light tan head on a black body. The aroma is roasted malt, burnt wood, coffee and dark chocolate. The taste has malty sweetness, coffee bitterness and licorice. The texture is crisp. Nice aroma and enjoyable.

kevinator (1730) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Faint aroma. Too watery for an oatmeal stout. Smooth but lightweight. Good flavors and aromas of coffee, slight sweetness, roasty malt.

Negra con espuma beige de mediana retención. Aroma a café y maltas tostadas. De cuerpo ligero. En boca entra torrefacta, con presencia del café. Con más cuerpo sería un cervezón!

On tap @ Modern Times North Park. I had the nitro version. Very dark brown, mahogany highlights, creamy beige head (typical nitro). Low aroma of roast. Roasty profile, moderate coffee (not aggressive at all), light cocoa, silky mouthfeel (nitro), moderately sweet. Nice

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2016 Pours a dark brown with small beige/tan head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of coffee, toasted cereals, roasted malt. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter and roasty. Cereals, think chicory (café céréales). Medium body, medium carbonation. A really nice and not too sweet sweet stout!
