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 thatís 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.

Pint (US) can from Brewdog shop. Barely existent tan head, a little lacing. Dark near black body. Nose is mocha coffee, roasted nuts. Flavour is creamy coffee, chocolate, nuts. Milk chocolate on the aftertaste. Medium carbonation, maybe a little too much, mouthfeel is a bit jagged. Really tasty stout.

Cybercat (4985) - Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Taps warm coffee brown with a thick and fine bubbled cinnamon-tan head. Aroma delivers strong quality coffee, roast malt, chocolate and molasses tones, just a little sweet. Flavor presents rich mocha, molasses, roast malt, and subtle toffee and smoky tones. Firm body has good fizz and a lip-smacking mocha finish. Head to the Black House!

Draught at BierCraft Wesbrook, Vancouver
Black color with creamy brownish head. The aroma is bready, a bit ashy, fire oven. Smooth mouthfeel, yet quite dry; harmonious combination of roasted malts with some boutique coffee; it has an evident sour touch from the dark malts. Smooth final. Thereís a lot going on here.
Very interesting.

mcberko (13435) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2016
On tap at BierCraft UBC, pours a deep dark brown / near-black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out coffee / espresso notes upfront, with a touch of roast. Flavour is along the same lines, with espresso, a touch of roast and low residual sweetness. Medium-bodied with a fairly complex flavour profile. Very nice.

ciocanelu (1069) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 16, 2016
Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has really sweet coffee, caramel, toffee and fudge. Taste starts with sweet, cold brewed coffee. Finish is more bitter and roasty with lingering coffee flavor. Body is light and effervescent. Itís a nice coffee stout but itís a bit too thin for my taste.

ClubGonzo (5359) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2016
Can from Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen. Pours a deep brown body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is chocolate, fresh coffee, licorice, leather, caramel and hints of muscovado sugar and brown bread. Taste is coffee, chocolate, cocoa, burnt sugar and hints of licorice, caramel, wood and grains. Full to medium body, medium carbonation. Tasty, easy-going stout with a good level of both complexity and balance.
