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 thats 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.

On tap at Modern Times, North Park. Black with a small tan head. Quite a lot of coffee both in the aroma and taste. Also some light roasted malt and dark chocolate. The body was medium and the finish on the dry side.

harrisoni (17687) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Can from The Bottle Shop Bermondsey and drunk at home. Black beer lasting tan head. roasty coffee and dark chocolate aroma. Very attractive for a coffee fan. Very smooth and eady drinking in the mouth. So often these datk beers come out papery but this is top notch. Coffee is well integrated. Strong and dominant coffee flavour. Some fruit and hop on the finish. Very good. Very impressed with this brewery.

Oakes (16469) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2017
Can. Dark brown. Not much head, surprisingly. Aroma has an earthy coffee roast, and some darker chocolate. Soft, slightly sweet, touch of roast. I wouldnt have guessed Ethiopian...too earthy for that...but its not a bad coffee taste. Good, easy-going coffee stout.

Biroholik (1094) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - JAN 19, 2017
SRM: 90
Final Gravity: 1.022
Kawa: 75% Ethiopian Hambela , 25% Sumatran Mandheling Modern House jest jednym z nielicznych browarw, ktry wypala swoją własną kawę na miejscu w browarze
Kolor: Czarny, brak przejrzystości.
Piana: Drobnoziarnista, ciemno beżowa. Nie ma tutaj jakiejś wielkiej puchowej gry. Jest 2-3 cm kremowej piany. Opada powoli, ale wąski krążek pozostaje do końca. Odrobina zabrudzeń na szkle.
Zapach: W aromacie aromatyczna, świeżo prażona kawa. Aromat całych jej ziaren. Pod spodem odrobina mleka, płatkw owsianych. Na drugim końcu nutki czekolady mlecznej. Odrobina paloności na koniec. Wyraźnie, intensywnie, pięknie.
Smak: Intensywnie palony, prażony z ogromną dominantą w postaci kawy. Prażone ziarna dobrej jakości kawy czuć niemal między zębami. Zgrabnie komponują się one z gorzką czekoladą, lekką tytoniowo-popiołową nutą i pralinkami czekoladowymi. Na samym spodzie kawowego ciasteczka plasują się akcenty kakao. Goryczka jest średnia, a nawet zmierza w kierunku niskiem, krtki kawowo-tytoniowy finisz. Doskonały balans. Czuje się jakbym przepijał slodko-gorzki deser czekoladowy wysokiej jakości kawą espresso. Rewelacyjny Coffee Stout!
Wysycenie: Niskie.
Podsumowanie:
Jeden z najlepszych Coffee Stoutw jakie piłem. Miałem okazję sprbować w San Francisco kilku piw tego browaru. Każde z nich stało na wysokim poziomie. Black Hole jest nieprawdopodobnie gładki, jedwabisty na języku. Ma pełne ciało, niesamowitą kremowość na podniebieniu. Wszystko to zasługa wysokiej klasy kawy, ktrą browar wypala na miejscu u siebie w San Diego. Doskonale wpasowuje się ona w styl, łączy ze sobą elementy palonych słodw, gorzkiej czekolady, pralinek czekoladowych, deseru i ciasta typu brownie oraz kakao.
