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.

Canned. Pours black with an average tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee notes. Sweet flavor that ends up being dry and a little bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft to average carbonation. A nice Stout. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

BelgianBeerGal (3950) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2016
Sacramento can. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head. Coffee and roasted malt in the aroma plus something akin to roasted nuts. Espresso in the flavor with a hint of vanilla and milk sugar. Nice enough.

kramer (6482) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2016
Pours a flat black body with a small fizzy brown head. The nose is rich and decadent roasted malt and coffee with some great oatmeal sweetness. The flavor is very dry and roasty up front, but gains a bit of sweetness on the lingering finish. Nice dark roast coffee throughout. Very solid stout. Medium bodied with minimal gentle carbonation. Lingering coffee and oatmeal finish. Very nice.

Sixteen ounce can from Pacific Grove, Ca Trader Joes for around $2.25. Dark brown pour. Aroma of medium roast coffee. Flavor is like a light imperial stout. I get espresso, a little bitter dark chocolate, and some acidic sourness. Light to medium body and carbonation.

SkillsFactory (641) - ITALY - NOV 28, 2016
Marrone molto scura, praticamente nera, schiuma nocciola non troppo persistente. Aroma di caff, liquirizia, orzo, zucchero raffinato, fave di cacao, note legnose, di nocciola fresca e lievi note di ossidazione. Al palato si passa dal caff al cioccolato per poi tornare, nel finale a caff zuccherato, fave di cacao, caramello ed un piacevole tepore etilico, il tutto accompagnato da una persistentissima coda di cioccolato fondente. Corpo medio-pieno, ben carbonata.

simontomlinson (152) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2016
Sandy coloured head soon left a cover on a very dark drown, still, opaque body. Malty coffee aroma. Minimal carbonation. Medium /Full mouthfeel, very smooth - almost like velvet flowing down the throat.... Dark sweet coffee, brown sugar, plum, fig, vanilla, cocoa & roasted malts. This is a super slick beer. A superb winter warmer.
