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.

harrisoni (17994) - 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.

joeneugs (6314) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 23, 2017
This one is made with coffee, coconut and cocoa. It pours a dark brown color with a thin, but creamy khaki colored nitro head. The aroma has coffee, cocoa and toast with maybe a light hint of coconut. Pleasant. The flavor is smooth and oily with a little bit more coconut than the aroma and nice subtle coffee, toast and cocoa. Very oily on the palate, and the coconut adds to this impression. Light sweetness and creamy mouth feel. Really enjoyable.

On draft at Tap 25. It pours a dark brown color with a creamy tan head. The aroma is very intense with coffee, hints of vanilla, dark chocolate and chocolate syrup. The mouthfeel is silky and creamy with some flavors of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. High carbonation for the style. Medium to high roasted malt in the finish with some earthy bitterness. An awesome coffee stout. No green pepper.

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.

Dark brown with reddish highlights. A light brown creamy head of foam. Semi sweet cocoa, medium roasted coffee, and subtle coconut in the aroma and flavor. The subtlety of coconut is what lets me down the most. Still a super smooth glass of velvety brew.

I wasnt quite sure if this was a can of cold brew coffee or beer, which is a good thing in my opinion. Black House has a delicious medium roast coffee aroma and flavor. mellow caramel and smooth oatmeal infuunces inbetween.

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.

Ibrew2or3 (8493) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2017
16oz can pours with a nice dark mahogany colored body that supports a full tan head of foam. The aroma offers up earthy chocolate flavored coffee as well as a touch of maltiness ball and dark roasted malts. The taste is smooth and deep with rich malt sweetened dark roasted coffee, some earthy coffee, burnt malts and chocolate. It maintains dark to near burnt maltiness right into the finish.

473ml can. Pours very dark brown with a thin but persistent tan head. Aroma: coffee beans, lots of it, roasted malts and some chocolate. Taste: predominantly roasted coffee beans, some chocolate giving it a slight sweetness, malt, mildly bitter coffee finish. Silky smooth mouthfeel, medium body. Lovely stuff.

Nitro at Base Camp Pizza at Heavenly Valley - pours black with a slight brown edge, tan head. A bit crisp at first before yielding to a lovely silkiness. Nutty, slight lactose nose with cocoa. Lots in this, vanilla bean, cocoa, leather, lactose, nuts, comes together nicely.
