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 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.

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 (18429) - 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 (6371) - 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.

Oakes (17274) - 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 wouldn’t have guessed Ethiopian...too earthy for that...but it’s not a bad coffee taste. Good, easy-going coffee stout.
