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.

Can. Pours a thick black with a medium head. The flavors are heavy roasted malt with some chocolate and bitter coffee flavors. OK, but I prefer my stouts a bit stronger.

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.

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 (8358) - 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.

LazyPyro (739) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2017
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.

theOptimator (381) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Aroma is sweet caramel coffee. Appearance is almost black with a burgundy tint, medium off white head. Taste is coffee sweet malt forward, mild chocolate roast. Palate is medium. Roasty coffee lingers. Overall a nice beer, but nothing extraordinary for the price.
