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.

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. Clear dark brown with a fat coat of light tan head. Promising aroma has fruity coffee with roasted malt and some brown sugar underneath. Medium bodied, medium carbonation - I’d like it a bit lower, the beer is not very silky for an oaty stout. Sweet with a finish that’s fairly bitter but neither dry nor noticeably astringent. The coffee is very nicely handled here and provides aromatic overtones but no burnt notes. It’s very prominent but not dominant. Good.

Pounder can from Smith’s. Hazy blackish pour with tan head. Roasty dark malt in the nose, some mocha notes, decent mouthfeel and complexity.

Black pour with a thin beige head and low on carbonation .... aroma of coffee beans, chocolate, roasted malts, light lactose and berries ... taste is of bitter coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, berries, has a spicy bite and some dark fruity character along with light lactose .... slick and oily but still on a thinner end .... very sessionable

Pint can in Pasco, WA. Was kind of disappointed with the mouthfeel. Decent bitterness. I saw later that this is an oatmeal stout so that might be the reason for the lightness on the tongue. By the color and mouthfeel I would have guessed this to be a brown ale. This isn’t a bad beer but I guess I prefer chewier coffee stouts with more residual sugars. Enough coffee in this beer to smell it in your pee!
