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.

Pours a pitch black with creamy tan head. Coffee aroma is strong on the nose with subtle hints of toffee and cocoa as well. Very light body with the coffee flavor again making a presence. Very easy drinking stout with the toffee and bitter chocolate coming thru for a very flavorful brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On Tap at PreFunk Boise murky deep dark brown with a short lived light tan head. Lots of coffee and chocolate in the aroma and flavor. Not a very big beer and a pretty low final gravity. Nice light roast flavors though. Tasty Beter than their IPAs I think

On tap at bier thirty. Pours out a dark brown topped with a tan head. Nose is nice light roast malts some chocolate sweetness and a fruit hop. Taste is more of the roast malts chocolate and a well balanced hop bill.

Can at home. Very dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Notes of roasted malts, smoke, ash, roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate. Pretty well-made classic stout, roasty, chocolatey, well-balanced. And very sessionable indeed.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2017 Will always be one of the best coffee stouts around. I mean, a brewery who roasts their own coffee, how can it get much better than that.

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
