Modern Times Beer Black House Coffee Roasty Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Modern Times Beer Black House Coffee Roasty Stout. I picked this can up at The Wine Club in San Jose (here). They have a small craft beer section, but they have an incredible selection. If you're anywhere near The Wine Club go visit them and tell 'em Mark from NorCal Beer Blog sent you!
From the Modern Times Beer website: “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. Black House is also available on Nitro. So creamy.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours very dark brown with a tan head and spotty lacing.
Aroma: Roasted coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, sweet malts, oats and a touch of spice.
Taste: Roasted coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate, sweet malts, oats with some light flavors of caramel and brown sugar.
Overall: Balanced and highly drinkable, Modern Times Beer Black House Coffee Roasty Stout is tasty. This 5.8% ABV offering is worth checking out.
