Modern Times Mega Black House is big on coffee

Modern Times Mega Black House

Modern Times Mega Black House is the newest special release by the San Diego, California based brewery.

The base beer is the brewery’s year-round oatmeal coffee stout (Black House), amped up to an imperial level. Modern Times Mega Black House features a “preposterous” amount of coffee when compared to the year-round version, weighing in at 10% alcohol by volume.

This imperialized version of our celebrated Black House is loaded up with preposterous amounts of house-roasted coffee, which is a heavenly match for the huge, chewy malt profile underneath. This beer is best enjoyed in sips, with ample time to experience its beautiful, evolving complexity, and ample room to gesticulate wildly with pleasure.

Modern Times Mega Black House is available now in 22 ounce bottles in both taprooms and distribution.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Coffee)
Availability: 22oz Bottles
Release: Late April, 2016
