As the Colorado hop growers prove they can produce world class hops, we as a Colorado craft brewer want to showcase what our state can offer, not only with the ingredients used in crafting them. Mountain Standard Double Black IPA showcases the homegrown hops our brewers helped pick from farms along Colorado’s western slope. MST pours committingly dark with a light brown head and a slightly roasted hoppy nose. An ephemeral bitterness, the result of combining roasted malts with an assertive American hop profile, contributes to MST’s act of balance and harmony within nature or your glass. As the season’s darkness sets in why shouldn’t your beer become darker as well?

750 ml bottle - poured into a pint glass AROMA: Hoppy and malty. APPEARANCE: Pours dark brownish to black. A lot of head on this one that is more on the creamy side in color. TASTE: Piney hops and roasted malts. The hop taste dominates though. PALATE: Medium bodied, good amount of carbonation with a slightly bitter finish. OVERALL: A really good Black IPA, this is about the 5th one I’ve had in this style and is near the top IMO (the others Stone Sublimely, Sprecher Black IPA, Lakefront IBA, & Clown Shoes Hoppy Feet).

Nickls (2059) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Bottle shared by Travlr. Black-brown body. Grapefruit and citrus hops in the aroma with slight hints of chocolate and roast. Hops are more assertive in the flavor with a nice little burn, followed with chocolate and toast. Medium body, and pretty clean and drier. Nice.

Bottle. Pours with a deep brown body and a long lasting, creamy brown head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, bready malts (sugar cookie), pine and tropical fruit. Flavors are hoppy, fruity, dusty, pine. Columbus in there I think (fruity hop notes that are similar). Dry, lively bubbles.

Bottle thanks to Chris, drank from a perfect pint glass.... The beer pours a dark mahoany with a huge light tan head. Great retention, is a looker... Average aroma of a little roast, soapy hops, some pine hops, boring and hops are off... The taste is a little better but not much. Soap is still prominent, with citrus rhine, roast and hops. I don’t like the finish or feel on this. Not a big fan, I’d pass in the future.

750ml from the Wine and Cheese Place, the Lou. Another excellent, aggressively hopped entry in the MR series, long may it thrive. Big boiling black pour, with a silky body, rocky pale head, and tons of sticky lacing. Intense nose of sharp spice and fruity hops. The taste is definitely more fruity, with just a hint of roasts, making this assuredly an IPA. I found it overall to be really satisfying and complex, nearly at the level of Stone SSR.

Very nice beer. Nice looking black, with a sweet coffee-like aroma. Taste: dark roasted malt notes with a hop bite. More malt that hops. It ends with a coffee, dry hop aftertaste that is nice. I would drink this again.

bblack99 (527) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAR 18, 2011
750mL as a Christmas gift. Pours a translucent dark brown with ENORMOUS foamy tan head. Aroma is crushed by the head, but still quite faint after it finally collapses. Hoppy and a bit smoky, the charred body has a subtle chocolate note through chewy malt backbone. Smooth and disturbingly light for a 9.5% beer.

Milk chocolate and citrus hops nose. Taste its very sweet, moderately bitter, lots of citrus/grapefruit, lots of chocolate, molasses and a bit of roast.
