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?

Tap pour at Town Hall Lanes. A questionable glass holding a wonderful, nearly perfect beer. A roasted malty ale leads but coupled by a compliment of hops. Just a great beer that showcases taste, mouthfeel, aftertaste, and perfection. Please go out and order this one!

EtTuCthulhu (1386) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - NOV 2, 2013
The color is a very nice, very clear, and very dark reddish brown with a large light tan head, and the aroma blends resin hops, floral hops, and a hint of caramel malts. The taste is mildly sweet, a touch bitter, and mildly umami, and the palate combines a slightly boozy finish, a medium body, oily texture, and a soft carbonation.

Bottle pour. Black IPA’s are my favorite and this one hold true to the style. It’s hard to believe this brew is 9.5%. It has a good roasted coffee taste with a solid hop aroma. Well-crafted.

Not sure if I have tasted anything like this. Completely unique. Not highly drinkable but just so unique.

brokephibroke (305) - Mead, Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Fantastic subalpine forest aroma. Sweet and coating with a bitter linger. Some dark chocolate which is nice, but would like more hops in the flavor profile.

wesyates (55) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Mmmmmm deep, rich, warm, hoppy. Pours black woth a creamy, long lasting head and strong but well meaning hops approach. Tjimk IPA mixed with milk stout.

Frahmo (316) - Idaho, USA - OCT 18, 2013
12 oz bottle, poured a nice black with a single finger of brown foam. Strong malty taste on a medium body. Bitter flavors are toned down. Alcohol content is barely noticable. One of my favorite beers!

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Draft at the brewery (GABF weekend) - This was definitely more of a hoppy porter than most Black IPAs I have had. Lots of coffee and roasted malts with the wallop of pine and citrus. Nice.
