COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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?

I’ve had this both on tap and from the bottle. I actually prefer the bottle version of this one.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Pours dark and black with a small off white head. Nose is wood and pine needles, some hay, light chocolate, coffee and berries. The taste is sweet at first but then accompanied but excellent bitterness. The mouthfeel is crisp and sticky, the body is light and the finish is long.

Steasy66 (995) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2012
12 oz into Duvel Tulip Black with light brown head that isn’t going anywhere. Aroma of mild hops, a bit of roast, slightly sweet, nothing special. Decent hoppy flavor, a bit too sweet, lacking roast. This beer seems somewhere in between a stout and a black IPA. Nothing I would buy again.

Salmoniform (992) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Poured from bottle to Glass. Dark hue with creamy tan head. Aroma is roast, toffee, caramel, coffee, citrus. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweet with a nice bitterness following and slightly astringent finish. Overall this is a decent brew.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Black pour with a big, foamy, white head. There’s lots of floral and citrusy hops with a touch of pine. The roasted malts add a bit of chocolate and roast but without the usual chalkiness that I don’t like in most black IPA’s. The body is creamy, medium-full with soft carbonation.

UncleKorm (887) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle poured a clear dark brown hue w/ a huge thick long lasting tan head and excellent lacing. Big fresh hoppy aromas, pine, grapefruit rind, roast, malts, and chocolate. Initial flavor is a light sweet with a moderate bitter finish of long duration. Tastes are malty chocolates and roasted malt, pine hops, a hint of citrus, and a clean, bitter pine finish. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel average carbonation, and a warm finish.

dalekliz (882) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 22, 2012
On draft at the brewery. Pours a murky dark golden-brown with off-white lacing. Aroma of pine hops and dark malt. Taste starts with a hoppy bitter bite then gets kind of watery, with some pine and sugar. Lingering light bitter pine notes. Eh, there’s not much going on here.

Nikiel (878) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Pours a dark red/brown with light brown head. Smells very hoppy and roasty. Has an amazing combination of warm roasty flavors and complex hop aromas. The flavors combine well enough to balance out. There’s not much as far as coffee aromas go (which I like). Ends with a subtle yet distinct war roasty flavor.

scooterbub (870) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - DEC 1, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark reddish-black with a two inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, hops, pine, citrus, fruit and resin. Similar aroma. Has a full body with a slight bitter and dry finish. Easy to drink and enjoyable.
