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?

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic Imperial Pint. Appearance: Very dark brownish-black with massive light brown head and nice lacing. Aroma: Pine, grapefruit, coffee, dark chocolate and a floral rose-like aroma. Taste: Great juxtaposition of pine & grapefruit accented hops and coffee & bittersweet chocolate roasted malts. Ends somewhat bitter, spicy and floral; just generally very well balanced. Palate: Smooth medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Very dry finish. Overall: Delicious - great melding of Porter and IPA, imperialized. Would love to have this again - I split the 750 and was jealous of the other 375.

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!

Tap. Black color with tan white head. Subtle pleasing aroma. Smooth at first then perfect balance of sweet malty and alcohol. Excellent.

Bottle pours very dark brown with one finger khaki head. Smell is a little piney with lemony citrus and some sweetness from the grains. The taste is smooth a fairly light, a bit different than the nose. The grain is stronger than the hops and has a moderately strong roast. The hop flavor is mostly in the finish with a bitterness that competes with the grains and a light pine and citrus that let’s it be smooth a malty but just enough bite to be an ipa. It is a clean beer with no off or extremely strong stand out flavors, just nice and mellow throughout. For the strength it does not show it. Another great brew from Odell.

Oh man, what an exceptional double black! I have a new favorite black and I’m expecting this to be the one to beat on this trendy season. I hope this gets into regular rotation beyond the trendy black season. Well done!!

Bottled. Pours pitch black with frothy white/tan head and lacing. Aroma is orange, lemon little bit of lime, not much roasted malt character but definitely a biscuit bready maltiness. Flavor is hop forward with a definite very prevalent roasted malt character. Really awesome balance. Little bit of chocolate and coffee as well. Some lemon peel and citrus present. Hop and a little bit of coffee bitterness. Awesome.

A black beer with a red tinge and a small beige head. The aroma is fruit and pine hops, very nice. The flavor starts with roasted malt flavor and ends with very good fruity and pine hops characteristics. Very enjoyable.
