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?

Scopey (11551) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2016
Bottle at Leighton’s thanks to Dirty D. It pours darkest brown - black with a small beige head. The aroma is soft, pine needles, caramel, banana bread, stewed orange, peach and apricot. The taste is bitter, rich roast, umami, liquorice, charred wood ,cocoa, spice, raw alcohol, treacle and peach. Medium body and moderate , foamy carbonation. Nice elements to it, but it is a bit chewy and alcoholic. Not bad overall.

On draught at Petrol Station. Dark brown color with a medium thick foamy tan head that diminishes gradually. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Roasted malt, hops and chocolate in the nose. Medium to full body with flavors of roast malt, piney hops and chocolate. The finish is roasty malt up front with a hoppy aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

crossovert (10760) - Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Beers like this help me turn the corner with this style. The earthy, bitter, danky hops work with the rasted malt.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 Tasted on tap at the brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado. Creamy head with a great dark, hoppy aroma. Very tasty dark body with a very floral, hoppy aroma. Despite the high ABV, you can’t taste it. Highly recommended.
