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?

courtesy of a fellow ratebeerian I just can’t remember the name... - pours a very dark brown beer with a long lasting beige foam; solidly hopy with notes of pine and grapefruit; hints of caramel too; full-bodied and with a fair carbonation; smooth and fairly bitter, long hoppy fruity finish

daknole (10320) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Awesome! Grapfruit peel, citrus notes, floral hops, roasted malt, light cocoa! Flavor is hoppy and roasty. Grapefuit peel up front, roasted malt, light coffee, good malt bill. Nice.

adnielsen (10138) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2010
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.

Dogbrick (9611) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2014
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 (9541) - 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.

arminjewell (8673) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Pour was dark brownish black with off white head, aroma brought notes of pine, grass, some toffee and caramel, hints of roast along with a sweetness from the citrusy notes. Taste is a mix of grapefruit, grass and pine bitter notes, some sweet toffee, caramel, roast and chocolate, finishes fairly bitter but smooth. Nicely done.

3fourths (8638) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2010
draft. sand colored fine bubbled head, near black body. nose is ipa-like citrus and pine tar, wet, dank and spicy, while the malt is heavy with toasted bread crumbs, light cream, light to medium chocolate, all coated in green zesty buzzing hop oil. medium chewiness, medium body, mostly smooth. enjoyable but seems to have a concrete/mineral yeast note late.

BVery (8064) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Bottlle. Extremely dark caramel red when held to light. Monster beige pillowy head. Mild aroma of citrus hop. Semi creamy mouthfeel. Very sweet taste of caramel, pine and citrus hop. Hard to describe but fantastic beer.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 23, 2011
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.
