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?

Great balance of hoppy and malty on the aroma and flavor. Pretty complex beer, a lot going on there. This would rock with a hot pizza with spicy fennel sausage and black olives!

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2016 EVERY ONE NOW THAT BLACK IPA’S ARE NOT REAL. THEY’RE CAN NOT BE BLACK BECAUSE IPA (INDIAN PALE ALE’S) STAND FOR PALE ALE AND NOW THEY’RE NOT BLACK SO I DONT NOW WHAT TO THINK FOR THIS BEER. SECOND OF ALL LET ME TELL YOU IF YOU PUT IPA ON YOU’RE LABEL THE. THE BEERS SHOULD BE REALLY HOPPY THINK OF PLINY (THE BEST BEER SEVEN TIMES STRAIT!!!) IT TASTE WHAT 200++ IBU AND SETS THE STANDARDS FOR HOPPY BEERS. THIS BLACK DEMON BLOD HAS NO HOP FLAVER OR SMELL. SOME PEOPLE NEED TO EDUCATE OF CONOSOUER HOP STYLES BEERS.

Incredible black ipa. I received this beer via a beer trade and they guy stated it was one of his staples. Very different from any other black ipa I ever had. Malty and well balanced. Very tasty.

Great brew, but could be hoppier as the bitterness leaves the palate. Very good brew.

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.

Bottle, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours basically black with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma has some light licorice and roast, but it basically focused around piney and citrus forward hoppiness.

The flavor is decently dry with a light roast character. The hoppiness is bracing on this one with lots of fruit and a little pine. It’s got a low-moderate level of bitterness & the booze level is pretty well controlled.

Double Black IPA is silly to me, but this is good.

Clear, mahogany brown. Light tan head. Light molasses, some floral aromas, light pine. Some alcohol on the nose. Fairly bitter, rounded out by a moderate sweetness. Fairly long, acidic finish. Medium body, some carbonation. Good.
