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?

On tap at Brewer's Republic. Pours black, with a medium, frothy, tan head. Caramel and milk chocolate, with some pine tar, and rye. Sweet and syrupy, with a nice, smooth bitterness. Medium to heavy body, with a syrupy, thick feeling. This is a delicious black IPA.

Can from Baggott St wines. Pours black with reddish hue with tan head. 8.1% version. Pine, earth, black berry, hints of leather. Flavour is charcoal earth, sweet blackberry jam with an ashen wood finish. Sweet dark fruit finish. Smooth and cream mouthfeel. A classy black ipa.

12floz can, BBD: 02.16.2018, $1.75 unit cost. The ABV indicated on the can is 8.1%, and "double" is not part of name. It's just "Mountain Standard Black IPA." Poured into a pint glass, where it appears a dark brown color with a large sugary hop invoking head.

Smells like green stems, mmm...green. Chewy, moderate bitterness, and latent sweetness are this beer's markings. It's like drinking liquid bark, leaves, and brown sugar. It's fair, but it doesn't elevate my opinion of the style

Very good black double IPA. Aroma is Hap's roast dark malt. Had a very long lasting frothy Light tan head and lots of sticky lace. Flavor is like nose, balanced and easy drinking. Great finish and smooth body.

Given to me to sample by a very good beer friend from his cellar. It came in a 12 oz. bottle with some nifty artwork on the label. The pour yields a stout-like dark, almost jet black, body along with a foamy beige top that leaves a good accounting of the sips I take. The nose is unexpected for an IPA, earthy, malty and some spice. A drink gives an interesting combination of malt and resin, biscuit and a vanilla-chocolate finish. A touch of bitterness lingers. Quite involved, very appealing. A great Black IPA, better than most Imperial IPAs. A great day indeed. Oh, and the bottle says 10.6% abv. Strong in many ways.
