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 Colorados 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 MSTs act of balance and harmony within nature or your glass. As the seasons darkness sets in why shouldnt your beer become darker as well?

kbutler1 (1378) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a dark brown/black color with a massive tan head of at least 3 fingers that is very slow to recede. The head is a little annoying as I cant take a sip for quite a while. Head leaves lace as it settles. Hoppy aroma of slight citrus with a little hint of booze. Medium mouthfeel. The hops have a decent profile from start to finish. Im surprised how present the alcohol is in this. Some roast as well. Decent flavors.

Bottle. Pours black with thin lasting tan head. Great aroma of fresh citrus hops and resenous pine. Medium body with healthy pine and underlying burnt malts. Well balanced. Enjoyable brew

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle at Denis. Light reddish mahogany brown. Rich resinous, piney, slightly vegetal nose. Amazingly smooth for the ABV, juicy pine and dark chocolate with a soft hop linger. Lovely.

Dark red, bitter fruit aroma. Rich, fruity taste. Malty and tangy hop. Rich, apple-y aftertaste. Really good.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Bottle. Poured a dark brown almost black color. Head was a two finger tan. That left plenty of lacing on the side of the glass as it went. Aroma was pines, spruce and hops. Flavor was the best of the Ipa, hops hops and more hops with some chocolate and caramel. Oily and sticky mouthfeel. Bitter finish. Great all around beer. The more I drink the more I love.

sthlm (1289) - Duluth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 9, 2011
[Bottle] Pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is very nice--lots of hops bursting out of the glass, particularly grapefruit rind and tangerine. Some roasted malt peeks through at times as well. Taste is quite hoppy up front--more pine than in the aroma--then almost a woody spiciness, some alcohol, and roasted malt. Quite full mouthfeel, somewhat dry, long finish. Overall, a fairly nice beer with good aroma...the taste Im less crazy about. I guess I would prefer to try this as a "regular" IPA without the roasted malt, but it was interesting nonetheless.

UncleKorm (1282) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle poured a clear dark brown hue w/ a huge thick long lasting tan head and excellent lacing. Big fresh hoppy aromas, pine, grapefruit rind, roast, malts, and chocolate. Initial flavor is a light sweet with a moderate bitter finish of long duration. Tastes are malty chocolates and roasted malt, pine hops, a hint of citrus, and a clean, bitter pine finish. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel average carbonation, and a warm finish.

Medium on the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, chocolate with just a little touch of roasted malt, lots of pine hops, a hint of citrus, and a clean, bitter pine finish.
