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?

12 oz into Duvel Tulip Black with light brown head that isnt going anywhere. Aroma of mild hops, a bit of roast, slightly sweet, nothing special. Decent hoppy flavor, a bit too sweet, lacking roast. This beer seems somewhere in between a stout and a black IPA. Nothing I would buy again.

Large bottle. Pours black with a big, tan head. Nose is of citrus and cola. Taste is of citrus, but is overpowered by roast malt and chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium and resinous with some bitterness. Nice.

Ive had this both on tap and from the bottle. I actually prefer the bottle version of this one.

scooterbub (1048) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - DEC 1, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark reddish-black with a two inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, hops, pine, citrus, fruit and resin. Similar aroma. Has a full body with a slight bitter and dry finish. Easy to drink and enjoyable.

MrBeerFanatic (1046) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Pours a dark caramel color with thick creamy head with great retention. Big aromas of pine/citrus, slight pineapple, chocolate and coffee. Flavors of pine and chocolate upfront, slight earthy/herbal hops and a slight blend of caramel. More on the hop side but has a big malt backbone. Medium to high sweetness with a medium bitterness. On the sweet side all around but the hops poke their heads above it all to make a strong presence. One of the more enjoyable beers Ive had in a while.

weordie (1036) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2016
Pours black with a huge, tan, foamy head. Blackberries, roasted malt and pine on the aroma. A nice, roasted malt flavour, earthy, with a gentle bitterness to finish. Does not drink at 9.5% which could be dangerous.

bookman10 (1034) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Pours a dark brownish-black with a fairly thick head. Strong scent of pine in the aroma. Flavor is a nice combination of citrus and pine with some sweetness in the background and finish. This is a very good IPA.

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.

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Pours dark and black with a small off white head. Nose is wood and pine needles, some hay, light chocolate, coffee and berries. The taste is sweet at first but then accompanied but excellent bitterness. The mouthfeel is crisp and sticky, the body is light and the finish is long.
