MOUNTAIN SUN - BEER - BEER LIST - DARK SIDE OF THE SUN

The following is a list of beers that make up the darker side of the Mountain Sun


CLEVELAND BROWN ALE
Is there a good name for Brown Ale? Our Brown is very complex, consisting of 12 different varieties of malt. We tend to brew it only a couple of times a year during the fall. Enjoy it while it lasts!
OG: 1.060    ABV: 5.7%

PEARL STREET PORTER
Not everyone wants coffee in his or her porter. So, we brewed one without it! This porter is a blend of heavily kilned malts, fairly aggressive hops, and the uniquely bitter nuance of molasses. In 2003, this porter was originally brewed to commemorate Mountain Sun's batch number 1535, (which happens to be the Pearl Street address of Mountain Sun). The universe must have aligned, because the beer was awarded Gold Medal for Robust Porter at the 2003 GABF. Pearl Street Porter won a Gold Medal at the 2003 Great American Beer Festival
OG: 1.065    ABV: 6.4%

SMOKESCREEN PORTER
This is an intense, American-Style Smoked Porter. Smokescreen hits the palate with flavors of chocolate and coffee, and finishes with an assertive smoke character. We utilize two varieties of smoked malt for an added complexity.
OG: 1.074    ABV: 7.2%

THUNDERHEAD STOUT
The Thunderhead is our standby for stout. It's good and dark, has a full body, plenty of alcohol, and hops too! You may enjoy the depth of flavor in its malt sweetness and roastiness, hop bitterness, and alcohol kick.
OG: 1.074    ABV: 7.3%

YONDER MOUNTAIN STOUT
Yonder Stout is an adaptation of the Thunderhead. You may notice the similarities in the grain bill. It was originally brewed to honor our friends in the Yonder Mountain String Band. We're sure that the beer has been pivotal in their success as JamGrass Gods. Look for it whenever Yonder's in town or during our February Stout Month.
OG: 1.075    ABV: 7.4%

DROPKICK STOUT
We just introduced Dropkick Stout to Mountain Sun drinkers in late 2009. A true American-Style Stout, Dropkick hits you head on with a strong dose of roasted barley, followed immediately by citrusy and resiny American hops. Unlike our Trickster, dropkick is not a hop bomb, but it does feature a healthy dose of hop bitterness and flavor. At 6.5% ABV, Dropkick is a sturdy but drinkable stout.
OG: 1.068    ABV: 6.5%

CHOCOLATE DIP STOUT
Remember Austin Powers when Dr. Evil was trying to drink his cappuccino? "…What? It's a Belgian Dip!" Our Chocolate Stout now has twice as much Belgian Chocolate as it originally did. You should see the 10-pound chocolate bars that we smash up for this beer! You can be assured that the brewers all have tummy aches when we're making this beer.
OG: 1.070    ABV: 6.9%

KOROVA CREAM STOUT
Here, we reveal a little more Hollywood influence with a Clockwork Orange reference. Buffs may recall that the "Korova" was the milk bar frequented by the droog gang. Also, "Korova" happens to be Russian for "cow". While Mountain Sun and ultraviolence are polar opposites, we figured "Korova" was creative and apt. This beer is definitely rich and creamy; lactose intolerants beware!
OG: 1.066    ABV: 4.7%

TRICKSTER STOUT
Hopheads need stout too!! We loaded this one with Simcoe hops for a pine and citrus character that is atypical of stout. If you close your eyes and inhale the pungent aroma, you'd swear you were smelling an IPA. How does it work for you?
OG: 1.065    ABV: 6.7%

NIHILIST RUSSIAN IMPERIAL STOUT
In typical Mountain Sun fashion, this beer offers a unique approach to a classic style. Brewed with a massive quantity of roasted malts, this beer is balanced with a hefty dose of Orange Blossom Honey. A generous portion of Chinook and Amarillo hops and a drier finish lend to a unique drinkability not often associated with Imperials. Complex notes of coffee, chocolate, orange and cherry fill the palette, while an ample addition of bittering hops ensure a smooth ride all the way to the last drop.
OG: 1.095    ABV: 10%

ADDICTION COFFEE IMPERIAL STOUT
Our newest imperial stout features a massive dose of some of the finest local coffee available. Utilizing a blend of several different roasts from the fine folks at Conscious Coffees in Boulder, we infused this beer with over 10 pounds of Coffee. Addiction Coffee Imperial Stout won a Silver Award at the 2010 World Beer Cup.
OG: 1.098    ABV: 10%

NORWEGIAN WHEAT STOUT
When we came up with the idea to brew a big, robust stout using 51% wheat, we thought we were the first! After doing a little research we realized that a small craft brewery in Norway beat us to the punch. This strong wheat stout utilizes both flaked and malted wheat. It hits the pallet with a rich creamy mouth feel that gives way to a crisp chocolaty finish. For those that prefer a sweeter stout without the use of milk sugar, the Norwegian Wheat Stout fits the bill.
OG: 1.082    ABV: 7.5%

OAT LORD OATMEAL STOUT
Using nearly 20 percent oats, this Oatmeal Stout is full-bodied with out being overly sweet. The Oat Lord has a distinct chocolate flavor with a mild to moderate roast character. Don't be deceived by the rich and creamy body on this beer. At 5% ABV you can feel free to have another!
OG: 1.082    ABV: 5.0%

DARK HARVEST PUMPKIN STOUT
We used over 100 pounds of fresh pie pumpkins and a blend of six different spices to create this unique Stout. The very subtle roast character allows the flavor of the pumpkins and spices to shine. With a distinct aroma of pumpkin pie, this full-bodied stout finishes with just enough roasted flavor to remind you that you're drinking stout.
OG: 1.069    ABV: 7.9%

MEGATRON IMPERIAL STOUT
This American-Style Imperial Stout has dominant flavors of chocolate and roast balanced by huge citrus and pine flavors contributed by American hop varieties. The California Ale yeast has a clean fermentation profile and accentuates the flavors of the malts and hops.
OG: 1.102    ABV: 10%

OATIMUS PRIME IMPERIAL OATMEAL STOUT
Our Imperial Oatmeal Stout is rich and full-bodied with plenty of alcoholic warmth. It is brewed with a combination of roasted grains and Golden Naked Oats which lend flavors of chocolate and oatmeal cookies baking in the oven.
OG: 1.102    ABV: 10%
