COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after the canyon in which the dam is built, this rich, dark beer is made with four varieties of malt. Minnesota two-row brewers, English chocolate, black malt and roasted barley give a pleasant coffee-like character to the finish. This ruby-black brew is perfectly balanced with East Kent Goldings and Liberty hops.

Draft at the source 12/19/13. Hazy dark brown color, tan head, solid lacing. Aroma of light coffee. Taste is coffee and cocoa.

On tap at the Brew Pub at Boulder. Nice dark cloudy pour. Nice roasted malt and chocolate flavor. Thin on the body and flavors. I did get the free beer with the T-shirt I bought though.

Decent but unusual. Had at the brewpub. Reddish. Standard nose but light. Palate is lacking a bit of malt but is decent. Just not greater.

kathouse (1105) - Nevada, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Very disappointed by my favorite style beer. Pours a deep red with a tan top. Does not have the malt character normally associated with a stout. Lots of caramel rather than roasted. Good body but bitter finish from high hop content.

dwyerpg (4642) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 5, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2012 Looks a little pale watery. Smells fine. Flavor has quite a bit of hops up front. Not very heavy. Good but doesn’t seem real stouty. G Had again and it was a bit soured

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 17, 2009
Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells earthy. Tastes of roasted malt and earthy with a light mouthfeel. Tastes more like a brown ale.

decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 13, 2009
A beer that looks thin. A hint of toasted malt on the aroma. A tad of toasted malt on the flavor. More body than the appearance would indicate. Another sour off flavor. If this is a stout again " my ass is a jack hammer"

on tap-pours a tan head and black color. Aroma is musty, earthy. Taste is medium malt-slight chocolate, roasty, musty, earthy. The beer wasn’t as enjoyable as the rating would indicate.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a dark brownish-black color with a medium thin dark beige head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Roasty aroma with notes of malt and coffee. Medium, dry body with flavors of roasted coffee, malt and light hops. The finish is mildly bitter coffee and hops with a short finish. Average all around.
