COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What could make our Cavatica Stout even better? Bourbon! We let our house stout sit in Four Roses Bourbon Barrels for several months. There in the dark, bourbon-enriched barrels, the beer soaked up as much bourbon quality as it could before we sent it off to the bright tank. With an up-front bourbon taste backed by our dark, malty stout, the Bourbon Barrel Cavatica is a deliciously potent brew that demands a taste.

On draught at Roscoe’s, aged in Maker’s barrels. Love this stout even more with the added kick of barrel aging.

slowrunner77 (9942) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Heavily roasted malt aroma and flavor with a pretty minimal impact from the Willet barrels. Very very smooth. Not quite the step up from the base I hoped for but still quite nice.

Sarlacc83 (1893) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bottle. 6.99 at CostCo. Deal! A: Pitch black with a foamy firm cappuccino head. Lacing. N: Raisin, oak, bourbon, caramel, licorice, cocoa underneath, coffee, anise, prune, and some dark cherry. More wood. Smoke and roast. T: Quite sweet, good bitterness, some bourbon sourness. M: Medium heavy body, soft carbonation, no alcohol. O: Solid IRS, but nothing much for me to write home about. There’s a strange disconnect between its complexity and how much I do(n’t) enjoy drinking it.

Bottle @ Steasy’s. Thanks for sharing! Brown pour with a small head. Buggy wood. Tart dark fruits. Tasted grain. Earthy. Well-rounded nose. Flavor falls a bit flat. Some chocolate. Hot, rich graininess. Light pepper. Slightly thin. Decent.
