COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An immense, bold, black as night, american stout beauty; Cavatica is no dry Irish anything. Made in the tradition of terminator, except stronger, one sip and you will surely take notice of what you’re drinking. The name honors this brewer’s affinity with arachnia. Be forewarned, this beer will stain your clothes.

Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2008
Draft. At my visit I was told it was at 8.8% ABV. A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The arom is sweet matly with notes of roasted malt. The flavor is very sweet with notes of chocolate and roasted malt as well as lighter notes of coffee, leading to a dry, sweet, and slightly roasted soy sauce finish.

Draft at the brewpub. Toasted malt aroma. Blackish color with a tannish head. The body is medium; the carbonation is mild. The flavor is toasted malt with a tart character. Some coffee. Finishes not quite dry. Seems a bit different from the common stout herd. There is a touch of chocolate. Alcolhol was not bothersome.

Black, still. Coffee, anice in the nose. Thinner body, somewhat grapey with slight hints of coffee.Alcoholis and vinous at the finish. A bit off.

SamuraiArtist (292) - portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 11, 2007
From a growler. Pours very dark black with a 1 finger brown head. Aroma of coffee and malt and some hops. Flavor has light maltyness with plenty of roastyness to go around. Some sweetness but not a ton and has some definite bitterness. After awhile bitterness starts to build up on the tongue, this is definitely well hopped. The bitter roast and hops begins to get cloying on the tongue and build up or this would get a much higher score from me.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Deep dark brown with small head. Nose of booze and grainy chocolate. Hot and sweet with a little hint of fruits. Maybe apples but less acidic. Nice beer to drink on a cold wet day in the Pacific Northwest.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2007
Very dark brown. Aroma shows an overtoasted harsh graininess. Big wonky alcohol and fruitiness on this one...a little paint thinner and pear for fun. Sweetish overall and a slightly fudgey finish.
