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.

Draught@brewpub (Astoria, OR), alc. 8.8%
Dark almost opaque black color, small beige head. Light aroma of licorice and licorice candy. Medium-bodied, oily mouthfeel. Cough syrup, licorice and alcohol in the reasonably sweet flavor. A bit strange strong stout.

dchmela (2766) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2011
Tap at the brewery. Thick black pour. Lots of dark fruit, roasted grain in the taste with hints of chocolate. Aroma has lots of chocolate, toffee and plum all popping through. Nice and complex brew.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Tap at 16 Tons. Pitch black, pure coffee bomb. No depth, no complexity, just some coffee. It really hit the spot that night though, I had two pints.

jercraigs (8290) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
2010-06-28. Black body with a nice brown head and great lace. 4+ Flavour is rich and malty, modest bitterness with enough hops to be interesting. 7+ Aroma is similar, sweet rich malt, light alcohol and bare hint of roast. 7+ Smooth average to medium bodied palate is pleasantly creamy but not quite as thick as I would like. Rather good. On tap at Fort George, Astoria

[3023-20100628] Tap. Toasted plastic grains and light roast aroma. Dark black brown body with a medium-lasting creamy brown head. Roasted bready grains flavour has a long sweet toasted aftertaste. Medium-full body. Nice enough, could even be drier.

boFNjackson (4185) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2010
UPDATED: APR 5, 2012 Tap @ Their Brewpub... Poured black with a khaki head. Good roast, a hint of hops, coffee, mocha-cocoa meshing with roasted malts and barley notes. Mild fruitiness too to offer a good balance.

Dogbrick (9109) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Sample at the brewpub, part of Stout Month. Pours nearly black with a medium beige head that recedes steadily. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of berries and coffee, plus some malt. Rich, smooth body with flavors of roasted malt, coffee and hops. The finish is roasty with a mild coffee and cocoa aftertaste. Above average overall.
