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.

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 (8650) - 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.

Had this on tap at Fort George. Colour... ebony with caramel coloured edges and no head. Nose... some roasty malt and hops with a touch of coffee. Palate... smooth, with a nice balance between the hops and malt, some coffee and chocolate and a nicely roasty finish.

Ungstrup (29802) - 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.

bhensonb (11489) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 19, 2007
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.
