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.

From can into snifter thanks 5000! Black with medium to small light brown head soapy residue left and some head around edges. Nose has a big hit of chocolate with cocoa, roasted malts. Very smooth body soft carbonation, medium dryness in the finish, some burnt sugar, slight bitterness. Finish becomes sweeter as the beer warms with a long finish of malted barley. Well rounded stout.

On tap at PreFunk. An extra dose of hops almost takes this into black IPA territory. Smooth and slick, slippery, oily. Small been he head, aroma is mostly roast grains and burnt toast. Taste kicks in with some hops bite, more roastiness.

Can from Bier Thirty. Pours very dark brown in color, nearly black. Topped with about a finger of creamy brown head. Nose is mild at first, I had to let this warm a bit before diving in, but it opens up to a heavy roast, espresso, smoke, and lightly sweet aroma. Strong taste, quite a bit of licorice, but not overly sweet. Heavy roast presence, even hints of burnt malt. Good smoky notes. Lingering bitters and espresso in the finish. Lots going on here, but seamless in transition. Very good stuff right here.
