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.

on tap, pours black with a thin tan head. Nice stout nose, roast, oak, earth, alcohol. Solid roast, espresso, alcohol attack, a bit thin and watery on the finish. Pretty nice beer.

473ml can. Velvety black with foamy off-white head. Aroma of over-roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, vanilla...hint of smoked ham. Sweet. Thick, oily, dry and potent. Could do with some mellowing.

Can @ Richard’s tasting. Black pour with a big tan head. Roasted malt, graham cracker, and soap. Metallic aroma, some pennies. Meh. Roasted malt flavor, metal, and pennies. Light soap, graham cracker, and ash.

GT2 (7896) - Carlsbad, California, USA - SEP 29, 2013
16oz can. Dark, clear brown pour with medium, coffee foam. Good retention. Acetaldehyde/green apple nose. Taste is dusty, bitter, dark chocolate. Solid, simply. Dry, clean palate. Aroma is unfortunate.

A very big stout. Quite smoky, and quite roasty. Not a sweet one. Some coffee notes. There's an earthiness here that I can't put my finger on. It tastes "black," for lack of a better word. Quite good! B ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. I dig strong, carnned stouts. Black pour with a nice tan head that lasts. Somewhat light aroma, disappointing a bit, with mild chocolate, coffee, and roast. Good but disappointing flavor as well, light chocolate and roast, a hint of cream. If this had a little more kick and complexity, I’d be all over it.

BIKE LANE. BIKE LANE. What a tasty beer. This is the second time I’ve been id’ed and the id-er mentioned I had the first Maryland ID they’ve seen. I guess us Baltimore people just don’t get out. Not sure why this is a great city, even if the tattoo to human ratio is much greater than 1. People also seem to like much older cars here. My theory is that they don’t break down since the weather is nice. BIKE LANE.

Theydon_Bois (7002) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Taster from tap at the Growler GuysGuys, Bend, 23/05/13. Pitch black with a good sized tan head. Nose is roast malt, dark chocolate, liqourice. Taste comprises roast malt, touch of booze, liqourice, sugars, bitter chocolate. Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, dry roast finish. Decent enough Impy.

Thick black color with creamy lacing. Mild cocoa aroma but not heavy on the nostrils. Creamy smooth palate without being too bitter on the finish.
