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.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Can:   Black, large frothy brownish head, spotty lacing.   Roasty nose, very faint hops and cow pasture.   Roasted malts on the tongue, some black coffee like notes, moderate hoppiness.   As it warms it sweetens.   Moderate to full bodied.   Well balanced, nice roasted malt background with a decent amount of sweetness.   Little bit of black coffee too.   Nothing out of the ordinary, but well crafted.

Black as night with a tan head. The nose shows a heavy dose of chocolate. Full bodied with medium-low carbonation. Heavy roasted coffee bean mid palate. Long, rich finish.

broowater (10) - Washington, USA - APR 18, 2012
A stout that is what it is and doesn’t try to be anything other than delicious. 16 oz can. Light carbonation but very well balanced flavor.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2012
Chocolate brown- black with a ring of head. Dry, roasty nose, with some sweet roast barley licks. The body is very green in its roasty character. Tannic, with touches of chemical cleaner. Green cardamom pod astringency. Ok.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2012
Tin. Black pour with medium beige head. Fresh aroma with roast overtones. Light bodied for a stout with roast and unsweetened chocolate. A bit of espresso in the finish

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 4, 2012
(16oz can) Pours an opaque black body with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, herbs, caramel, and chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt, lactose, some coffee, and chocolate.

crackedmachine (469) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Pours opaque and nearly black with a thick brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, and coffee is complemented by crisp hops. As with the aroma, the flavor manages a nice balance of roasted malt and chocolate tones with a bracing, subtly hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Quite dry and drinkable for an 8.8% stout.

after4ever (6062) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 20, 2012
16-oz can. Pours black with a dense and creamy dark tan head that settles but doesn’t go away. Stringy, webby lace. Chocolatey, lightly roasty nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb, goes a bit chalky in spots. Chocolatey roasty mid palate. Nice beer but not a bold foray into new territory.

Tmoney99 (10415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Can shared by alexsdad06. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid roasted coffee and chocolate malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted dark bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

A stout man’s Stout. This beer is strong, heavy, hearty, thick, and rich. A true Stout, an honorable Stout.
