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.

Can from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours an opaque black/brown, moderate tan head. Aroma is slightly roasty, maybe a hint of graham crackers. Rich body, very velvety. Very sweet and chocolate-y in the finish, nice slight bitterness, likely from warming or roasted malts. For $3, I’m not sure how one could do better. Yum!

From a growlerPours a pitch black color with a thick tan head that leaves great lacing. Smells of chocolate, caramel, licorice and and roasted malt. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is thick with medium carbonation. This is a really good stout, with most your normal imperial stout flavors but they really do a good job with balance. This is the first beer I?ve tried from Fort George and definitely looking forward to trying their other stuff.

raphael (1166) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2013
sour smell, with chocolate, licorice, caramel, surprisingly light in the mouth. chocolate, licorice, the bitterness of grapefruit, a little smoke. I like that the bitter leads, with nicely balanced sweet notes, the roast way back. strong milk chocolate head over deep dark. smooth, alcoholic finsish,

Very black, like ink. Thin head. Thick and Chewy. Alcohol burn aftertaste. Hops dont cut through much. Nut sure how they got it this thick without oats. Thanks Aaron.

Pint can. Poured deep brown with a quick-forming, well-retained head. The aroma picked up burnt black patent and dark chocolate malts with fairly sharp, kind of medicinal accents.. alcohol amplified.. this came across rough. The flavor found toasty, fairly generic black malts and a hit of espresso at the core.. sharp metallic/medicinal notes throughout.. dry finish with burnt malts, alcohol warmth (including some raw stuff), and carryover sourness. Medium-bodied and sharp through the palate.. I wanted to like this, but it just wasn’t pleasant.

Black body with lasting tan head. Kelpie, earthy hop, dry black malt, dark chocolate aromas. Frothy light mouthfeel. Bitter dry chocolate, earthy hop flavors with a table sugar sweetness--not bad.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2012
16oz Can. The pour was a muddy pitch black with a large (2-3 finger) khaki colored rocky head that slowly receded, down to a thin film with a medium collar and produced good sticky streaky lacing. The aroma was of a roasted dark bread malt, pine hops and a leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, coffee and possessed a moderate alcohol odor. The taste was quite roasty and rather malty with a bold bitter chocolate presence early on, becoming quite a bit hoppier with a nice roasted coffee note and a bit of alcohol towards the finish. The flavor lingered for a very long time proceeding the swallow, with a bitter hoppy taste left behind to settle in on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was full in body with a dry, creamy texture and a mild carbonation. Overall this was a nice hoppy Stout that had a nice thick creaminess to it. This is definitely a brew that a hophead would truly enjoy, in fact it’s kind of like (but not) a thick Black IPA...
