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.

Can. Pours a jet black, dark as night with a creamy light tan microfoam. Smells like dark roast, dark dried fruits, cold coffee, and a malty biscuit-like character. Tastes rich and relatively sweet with a well-balanced bitterness. Quite a bit of body and full in the mouth with decent carbonation. The initial hit of roast and sweetness is followed up by a lingering bitterness brought on from hops and roasted malt. Alcohol has been kept in check without any off flavors or noticeable fusels.

Can. Pours dark brown/black with a medium sized creamy, but diminishing beige head. The aroma has roasted malt, dark chocolate, and some earthy hops. The flavor is dry dark chocolate with some bitterness, roasted malt and ash. Medium bodied at best. OK.

2 1/2 oz sample at the brewery yesterday. Opaque black under a beige head. Aroma is roasty with coffee notes. Taste is the same. Seemed dry to me (in the finish). Creamy mouthfeel. Good.

Pours black with three fingers head and good retention. Smell is roasty and a bit fruity. You can get some of the alcohol. Taste is roast and a bit of fruity. Very dry but fuller bodied. Pretty good.

5000 (6300) - 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.

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 (3502) - 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.
