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.

BillKismet (3605) - 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 (2291) - 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

crackedmachine (474) - 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 (6925) - 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 (12415) - 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.

Dark black with a rich and creamy head. Good coffe notes followed by a load of chocolate. The marketing on the can is awesome. A truly great beer

PapaSkeetSkeet (1004) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 10, 2012
pours black like oil, thin tan head. Aroma is lots of juicy orange/floral notes from hops, lighter dry oat and burnt notes. Syrupy, medium-thick body, smooth. moderate, even toasted oats and burnt coffee with a heavy hand of hops and nice moderate-to-heavy clean bitterness. Yummy, decent warm, still not a heavy drinker, probably better cooled to fridge temp.

riversideAK (5830) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Roast and bitter chocolate nose as well as solid cascade happiness. Nice aroma. Pours dark brown almost black. Thin head. Roasty dry light underlying chocolate sweetness. Nice c hop presence throughout. Lingering roast and hop. Almost black ipa-ish. Good.
