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.

Salmoniform (648) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Poured from can to glass. Dark hue with creamy tan head that lingered well. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, roast, toffee, caramel. Mouthfeel is great with a full body and creamy carbonation. Taste is sweet with a nice roasty astringentness following and a clean finish. Overall this is a fantastic brew.

liquidhedonism (65) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - SEP 2, 2014
16 oz can from New Seasons Market in Hillsboro, OR. Looks thick and syrupy. Initial nose is roasty and sweet. Creamy and velvety smooth mouthfeel, with gentle carbonation. Roasted grains give lots of depth and flavor, with little astringency. Aroma has hints of chocolate, leather, and hazelnuts. Very strong and malty, but not too boozy. Great subtle bitter finish that perfectly balances out the sweetness and lasts long into the aftertaste. An all-time favorite!
