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.

Serving: from can--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: light malt. Appearance: large, rocky, light brown initial head with fair lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Dark-brown/black body. Taste: moderately sour, roasty, initial flavor and finish with hint of chocolate and wood. Short duration. Palate: medium-to-full body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: not for me.

16oz can. Rich roasted malt aroma with nice notes of dark chocolate and some coffee. Pours black as night with a thin light brown head with poor retention but decent lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt with a good dark chocolate sweetness as well as a good, chewy mouthfeel and full body. Finishes smooth with a tiny bit of coffee sneaking into the flavor at the very end. Excellent stout!

Can, 05/02/2015. Thick black pour, thick medium tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, medium roast and coffee, vanilla sweetness. Taste is chocolate, roast blending with hop bitterness to balance some of the sweetness, some astringency with espresso in the finish. Medium full body, fairly smooth. Not bad.

WABeerFiend (351) - - APR 24, 2015
Poured from a 16 oz can into a large chalice on 01.27.15. A: Cocoa, chalk, and milk chocolate. A: 3 finger tan head that stays. Midnight black body. T: Cocoa dominates. Milk chocolate, slight roastiness on the back end, and slight vanilla are subtle. P: Creamy smooth with bubbles on the back end. Thin mouthfeel. O: This is a very subtle, easy drinking stout. The balance and the mouthfeel are the shining parts.

Canned (8.8%) from Safeway. Pitch black in color upon pouring. Nose is fairly roasty with a bit of sweetness. Good roasty character up front. Leading into a bit of coffee flavors. Quite smooth and easy to drink. Mild hop character. Not the most flavorful impy around, but it is extremely easy to drink for its strength. A little warming as well. Maybe a touch of booze in the finish.
