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.

Cask at GBBF 2011, Day 3. Pours rich brown with a bubbly, beige head. Fantastic. Rich mocha character. Thick chocolate in the flavor. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Mild warming finish. Slight boozy oak, mocha, dry roasted malts. Super.

Caskalefan (141) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Nice black body with off-white head, creamy, roasty, hoppy, coffee-ish, and a nice balance of chocolate with a nice dry (but not overly so) finish. Unpretentious and delicious.

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.

Strilo (63) - Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2013
A very smooth and strong imperial stout, the sweet and bold flavor mask any booziness from this tasty warming beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mikedR (925) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - SEP 29, 2013
A very big stout. Quite smoky, and quite roasty. Not a sweet one. Some coffee notes. There's an earthiness here that I can't put my finger on. It tastes "black," for lack of a better word. Quite good! B ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jercraigs (7335) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
2010-06-28. Black body with a nice brown head and great lace. 4+ Flavour is rich and malty, modest bitterness with enough hops to be interesting. 7+ Aroma is similar, sweet rich malt, light alcohol and bare hint of roast. 7+ Smooth average to medium bodied palate is pleasantly creamy but not quite as thick as I would like. Rather good. On tap at Fort George, Astoria
