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.

Aroma is sweetish - liqourice, chocolate, and vanilla. A brown-black pour with a vigorous, mostly lasting, khaki head with abuntent lacing. The taste is, overall, mildly sweet. Milk chocolate, liqourice, with hints of coco cola and citrus. While there is a nice moderately bitter finish, there is not much roasted flavor going on here. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, I enjoyed this stout, but it is not as robust and/or roasty as I would have expected.

on tap, pours black with a thin tan head. Nice stout nose, roast, oak, earth, alcohol. Solid roast, espresso, alcohol attack, a bit thin and watery on the finish. Pretty nice beer.

473ml can. Velvety black with foamy off-white head. Aroma of over-roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, vanilla...hint of smoked ham. Sweet. Thick, oily, dry and potent. Could do with some mellowing.

brokensail (16660) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Can @ Richard’s tasting. Black pour with a big tan head. Roasted malt, graham cracker, and soap. Metallic aroma, some pennies. Meh. Roasted malt flavor, metal, and pennies. Light soap, graham cracker, and ash.

GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 29, 2013
16oz can. Dark, clear brown pour with medium, coffee foam. Good retention. Acetaldehyde/green apple nose. Taste is dusty, bitter, dark chocolate. Solid, simply. Dry, clean palate. Aroma is unfortunate.

mikedR (1561) - 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

3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. I dig strong, carnned stouts. Black pour with a nice tan head that lasts. Somewhat light aroma, disappointing a bit, with mild chocolate, coffee, and roast. Good but disappointing flavor as well, light chocolate and roast, a hint of cream. If this had a little more kick and complexity, I’d be all over it.

BIKE LANE. BIKE LANE. What a tasty beer. This is the second time I’ve been id’ed and the id-er mentioned I had the first Maryland ID they’ve seen. I guess us Baltimore people just don’t get out. Not sure why this is a great city, even if the tattoo to human ratio is much greater than 1. People also seem to like much older cars here. My theory is that they don’t break down since the weather is nice. BIKE LANE.
