Pitch black coloured body with a dense, one centimetre tall light brown head and a tiny bit of brown coming through when held up to a light, but this one is like 95% opaque. Aroma of anise, licorice, fennel, roasted malt, alcohol and quite a bit of milk. Medium to Full-bodied; Deep roasty flavour with oatmeal, raisins, milk, anise, licorice and a bit of peanuts in the mix - strong as hell. Aftertaste shows a bit of a roasty vibe with a lot of anise flavours mixing with some lighter sugars. Overall, a strong and pungent stout, on the border of an imperial and normal stout, but the licorice and lack of pure sweetness is evident. Nice to try, and not my favourite stout, but still a good one to try! I sampled this sixteen ounce can purchased from Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington on 10-February-2013 for US$3.50 sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 11-May-2013.

I find great balance in this stout. Big, roasty, and smooth, Cavatica hits all the right notes. It’s slightly sweet up front and ends with a chewy bitter cocoa finish. Yet another outstanding Fort George Beer. TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - APR 2, 2013
Can of the rye Cavatica from JT - thanks mate! Pours a fairly viscid, deep brown-black with a short tan head leaving heavy lace - looks absolutely lovely. Nose is fairly boozy, sweet and oaky. Medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation and a slight oiliness. Plums, chocolate, toffee, raisins and lots of oak. There is also some dry, rye funkiness that is more noticeable towards the finish, which includes heaps more oak. This one is a bit much for me. 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.

500 ml can. Very cool design. Drank out of the can. Rich robust coffee flavor, metallic, dry, dark fruit, super sweet dark chocolates. Fairly big and smooth. Odd in some ways. Rasmus40 (21822) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2013

Can. Nice creamy head with excellent duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are roast malt, coffee, chocolate, caramel, licorice and hops. Nice and strong. ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Can from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours an opaque black/brown, moderate tan head. Aroma is slightly roasty, maybe a hint of graham crackers. Rich body, very velvety. Very sweet and chocolate-y in the finish, nice slight bitterness, likely from warming or roasted malts. For $3, I’m not sure how one could do better. Yum!
