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 youre drinking. The name honors this brewers affinity with arachnia. Be forewarned, this beer will stain your clothes.

Can, shared with the team at Barbarian Brewery in Lima. Dissipating gray-tan head. Rather robust dark pour. Lots of bitter chocolate and some coffee bean on nose. Quite fresh tasting, nice bittering and carb brightness. Some alc at end. Lots of nice bitter chocolate.

16 oz can received in a trade. Very dark body with a dark tan head. Plenty of roasted malt aroma reminiscent of espresso and mocha which is highlighted by hops notes of pine and citrus peeking out. Mouthfeel is pretty big. This struck me as a big American stout, not quite imperial stout territory, but its straddling that line so much so thats its a tough call. Roasty notes of espresso are highlighted by bitter hops but this is balanced by well-rounded chocolate flavors. The finish is on the dry end of the style, but certainly has some welcome sugars to complete the profile. Im really digging this one.

Tall can from Elizabeth Station. Canned on 2016-11-22. Pours an almost black with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, dark fruits. Taste is oily, roasted malt and hoppy bitterness. Same aftertaste. Quite dry. Good stuff, but I would prefer some sweetness in the taste in order to compensate high bitterness.

fiery_1 (887) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 21, 2017
500ml can @ Portland area hotel room beer. Pours black with a small tan head. Nose is well roasted. Flavour is a moderate roasted bitterness throughout, however some chocolate dances around the palate. A touch bitter for my interests, but good otherwise.
