The Latin root of Cavatica is cave, crevice, abyss or a dark place. Just like a stout should be.

my can said "rum" on the bottom in black ink, and i got a distinct spice and oak flavor in the beer, but im not sure they have canned the rum edition, it said nothing of the sort on the label, and some of it may be mind games, but this may be a review of the rum barrel version, could not confirm it, so it stays here under the main listing. beautiful stout, my first from fort george. crazy can with all kinds of spiders on it, yikes. the beer itself is dark brown, a little darker than root beer, but not to the hersheys syrup realm. nice frothing burlap colored head too. it smells quite sweet, maybe oatmeal in there, with a cool spice complex thats either from the yeast or from a rum barrel, and im a little surprised that i cant figure out which. the flavor is awesome, so much grain, but no bitterness at all to this roast. not sure how they pull that off, but sweetness abounds in this thing, all from the grain i assume. there is a hint of bittering hops in there, but its inconsequential really. rich feel, dark burnt sugar and candy notes on the thick liquid make it velvet going down, and only minimally boozy, just enough. i have not had much stout like this, and am surprised its not scored higher on here, its so decadent yet easy to drink, a dangerous combination for guys like me. i am infinitely curious about fort george now, and am eager to get my hands on some more of their stuff. this is just great.

A big thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of light chocolate, some coffee. Taste is coffee, bitterness, some chocolate, a bit of alcohol. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
