16oz can dated 02/12/15 served into tulip

A – Pours a deep dark brown, nearly black, but slight brown around the edges. Head is espresso like and lacing is nicely left in its wake.

S – Dark richly roasted chocolate malts, dry dark bakers chocolate, roasty bitter goodness.

T – Light chocolate, lots of darkly roasted chocolate malt, bitter char and cocoa. Nice drinker.

M – Medium bodied, very easy to drink, wish the finish was a bit longer.

O – A nice drinking stout, no overly sweet notes and not unnecessarily thick. Nice.

Black pour from draft with two fingers of mocha-colored head with staying power. Nice lacing as well. Solid but not overpowering aroma of coffee and chocolate with taste to match. Full bodied with perfect carbonation. A great drinking stout that does not come across as strong as it is.

16 oz can scared 9/26/2014. Served slightly chilled into an imperial pint glass.

Cavatica is a nearly black stout with thin tan colored head. It's head settles quickly and leaves little lacing beind.

Aroma is pleasantly roasty with a little milk chocolate and latte-like character.

Flavor is fairly neutral for a stout without all the intense hoppiness or booziness that many others display. Well rounded roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate all come together nicely.

Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied and appropriately carbonated for the style. Balanced and very drinkable given how strong it is.

Overall an excellent straight up stout.
