16oz can (6/8/2015) into a tulip. Pours a clean chocolate brown/black w/ a 1-finger mocha head.

Aroma is bitter and roasty, chocolatey. Dry cocoa.

Taste follows nose. Dark bitter roast, chocolate, espresso. Sharp and clean.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, lingering bitter finish.

Overall a well-made, if not particularly remarkable, imperial stout.

Fort George Cavatica Stout, 8.8% abv

A: dark with a bit of off white head that completely vanishes after a while
S: malty, maybe I’m imagining a coffee aspect
T: caramelly sweet dark malt, vanilla, alcohol.
M: silky, creamy, with almost tannin like after feeling on the tongue
O: a very sugary sweet and highly alcoholic stout that is good for drinking slowly on this way too hot day.

A good but not great stout. Let it warm - it really improves with an increase in temperature.

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.
