What the brewers say

“An immense, bold, black, American stout; Cavatica is no dry Irish anything. As Fort George’s house stout, this has gained a reputation for being mighty and contagious among the locals.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “S’mores and caramelized date that got pushed into a pool of molten marshmallow by its ex-girlfriend, graham crackers. Big chocolate, moderate vanilla, moderate roast, touch of coffee, light apple, light toasted malt. Medium hops aroma, minty and spicy.”

Flavor: “Dark fruits really punch through this one like a Russian gang fight where one side is Fig Newtons and the other is a bunch of prunes. The flavors carry through pretty far and the semi-bitter finish is like 80 percent dark chocolate. Melted brown sugar, chocolate-covered coffee beans also got their name on the guest list.”

Overall: “Great for the espresso addict, this beer has some excellent roasty notes well balanced with a touch of sweetness. The flow starts out sweet with chocolate and gradually goes toward the more astringent roast and coffee.”
