Fort George "Cavatica Stout"
Fort George Brewery - Astoria, Oregon USA
Imperial Stout (ABV 8.8%)

[Suggested Glassware: Snifter]


Rating: 3.8/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a muddy pitch black with a large (2-3 finger) khaki colored rocky head that slowly receded, down to a thin film with a medium collar and produced good sticky streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a roasted dark bread malt, pine hops and a leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, coffee and possessed a moderate alcohol odor.

The taste was quite roasty and rather malty with a bold bitter chocolate presence early on, becoming quite a bit hoppier with a nice roasted coffee note and a bit of alcohol towards the finish. The flavor lingered for a very long time proceeding the swallow, with a bitter hoppy taste left behind to settle in on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was full in body with a dry, creamy texture and a mild carbonation.

Overall this was a nice hoppy Stout that had a nice thick creaminess to it. This is definitely a brew that a hophead would truly enjoy, in fact it's kind of like (but not) a thick Black IPA...
