Cavatica Stout

Brewery: Fort George | Astoria, OR

Style: American Stout

ABV: 8.8%

IBU: Not Listed

Profile: Mighty, bold, black as night, this house stout has gained a reputation for being contagious among the locals. This is no dry Irish anything, rather a strapping American Double Stout with a sweet undertow and addictive hint of bitterness. Watch for special editions aged in rum barrels and other variations. The name honors this brewer’s affinity with literary arachnids; the Latin root of Cavatica is cave, abyss, or dark place. Be forewarned, this beer will stain your clothes.

Pairings: Cavatica Stout pairs well with sharp aged cheddars, earthy nutty Swiss cheese, smoked or grilled fish and meats, barbecue, pot pie with wild mushrooms, potatoes, carrots, grilled Portobello, and chocolate or oatmeal coffee cake for dessert.
