COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Robust in character yet smooth in delivery, Cabin Fever is a roasty brown ale and a hearty, comforting companion for long, mind-bending winters. Its rye, roast and raisin notes play off a subtle caramel sweetness and culminate in a dry finish. Excellent with roasts, stews, caramelized onions and snowfall.

12 oz. bottle from Liquor Barn (Jefferson Commons); split four ways. Aroma: Chocolate over caramel malts with a touch of nuttiness and light fruitiness. Appearance: Dark ruby brown pour with a lightly sticky tan ring of head. Flavor: Chocolate vibe overall, but crescendos with some caramel midway through to add a nice richness; the finish ends up being mostly dry and lightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: A better than average brown ale from an able brewer. Not one I’d be quick to re-purchase, but I could see how this would be a welcome sight for fans of the style, especially in smaller markets.

koleminer20 (2115) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 27, 2015
On tap at Dan's. The pour is a medium ruby color with a white collar of head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is caramel malts and light. There isn't a whole lot happening. The flavor is a little more active. The malt is strong up front and almost inducing a bit of a bitter cocoa flavor. The mouth feel is light and thin, with no carbonation and a very quick fading aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
