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.

Walnut brown in color... Not much malt aroma... Distinctly nutty flavor... Quite delicious...

Pours a chestnut brown body with a tan head of foam which dissipated quickly. Aroma had more burnt chocolate notes than what I was prepared for, though it was not unpleasant, just unexpected. Smooth and slightly sweet, this ale has a syrupy quality that coats the taste buds with a predominately toasty palate, featuring strong notes of coffee and caramel. Overall, more in the stout category than brown ale, but I did like this beer overall.

pours a deep dark brown with tan head. The nose is distinct caramel malt with some nutty undertones. Comes across the palate with caramel and a bitter bite that lingers. Its defiantly not a traditional brown ale, but still good.

From a 12 oz bottle this brew pours a nice dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, coffee and raisin. Taste was lots of raisin and what seemed like licorice to me... the coffee and roasted malts lingered in the background. This is a pretty tasty brown ale - a little different than some of the other brown ales I normally drink - but not in a bad way. Very solid.

daknole (8851) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 17, 2009
Bottle. Man this was pretty good. Aroma is nutty and roasted malt all the way. Flavor has a big initial dose of coffee and gives way to some roast malt, nuts, chocolate and a bit of dry bitterness. I liked this and its seems a tad underrated to me.

brigg (499) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 15, 2009
(bottle) Dark brown body and a small light brown head. Very chocolaty aroma, burnt roast, acidic, and fruity. Sweet and roasted flavor, but some surprising sour notes.

patrick767 (3524) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2009
bottle - Pours medium brown with a one finger head. It has a mild, nutty caramel malt aroma. The flavor is of caramel malt with some off tasting sourness in the background that makes me think there’s a hint of infection. It looks like "screigh" below got some with a worse infection. At any rate, the sourness was only hinted at in my bottle, but the beer was light and lacking in flavor. It was drinkable, but not much more.

zappafan99 (463) - ASCENSION ISLAND - FEB 4, 2009
Taste 2/9 Bottle. Looks: Deep, clear brown with a thick foam that disappears quickly. Aroma: Medium and dark roasts, toast and chocolate. Taste: Smokey, watery and broken. Not a pleasing taste to me. Nothing complements the other. Doesn’t come across as a brown ale.

wmubronco1992 (601) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Bottle. Dark black color. Creamy off white head. Some lacing. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, and carmal. Has a strange sour taste. I generally like brown beers, but this definitely is not what I was expecting. Very intense and unusual. Curious to know how this tastes as a draft.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Opaque amber pour with a 1/2" brown head and minimum lacing. Roasted, nutty malt aroma with a hint of chocolate. Medium bodied and mildly sweet. Seems balanced enough and is a touch thin in the finish. Warm flavors of toast, nuts, and cocoa powder. Woody flavor with an abundance of crystal malt. Mildly assertive, a rather enjoyable brown ale.
