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.

Sampled in Lexington, Va. Very very dark and the taste of whiskey barreling. I dont reallly care for it overall. The aftertaste is a bit harsh.

Bottled. Poured translucent coppery-brown with just about zero head on it. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted nutty and caramel notes accentedc by greener grassy and herbal bitterness.. overall soft, pleasant, and well-balanced.. until it warmed up and some stale and sour notes emerged. The flavor had sweet caramel, chocolate, and nutty notes at the core, with an ugly stale herbal and dark spicy presence on the sides.. bitterness was low, and the finish was sticky and not too enjoyable. Lighter-bodied and tacky on the palate with low carbonation. I was hoping for more with this one.

Bottle- Palmer’s. Dark brown, no head. Aroma was fantastic- sweet licorice, molasses, even some prunes. But the taste was nothing like the aroma- started out with some chocolate right away, but then it completely thinned out / watered out and I was left with a sour, metallic finish. This one started good and finished bad. Disappointing from such a good brewery.

Full review available at: http://beer47.com/2009/03/new-holland-cabin-f review: ------- This brown ale has a dark color like that of a porter with a dark off-white head. The head retention was extremely poor. -------- The aroma of Cabin Fever is roasty and slightly nutty. In the first few smells of this beer the aroma is yeasty and bready. -------- The taste has a malty-sweetness with a roasted chocolate malt flavoring. There are flavors of coffee and mocha present as well. There is a little bitterness. ------& Cabin Fever is a medium-full bodied beer. This beer had a chalky mouthfeel that I did not find very pleasing. ------� I bought a six-pack but after the first one I really wanted to try something else but didn’t have anything handy.

Bottle pours black to brown with a short lived head. The aroma is malty and rye. The flavor is rye, with a dark fruit to sour tinge. The palate is medium bodied. Not sure what made me buy this. The rye is nice. Meh...

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.

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.
