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.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2009 Pours a deep dark brown with a hint of red in it. White head that fades rather fast. Comes across with a roastiness and even a burntness. There are some caramel notes and other hints of sweetness throughout this beer. I will have to say that it is very average, a little too sweet for a typical brown ale.

12 oz. Opaque with a small, fleeting head. Aroma is smores: chocolate, graham cracker and marshmallow. Flavor is the same with a little more roasty nut bittering on the end. Medium body is watery and lightly carbonated.

Bottle. Earthy caramel aroma. Deep brown body, tan head. Flavor has caramel, nuttiness, a dash of fruit. Very pleasant finish. By far the best of the 4 browns I sampled together today.

Pours a dark brown with a head of light tan and tan bubbles, has a gentle effervescence, aroma of toasted malt, chocolate and lots of brown sugar, Alaga syrup and dark or burnt caramel sweetness on the nose, sweet aroma is bit much, flavor of sweet roasted malt, caramel and chocolate, has a syrupy sweetness, there is some hop bitterness but it could use a bit more to balance, I thought this was to much on the sweet side. I found this hard to quaff with all of the sweetness, it would be better to sip this ale, has a lot sweetness on the nose and palate, I would not want to drink more then one bottle per evening, I prefer Brown ales that are less sweet.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2009 Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Dark but clear brown pour with thin light tan head. Nice to see a full-flavored but lower ABV winter brew with not too much spice. Mostly just a sweet brown ale, but with the slight kick of rye malt added to the expected chocolate roasted barley notes. Caramel and plums/raisins. Also some hop presence among the malt madness. Definitely too sweet for my usual consumption, but good if the mood hits you.

On tap at Gallos Tap Room. Pours dark brown with a medium tan head. Hoppier aroma than expected with a good amount of malt as well. Caramel, toffee and coffee notes present also. Robust coffee flavor with some chocolate and caramel. Perfect hop and malt balance. I am not a huge fan of brown ales, but this mutha almost drinks like a porter. Delicious.

Pous a dark brown with ruby highlights and wispy fisheye white off-white head. Nose of sweet dark toasted nuts and maltBrown sugar and molassis and very nutty but not in a vegetal way. Hint of anise and coffee on the finish. Great brown ale

12 oz Bottle. Very deep brown pour with 1-finger Tan head. Aroma is nuts, roastey grainy malt, brown sugar, light coffee. Tastes brown sugary, not too sweet flavor, prominent nuts, and a fairly rich palate. Brown ale but I have had lighter stouts than this one. All and all A good beer.
