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.

This is a very enjoyable brown ale. Not overwhelming on the palate in any way and smooth. Great looking and wonderful fall / winter taste.

Carbonation seems high, and it has almost a lager mouthfeel. The flavor is hoppy for a nut brown, with some chocolate malt, but not enough nut flavor. Not really what I was expecting.

12 oz bottle poured into an imperial pint. Pours a dark brown with a small tannish head that dissipates quickly. Smells of caramel, butterscotch, light generic hops. Tastes of caramel and rye and with a moderate bitterness with a nice balanced dry finish. Body is great for the style. Good winter beer. Worth drinking but nothing mind blowing. I would drink again.

jmohno (1262) - Iowa, USA - NOV 18, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 Dark brown, slight reddish orange hue, light head, little to no lace. Nutty aroma with musty earthiness/woodiness, slight fruit like cherry maybe,. Nutty cherry caramel like flavor, slickish oily some, peppery citrus pine complexity in the bitter. Does finish clean with a hint of citrus on the end. Hint of woody booze.

tectactoe (3118) - Michigan, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle: Deep brown, oaky color with a light head, appearing far whiter than you’d expect from a brown ale. Decent retention, little lacing. Aroma is very, very nutty, sort of woodsy, & a little grainy. Faint notes of toasty malts & even more mild cacao bean towards the back-end. Warming aromatics. Taste is nutty, earthy, grainy, with a slight backdrop of toasted malts & a mild, spicy hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue. Slick mouth feel, needs a touch more carbonation. A decent brown ale, albeit sort of bland.
