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.

Bottle- Pours a dark brown with a thick off white head that last a while. To me its closer to a porter or maybe a very robust brown ale. Very flavorful nice dark roasts and malty. Good drink, if it is more like a Porter even though brown ales and porters overlap in ingredients.

ChrisFields (77) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 Pours deep brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is malty, with caramel, raisin, and rye. Flavors are nutty with toffee, sweet malts and liquid smoke. Very slight bitterness for a relatively dry finish. Very light carbonation with a medium body. Overall an interesting brown ale, but not one I will likely purchase again.

Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma is nutty and slightly smoky. The dark fruit notes are also apparent with subtle raisin, raspberry, and even plum notes. Flavor is nice roasted nuts with some slight tartness that envelops the palate. Crisp finish that leaves a bit of caramel malt flavor.

KennyGalanif (42) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Pours a dark cherry brown color, with one finger of head. The aroma is sweet, with dark fruits and raisins. Lots of roasted malts and barley. The taste starts off with more sweet dark fruit flavor and caramel. Then the middle of the mouth you get slot of roasted flavors. It ends with a pleasant but not overpowering hop bitterness. Overall, this is a decent brown ale that I have had before, and will have again!

12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottled on 9/24/2013. Pours very hazy deep reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toffee, chocolate, cocoa, toast, biscuit, nuttiness, floral, light roast, and toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/toasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, cocoa, chocolate, toast, biscuit, nuttiness, floral, light roast, and toasted earthiness. Slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, cocoa, chocolate, nuttiness, biscuit, toast, light roast, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/toasted malt flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice brown ale! All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
