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.

JaBier (6820) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2008
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.

skoll (420) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - DEC 20, 2008
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.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 19, 2008
Deep brown, thick creamy light tan head. Aromas of toasted milk chocolate and caramel cola nut warm to hints of butterscotch and dark bread. Upfront soft nutty chocolate and caramel flavors gain a touch of hops in the finish. Well balanced throughout. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, malty finish. Not usually a big fan of browns, but this seemed to hit the spot just right…

dark brown, ruby highlights, small quickly disappearing head. sweet malt aroma, perhaps some floral hops. sweet malt flavor, touch of chocolate, creamy caramel. full bodied, sweet finish. not a bad brown ale. not a favorite style of mine. as the beer warms, the chocolate becomes more dominant. bottle donated by rayboy01.

Dogbrick (11180) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Sample at Christmas Ales & A Christmas Story at Studio 35 on 12/7/08: This beer pours deep brown with a medium thin white head that diminishes quickly. Sticky spots of lacing. Aroma of nuts and molasses along with a malty undertone. Medium body with flavors of malt and dark fruit, as well as some brown sugar and caramel. The finish is sweet and malty with a short fruity aftertaste. Decent overall.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 7, 2008
Bottle...pour is a dark, opaque brown with a moderately sized cream head. Nose is caramel malts, toasted malts, cinnamon, nutmeg and some nutty notes. Medium body...very smooth and silky, perfectly carbonated. Flavor is mainly nutty malts, spice, some caramel and chocolate notes and a bit of a subtle hop finish. Great brew, very sessionable.
