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.

Slightly cloudy, reddish brown color. Nose is more sweet malts and fruity caramel then roasted malts. Some hints of toasted grain and nuts. Light bodied with a slightly bitter, hoppy finish. More a winter red then a brown ale. Not bad, but nothing really interesting either.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Poured a hazelnut brown. On tap at New Holland. Aroma was nutty and sweet. Taste was hints of maple syrup, hazelnut, roasted grain, slight coffee and caramel sweetness. Not super thick, fairly straightforward. More flavor than most brown ales, but has room for improvement.

Tmoney99 (10965) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Bottle From Rivers Bend. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. Good toasted malty aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Moderate well balanced toasted malty flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2010 Dark mahogany wth decent, fizzy, tan head / Modest toasty chocolate and coffee nose / Medium body, chewy but watery, with good balance and weak finish / Flavors of roast malt, nuts, cocoa, and dark roast coffee / Serious body flaws.

I just did not like this beer. I thought it was a brown ale, but as an amber it’s even worse. Aroma was decent...all malt with a some roastiness. Pour was a dark brown with no head. Taste was a bit watery and thin. Mostly dark and roasted malts with just tinge of hops in the aftertaste. I really quesiton the classification of this as an amber.

12 oz bottle from cardinal liquors, Chicago. Clear brown body with medium off-white/beige head. Aroma is lots of nuts, roasted malt and some pine hops. Caramel flavor with nuttiness, roasted malt and some fruitiness. I have to agree with Holdenn that this was a brown ale, very awesome.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2007 12 oz bottle thanks to xnoxhatex for bringing this. Pours a clear brown with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, roasted malts, nutty, with earthy/piney hops around the edges. Body is a little thin. Caramel with roasted/chocolate notes in the flavor. Very nutty and slightly fruity with piney and floral hops. I thought this was a brown ale (in fact that’s what the bottle says), but pretty tasty what ever it is.

Bottle. Clear brown, with a thin slowly developing head. Roasted malt aroma, with chocolate and caramel being most prominent. Heavier than expected, with a chemical, flavor that reminds me of the aroma of bug spray. Yes, it is off somehow.
