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.

Drake (11913) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2008
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Dark brown pour with medium head, moderate retention and lacing. Slightly roasty caramel aroma with some dark fruit and floral hop notes. Caramel, dark fruits, roasted malts and nuts in the taste. Medium bodied.

Strykzone (6745) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Dark brown with red highlights. A nice big tan head that hung around for a while finally fading to an oily ring. Tasted like iced coffee but on the light side. Alcohol seemed higher than 6% but was more in the flavor than the warming. A good brown but not ideal on a 97 degree July evening. Still, it was enjoyable.

From one of my favorite American brewers: The body is deep ruby at an angle, dark and viscuous at another, looking much deeper in color than a typical "brown" ale. The head is dwarfishly small and soft, leaving nothing more than a pale white ring as it resides. The aromas swarm around your glass with purpose; molasses, pepper, caramel, fruit cake, madeira wine, and ripe, fresh blackberries hint that this beer might be heavy and strong, but a first sip, any misconceptions are cleared up. The body is smooth, velvety and medium bodied on the palate with a great drinkable feeling. The dark fruits again present themselves in the taste, surrounded by muscular, chewy sweetness, dark rum, burnt malt, charred oak, and some obvious espresso flavors. Honestly quite straight-forward and over-the-top for the style. For a minute there I thought I was drinking a robust Mocha Porter. Overall, I’d say this beer strays pretty far from the brown ale style, but it is very aptly named. I couldn’t think of any beer I’d rather have during a cold winter bout of "cabin fever."

Svesse (7912) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2008
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Dark ruby red colour with frothy, pale brown head. Malty nose with chocolate, wild berries, dark fruit and hops. Malty, roasted taste with notes of chocolate, coffee and hints of smoke. Full malt character with modest bitterness. Nice chocolatey finish. Nice beer with leanings in the winter bock direction.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Bottled. Poured translucent coppery-brown with just about zero head on it. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted nutty and caramel notes accentedc by greener grassy and herbal bitterness.. overall soft, pleasant, and well-balanced.. until it warmed up and some stale and sour notes emerged. The flavor had sweet caramel, chocolate, and nutty notes at the core, with an ugly stale herbal and dark spicy presence on the sides.. bitterness was low, and the finish was sticky and not too enjoyable. Lighter-bodied and tacky on the palate with low carbonation. I was hoping for more with this one.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2008
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Pours out in a clear brown colour with a low white lace. Somewhat muddy aroma of chocolate and fudge with floral undertones. Medium-bodied and clean with notes of milky chocolate, fudge, nuts and spices. Low on hops. Chocolate, spices and biscuit in the malty finish.

omhper (23678) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2008
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Nut brown, small head. Evident chocolate aroma. Fairly sweet with medium body and somewhat mushy mouthfeel. Well roasted with notes of cocoa and molasses. Low bitterness. Warming, like hot chocolate, but a bit raw and syrupy.
