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.

omhper (19194) - 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.

argo0 (11329) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 11, 2009
12oz bottle. Small tan head atop clear dark brown body. Aroma is moderately sweet, chocolate, nut, coffee/roast, some toffee/caramel, cherry. Taste is moderately sweet, chocolate, coffee, nut, some caramel, roast, rye spiciness. Medium body, low carbonation. A lot of flavors in here, seems like it’s trying to do a bit too much. Also a bit too sweet.

brokensail (10607) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 30, 2011
A: The beer pours a dark brown color, almost mahogany with a rather small/thin layer of tan head. S: Smells overly roasty and acidic, slightly acrid, perhaps. Mild toffee and malt sweetness, and a little bit of a nuttiness. A little bit of bad/stale coffee aroma in there as well. Poor all around. T: Slightly better as I take a sip. Some sweet toffee and caramel underneath with some toasted bread. However, there is a noticeable acidity which intensifies as the beer warms up. Acrid roastiness is still present. M: Medium in body with a nice medium and smooth carbonation--the one redeeming factor for this beer. O: Overall, this was a pretty bad beer. Far too acidic and no real brown ale flavors to it.

Tmoney99 (10412) - 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.

daknole (8864) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 17, 2009
Bottle. Man this was pretty good. Aroma is nutty and roasted malt all the way. Flavor has a big initial dose of coffee and gives way to some roast malt, nuts, chocolate and a bit of dry bitterness. I liked this and its seems a tad underrated to me.
