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.

Pours mahogany with a fleeting beige head. Malty and nutty aromas with a hint of chocolate and toffee. The flavor is malt forward with low hop bitterness. Roasted grain, hazel nut, toffee, chocolate notes. Light body with medium carbonation and a thin mouthfeel.

Dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is light chocolate malt and a little bit of roasted nuts. Flavor is a bit sweet, light chocolate and nutty in the finish. Not bad.

Nice toasty brown ale. Nice undertones accompanying the upfront roasted malt of sight dark fruit sweetness, medium mouth feel, just enough carbonation, and just a touch of hops to end rounded out. Just a touch of bitter chocolate at the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown ale with dried fruit (raisin, date, fig) in the flavor. More interesting than your usual

jredmond (6938) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Bottle shared with Brendan and Andrew. Pours a deep brown body. Mouthfeel is soft roast, sweet malt, chocolate and spice. Pretty bland overall - would not revisit.

Smoky roast with a dry finish, almost like a brown bitter. Had from a growler. 6.5. Would get again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ContemplateBeer (1878) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 20, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Liquor Barn (Jefferson Commons); split four ways. Aroma: Chocolate over caramel malts with a touch of nuttiness and light fruitiness. Appearance: Dark ruby brown pour with a lightly sticky tan ring of head. Flavor: Chocolate vibe overall, but crescendos with some caramel midway through to add a nice richness; the finish ends up being mostly dry and lightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: A better than average brown ale from an able brewer. Not one I’d be quick to re-purchase, but I could see how this would be a welcome sight for fans of the style, especially in smaller markets.

Bottle, Ann Arbor, MI. Deep brown, bright hop aroma with underlying molasses and coffee. Somewhat sweet, chocolate flavour with some metallic and vegetables flavour. Nice, not overly sweet.
