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.

Taste is maybe not enough "rustic" to get the image of winters sustain drink...

Sampled on tap at Kraftwerk during their New Holland event on 2/5/11. Pours a very dark brown color thats almost completely opaque except for slight mahogany edges and a half finger beige head that quickly fades without leaving much lacing. Sweet, slightly roasted aroma with hints of rye, caramel and toffee. Theres also an odd spicy character and subtle sweet dark fruit. Medium bodied and not very robust or roasty with sweet caramel malt and hints of rye and toffee. Sweeter than expected with dark fruit notes, notably raisin, plum and grape.

Aroma: There is a hint of roasted malt, but its extremely faint, and I almost have to stick my nose in the beer to smell it. Appearance: Dark brown/black with a thin tan head. Taste: Medium sweetness, light bitterness, very slight sourness. Palate: Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation, decent finish. Overall: Meh...its a drinkable beer, but nothing stands out as amazing or noticeable to the point that its distinguishable from any other beer.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Nice toasted malty flavor with a quick finish.

decent enough brown ale. pours dark ruby with tan head and gentle carbonation. The nose is light cocoa and grassiness. Bitter tangy chocolate, think hershy bar, dominates the taste, balanced with a slight bitter edge in the finish. The body is a bit thin, but otherwise it is a nice beer.

Translucent dark brown in color with a small bubbly head. Aroma has a lot of sweetness to it for a brown ale with hints of caramel and butterscotch. The taste is a bit odd, light bodied, and a tad oily (possibly from some sort of nuts?).

Had at belgian cafe with dan in the morning. Suprisingly delicious brown ale. Pour was a clear brown body with some head the laced well. Aroma was full of rye and roasted malts. Flavor was raisin, caramel and malts. Really well balanced. One of my favorite browns.

Multiple 12oz pours - Im actually quite pleased with this smooth brown ale. Has elements of my favorite india brown ale by dogfish head, but no nearly of that caliber. Satisfying notes of butterscotch, carmel, and that all important rye. Session approved.

Poured into a pint glass. 3.5 A: Clear dark brown color. One and a half fingers of creamy beige head with about average retention and a small ring of lacing. 3.5 S: Butterscotch, caramel, and nuts. Theres also hints of dish detergent, but that might be a problem on my end, so I wont hold it against them. The aroma isnt too bad, but isnt too good either. 3.0 T: Butterscotch is overly present in the taste. Its way too strong and covers up some of the nuttiness, toffee, and toasted notes. Low bitterness and maybe a touch of chocolate to round it off. 2.5 M: The mouthfeel isnt pleasant at all. It has a light to lighter medium body that is slippery and fatty. Carbonation is at a good level, but its a harsher breed of carbonation. 2.5 D: Ill pass on this if I ever see it again. Plenty of problems without a lot done right.

First let me say... I really like brown ales. This pours deep deep mahogany brown, with a small red-hued foamy head. The aroma is sweet malts and caramel. The taste has more fruity hops than I would expect. the roaty malts are strong and take control of the flavor shortly after the hop surprise. The finish is fairly sharp for a beer of this body. A very enjoyable nut brown.
