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.

12 oz bottle from Monaghans. Poured a good looking super deep Ruby red/brown body with minimal light beige head. Aroma is surprisingly boozey for only a 6% beer. Lots of sugar, caramel, toffee, chocolate and wet bread. Solid palate with a fuller mouthfeel. Flavor of sugar, wet bread and slight alcoholic chocolate.

On draft at Buffalo Wild Wings. Pours a dark brown with reddish tinge, and thin tan ring around the glass. Aroma of sweet bready malt, roastiness, raisins, and a little smoke. Taste is mostly sweet, not much bitterness at all. More akin to a Belgian dubbel than a brown ale, but its tasty and easy to drink.

A very nice offering from New Holland. Pours very dark with a nice head. Malty aroma with a little hop character. Taste is VERY bold - malty as hell with a nice smokey finish, I did detect a little hop finish but they are mostly there for balance. Seemed higher than 6% as it hit pretty hard. Overall a very strong tasting and nice winter ale -perfect for a cold night.

Nsanders (1069) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Deep reddish brown color. Smokey, earthy aroma. Light bitterness and sweetness that compliment each other very nicely. Medium to full bodied. Went very well with chocolate walnut brownie. Label was the reason for buying this after a 17" snowfall.

Richer than most brown ales, carrying notes of raisin and dried plums. Sweet toffee on the finish.

pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Brown with a reddish tint, creamy long-lasting light brown head. Caramel malt, chocolate malt, some rye and raisin in the nose. Medium-bodied, softly carbonated. Caramel, chocolate, raisin in the flavor. Finishes clean and dry with some piney hops to balance. A flavorful brown ale. Above the ordinary. Would drink again.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2011 Bottle. Attractive, deep color, nice tan head fades to thin heady film. Strong smell of prunes, plums, raisins, red wine, date bread. Nice balance of bitter and sweet. A little thin on the tongue. Very drinkable - and a crowd pleaser, Ive found, if youre with people who want to drink better beer but arent yet into the more advanced stuff.

Pours a clear brown with very little head.. Aroma is a touch sweet with subtle spicing, creamy malty vanilla... Sweet caramel, vanilla, and dark fruits dominate the flavor with subtle spicing underneath, no real american hops... not very lively, almost a little boozy for 6%, has a wine like fruitiness, a slight bit of rye spice
