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.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Pours a clear purple brown with nice layer of bubbly tan head. Aroma is very sweet molases, dark cherries, roasted nuts, and some doughiness. Flavor is pretty light start then a warming boozy bitterness followed by a bit of a licorice doughy fruit flavor. Weird dryer finish. Overall, an ok beer but not fabulous.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours a brune body with a tan head. Chocolate malts, caramel notes, a bit rustic nutty and sweet. Some burnt malt with a bitter lightly sweet finish. Decent ale.

nuplastikk (5840) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 12, 2009
12oz bottle. Dark amber brown color, looks filtered in its caramel translucence. Soft vanilla-edged brown sugar aroma. Somewhat Porter-like when served ice cold, but as it grows closer to room temp it becomes a really nice, mellow brown ale. Thick specialty malt residue coats your mouth after each sip. Fresh, non diacetyl caramel and brown sugar flavors. Middle of the road and subtle, but quite a good beer.

This brown ale has only decent flavors marred by an excess of sweetness. Pours deep brown, beige head. Nutty and malty aromas; pretty typical for the style, nothing special except for the fact that caramel malt seems to dominate. This works very much against the brew in the taste, which is sweet and heavy - not what I look for in a brown ale. Go to Bells or Brooklyn for a better one, in my opinion.

topherh (1925) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2009
Pours dark brown with ruby highlights and a beige head. Aroma is roast malt, caramel, chocolate, and a bit co coffee. Flavor is rich, sweet caramel malt upfront with a roasty, bitter chocolate finish.

Location: 12 oz bottle at Capital Ale House - Innsbrook, 11/29/09

Overall Impression: This was a decent winter warmer-style brown ale, but I just didnt think it worked quite right. I cant put my finger on exactly why, but maybe there is a bit too much going on here, so the brew was a bit convoluted? Maybe a bit too sweet? Not exactly sure, its just decent though.

BVery (9791) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 4, 2009
TAP: Very deep mahogany pour. Nose of molasses and raisin. Taste is faint raisin up front, sweet, then chocolate/coffee late. Great beer.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle. Poured a brown color with a little white head. Aroma was roasted malts, toast, and yeast. Flavor was weaker. Not a whole lot. Some malts coming through. There is better winter beers out there.

SpencerDB (223) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Poured into a standard pint glass with a small, fleeting caramel head. Aroma of deep, full malts. Taste is surprisingly complex. Definitely full bodied with flavors including heavy malts, caramel, slight coffee notes, and a nice smooth dry finish. Excellent beer. Everything i was hoping for. I will be going back to buy more tomorrow.
