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.

2010 Bottle - Thanks BuckeyeBoy! - Pours a dk cola brow with a small tan head...aroma is full metal, roasted grain but more metal and mineral...flavour is sour malt, this is pretty fucked, old grains and lemon, copper, infected? probably becuase this is not too drinkable...

Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso. Dark maroon, edge head. Aroma of milk chocolate and butterscotch. Taste of coca cola and root beer, slightly sweet and highly carbonated. Nice.

12oz bottle. brown under a small beige head. toasted malt and bitter nuts aroma. more of a bitter brown but not hoppy. the rye? plenty of unsweetened caramel and nuts. light bodied. robust flavor. a bit of warmth.

12 oz. bottle, $1.90 @ Binnys, May 09. Id say enough with the brown ales already, but now people will be looking for a replacement for Goose Island Hex Nut. This one pours very dark, almost like a porters, with a matching tan head. Smell is good and malty, a small amount of roastiness, and some ale fruit esters. Hint of mocha, too. Taste keeps some milk chocolate going up my nose, while my tongue finds sweet malts, a bit of tart cherry and strawberry. I said sweet, right, as in not dry? Much different than other brown ales Ive had lately. Nothing off to indicate the bottle has been sitting too long. A small note of hop complement, but otherwise keeps up a sweetness that suggests this could be boiled down to a nice sauce.

this is a descent brown altogether. aroma and flavor are toasted caramel malt with a touch of dry hops at the end. little bit light in the body for a brown and has some good lacing and head, nice brown color also. not bad.

Bottle. Pours a light brown with a very thin, tan head. Big bubbles. No retention or lace. Aroma is weak- some sweet malt, chestnut. Taste is cloying sweet, lots of artificial cherries. Meh

Bassikpoet (93) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2010
Bottle at home. Pours a dark brown with a slight red tint and a half finger of off white head. Smells of nuts, malt, chocolate, and slight hints of flowers. The body is medium and the taste is sweet with a subtle bitterness lingering in the background. Finishes dry.

TheAlum (7112) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2010 16 oz draft at Binnys South Loop (Chicago, IL). Pours a dark brown with ruby notes and a very dark red copper bottom that lets deep late sunset come through. A small offwhite head that dies to a small film, laces ok. Aromas are a touch of cocoa, brown sugar, and a faint dark fruit, some light sweetness mixed with a faint coffee, rye, and a pretty nice feel, faint hop. Initial is a bit fuller, some chalky roast, cocoa, rye, and brown sugar, a decent bitterness, some dark fruit raisin notes, not as sweet as anticipated, with a sturdy body, cocoa growa, bitter largely, with some sweet malt undertones and some tobacco creeps into the picture. Good balance, dark fruit, tobacco, and good bitterness for the style. A bit heavy to drink at length, but tasty. A nice winter brown.
