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.

Dark amber pour, a smallish tan head produces an initially dense but wholly temporary lacing. Resinous nutty aroma. Flavor is built around a semi-sweet chocolate malt base, offsetting bitterness is more nutty than hoppy. A bit of dark fruit, and a bit lactic scuzziness going on. Medium body.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Straight up Brown, or a burnt caramel perhaps, thin spritzy off-white, spotty lacing.   Soft toasted malt nose, seems mildly sweet, minor cocoa and lactose.   Smooth malt base, pale sweetness, minor toasted malt feel, very low hop profile.   Simple and straight forward.   Clean on the exit.   Lingering malts with a minor cocoa flair.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Pretty solid Brown, not like a lot of ones out here that tend to be over hopped.   Enjoyable. &bnsp Thanks to the big man Styles for the bottle!

Nuffield (4130) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2010
I got a good dose of the sourness that some people describe--though there were some decent brown ale flavors in there, the overall complexion was dominated by the sour chocolate milk quality. Somewhat thin palate, as well. Bottle.

On tap. Poured a deep clear brown with a tan head. Aroma was full of malty notes (hay, bread, nuts and roasted notes). The same malt notes were strong in the flavor with a hint of raisins lying underneath.

SrSilliGose (3328) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 24, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2009 bottle. pours a clear copper with barely any head. low carbonation. notes of coffee, rubber, toast, medicine. tastes more like a bock than a brown ale, who knows. I can actually see how this would go well with a stew or roast, like the commercial description suggests. I didnt particularly care for this one though.

douglas88 (8925) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2009
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark amber with a small white head. A sweet nutty caramel malt aroma. The flavor is nice; sweet caramel, rich toasted malts, but some smoky ashy flavors as well. Rich and sweet. Enjoyable.

shrubber85 (11215) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 15, 2009
Bottle. Sour chocolate milk and ash aroma. Dark brown with minimal head. Nice chocolately malt flavor with light ash finish. Very nice beer.

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.

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 (6104) - 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.
