2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Full review available at:
------- This brown ale has a dark color like that of a porter with a dark off-white head. The head retention was extremely poor.
-------- The aroma of Cabin Fever is roasty and slightly nutty. In the first few smells of this beer the aroma is yeasty and bready.
-------- The taste has a malty-sweetness with a roasted chocolate malt flavoring. There are flavors of coffee and mocha present as well. There is a little bitterness.
------& Cabin Fever is a medium-full bodied beer. This beer had a chalky mouthfeel that I did not find very pleasing.
------ I bought a six-pack but after the first one I really wanted to try something else but didn’t have anything handy.
Deep dark chestnut hue under a thin very sticky light beige head. Earthy roasty aroma with a little chestnut and dry bready malt. Smooth and nutty flavor that’s earthy and slightly acrid with a slightly cocoa’d finish. Plain and dark and earthy and toasty and medium bodied. Ihsan (10) - - DEC 29, 2017
Pours dark and head goes non existent very quickly. Subtle taste and aftertaste that reminds me of porters but lacked any memorable qualities.

On Tap clear deep chocolate brown. Thin fine light tan head. Standard chocolaty light roast malt aromas. Middle of the road light roast flavors. Pleasant but plain. KawaBomber (228) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2017
12oz. Bottle (marked 10/16/17): Pours dark brown w/ a small light brown head. A quick swirl livens things up a bit, but the head quickly falls away again leaving blotchy lacing behind.
Aroma holds a fair amount of chocolate, caramel, and a hint of dark fruit/spice. As the beer is warming some roasted malt is starting to pop in the aroma.
Flavor mimics the aroma & also has a heavy roasted component with some hop bitterness. A little thin, nicely carbonated, dry finish & leaves behind a sugary sticky feeling.
Not sure I'd pursue this one again, it's okay, but there are better browns out there.

12 oz. bottle. Bottled 09/18/17. Pours a thin, well retained, light beige head, with miniml lacing, over a clear dark brown (SRM 30) body.......nose is cocoa, mild chocolate, light toffee/caramel, all from the malts, minimal hop spice, balance to the malts........taste is very mildly sweet, moderate cocoa, slight toffee/caramel, vanilla tones, finishing with mild hop bitterness, balance to the roasted malts........mouth feel, medium slightly sticky body, no alcohol, high carbonation. This falls well into the broad category of Brown Ales, but the hop contribution is low for an American Brown. BJCP 8/2/10/4/6

Attractive & creamy! Pours dark brown w/ a head & great lacing. The aroma contains caramel & soft hazelnut. The flavor is nutty, slight caramel, & a bit of bitterness. It has a really nice feel on the palate & is overall a good brown! martythesmarty (407) - SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2017
