It's brown, it's named after a large North American ungulate, and its name suggests oral incontinence. Ah, we market product with our minds, but we drink beer with our mouths! Which is why this American brown ale is your new favorite session beer. Dense layers of malt, caramel, baking chocolate, and a hint of light-roast coffee give way to reveal a hop character you'll be surprised to find if you're used to drinking English brown ale. The finish is complex but balanced, and the gravity is not so high as to keep you from having another.

Good brew Review by Brew dog
Rating
This was my first brew and follower the instructions meticulously. I am very happy with the outcome. I couldn't wait longer than the 6 weeks required. Pounded all of it in 1 week with some help. Seemed closer to a Newcastle than Moose Drool. Could be because I didn't let it sit longer. Overall very pleased

Follow up review. Review by John

After the addition of a tablespoon and a half of cloves for some bite and spice, my brother in laws rather enjoyed it, being that they were surprised that it was made by myself and not sam adams, saranac. Turned out to be a great beer. (Posted on 10/27/14)
Good brown, but not my fave Review by guy
Rating
This is a good brown ale. Maybe I read too many reviews but my expectations were higher. I think it's good. It is very drinkable. It is getting better with time. Very average beer to me. Debated about giving it 3 stars. To me this is an average 3 1/2 star brown ale which I suppose is just fine. (Posted on 9/22/14)
Good Stuff Review by Shawn
Rating
This beer is really good beer. I used Wyeast Northwest Ale. 2 weeks primary, then 2 weeks secondary, then 3 weeks in the bottle before drinking. The only thing is it is sessionable just like the description says it is and I prefer more richly flavored beers as I typically have only one or two in a sitting. It's not bland by any means, but I like them bigger and stronger flavored. (Posted on 9/22/14)
Solid brown ale Review by Jay
Rating
This one has a ton of positive reviews... I thought I'd add one more.

I did a 4 gal boil. Topped to 4.75 in my primary (7gal carboy - no blow off needed). Primary 1 week - Secondary for 2. Force carbed @ 25psi for a couple days, then turned down to 8psi to serve.

At first, the flavor didn't seem right, but I patiently waited, as other have insisted you need to do with this one. It's been in keg for 4+ weeks, and has turned into a great brew. A little nutty, a little coffee, a little caramel. A very solid brown ale - Better than Moose Drool, IMHO. Even the wife likes it, and she normally prefers the Berry Wiess. (Posted on 9/22/14)
Stop reading and order this kit! Review by MmBeer

Is it possible that NB just has too many kits? If there wasn't so many I want to try I would make this every 4th or 5th batch. It's just a great all around beer. Much better IMO than what it's cloning. I've had some friends who are the typical "Oh no thanks, I don't like dark beers" people that I basically forced to try it and they were pleasantly surprised. This is something you could have on hand year round, but is maybe more suited for fall or winter months. Even as I move more towards making my own recipes, this is a kit I will make again and again.

Had a party to break in the new bar.Had this on tap and EVERYBODY liked it."give me another brown" was all I heard all night.This is a beer everyone has to try. So balanced and flavorful and rich. If it wasn`t for the fact I have about 20 others to try, I would order this again right now! Awsome job N.B. (Posted on 9/10/14)
Let it sit Review by Dan
Rating
This was my first brew which was done in early January. Drank all but one bottle within a few weeks. Drank that last bottle last night. Shared with a friend who also brews. Just fantastic. Tastes exactly as described. I now wish I had more. Going to brew again within the next couple of weeks and save every bottle for holidays. At least that's the plan. Let it sit. You won't regret it.

Fantastic brew Review by Sean
Rating
This is the good stuff!

I was going to bottle condition it for 3 weeks, but yesterday was the 2 week mark so I put a bottle in the fridge to check the carbonation level. I drank that bottle today and it was fantastic, with great flavor and aroma. The carbonation is nearly there, so it might only get 2.5 weeks.

Did 1 week primary fermentation, 2 weeks secondary, and (so far) 2 weeks of bottle conditioning. Instead of doing 100% corn sugar for the priming solution, I did a 50% corn sugar / 50% Briess Golden Light DME mix. The next time I brew up some Caribou Slobber (and there *will* be a next time) I'll probably just use 100% corn sugar. (Posted on 6/20/14)
Great Brown Ale Review by John
Rating
This is my first brown ale that I've brewed and it came out fantastic. I added a Tbsp of cloves to the boil to give it a sweeter smell and a bit of spice bite. 2 weeks in the primary, 3 weeks in the secondary with 3 weeks in the bottle. The group enjoyed it, wife hated it (worships Bud lite and Coors Lite). Am going to unleash the remaining case on a group of bro's in laws that enjoys this type of brew. All Smithwicks and Newcastle drinkers. (Posted on 6/13/14)
