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.

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

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)
Awesome! Review by fender

It tastes great! My friends loved it, even they never liked "darker" beers before. Sort of Newcastle like, but more coffee notes. (Posted on 6/11/14)
Delicious, solid Brown Ale Review by Matt

Brewed this up to have some variety from the IPA's I've been brewing and drinking lately. Very solid brown ale, would highly recommend to fans of the style. (Posted on 6/3/14)
Great First Homebrew Review by Brian
Rating
Well i can finally sit down and write one. I has been a few weeks since i first cracked a brew and i can only say it has gotten better. The flavors and the aroma of the beer is fantastic. It did get a little darker than i would have liked but the flavor and how easily drinkable this beer is was amazing. I have had numerous friends who brew and some that don't compliment me on this and I will most likely brew it again someday. Perfect numbers for the gravity testing and i did have a busy first few days of fermenting. Blow of tube was needed but nothing was lost! Great Brew and on to the next!
THANKS NB! (Posted on 6/2/14)
Great Session Ale Review by CCP
Rating
I actually had a mispick on my kit, and I received twice the specialty grains and no DME (quickly remedied by NB's awesome customer service). Waste not, want not, so in the kettle the extra grains went.

The results were a darker (near porter) body with the most amazing aroma and flavor. I may never make the standard recipe again.

15 days primary, 5 days in keg (FC @ 2.5), White Labs WLP041, ended at 4.86% ABV. Yeast was a bit slow to start, but that's probably just my perception from normally using a starter and not doing so here.

Great Brew!!! Review by MC
Rating
Picked this kit with my starter kit. NB accidently sent irish red ale instead. Made it right and sent the CB Slobber free of charge. Irish red was very bitter and i messed up the bottle carbonation by not putting fresh 15ml of yeast in bottling bucket. Anyhow...I half hopped the kit and it turned out great. The brew was so good I just ordered another kit.....I am actually bummed to be out of it. Can't wait to get the next kit so I can have more on hand....highly recommended......The more it conditioned the better it is....Great brew!!!! (Posted on 5/15/14)
Great fall/winter beer Review by Alex
Rating
This beer is easy to make and easy to enjoy! If you like a little smoother of an after taste try two or three cups of brown sugar with the last set of hops. Remember to let the beer ferment an extra two to three weeks as well. More sugar=longer ferment, enjoy! (Posted on 5/13/14)
pretty good brew Review by David
Rating
I enjoyed the caribou slobber, not my go to beer, but a pretty good brew, seems like a good year around beer, not too heavy, not too light, good flavor, I don't care for brown ales but this is good all around--cheers (Posted on 5/11/14)
