Caribou Slobber Extract Beer Recipe Kit
It's brown, it's named after a large North American ungulate, and its name suggests oral incontinence. Ah, we market products with our minds, but we drink beer with our mouths! Which is why this American brown ale is sure to be your new favorite session beer.
Hard to believe so many enticing flavors can come from one beer recipe kit. But brew up a batch of Caribou Slobber and you'll find dense, drool-worthy layers of malt, caramel, baking chocolate, and a hint of light-roast coffee give way to reveal a hop character that will surprise you 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.

The first sip of Caribou Slobber is a bit hoppy for me. But all the subsequent sips are smoothed out and good. Okay do it again.
Loving it! Was a little worried when a friend stated he had sampled Moose Drool (I guess it’s similar) and was really, really disappointed. But this Caribou Slobber is really refreshing and was very easy to make. I’ll order it again for sure. Thanks Northern Brewer
The ingredients were good, well packed, fresh, and this was a good, very enjoyable, brew.
I'll probably make it again if I can't get other kits from my local brewshop (was closed during coronavirus) or feel too lazy to go shopping. The brew itself turned out great, I really liked it, but I wasn't so overwhelmed to be compelled to write a review... receiving at least 4 $@ing "friendly reminders" from Northern Brewer to review finally tipped the scales.
So to Northern Brewer: here's your review, now leave me alone.
To fellow homebrewers: This really is a good, solid brew that I'll probably make again.
This is my second favorite from Northern Brewer. I go back and forth between the Hefewiezen and this. Nice blend of flavors.
Left in fermenter about 3 weeks, then kegged. Nice dark color and smooth taste. No harsh roast taste. Would brew again.
