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.

As with the previous amber that I brewed, it’s best to wait about 2 extra weeks for the beer to age and flavor
This is a regular in my household. My wife loves it, and I make it Gluten Free for her (as I do all her beers) using Clarity Ferm. This is a good, sharp-biting brown ale, similar to Newcastle, and finishes well with great flavor. As usual for me, I'll experiment with ingredients as I brew it more, but just following the recipe, it's delicious. One note, as with any beer, if you age in the fermentor for a while, you may want to add more yeast at bottling to have enough healthy yeast to carbonate the bottles. If you keg, then it doesn't matter.
Overall, a delicious beer!
I am not a big ipa fan but usually ended up having 3-4 at a time, so it must have been good!!!
One of my favorite beers so far. I liked it a lot after 6 weeks, but it gets even better after another month in the bottle. High reviews from all my friends.
I've ordered this multiple times. It's consistently good quality and an easy brew. Probably my favorite kit.
