Ok, I've made Caribou Slobber myself and it is a flavorful beer. So, here are a few ideas -
First off, like kh54s10 and ColoHox said, the taste won't really be right until the beer is finished. I.e., conditioned, carbonated, and chilled. See what you think when the beer is finished.
Also, the hops flavor is strongest on brew day and fades over time, so it's possible that your hops were drowning out the other flavors. This will improve with time.
Other thoughts having to do with the process - are you sure you used all the malt provided? Did you overfill the water? Did you use the full 5 gallon volume during the boil, or only the 2.5 gallons the kit recommends?
Finally, did you get your steeping water up to at least 150 deg F (but below 170)? Was the thermometer you were using reliable? If not, you may not have extracted much flavor from your specialty grains, leaving you with a blah beer (yes, that's a technical term
