COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moose Drool is our Brown Ale. Far and away the best selling beer brewed in Montana, Moose Drool is chocolate brown in color with a creamy texture. Our brown ale is a malty beer with just enough hop presence to keep it from being too sweet. The aroma also mostly comes from the malt with a hint of spiciness being added by the hops. Moose Drool is brewed with pale, caramel, chocolate, and whole black malts; and Kent Goldings, Liberty, and Willamette hops. It has an original gravity of 13 degrees Plato, and is 4.2% alcohol by weight, 5.3% by volume.
Note: ABV went down to 5.1%.

Very dark brownish-ruby with a clingy tan cover. Nutty, brown malt aroma with a little powdered sugar. Overwhelming brown malt flavour, nutty watermelon, ending with a pleasant hazlenut. Fairly sweet and with no bitterness, no matter what they say in the Commerical Description. Medium body, moderate carbonation, Lasting nut flavour. I think I just donít like brown ales.

(14.5 oz steel bottle) This is a fairly one-dimensional beer, but weíre talking about a style that doesnít show many dimensions to begin with. Nevertheless, it has solid flavor that Iím really enjoying. This beer packs in lots of sweet, chocolaty, toasty, and lightly roasty maltiness and very gentle bitterness in the finish, with hops playing a role that seems little more than an extra in a crowd scene. A very aromatic, toasty and chocolaty malt nose is equally pleasant. Medium-full body matches the relative robustness of the flavor. Ruddy, medium brown color, topped by a half inch of light tan head that settles to a ring. One of the better brown ales Iíve tasted, and the steel bottle is perfect for those fishing trips I never take.

Pours a deep dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of coffee/chocolate kinda sweet. Roast bitter coffee flavor with nice hop ending.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Color of mahogony wood with a light, tan head. Aroma is toast, grass, and milk with some chocolate and fermentation esters sitting on a nice caramel foundation. Flavor is very toasty, some earthiness, a touch of sweetness, some dark cherry, and a grassy character that stretches long into the finish. Similar to Avery Ellies Brown.

New to the site and donít know the jargon, but know what I like and I like this beer. Use to only be able to get it in western Montana, but since I have moved glad to see it has made it way to wider distribution.

12 oz. bottle. mahogany brown on the pour with some ruby edges and a tan foamy head. a nice mild chocolate flavor but thought it was a little too fizzy and needed a bit more hop presence. certainly an easy drinking ale and can see how this would make for a good session beer. Thanks to Lou for the Montana beer!

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2005
Bottle: Poured a very dark brown color ale with a medium foamy off-white head with better then average retention. Aroma of molasses is quite dominant. Taste is also dominated by this strong molasses feeling, which doesnít do it for me. Tasted like bad extract homebrew kit. Canít see why this is rated so highÖ

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Enjoyable, not great. Beautfiul dark reddish brown with a large tan head. Taste of a little chocolate, a little malt, a little hops. No real intensity of flavor. Small in the mouth as well. Pleasant and enjoyable, simple, not off-putting.

This is one of my favorite brown ales, dark brown in color with a thick creamy head. The chocolate flavors in it are just the right sweetness to not be overwelming. A hint of hoppy bitterness at the end is a nice compliment. This may sound weird but try it with chocolate chip cookies.
