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%.

Bottle from Duane. Thanks! Nice dark brown color, no surprise there. Lots of roasted malt aromas and flavors. But there was a bit of a harsh finish that didnít really mesh with the rest of the beer. Take away the finish and this would have been a better beer.

Draft at Old Chicago on 8/9/06. Clear. Really dark brown. Nice amber, red hues when held to the light. Thin 1 cm. light tan head. Aroma - Avg. strength - roasty, smokey, almost some coffee. Flavor - Fairly high up front bitterness. Well balanced, towards malty. Really smokey and roasty malt flavors. Fairly crisp finish. Palate - medium, good carb. Overall - really good beer - You have to be in the mood for the malty, smokey flavor, but if you are itís good. Could be a tad sweeter, but other than that I like it.

beerabill (14) - Silverdale, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2006
Bottle. In my thick glass mug it appears as garnet in color. Head was short lived, and was very light tan. Smells a bitter aroma, coffee, and licorice. Nice smooth mouth feel. Taste a bit like a porter, but has lighter chacteristics. Roasted almonds, dark cheery, chocolate. Some butterscotch aftertaste. Easy to drink, good brew.

tap. dark brown pur with nice tan head. earthy, malts and hop aroma. coffee. nice carbonation. burnt malts, slightly nutty. this is more of a porter than a brown ale and scores lower because of that.

Alluminum bottle. This beer is clearly dominated by roast malts - too much so - it is out of balance for the style. Itís leaning towards being a Robust Porter. Needs to have more caramel malts to soften the presentation but overall what it really needs is less black malt. That being said, if I wasnít drinking this against other brown ales I would say this is a pretty good drinking beer that has a nice hop complexity for a brown ale.

blankboy (6787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2006
Aluminium bottle. Pours a clear, deep and dark ruby-brown with a large lasting foamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, dark fruit, some chocolate and maybe hops -- smells pretty nice for a Brown Ale. Slightly watery flavour of caramel malt, chocolate and not much else -- Iím not tasting any hops -- itís a little simple. Medium bodied. Iím not crazy about Brown Ales, and this one doesnít knock my socks off either, but itís still pretty good and better then I thought it would be.

benpickens (448) - Camarillo, California, USA - SEP 1, 2006
Dark brown to black in color with lots of snapping bubbles at the surface. With a short lived head, it smells earthy and has hints of walnuts. Creamy and smooth with a sweet a nutty flavor with a malty and nutty aftertaste.

JaegerMonster (13) - Willowbrook, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Bottle. Inviting scent struck me more as that of coffee beans than ground coffee, poured a nice deep brown with a good inch of head that was slow to leave. Tasted of chocolate and hops was prevailant and very smooth at first, but the aftertaste seemed too bitter. Would like to try again, although after reading the other reviews will probably seek out the aluminum bottle if possible, and wouldnít mind trying Big Skyís other offerings next time Iím out west.

via trade with Buck Dich - Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. Light spotty lacing. Has a light toasty caramel malt aroma. Very light caramel malt flavor. Very thin mouthfeel. Almost watery. Worth a try. Thanks Jordan.

Bottle. Scent is mildly malty with elements of toasted malt underlying it. Pours out a deep brown with a nice tan-brown creamy head with moderate lacing. Taste is initially chocolate and malt balanced out by a nice hoppiness. Keeps the flavour well balanced. The finish is roasted malt with a background banana element. Has a very nice velvety texture to the mouthfeel. Very unique brown ale overall.
