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%.

This pours a deep brown color, with a nice head. Overall, I enjoyed the flavor of this - more stoutish, with roasty chocolate malt flavor, than like a brown ale. It was a bit watery, especially paired with the stout flavors, but overall a nice beer.

Bottle sampled with beerded_one from his west coast connection. Pours bronze\brown with a decent sized light tan head. Aroma of caramel, alcohol, chocolate, slightly nutty. Flavor is caramel, sweet, bitter hoppy under tones (mild), slight chocolate and nuts in the flavor also, good body, good brown ale.

The in-laws went to Montana and all I got was a bottle of Moose drool...Thanks. It poured a clear dark brownish amber. Relatively thick beige head. Oily texture. Watery palate, although it got better with each swig. Good overall flavor, but not great. Seemed more stoutish than your average brown ale. And of course the best part is the label. Definitely a keeper for the collection.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2009 Went to school in Missoula, Montana, home of Big Sky Brewing. I had this beer on numerous occasions and will say it is a hometown favorite. The Drool is dark brown ale, with a hint of nuts, caramel, and chocolate. It has a smooth texture. I agree with some other posts in the importance of labels, names, and logos and this beer has done a good job.

Nice and dark, hits all the right notes for the style with a nice smooth/silky body. Finish is a little weak, I expected something more at the end. Otherwise though, itís an enjoyable drink with a great name/label, and yes, that does count for something.

Certainly not terrible, with good porter or stout like hints; it seemed dark for a brown ale. Nice nose, and it goes down easy. Plus, youíve gotta love the drooling moose image on the label.

Thanks to BŁck Dich for the unsolicited offering. Dark red-brown body with a sudsy beige head that receded to a persistent film. Aroma is surprisingly fruity and distinct with a suggestion of toffee. Well-caramelized, malty flavor with an element of chocolate and some light roast. A medium sweet and distinctly flavored brown ale with an enjoyable malt character.

Bottled. Pours a clear brown with a lacy off-white head. The aroma isnít pronounced, but it shows lightly floral/citrus with some sweet malty notes behind the hops. Light-bodied with a just a dash of cream in the mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. The taste is roasty chocolate/caramel/malt/nuts with a dry nutty finish that includes a minor spice contribution from the hops. Absolutely sessionable.

12oz bottle: Surprisingly good brown ale here, thick lightly brown head and deep dark body. Plenty of thickness in the aroma and flavor departments, lots of roasted malty chocolatey goodness. A very tasty brown ale that I would drink more than regularly if given the chance.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 Nicely balanced, nutty, roasty, not over done. Exceptional flavor and mouth feel. Creamy yet not too sweet and not sticky. I didnít think I like this style much but this ale is very good. On tap at Laurel Tavern in Madison WI
