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%.

Thanks Degarth. Pours brown thin head. Kinda too thin, but very drinkable and taste good. Mainly roasted malt and some nutiness along with a touch of sweetness, just a good tasting beer.

Great ale for the money. Actually the beer that made me begin to resent those flavorless lagers us college students tend to drink too much of.

Draft in Billings, MT. Dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate sweet nutty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium sweet flavor with a smooth sweet finish that lasted. This beer would go well with a good cigar.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a dark brown color with hints of red, thick tan head and good lacing. Aroma was very much a nutty malt. Chocolate and caramel malts dominated the flavor. Had an okay finihhs, but nothing spectacular. Not bad for a Brown Ale.

"Moose Drool gets bonus points for the great name of course, but it also has some other selling points. The pour is dark brown with a decent tan head that leaves minimal lacing. The aroma is not very strong in any direction, but you can detect some sweet malts. The mouthfeel is good for this style--full and rounded out. The tastes are of roasted malt and some wood with a very faint hint of chocolate. Not a bad brown at all."

I canít get enough of this stuff. Nice chocolate head (I usually order it on tap) and dark brown color. Good, all-mouth encompassing flavor that involves every one of my taste buds. Itís the brown that drinks like a meal.

12 oz Bottle-Trade w/after4ever Poured a dark reddish brown color w/a big, foamy, tan head. Looked like a root beer. Nice nutty, roasted aroma. Malty, roasted, nutty taste. Some coffee & chocolate sweetness. Some hops to balance it out. Big flavor, long finish, creamy, malty, roasted. Good example of a Brown Ale. Thanks for the bottle!!

12 oz Bottle from Degarth, received it today. In the fridge for about 3 hours. I thought I would rate this just because its rare for me to come across a beer from Montana. This is one of very few states allowing drinking and driving thus one would think there would be more beer in circulation. I like the moose on the label, its just screams Montana. My bottle has a slightly different label however. Just took that label off and definitly keeping it. I also love this beer claim to fame: "far and away the best selling beer in Montana." That must be some stiff competition. One rarely sees a statement about alcohol by weight, must be important in Montana. Oh and the beer... well it is what it is. A brown ale thats nothing special and nothing bad, just some extra wet forresty hop in the aroma. I do enjoy the nutty sweet aftertaste.

"Poured dark dark brown with a tan head lacing was great. Aroma was of chocolate and nutty, more hops aroma as it warmed. Flavor was dead on, chocolate roasted malts and nutty as it warmed. Mouthfeel was nice and creamy wish i had a bunch more of these. "

this little moose bellows out (in a slightly asthmatic way) a fairly nice aroma that suggests some of the same raw materials that go into some much bigger moose... uh, i mean beers. those scents are enticing--nice tones of cashew, potting soil and a smudge of oak, date and chocolate-- but this modest brown seems to be designed to fit into a tight lunch schedule, because thereís essentially too much water in the glass for the flavor to get much traction (remember, moose like a lot of water). the moose in question drooled a wealth of clear spiddle the color of well-roasted coffee beans, while giving off a russet sheen. the head meanwhile was as ample, impressively firm, and as bone-tan as any big alaskan bullís antlers. the flavor is nutty and pleasantly malty, with just a nod of peachy sweetness and toast, and an even less emphatic nod to hops (moose hate excessive nodding). still, somehow the spare malts and a equally meager lemon-rind bitterness of this pocket-moose join hands (or hooves) with nimble balance to span the body in a way that keeps it from being a total light-weight.
