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%.

Rather disappointing and generic brown ale. Almost no head. Hints of roasted and nutty flavor.

Pours a dark brown with tan head. Creamy yeast and toasted malt smell. Butter taste up front and medium roasted malts in the finish. This is a decent brown, but I donít favor the diaceytl flavors.

Malty brown ale with a very nice body, on the light side for an American brown. Big fluffy head and nice chocolate flavors in excellent balance.

pours a dark brown, capped off with a white foamy head, giving off a smell rife with chocolate malts. flavor was pretty rich, with sweet caramel malts and chocolate making up the lionís share of the tastes, with a hint of hops coming in late. the lingering aftertaste was both chocolates and hops, and the body was thin but not watery. a very easy to drink, smooth and flavorful ale. i can easily understand why so many people use this as an everyday beer.

Pours brown with red tones and a tan head. Nose is of dark malts. Easy to drink with a malt and chocolate flavors. Pretty nice beer.

12 oz. bottle. Coppery brown color with a small tan head. Aroma is mostly malt and slightly nutty. Creamy and very smooth with flavors of lots of sweet malt and toffee. Roasted malt finish with just the slightest hint of bitterness. A very good beer.

I was torn going into this beer, as I have heard people who swear by this stuff, yet also brown ale afficianados who are unimpressed. My two cents is that this is a very smooth and creamy brown ale. Very drinkable, yet this is at the cost of the classic brown ale chewiness. Taste is very malty, with no strong nut tastes. Mainly a deep, slightly sweet molasses, with some toffee and chocolate flavors. Mouthfel is creamy and consistent. Aftertaste is roasted and clean, like a dry bean. Iím still split between the camps.

Nice and dark for a brown. Very notty nose, and covers with a nice head. Should get more press than it does.

Poured a very dark amber/brown with a light tan head that faded rather fast. The nose was nutty with malt, caramel and a slight smokiness. The taste started malty with subtle toasty, toffee-ish and cocoa notes. Midway a yeasty fruitiness works its way through, then a backbone of roastiness and some mild grassy and floral hops appear in the end. It finished dry with a lingering nuttiness and floral hoppiness. Very nice! This is a surprisingly satisfying and drinkable beer that probably deserves more attention for its flavor than it gets for its name.
