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%.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Plenty of sour chocolate tang and chewy doughiness keep this one afloat. Some hazelnuts and toast linger in the background. If I lived in Montana and had to drink this all the time I might tire of it, but it’s a tasty and well-done brown with a solid mouthfeel and just enough fizz to keep it from being weighty. Very nice.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - JAN 30, 2006
A very nice tailgating beer that I shared with my brother (who is also a beer nut) while outside waiting for the Raiders to play. A very nice clean taste, caramel notes with a slight floral nod along with a roasty flavor. A full mouthfeel and a nice clean drink makes this one repeatedly stocked in the fridge.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Pours a very dark brown with a thick two finger head that slowly fades to a thick ring with quite a bit of lacing. Smell; there’s a bit of a nutty smell as well as some chocolate and sweet malts. Taste; this pretty follows the smell. There’s a slightly roasted nut flavor, with chocolate malts. The finish has a bit of hop bitterness going on. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but not bad, and is an ejoyable and very sessional beer.

BeerandBlues2 (10836) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 27, 2006
Draught at Old Chicago in Colorado Springs. Pours dark nut (chesnut) brown wiht a small frothy tan head and lined, spotty lacing. Malty (caramel, chocolate, meal) medium roasted aroma with yeast notes, faint hops. Malty, slight sour yeast (sweat, dough) flavor, low sweetness, low acidity. Medium bodied refreshing and crisp.

mrnutsnbolts (204) - Berkeley, - JAN 24, 2006
Tap @ Raleigh’s. Dark, clear brown with a small head. Smells nutty, malty, and slightly sweet. Satisfying and different than Newcastle, I think a bit more flavorful. Light body, malty, and very drinkable.

natedoggkc (164) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Pours dark brown with slight head. Really smooth and easy to drink with a light hazlenut finish. Would be a good beer with an American dish.

FlacoAlto (3891) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 5, 2006
Pours with a frothy light brown colored head that is perhaps a finger thick. The beer is a deep, dark brown color that can’t bee seen through, while it was being poured it showed a pretty, clear, rich chestnut color. The aroma is at first sweet with notes of crystal malt but then starts to pick up nutty notes of dark malt, hints of coffee, notes of toasted biscuits, and a note that reminds me of deeply browned toast.

The taste is light and has an up front soft sweetness that quickly picks up notes of lightly roasted coffee. The finish is quite lone and makes me think of brown, richly toasted malt that lingers on the tongue with a slightly astringent quality to it. This beer is quite the easy quaffer, tasty enough to be interesting, but light enough to be a session beer. This is really an enjoyable beer, perhaps a tad simplistic, but sometimes that is what really hits the spot.

rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2005
Pours a dark brown with nice red tone beige foamy head that (unfortunately) dwindles to almost nothing. Mild, almost non-existant aroma (almost putting my face in the glass to smell anything). Flavor is good nutty/coffee like but unremarkable. Body is nice and creamy coating the palate in what flavor is available. Wife says "That’s not good."

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Deep brownish red color with average head. Decent aroma of hazelnut, malt and a hint of skunk. Coffeesque flavors with a bit of hops giving it a medium body. Not bad.

pours a very dark brown, red tint when held up to the light. average head and lacing. aroma is smokey, coffee, and maybe a touch of rhubarb sweetness. flavor follows the smell with some hops to it. nicely done.
