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%.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Bottle from Willblake at the Jimmack invitational gathering. Brown with a thin light tan head. Candied chocolate aroma. Malty light flavor. On the sweet side, and no bitterness. Lacking a little in depth.

My brother and I spent an entire day croosing this state and it finally gave us something in return. Not much of an aroma. It kind of reminds me of the Cottonwood Brown Ale, but has more abundant chocolate malts.

shadey (1909) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Dark brown with reddish edges. White head. Aroma is mild and sweet nutty. smooth mouthfeel. Rich malty flavor. A nice brown. This would be a great session beer.

beerbill (3508) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2006 12 oz. bottle and 14.5 oz. alumabottle. Deep brown color with nice lacey head. Roasted malt comes through in the aroma and follows through in the flavor. A delicious brown ale. I wish Big Sky sold this stuff in the Northeast.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2005
Deep chestnut brown in color with a small, wispy tan head. Aroma is very much chestnuts, caramel and some chocolate. Flavor confirms nutty and chocolatey suspicions. Toasted malts protrude, like roasting over a campfire. Sequence of roasted, caramel and chocolate malts make up the most predominant taste elements. Hazelnut aftertaste. Decent brown ale.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 14, 2005
In the bottle. This is clearly the best beer made by Big Sky. Standard brown with an off-white head. Strong chocolate aroma. Good roasted scent. Malty caramel toasted flavor. Very nice balance of flavors. I typically have nothing good to say about this style of beer, but I really liked this brown ale.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Pours a dark brown, small off white head. Aroma is licorice, roasted malt, and some cream/sweet notes. Flavor is sweet, malty, and roasted. Not bad.

Moose Drool is a wonderful brown ale, it is absolutely no wonder it is the best selling beer in Montana. The look is very dark and solid looking, yet the beer is lighter in flavor than the looks would tell you. It has a sweetness too it, yet not ’sweet’ a slight chocolatey taste. Pitcher after Pitcher of it goes down smooth and never gets bitter. I only wish it was available in more areas.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2005
12 oz bottle/can. Light brown color with small, sticky head that laces nicely. Nutty and malty aroma. Taste is roasted malt and caramel but not too sweet. My new favorite canned beer.

Rentalman (103) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2005
Bottle - Pours opaque brown with a tan head. Smells like they did not cheap out in the malt department also a bit of roastiness. Flavor is toasted malt with a hint of mocha. A bit of bitterness for ballance. Pretty good but I bet this was more interesting when the brewery started out.
