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 beer is one of my favorites for drinking with barbecued foods or on tap at a grillhouse. Roasty aroma. The body has essences of caramel, chocolate, and coffee in a fine balance with malt. Smallish head on tap, slightly brown shade. Definitely a go-to beer in the summer or early fall when eating meat; excellent once you get tired of lighter beers as the weather cools down.

14.5 oz aluminum bottle: muddy, red brown, fluffy tan head persists and releases a decent nutty, almost chocolate aroma. Increasingly thin palate, almost watery…some nice roasted fruits, slightly sweet milk chocolate…finish does have some light bitterness and some stickiness; really not bad, but nothing special.

I’ve had a few times from bottle and tap. It seems to be the standard beer in the MT and WY for after activites libation. Fairly dark. Maltiness is a keystone characteristic. As long as I keep skiing at Jackson Hole, I’ll keep drinking this stuff.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 8, 2004
12 oz bottle. Very dark, clear brown, moderately thick lasting taupe head. Pronounced caramel-toffee nose, a bit of nuttiness, almonds perhaps. Good body and texture, moderately sweet and quite malty, just a touch vinous...but the finish is a bit soapy and weird. OK overall.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2004 Out of the bottle pours a fantasticly rich, dark beer(almost black), with a light tan head. THe smell is a mix of coffee, toffee, and nut. Very smooth, a little too bitter for me. THe first one is great, but the next one(s) are a bit overpowering. Conclusion: Smooth and Dark, rich flavosomewhat unpleasant aftertaste, goes well with some peanut butter crackers.

A nice brown ale with a nutty aftertaste. The head was light and fluffy. Was a bit wattery but I wouldn’t mind having more.

Funky aluminum bottle with the most immature, amateur, assinine drawing of a drooling moose I could ever imagine. The beer was brown and thin. Not much of a brown ale, more American Standard tasting than anything. The bottle says it has "big sky flavors". They should really work on "brown ale flavors" if you ask me. Thin, watery, adjuncty, and nearly tasteless.

Tan color. Malt flavors, like a toffee bar. Medium finish, not too dry. Easy drinking. I must say I was too distracted by the drooling moose on the aluminum bottle.

Consumed from a pint glass. Liked this beer quite a bit. Good aroma with a nice tan head. Taste was not disappointing either...just sweet enough. I generally do like brown ales, though.
