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%.

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.

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.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2005
Pours reddish-brown with an average off-white head. Malty and woody (oak?) aroma that carries through slightly to the flavor. Some nutty, roasty flavors. Not bad, but I didn’t think this one was anything special.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 10, 2005
Poured a clear medium brown color. Aroma was very malty. It even had a smell of just opened bag of malt extract. Flavor also very malty with that malted powder taste. Like the stuff my wife puts in malteds for me. MMM...malteds. Touch of bitterness at the end. Light to medium body.

This one had an odd bit of character that I wasn’t expecting from a brown ale with a bit of vanilla and wood that made one of the group actually ask if it was whiskey-barrel aged. It wasn’t, but the vanilla and wood definitely backed up the sweet dark malts.

I finally got my hands on the ol’ moose drool and what a delight it was. Very thick and malty, as I’d hoped. In addition, it’s pretty roasty and a tad burnt for a Brown Ale. Very solid indeed.

GREAT BROWN ALE! The flavor is deep, and is really enjoyable! Great ale from Big Sky, no wonder moose drool is such a hit!

The aroma and appearance are average for a brown ale. The flavor is complex, though not necessarilly in a good way. I think perhaps the flavors just don’t wuite my palate well. I find that it warms quickly, and when it does all I get is a mish-mash of toasted flavors. Just average.

Dark reddish appearance, good head formation. Malty, toasted caramel aroma. Rich dark chocolate flavor, sweet and malty, turns to a dry roasted nutty finish. Pretty tastey broon ale.
