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%.

Poured a dark brown with a large tan head. Aromas and tastes of malts, nutty, and caramel. Smells better than it tastes (but isn’t anything too bad tasting). It was an OK beer to try, but I would pass on buying it again given other choices...

Dark brown in color, with a thick, bubbly, tan head. Aromas are cheifly of chocolate, with hints of nuts, and little else. Full texture, mild hops, soft body, not much here, but really decent, compared to the leading brown ales. Miles ahead of Newcastle. An ideal session ale, you could throw down a dozen without a pause. A fine American brown ale, despite the unappealing name. Excellent on draft, though this review was based upon a bottle...

Just returned from Montana and tried most local brews. This was by far the best. For a brown ale, this brew is loaded with flavor. Hops are present and there’s a smack of malts. Really a nice balance and I’m an IPA fan by nature. Brought back some extras to enjoy for a while.

Pours a deep garnet with frothy tan head. Downhill from there. Aroma was funky. Perhaps the smell of moose drool. Wet animal. Weak and fizzy in the mouth. Flavor was like a mocha diluted with water. Very disappointing.

Bottled. This is certainly a good, tasty and refreshing Brown Ale. Thick, slowly dissipating head, nose of cream and caramel. Bold, malty flavor. This is a keeper.

Brown Ale. The Name Captures your Imagination. Not Bad for a Brown Ale...not my Choice in the Category.

Bottle. Yeah its a brown ale, so it was never going to be anything mind blowing, but this faired OK. Nutty caramel and chocolate, cookie-ish malts. Nice light palate, yet enough flavour to keep you interested, i would have been happy neough to drink this for night, but there was too many other beers (really good beers) to try. This wasn’t bad.

Draught. I had this for the first time about 3 years ago as one of 12 beers featured at a beer tasting party I hosted. My recollection is that I was somewhat underwhelmed with it on that day. My impression improved during this most recent tasting. Faint roasted malt aroma. Dark, dark brownish red color with a small, light tan head. Sweet roasted malt flavor with an emphasis on sweet. Solid brew. Not very refined but enjoyable. Nice hoppiness in the finish that comes through as it warms. Wonderful! A well made beer with really nice flavor.

Coffee undertone and smooth as glass flavor. This is good beer. Brown Ales aren’t really at the top of my list but this one was. I’m pleased its lived up to my expectations. Lava glass color I said coffee and chocolate flavoring. Not overly bitter. A very well made product.
