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%.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Poured a very dark amber/brown with a light tan head that faded rather fast. The nose was nutty with malt, caramel and a slight smokiness. The taste started malty with subtle toasty, toffee-ish and cocoa notes. Midway a yeasty fruitiness works its way through, then a backbone of roastiness and some mild grassy and floral hops appear in the end. It finished dry with a lingering nuttiness and floral hoppiness. Very nice! This is a surprisingly satisfying and drinkable beer that probably deserves more attention for its flavor than it gets for its name.

Light brown with a thin white head. Slight nutty smell with some nice malt undertones. Kind of nasty tasting intially with a nice tasting, allbeit watery aftertaste to it. Not that bad but not that great either.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2005
Bottle thanks to Willblake. Brown color with a small tan head. Sweet chocolate malt aroma. Flavor was mostly sweet malt. Could have used a bit of hops to cut the sweetness. One dimensional.

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.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - MAY 22, 2005
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.

beerbill (3565) - 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.
