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%.

Difinitive Montana beer. Thick and almost too sticky sweet. Tons of roasted malt in the nose and on the palate. Not a session beer despite the lower ABV (5.3%) unless you love a punishing hangover. Terribly popular with the tourists and all the local gift shops sell shirts, mugs, etc. with the Moose Drool logo which, I'll admit, is pretty cool.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2004
Red-brown with medium head. Big malty aroma. Roasted malt flavour with mild bitterness. A little too burnt for my taste and a bit thin. You have to love the name. "I've just had a bottle of Moose Drool" thanks to Slikwily.

FatherMoss (21) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - NOV 26, 2003
In bottle and chilled glass. A very dark brown ale, almost no head, decent aroma. Tastes sweet and hoppy. A worthy beer.

wulfhere (217) - Billings, Montana, USA - NOV 25, 2003
Tap. Dark brown, almost opaque. The head is big, but the bubbles are large and fade fairly quickly, leaving only slight Brussels Lace on the sides of the pint glass. Crisp hop aroma, smells of caramel, maltiness and hops. Tastes about as you'd expect--chocolate, caramel, roasted grain, and hops. Sweet, malty, with a hop edge. Nice beer.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2003
Pours dark, nearing opaque. Rocky head and spotty lacing. Mostly sweet malts dominate the nose of this beer. Nothing is standing out. Flavors are small hops, creamy malts and a small finish. Nothing is very surprising about this beer.

Deep brown color with a light creamy head. Nutty flavor with traces of molasses. A good brown ale.

AlabastorJones (800) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Dark brown color, but thin and transparent, thin lacey white head. Barley malt aroma. Thin and light mouthfeel. Very good and complex flavor, crispy nut flavor that fades into some dry mocha notes and molases, there's something else in there too that I can't quite put my finger on, possibly banana, and that's why it was the best summer ever.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2004 A deep, clear ruby amber with a thick diminishing tan head. A sweet bready, malty, nutty aroma with a hint of roast and caramel. Medium watery palate. Flavor is mostly sweet, with roast, chocolate, caramel, nut and malt notes with a slight lactic acid flavor at the end. A little unusual for a brown ale, but very tasty.

Ok Its about time I tried this one again..I had fiorst tried this a few years back when I first started to get intrested in American macros..I did not like it..despite all the rave reviews etc. Comes in the usual Big Sky brown 12 oz long neck..with a rather drooly moose on the label . Its actually an excellent lloking brown ale in the glass.. nice chesnut brown with a lovelly creamy off white head that stays put. But for me after the looks everything else is down hill..smell is pretty weak and what i do smell is like warm milk..mixed with a teeny wee bit of chocolate. tase is ok..but its bland..some choclate ..milky even..then thats it. average in the mouth. average drinkablity. Maybe Im just not a Moose Drool guy..maybe brown ales are not my "stuff" oh well
