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%.

12 oz. bottle. mahogany brown on the pour with some ruby edges and a tan foamy head. a nice mild chocolate flavor but thought it was a little too fizzy and needed a bit more hop presence. certainly an easy drinking ale and can see how this would make for a good session beer. Thanks to Lou for the Montana beer!

Boutip (5910) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2005
Bottle: Poured a very dark brown color ale with a medium foamy off-white head with better then average retention. Aroma of molasses is quite dominant. Taste is also dominated by this strong molasses feeling, which doesn’t do it for me. Tasted like bad extract homebrew kit. Can’t see why this is rated so high…

Enjoyable, not great. Beautfiul dark reddish brown with a large tan head. Taste of a little chocolate, a little malt, a little hops. No real intensity of flavor. Small in the mouth as well. Pleasant and enjoyable, simple, not off-putting.

This is one of my favorite brown ales, dark brown in color with a thick creamy head. The chocolate flavors in it are just the right sweetness to not be overwelming. A hint of hoppy bitterness at the end is a nice compliment. This may sound weird but try it with chocolate chip cookies.

I don’t care that some people badmouth brown ales, but I love them. This is definitely my favorite, and it comes from my native state of Montana. It’s dark with a tan head, and it has a chocolatey/coffeeish flavor to it. They sell it up in Janesville, Wisconsin, for anyone in Chicagoland who’s wanting to try it.

Very dark ruby body that is cartainly not brown. Th head is light and yellowish. The aroma is surprising with chocolate and some earthy tobacco. There is a little note is sweet caramel. The taste has some sweet chocolate and some other caramel. There is also some slightly smoky peanuts. Finishes with a little too mich caramel for me. This is a decent brew that I am glad to finally try. I have heard of this for years.

Draft at Sea/Tac. Very nice looking brown with a great head that lasted for a very long time. Aromas of chocolate and nuts. Flavors were similar with a very smooth finish. Very good for a style I am not a huge fan of.

Spicey malt aroma. Brown body with a dark red hue when held to light, with a tan head. Flavor had a burnt wood flavor kind of giving it a rustic feel. Smooth easy drinkable beer.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Sampled from bottle. Pours a very dark amber-brown with a mountainous off-white head and sheets of lace. A very inviting appearance. Aroma is mild, sweet malt and it is dominated by ripe/tart fruits. Flavor is balanced with rich caramel, chocolate, a hint of ripe fruit and perhaps some floral/earthy hops. Full-bodied for the style with moderate carbonation. Finishes clean. An enjoyable, easy-drinking brown ale.
