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%.

Two years ago, I hated this beer. I tried it again last night, and found that Iíd been wrong. Tastes of amber malt extract: you can taste the color brown, and you know itís sweet. Smooth palate that stops short of creamy. Mid-carbonated, fits well. I will try this again for sure.

The label is too funny. I assume itís supposed to be a drooling moose, but to me it appears to be a moose vomiting into a stream. The last thing you want on a package of anything youríe supposed to consume is a puking animal. The beer is actually pretty good. Nothing like what the sick creature would suggest. Pours a nice brown with an average head. Smells of malt and nuts, ( the kind of nuts you eat ), cashews I think. Tastes sweet and malty. Maybe too sweet. Needs a little more bite to it. Goes down smooth, but a little syrupy for my tastes. Decent drink overall.

Thanks to RobertsReality for this. Rob sent an aluminum bottle of this stuff. Poured deep brown with aroma of malt, big chocolate, coffee, fruit, cabernet, and a slight jalapeno oil note. Tasted malty, very chocolatey, with finishing fruit. Smooth, velvety palate. One of the top 10 chocolatey beers Iíve ever had, and one of the better brown ales Iíve ever had.

Brown in color with a tan head. A malty molasses aroma. More of those malts and molasses in the taste. The rest was hard to describe but it had that "brown beer" taste too it. Over all, not too bad of a beer.

Great Beer. Nice level of both malt and hops with a slight coffee taste. Great color in the glass. Nice dark brown.

12oz bottle, no BBD. Dark. Fair head with lace. Malty, doughy, chocolatey aroma. Somewhat porterish, but the chocolate is more subdued. Good malty ale with some hop spiciness in the lingering finish. SOlid malty/specialty grain brew.

This bottle pours to a medium head, and pours very dark brown. Malty aroma; slighly sweet. Taste is good, but I was expecting a sweeter finish (one of my friends said this was a sweet-tasting beer). Overall it was pretty good, but I think it was served a bit too warm. Iíll try it again and rerate.

Bottled. Pours a dark brown with deep red hues. Itís nearly opaque, though. Small tanned head. Nice caramel aroma with rich malt and light brown sugar. Slight bit of bitterness and nuttiness as well. Taste is more bitterness but itís controlled along with caramel, roasted malt and light nutty notes. Rather enjoyable. Body is medium with light creaminess. Finishes with more bitterness and nuttiness. More roasted notes come through as well as caramel. Pretty good stuff!

dark in color w/ a tiny head smelled of roast malts and hints of carmel.. the palate was creamy and smooth very good .. the flavor had matls, carmel, a touch of citrus and hopps. Its a pretty good beer but has a bit bitter aftertaste late in the glass.
