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%.

Aluminum bottle courtesy of Jeffc666. Dark brown/mahogany with a quickly fading beige head. Aroma of roastiness, caramel and ovaltine. Taste has notes of toffee, roasted malt, nuts, caramel, some chocolate and some hops. Pleasantly sweet. Medium bodied with subtle carbonation. Light lacing, no head retention. Doesn’t stand out in any way but it’s a very solid, enjoyable beer.

Poured into a pint glass from a bottle. Quickly dissipating, foamy head. Good malty character. I could drink this every day. A step up from Pete’s Wicked.

A gift from my bosses dad from his trip out west. The nam alone has deterred me from cracking this one open for awhile. I mean really, Moose drool, doesn’t the imagery make you cringe. And then as the previous rater stated the pic on the label adds to the revulsion. What a shame I bought in to the imagery, because this is really a quite good beer. I liked the tart taste finished with a sweet aftertaste.

Two years ago, I hated this beer. I tried it again last night, and found that I’d been wrong. Tastes of amber malt extract: you can taste the color brown, and you know it’s 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 it’s 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 your’e 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 I’ve ever had, and one of the better brown ales I’ve 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.
