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%.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (grain, toasted bread, caramel). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Gotta admit Iím surprised...this was another grainy, light-bodied beer that didnít fulfill the near-3.5 average I knew it had. All three bottles I sampled from Big Sky had some of the same problems, so maybe theyíre only good from keg? Definitely below average in this sampleís case though...and Iím usually so forgiving with brown ales...

Funny stuffÖPours an opaque but clear walnut/chestnut color. Minimal head. Aroma was not the best, with musty nuttiness and an almost brine like quality. Actually had a nice nutty creamy lightly pined brown ale flavor though. Some toasted male. Colder is better for this beer. The body is creamy but sharper towards the end (especially when warmer).

Aroma very dessertlike. It smells of coffee and chocolate - very pleasant. I am not a fan of brown ales and this beer reinforces that feeling. I find this style of beer too sweet and lacking a central idea. Stong malts with strong hops doesnít work as a flavor combo - maybe for the winter months this would be better. I felt it had a maltiness not unlike Japanese soy sauce minus the saltiness. A tad too fizzy as well. I will stick to ales.

From a bottle. Starts out malty, and in fact I first thought that it would be too sweet, but actually, for the style it is well balanced. The chocolate malts are stronger than the hps, but there are enough hops to finish out and clean the palate. A very good example of the style.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Given to me by a distributor, this beer and other Big Sky beers, will be entering Colorado within the next few weeks. Ruby brown color. Malt accented aroma, with tiramisu hints, mocha and hazelnut, nuts and caramel, and spicy hops, though light. Herbaceous and medicinal flavors with toasty accents and coffee and chocolate flavors. Light hop contribution and a fairly creamy and full body. Maybe it isnít all in the name.

12oz bottle received in a trade with Indiana_Red - Thanks Ken! - Pours a nice ruby brown color with a decent offwhite head that shrinks to about an eighth of an inch and laces the glass well. Aromas of caramel, nuts, a touch of coffee and maybe even a touch of honey. Flavor is nutty, notes of toffee, caramel, a bit of chocolate, and a nice dry earthy finish. The mouthfeel is good for a brown ale. Not completely watery. Creamy and smooth. Quite drinkable. Definitely one of the top browns Iíve tried.

I really enjoyed this beer when I went to Yellowstone. A word of caution- elevation does make a difference.

On tap at a restaurant where they couldnít tell me what type of beer it was or who brewed it: It looked like Coca Cola in the glass, except a Coke has more head. The aroma is chocolate coated caramel. This seemed a bit thin, watery, but I suspect much had to do with the restaurant bar. The flavor was good, caramel, chocolate, a very slight earthy hop presence. I definitely have to try this someplace else and rerate.

Pours a deep brown with a lasting, off-white head. Aroma is heavily chocolate with some caramel. Flavor reflects aroma and is very clean with a nice balanced sweetness. Body is med-heavy. Finish is mildly bitter. Very nice brown ale.
