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%.

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.

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

Really interesting bottle as it was aluminum. Dark ruby brown ale with decent lacing. Smell is orange peel and malt. Taste is very malty with some smoke. Really awesome roasted after flavors. Pretty surprised with this beer.

Well I love the name and label. A nice dark lacquered brown color with a medium beige head. Respectable aroma of caramel, nuts, toasted malts. A sweet nutty taste. I normally do not care for brown ales and I am not sure if I like this because I want to for the name or if it is actually a very good beer. I think it is the later as this has a very nice sweetness with a very balanced dryness. Quality.

Dark amber in color. No head and very little lacing. Somewhat pleasant on the arome that tells of the malty goodness to it. Lots of mat flavors with some smoke and a slight nut taste to it. Overall pretty good but nothing to write home about.
