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%.

Poured out of an aluminum bottle!!! I am not kidding. Very powerful orange-rind roasted aromas. (I should know I grew up in Bradenton, FL home of Tropicana OJ where they turn orange peels into cattle feed by roasting them). Deep ruby/ brown color with a light brown small head. Big roasted malt flavors. Not overly complex, nutty roasted flavors dominate. Medium body with an excellent finish. This is good stuff. We need more moose here on the East Coast.

Poured a deep cola brown with a moderate head of fine carbonation. Aroma of raisins, caramel, and hazelnut. Flavor was much like the aroma, but with with a bit of tangy and toasted malt and a slight hoppy bite. Mouthfeel was smooth, creamy with a dry finish. A great example of the style.

(bottle) Very dark brown with modest tan head. Sl. sweet malty aroma. Mosted malt flavors with a hint of smoke-on its way into porter territory.

Had on draft at Sanford's Pub and Grub in Rapid City, SD. Found this to be a run of the mill brown ale. Would make a decent session ale. Dark copper appearance; decent off-white head with a fair amount of lacing. No real aroma to it. A tad watery overall. There is a bit of maltiness in the flavor but the finish is a bit metallic. Not bad - just nothing to write home about.

Honestly a beer that fits its name. Pours very thick and a deep dark brown with a rich huge creamy head. A nice bit of a bite at first then mellows out in the aftertaste into a slightly smoky, wood flavor. Strong bits of caramel and carob finish this out and is nicely sweet in the end.

What a funny name! Very interesting character though. Somewhat smoky but not overpowering. Of course great on-tap, but delivers a nice head and flavor out of the bottle as well, suprisingly. Send this East please!

Good color of brown with brick red highlights, head was standing awhile sort of thick. Nice roasted malt aroma with some dried grainyness. Taste is good, balance of hops and roasted malt flavors but a little to tangy and leaves a hint of cocoa. Felt of medium body but something was missing from this brown. I expect a good smooth feel to a brown with nut like flavors, but this had to much hop and tang for this style. Thats just me I guess. Finishes dry with a hop bite and some wood flavors like a toothpick. Its drinkable, sure, but I've had better, but if offered a Moose Drool... I wouldn't turn it down.

A deep brown with a tinge of red running through it. The aroma is sweet and malty with some caramel. A medium body. The flavor hints at nutiness but prevails with roasted malts. Quite delicious.
