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%.

Suttree (5289) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 14, 2004
Dark brown, tan head. Grainy, malty aroma, with subtle notes of chocolate. Rich malty sweet flavors up front, peppery, dry crisp hops in the finish. Nice, especially for a brown.

Deep brown in color with a brownish-white head. Roasty, nutty, slightly hoppy aroma. This is a well-hopped brown ale. Hint of nuttines in the taste, good chocolate malts. Above average brown ale with good hops and complexity for the style.

Dark brown in color, decent head. Caramely in aroma and flavor. Moderately bitter flavor and finish. Actually pretty good.

Color is a bit darker than what I had anticapted, a lingering head tan in color. Chocolate malts stand out in the aroma and are present in the taste, but caramel malts tend to dominate. Mouthfeel is nice with a heavier body. I am curious as to the yeast (1056 or other as the attenuation is a little higher) Hops are present, but blend into the glass nicely (tettanger or EKG???)

brewess (43) - Iowa, USA - JAN 26, 2004
Dark brown, with a tan head that had staying power. Malt and chocolate dominate the aroma. Chocolte, coffee are the dominate flavors with a touch of molasses for sweetness. The flavor is heavier than an English brown session beer. A brown to have on hand.

balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - JAN 25, 2004
dark brown pour with a nice tan head, smells of roasted nuts, chocolate, and a slight malty aroma, slightly bitter taste with a strong nut flavor with hints of malt and chocolate as well as a slight smokiness, medium body...one of my favorite browns

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 19, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2005 Re-rate: Roasted, sweet, malty aroma; slightly chocolately, fairly malty, adequate hopping, a hint of smokiness; smooth, balanced flavor, finishes with a lingering hoppiness, but not too bad; medium body; quite drinkable. This is an everyday favorite.

Braudog (5932) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Dark, dark brown with a nice initial head and a nutty aroma. Light coffee initial impression that settles later into more nutty character. Decent.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JAN 12, 2004
Difinitive Montana beer. Thick and almost too sticky sweet. Tons of roasted malt in the nose and on the palate. Not a session beer despite the lower ABV (5.3%) unless you love a punishing hangover. Terribly popular with the tourists and all the local gift shops sell shirts, mugs, etc. with the Moose Drool logo which, I'll admit, is pretty cool.

Red-brown with medium head. Big malty aroma. Roasted malt flavour with mild bitterness. A little too burnt for my taste and a bit thin. You have to love the name. "I've just had a bottle of Moose Drool" thanks to Slikwily.
