3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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???)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Dark, dark brown with a nice initial head and a nutty aroma. Light coffee initial impression that settles later into more nutty character. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
