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%.

Very nice mahogany presentation and tan foam, plus I love the label, however gimmicky it may be. Lightly sweet malt nose, with a bit of earthiness. I don’t consider browns to be a versatile style (yes I’ve tried Rogue) and this is not a beer to knock your socks off, but it is well executed and highly drinkable.

Bit of a roasted flavor. Not too many hops. Good brown color, no red like some other brown ales. THis is a darker brown ale, similar to a porter.

Bottle: Sweet malty aroma, with hints of roastiness. Roastiness much stronger in the taste, with coffee and chocolate as well. Minimal hoppiness. Fairly sweet coffee aftertaste. Seems more like a porter than a brown ale.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2003 re-rate Dec 16, 2003 thanks to kyzr for this one. Very nice malty, cookie dough aroma. Good looking dark brown pour with a two finger tan head. Light/med mouthfeel, but a decent roasty taste. Aug 9, 2002 While in Missoula, had it on tap several times. Excellent brown ale. Not as good in bottles. I'll rate the tap version: great chocolately, malty taste. If you're in MT, find it.

Had it on tap, really outstanding. Maybe one of the best brown ales I have ever had. Chocolate, malt a hint of coffee, almost full enough of a body to be a stout. But really really good.

There’s really two different Moose Drools: the excellent tap and the ordinary bottle. The taste combines a sweet molasses (unusual for a brown ale, really) with a decent hop flavor. Highly recommended on tap; less so in the bottle.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2002
One of the sweeter brown ales. You might actually mistake it for a low alcohol doppelbock. Heavy chocolate flavor and aroma. In my opinion one of the best beers in America. Careful though, very different in a bottle.

Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2002
On tap. Very nutty and malty aroma. Flavours of coffee, molasses, and roasted malts, almost stout like. Wonderful palate.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 1, 2002
Clear chestnut. Foamy thin light tan head. Steady carbonation. Light aroma of caramel, chocolate and grassy hops. Light and smooth. Lightly roasted and black malt aftertaste. Grassy hop bitterness. Decent balance. Slightly fizzy. Hints of sweetness, but fairly dry. Finishes grainy, grassier and just eh.

not a bad ale coming from a small town with limited access to good beer this was a welcome sight.
