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%.

This was a better than expected beer, had it in a bottle. As a brown ale it had a lot porter characterisitics on the attack with not much on the aftertaste. A very decent brew.

Very dark brown body, minimal white head. Roasted caramel aroma. Wheat bread and more caramel in the flavor with an indistince buttery hop flavor. Overall this beer features an average caramel-roast flavor with real outstanding qualities.

Bottle pours ruby brown, small tannish head, & superb lacing.   Aroma is of roasted malts, nuts, and light cocoa.   Seems fairly nutty on the flavor, light roasted malts, and a bit malty too.   Mouthfeel and body seem a tad thin, but the flavor is quite nice.

Brewed in a great part of the country, but not so good of a beer. The flavor seemed a little odd.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 A friend visiting Montana brought this one home for me - thanks Pigboy! You have to love the name! +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours very dark brown with a small head. Thee is a mild malty scent. It tastes like a typical brown ale. A little smoke, a bit of a bitter bite. Slightly nutty. A bit of a roasted aftertaste that lingers.

Bottle at Fameous Dave's in Minnetonka. Bottle pours a dark brown, almost black with a fizzy head that dissipates like a soft drink. The aroma is roasty. The flavor is roasty and somewhat Porter like, with a nice lingering sweetness. Overall, not bad.

Ok, I am slightly disapointed, this doesn't taste anything like Moose drool!!!!! Damn false advertising. We need more lawyers in this country to prevent travisties like this from happening.

Dark brown, aroma of nut and malt, sweet rich roasted malty flavor, slight hops in the finish. Nice tan head on this one. Nicely done.

Just like a typical Amber Ale, only darker. An aside here, but there's a prof at Univ Oregon Law who gives out Moosehead beers in class as prizes for knowing trivia questions. He's very well liked and every year for the past 20 or so years, the previous year's students have a roast in his honor. They storm the classroom and take over the class. The next two hours are filled with skits about specific cases from the class, songs, and retrospectives on the professors life. Cases of Moosehead are brought in and are given to the students and professor. There's a "secret" word (the subject of the class) and whenever that word is said (oh, about 150 times during the two hours), that professor has to drink. Well, since we're in the PNW with so many truly great beers around, Moosehead is hard to come by within a week or two of that event, so someone brought Moose Drool for their part of the beer donation. Anyway, that's where I first had this beer two years ago. Where was I? Oh yeah, a beer review... Pours a dark brown with a decent head and minimal lacing. Smells and tastes like a typical brown ale; rather malty without being as sweet as a typical amber, offset with just enough hops. Nothing special, nothing great. Mouthfeel and drinkability are, likewise, average. Decent beer that will always hold a dear spot in my heart. But if you didn't have that class, you'll find this to be mediocre. Not bad at all, just not great.
