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%.

Pours a clear dark amber (cola brown) that is a dark ruby under intense light. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of malt - biscuit, caramel and a touch of char/roast. Heavy light body that is quite smooth with a bit of oiliness in the texture. Superb carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish. The flavor is good but lacks intensity. Balance is world class and complexity is good. The flavors appear as a blend and donít separate much. The heavier flavors (roast, chocolate) are the most noted and sweetness never materializes. Light herbal hop flavor and bitterness provide the middle. The finish is a slow fade of blended flavor.

Old rating---Hello Montana, can. Dark brown color with a medium, frothy head. Aroma of malts. Sweet malt taste up front with some nuttiness following. The finish is pretty smooth.

Moose Drool pours a nice deep shade of brown and tastes...not brown. Itís got a good, rich flavor that doesnít tend to drift in either direction (bitter or sweet). It sits in the middle and has a light enough body to want to drink more than one without feeling shitty about it.

Gift from a buddy that just came back from Montana. Pour is dark brown with a medium tan head that does not linger. Aroma malty,nutty and hints of chocolate. A pretty lite beer that nothing jumps out at you but still makes you want to drink and at 5.2% adv you can.

Bottle. Nutty and dark chocolate aroma. Pours with a deep brown colour and very small head. Not much carbonation. Brown sugar is the main flavour with some woody and nutty notes. Syrupy texture with a nicely balanced finish.

You gotta like the name! Pours a very dark brown closer to a porter than brown ale, but looks good. Hints of roasted malts and very slight chocolate flavor. Not strong but lets you know its there. worth a try.

Livendadream (191) - New Mexico, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Btl pours a crystal clear brown color with ruby highlights. Nice fluffy off white head that lingers leaving webs of lace on glass. Smells of sweet bread,roasted coffee beans,burnt sugar,earth and spice. Tastes of caramel,milk chocolate,a hint of coffee and nuts that were roasted on an open fire. Medium body, nicely carbed, silky mouthfeel and a spicy yet wicked smooth finish. I had this beer a million years ago at the brew pub and it was awesome. Today this beer is still fantastic. I do not understand why this does not have a higher rating. I could drink this beer all day long. This beer makes me happy! 🍺
