A classic brown ale with a gimmicky name. This beer transports me to Montana despite never having seen a moose. Tasty.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a clear coppery brown with a one- to two-finger light tan foamy head that diminished slowly to a collar but laced well. Carbonation light and medium sized. Aroma of sweet but mild malts with hints of roasting. taste of sweet caramel malts with very low hops bitterness. Light body. Smooth and sweet on the finish.

Pours amber with light ivory head. Aroma is nutty, nibs, caramel, loads of malt. Taste is smoky, the caramel malts and the cocoa. It’s a good offering. Brown ales aren’t really my gig, but I’d drink it again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear amber-brown with one finger of tight tan head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Nose is roasty malt, caramel, molasses, nutty, light smoke. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Medium to light body, moderate carbonation, medium duration finish. (3/5)
Quite a drinkable brown. Light smoke is somewhat reminiscent of a rauchbier, without being intrusive. Malt dominant, of course, but there is a small hop bitterness keeping the sweetness under control. That, along with the light body tending to the watery, would probably make it easy to session.

Brown-reddish, off white head, nice lacing and mild head retention. Caramel, mild roast, and mild earth note aroma. Medium bodied, sweet caramel malt, mild roast, mild dark fruit, and watery finish. Decent balance, refreshing dry notes, and lite bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a pleasant one-finger off-white head. Moderate retention and a bit of lacing. Opaque and dark brown to black. Nose is nutty and malty, though not too heavy. Medium body. Taste is fairly malty with some nuttiness, a little smoke, and a little woodiness. A tiny bit of hops on the end. Pretty dry. A little watery to me. Not too complex of a beer. An easy drinking dark beer.
