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%.

This is one of my favorite brown ales, dark brown in color with a thick creamy head. The chocolate flavors in it are just the right sweetness to not be overwelming. A hint of hoppy bitterness at the end is a nice compliment. This may sound weird but try it with chocolate chip cookies.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a good sized tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of coffee and malt. Flavor is slightly sweet and chocolaty. Palate is relatively thin. Not a bad beer.

We conducted a blind taste test with this beer and 5 other brown ales to objectively determine which one was best. The 5 beers were: Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale, Lost Coast Downtown Brown, Big Sky Moose Drool, Newcastle Brown, and Wychwood Hobgoblin. You can view the video here: http://youtu.be/oz0hSSylY70

Sweet roasted malt aroma with slight hop hints. Great taste, nice and dry finish. Slight bite from the carbonation. Seems to be like a porter-stout mix. I am missing the spice.

Dark copper color, with a small head. Aroma is roasted with some caramel in it. Light on the palate with a slightly sweet aftertaste. Not a bad beer for the style.

tmohr (37) - Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2009
Pours chestnut brown with a small amount of lacing. Mild aroma, transitioning into a pleasant if somewhat mild taste. Not quite on the level of Bell’s or Goose Island, but a very drinkable ale.

mrbirmingham (37) - Kansas, USA - APR 23, 2009
Aroma: Big malt character with spices in the back ground. Appearance: Moose Drool is clear, deep brown and has a tall off white head. Flavor: The toasted/roasted malts are the dominant flavor; it does have spice notes in the back ground. Overall Impression: A solid beer, the toasted/roasted malts are not my thing.

On tap at Hopcat. As of this writing, my favorite brown ale. More hops than I typically notice in this style, which balances the malts perfectly for me. I could easily make this a session beer.

What a color! With a good taste to boot. I'm into the brown ale's right now, and this is one of the top that I've tasted lately.
