Surprisingly nutty, with a slightly woody aroma. Certainly a good beer, but not my favorite.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Picked up a case of Moose Drool at South Bay Drugs and Liquor in San Diego, CA. Pours a dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma combines roasted, chocolatey notes with hints of vanilla and a healthy dose of molasses. Flavors are subtle, but very nice...molasses/brown sugar, nutty chocolate, raisins, and a bit of coffee-like aftertaste are all well-balanced, and wrapped up in a fairly light-bodied and refreshing beer. Overall, this is a really tasty and drinkable brown ale! I’ll definitely drink it again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark reddish brown with a lot of tan head. Aroma is hoppy with an alcohol bite. Flavor is mild, with a bit of coffee and caramel and a slightly hoppy aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel and a tad watery, but better as its temperature rose in the glass. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium frothy tan head over clear rusty brown ale with ruby highlights. Smells like brown -- earthy chocolate and toffee, faint grass. Light roast taste up front to dark caramel to cocoa, leaves just a little hop tang in the finish. Definitely on the malty side. Medium palate, coats the mouth but easy to drink.

roasted malt/caramel nose. very nice looking in glass(excellant clarity) they roasted the malt just right, gives a hint of dark roasted malt but not over-bearing. very long, clean finish. damn good brown ale. finally available in illinios(from what i hear exclusively at binny’s)

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep brown but clear color, best looking when held up to the light. Aroma was on the weak side. Malty taste with a smooth consistency, but fades quickly.
