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%.

I drank this in Minot, ND. It’s a bad name for a bad beer in my opinion. I have had hundreds of beers since and I still think this one stands out for being particularly unpleasant.

Poured from a can into a pilsner glass. Color is dark brown though still quite transparent. Head is light brown and is retained fairly well. Aroma is akin to a great brown ale with fragrant notes of chocolate. This beer was thinner than I had imagined it would be. Its finish is much quicker than I would have expected as its characteristics diminish from your palate almost immediately after swallowing. Overall, a moderately priced beer that is dark yet refreshing. I would say this is a great beer for early fall drinking.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2012 Pours a nice dark color and leaves a nice tan head. It is a smooth refreshing beer that has a taste of nuttiness and caramel. Overall, a good brown ale you can kick back and enjoy.

Just returned from Montana and tried most local brews. This was by far the best. For a brown ale, this brew is loaded with flavor. Hops are present and there’s a smack of malts. Really a nice balance and I’m an IPA fan by nature. Brought back some extras to enjoy for a while.

Aroma is nutty, caramel and almost earthy. Maple brown color with thin dissipating head. Taste is extremely nutty with a hint of caramel as well as malty maples. palate is medium bodied, slightly creamy, soft carbonation fills the mouth. Overall i enjoy this beer a lot. It is one of my favorite browns.

Dark brown with off-white head. Not very aromatic, slight fruit and chocolate. Not very flavorful, similar to its aroma. A few coffee and malt notes. Not great, but drinkable

Had this on tap in Bozeman. I am a big fan of brown ales and this did not disappoint.Nice brown with a pleasant caramel aroma and flavor. HInts of chocolate finishes it off. One of the better browns I have had.

This beer is one of my favorites for drinking with barbecued foods or on tap at a grillhouse. Roasty aroma. The body has essences of caramel, chocolate, and coffee in a fine balance with malt. Smallish head on tap, slightly brown shade. Definitely a go-to beer in the summer or early fall when eating meat; excellent once you get tired of lighter beers as the weather cools down.
