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%.

Draught at Old Chicago in Colorado Springs. Pours dark nut (chesnut) brown wiht a small frothy tan head and lined, spotty lacing.

hopdog (10498) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2004
Poured a dark brown with a large tan head. Aromas and tastes of malts, nutty, and caramel. Smells better than it tastes (but isnít anything too bad tasting). It was an OK beer to try, but I would pass on buying it again given other choices...

Dogbrick (10434) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2002
I have been waiting to get my hands on this beer for awhile, just because of the wacky name. The fact that the beer was pretty good was just icing on the cake. Pours a dark brown color with a medium thin beige head. Aroma of nuts and light caramel. Flavor was smooth and malty with a nutty finish. Although a little uneven compared to the Sierra Blanca Nut Brown I had before it, this is still a decent beer.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2008 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Malt and butter hit my nose first. Even though my glass of this ale was ten degrees too cold, I detect plenty of rich malt, roasted cashews and caramel in the aroma. They say brown ale, I say mahogany ale. Small, fizzy, khaki head. Almost fully diminishing. Nevermind the lacing... what lacing? Who cares anyway? Itís a good looking beer. The flavor is very well balanced. Moderate malt and moderate hops. Bursts of caramel and dark roasted cashews and almonds. Light-bodied with a dry mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. A very short, Sahara dry finish. Very good beer. "Nurse! Iíll have another I.V. Drip of the Moose Drool, please!" Thanks to kyzr for this one!

Clear mahogany with a medium to large beige head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, caramel and chocolate. Flavor had roasted malt, caramel, nuts, chocolate and hints of hops. Fairly dry and crisp. Not bad.

Sammy (10329) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2010
Enjoyed on tap at the Yrd House, Scottsdale. Very dark brown a little head, it was promising. It had some stouty qualities with licorice but it was too sweet, and not so drinkable.Average mouthfeel.
