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%.

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 Smithís 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

tectactoe (2510) - Michigan, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Tap: Chestnut brown color, semi-translucent with a slightly soapy beige head, bubbly & quick to fade to a thin collar. Aroma is full of nuts, toasted malts, a touch of earth, & some faint cocoa dust. Flavor is nutty, toasty, malty, semisweet with hints of some leafy hops to help balance out. Light cocoa powder in the finish with a lingering nuttiness. Fairly typical brown ale. Medium bodied, just shy of creamy. Not bad.

The roasted malt flavor comes through in this rich bodied beer. This has been a family favorite for quite some time, having to pick it up on the way home from long road trips, but now much easier to find in local grocery stores. It has become my new summer boat beer with it now being available in cans.

Theapathyparty (8) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2014 does not count
An easy drinking beer, lots of chocolate, caramel, nuts, roastyness and malt in the flavour, with a hint of spiciness and bitterness from the hops. Full mouth feel, not overly carbonated.

tricyclist (916) - Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Not a brown ale at all. It pours fairly dark and thick wit a full khaki head. Nose is roasted malt and caramel. A little nutty. Flavor is similar, not a large hop presence with more notes of chocolate and nuttiness, caramel and smoothness. Itís not bad and itís growing on me.

ccex (982) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2014
12 oz can pours a clear chestnut brown with small off-white head and a little lacing. Underpowered aroma is malty and nutty with a bit of raisins and perhaps chocolate. Taste is slightly bitter with a slight metallic aftertaste. Body is light to medium with sudsy carbonation. Thereís nothing terrible wrong with this, but I doubt Iíll try it again. The name is the most memorable thing about this beer to me.

ARH (615) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Poured from a 12oz bottle. The roasted aroma consists of caramel and chocolate bar notes with subtle herb character. Itís a rich, dark brown color with a sudsy off white, medium ring and a light lace. Itís taste consists of a medium sweetness and light bitterness. The thinnish beer has a sudsy carbination and a medium, malty body consisting of caramel and chocolate with roasted nutty hints, and a slightly herbal finish. Thereís a light malt, and herb aftertaste. One of my go to winter session beers.
