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%.

Small brown head, fair retention with a scattered lace. Clear brown ale with ruby red reflections, attractive. Nose of lightly sweet malts, a little nutty. Body is med/light, soft carbonation. Light roast and chocolate flavors, a touch diacetyl. Finish is lightly sweet malts. Acquired in a trade with Indiana_Red, thanks!

Not a huge fan of darker brews, but this is pretty good. Very nice aroma with a good head. Hints of chocolate in the taste. Got a 6 pack as a birthday gift, would definitely pick up myself.

a very good brown ale. Caramel and toffee notes makes this a nice balanced beer.

From the notes. 12oz bottle. Pours brown, malt aroma, taste of malt with a kick of hops. Your basic brown, eminently sessionable.

Not a bad beer. Far from my favorite brown ale but it was still alright. Wouldn’t recommend it to anyone but would have it again.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2004 Not particularly great. Light, metallic, but with a tad hint of smoke. But pretty typical, like almost every other brown ale...

Very dark brown body, minimal white head. Roasted caramel aroma. Wheat bread and more caramel in the flavor with an indistince buttery hop flavor. Overall this beer features an average caramel-roast flavor with real outstanding qualities.

On tap at a restaurant where they couldn’t tell me what type of beer it was or who brewed it: It looked like Coca Cola in the glass, except a Coke has more head. The aroma is chocolate coated caramel. This seemed a bit thin, watery, but I suspect much had to do with the restaurant bar. The flavor was good, caramel, chocolate, a very slight earthy hop presence. I definitely have to try this someplace else and rerate.

Aroma very dessertlike. It smells of coffee and chocolate - very pleasant. I am not a fan of brown ales and this beer reinforces that feeling. I find this style of beer too sweet and lacking a central idea. Stong malts with strong hops doesn’t work as a flavor combo - maybe for the winter months this would be better. I felt it had a maltiness not unlike Japanese soy sauce minus the saltiness. A tad too fizzy as well. I will stick to ales.
