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%.

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.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2005
On tap at a restaurant where they couldnít 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 doesnít 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.

rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2005
Pours a dark brown with nice red tone beige foamy head that (unfortunately) dwindles to almost nothing. Mild, almost non-existant aroma (almost putting my face in the glass to smell anything). Flavor is good nutty/coffee like but unremarkable. Body is nice and creamy coating the palate in what flavor is available. Wife says "Thatís not good."

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Pours a dark ruby brown with a small creamy beige froth. Light aroma of pale malt, no roast despite the color, lightly toasted cereal and a hint of hops. Iím really failing to see the huge appeal in this brew??? Itís good and drinkable but nowhere near where it is rated. Lightly sweet with a touch of caramel, chocolate and coffee, just a touch but very balanced. Light bodied with soda carbonation. [edit] this beer goes great with food... just light enough to drink and just enough flavor to stand up without getting in the way + 0.1

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Bottle thanks to Sparky27 and jake65. Pours a light brown amber color with a finger of light tan head. Aroma is mostly caramel, with some chocolate and coffee, but overall a thin metallic aroma. Taste is a bit more stout, lots of caramel or toffee, malty sweet, with a finish of grassy hops and a light bittering.

CanIHave4Beers (3142) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Pors a nice clear reddish brown with a small head and some lace. The aroma is plummy and nutty and mildly malty sweet. The flavor has plety nof caramel and a little booze with some good nuttiness, a little iced tea chracter and some hop bitterness. Overall not one of the stronger offerings from Big Sky, howerver it might just be because I donít really like brown ales. Eh, itís drinkable!

On Tap at Taphouse. Pours a clear reddish brown with tan head and mild caramel aroma. Get a mild sweet roasted nut flavor and a little bitterness. Far more carbonated than I remember and relatively mild overall (palate change?)
