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%.

Wonderful beer. I finally got around to trying this & decided to compare it to another, similar beer I was already familiar with - Downtown Brown. From the bottle, this is a very dark, almost black, reddish brown with a fairly thick tan head that disspates only slowly and not entiirely, and leaves decent lacing. The aroma is rich malt - caramel, rich wheat bread, sourdough and nuts. The flavour is full, earthy, and sweet, very faintly sour, and with a hint of bitterness. It’s smooth and very tasty, with a full palate. It seems very English in style, like a sweetish cross between a true English brown ale, and an English ESB with a hint of English strong or old ale body and earthiness.

Maybe my favorite Brown Ale that suffers from a lack of aggressive distributing. The company that has the rights to distribute this beer in Chicago underestimates the value of their product. Very smooth, with a nutty taste and a hint of chocolate in the finish. Personally I feel that is on par or slightly better than Boont Amber Ale, but is a little harder to find. Who doesn’t want to drink something called "Moose Drool"?

One of the sweeter brown ales. You might actually mistake it for a low alcohol doppelbock. Heavy chocolate flavor and aroma. In my opinion one of the best beers in America. Careful though, very different in a bottle.

There’s really two different Moose Drools: the excellent tap and the ordinary bottle. The taste combines a sweet molasses (unusual for a brown ale, really) with a decent hop flavor. Highly recommended on tap; less so in the bottle.

On Tap. At The Hub. Downtown Tucson AZ. Just before seeing the Dweezle Zappa Show! O what a find this was! Moose Drool on tap! Thick brown pour with a nice head. Brown nutty goodness with a nice zesty spice from within. Roasted dark malt with smokey barly on the palet! Yumm

Yet another dark ale with a weird name. It’s true to tradition in another way: excellent taste. There’s a lot going on here. Varying types of sweetness from the numerous malts and a complex, spicy flavor coming from the hops. Yet, the brew is far from overwhelming. Better yet, it makes for a great session beer. Not the best brown ale in the world, but its good reputation is very well deserved.
