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%.

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.

Super good brown ale. Probably my favorite and way better than Newcastle in my opinion. Tastes like chocolate and toasty malts. Very drinkable, like almost dangerous. Really good stuff, and even better on tap!

Had this on tap at the Clark St. Ale House in Chicago. A dark reddish brown beer with little head. The smell is one of pure ecstasy. Sweet smell of caramel with a hint of chocolate. Tastle is a little less than full, but is one that you want to savor. Leaves a semi-bitter after taste. A little lacing as you drink it. I am always sad to see the bottom of my glass when drinking this one. By far my favorite beer.

Nice dark beer that drinks lighter than a stout but has lots of flavor. Recommend if you want substance, taste and smell but not the extremely pronounced body.

The name alone drew me in. I first had MD in Co, finally found it here in SD. I love it with some grilled chicken and nice deep green veggies.

A really nice dark brown ale. Pours dark brown with a pale head. The taste is rich and smooth, not as bitter as some dark ales. Just as good cold as room temperature.

Dark semi sweet malts trending to caramel. Subtle hops. Substancial brew pairing with barbeque.

Great brown ale with a creamy texture. A malty beer but not too sweet. The aroma has just a hint of spice. drawback is you can only get it in Oklahoma in a bottle, It is much better out of the keg/ or at the brewery in which I would rate it a 4.8

A brown,sweet ale that is very sweet. Chocolate is the dominate aroma. The mouthfeel is thick and chewy. The head is thin and lacy. As someone mentioned, this ale is akin to drinking a brownie.

This is a very drinkable beer! Rich redish-brown color with a tan head. Light to medium body mouth feel with a mild roasty, malty taste and a nice bitter finish. Not overpowering or filling - could be a "sessions" contender. I like this better than Brooklyn's and Newcastle's brown ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
