Mildly roasted, grainy, light chocolate aroma. Light chocolate, roasted malts, and caramel flavors. Watery mouthfeel and a bit thin. Decent. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Some sweet coffee aroma. Slightly roasty. The beer pours a nice dark brown with a velvetty white head. Flavor is chocolate malt. This is a very sweet brown ale. There is also a pretty yeasty element to this beer. It is very carbonate, medium bodied, and pretty easy to pound. markas101 (2499) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 8, 2007
33 cl bottle, Fargo. Dark brown color with red hues, sweet malty caramel aroma. Nice carbonation, smooth, sweet lingering finish. redlight (2325) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2007
Very malty, caramel/chocolate aroma. Pours very dark brown. Smooth and creamy, caramel, chocolate and vanilla, crisp hops, and the finish has hints of banana, with creamy caramel. Very nice. jatkabrewno58 (2) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAR 4, 2007 does not count
This is a beautiful looking and tasting brown ale that sets Big Sky brewing company apart from other brown ale brewers in the U.S. The flavor and color match the intense aroma that pleases the nasal cavities.
I personally love the beer and wish it was available in IN.

Moose Drool poured a very dark brown with ruby highlights wen held to the light. An inch and a half tan head with medium size bubbles. As they burst the head bacame very creamy. Shrunk down to just a top coat.
The smell is a little weak. It seems like a slight sourness and toffee. Not bad just weak.
Tastes pretty good. I can taste just a little sourness as well followed by some chocolate then a metallic flavor. Theres a little spiciness but I cant tell what it’s coming from.
Mouthfeel is a little thin. Somewhat watery. Not to bad but it’s there.
Drinkability is good. Moose Drool is a beer you can sit around and drink a few.

12 oz bottle: Medium brown color, crystal clear, with a medium sized creamy tan head. Aroma is slightly nutty, hint of brown sugar, creamy, with notes of vanilla and hazelnut, hint of cherry. Flavor is very ashy, burnt chocolate and malt, bit of oak and vanilla, with a balanced finish. rmussman (1701) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2007
This brew pours very nicely, with no head. Color is dark brown with a little cloudiness. Mouthfeel is very smooth and flavor is very nutty. I would compare it to Newcastle brown but with more distinct flavor. Saarlander (1920) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - FEB 27, 2007
A nice brown ale, there’s plenty of sweetness to it, Caramel, slight roastedness, nutty, but it is hopped well enough for me also, a solid brew, enjoyable.Thanks to Duane for the bottle! hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2007
bottle shared at volgons. Aroma seems a bit off on this one, taste is malty and lightly sweet, but lightly stale also. watery body.
