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: DEC 19, 2009 Went to school in Missoula, Montana, home of Big Sky Brewing. I had this beer on numerous occasions and will say it is a hometown favorite. The Drool is dark brown ale, with a hint of nuts, caramel, and chocolate. It has a smooth texture. I agree with some other posts in the importance of labels, names, and logos and this beer has done a good job.

Nice and dark, hits all the right notes for the style with a nice smooth/silky body. Finish is a little weak, I expected something more at the end. Otherwise though, it’s an enjoyable drink with a great name/label, and yes, that does count for something.

Certainly not terrible, with good porter or stout like hints; it seemed dark for a brown ale. Nice nose, and it goes down easy. Plus, you’ve gotta love the drooling moose image on the label.

Thanks to Bück Dich for the unsolicited offering. Dark red-brown body with a sudsy beige head that receded to a persistent film. Aroma is surprisingly fruity and distinct with a suggestion of toffee. Well-caramelized, malty flavor with an element of chocolate and some light roast. A medium sweet and distinctly flavored brown ale with an enjoyable malt character.

Bottled. Pours a clear brown with a lacy off-white head. The aroma isn’t pronounced, but it shows lightly floral/citrus with some sweet malty notes behind the hops. Light-bodied with a just a dash of cream in the mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. The taste is roasty chocolate/caramel/malt/nuts with a dry nutty finish that includes a minor spice contribution from the hops. Absolutely sessionable.

12oz bottle: Surprisingly good brown ale here, thick lightly brown head and deep dark body. Plenty of thickness in the aroma and flavor departments, lots of roasted malty chocolatey goodness. A very tasty brown ale that I would drink more than regularly if given the chance.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 Nicely balanced, nutty, roasty, not over done. Exceptional flavor and mouth feel. Creamy yet not too sweet and not sticky. I didn’t think I like this style much but this ale is very good. On tap at Laurel Tavern in Madison WI

this beer drinks like a meal, in a good way...a hearty, thick brown ale that goes down easy like a Guinness...I wish you could find it easier (at all?) in the Midwest

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 A good brown ale. Roasty and nutty with a little bit of chocolate and caramel sweetness and some hops to balance it out.
