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. TrevorFloyd (309) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 22, 2006
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. Arnie (274) - Chicagoland, IL, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2006
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. whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2006
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. bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2006
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. chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 13, 2006
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 OHJoel (9) - BG, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2006 does not count
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 Kiapepito (110) - Port Angeles, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2006

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.
