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%.

12 oz bottle. Poured out a very nice dark ruby/brown. A great head with a lot of staying power. Reminds me initially of a porter. The flavor is very uinque, sweet, chocolatey, but just enough hop bite to keep it balanced. This is a beer I could drink all night if I had to...or even if I didnt.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 Despite the name, this is actually a pretty decent beer. A small bit of northwestern hops in the nose and a nice sweet malty flavor. Tasted like a Fat Tire with amped up flavor/aroma. Very nice.

From a 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with no freshness date. Made a decent appearance, poured a hazy red hued brown with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, minimal amount of sticking, moderate carbonation. Had a sweet malty nose, caramelized and toasty. A lightly crisp and smooth light medium bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. Chocolate and cocoa powdery with toasted grainy taste followed by a leafy hoppiness, then a little fruitiness and a dryish malty finish. A nice English Brown Ale from Big Sky, tasty and quaffable.

eaglefan538 (3033) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 5, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2007 Poured as dark brown as many a porter. Head was a nice tan covering that lasted the entire drink with full lacing around the glass after each tilt and sip. The aroma was nutty, chocolate, with some hops. The flavor was decent, nuts emerging from low at fridge temps, but increasing with temperature. The drink was somewhat porter-like: chocolate and some coffee, roasted malts, with a hop finish. Upon warming, this beer improved. First tasting the mouthfeel seemed more creamy (Aug 05), but more recently (June 06) seemed too watery. The chocolates and coffee in the finish were a nice touch with the hops playing a nicely balancing background role. Re-rate, 1/07, draft in Flagstaff: Mouthfeel remained thin and watery, and the hops were still not at the level I remember from my first tasting. A nice balance of malt and hops, though, this time the smoke, char, and ash flavors were stronger and balanced out a coffee-choco malt base. The ash/smoke flavors reminded me of the way DFH plays on the dual style Indian Brown, and I like this non-peaty approach much better. A unique brown ale, not rich enough in flavor to warrant a higher rating, a little overcarbonated at this thin of a body, but the flavors meld together quite well, and it doesnt run away malty sweet or thick. Re-rate, 11/07, draft: This one definitely approaches more of a porter than a brown ale, enjoyable either way, a solid brew from a style that doesnt normally excite me, nice stuff, although not outstanding.

Bottle. 16 oz aluminum. Deep maroon on the pour with a tan head. Fruit and roasted java on the nose. Iced espresso with some sweetness. Thought this was pretty good and Im not a brown aficionado. The roasted malts, sweet caramel and sprinkle of sweetness made this beer quite enjoyable. A brown ale for those who typically may not love that style. Thanks to wolfs for the bottle.

Enniskillen (2046) - Salinas, California, USA - MAY 27, 2006
Have passed this buy many a time, but finally decided to try it. Aroma is caramel, roasted malts, and some butterscotch. Body is a nice ruby brown hue, with a thin dissapating head. Taste is very caramel oriented, slightly watery, mildly bland.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Pours a dark brown even for a brown ale and a thin short lived head. Aroma is a bit bland, but has some light nuttiness and light roast. Caramel sweetness, toffee, and nuts in the flavor but again- it is slightly weak overall. Light herbal and bitter finish. Pretty clean and easy to drink overall.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2006
Courtesy of Bck Dich <!-- P --> Very sweet malty aroma is breadier than many Browns and almost touches on the Malt aroma of a Malta pop. Brown with amber hues and a quickly diminishing tan head. Big chocolate/caramel/malt powder punch in the fore. Some fruity apple notes in the middle and a mildly dry nutty finish. I just had the Deschutes Brown Ale and along with this one it gives me hope that there are still very good Brown Ales being made today.

Bottle. I drink a metric ass ton of this beer. Pours a dark brown with garnet hues and an average sized creamy head. A nice clean boquet with aromas of ripe apple, pear, roasty malt, and English toffee. A nice smokey, nutty sweet flavor with very little bitterness at all. More toffee. Good body and mouthfeel, solid carbonation. I really love this beer.
