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%.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown/garnet color. Dark tan head with some lacing. Aroma of toasted malt, nuts and tobacco. Caramel flavor that finishes sweet and slightly cloying. Very little hop presence in aroma. Some middle hops but not much bittnerness in finish, thus the sweetness in the finish.

ZiggyG (131) - Gladstone, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours dark brown and shows amber highlights when held up to the light. The head is short and off-white and is gone before you know it. The beer smells slightly of chocolate with biscuits, pretty faint aroma. The taste is pretty nondescript, not much to write home about. Some generic malts and a tiny bit of hops bite in the back of the palate. The mouth feel is pretty flat. Im not real impressed.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2012 Creamy beer with a hint of chocolate and caramel favors. Easy to drink, smooth palate due to the creamy texture. Very,pleasant malt with a tinge of hops but not too much.

jpfrog (130) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2002
This beer has a quickly disapearing head, however the slight browness and creamy texture is appealing. The reddish-brown coloring of the body is a plus and looks just right for a brown ale. It has a nice distinctness to it in taste, however there seems to be something missing about it. The aftertaste is sort of coffee like and doesnt sit with you for very long. However, the initial taste is pretty good. All in all, not a bad beer.

rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2005
Pours a dark brown with nice red tone beige foamy head that (unfortunately) dwindles to almost nothing. Mild, almost non-existant aroma (almost putting my face in the glass to smell anything). Flavor is good nutty/coffee like but unremarkable. Body is nice and creamy coating the palate in what flavor is available. Wife says "Thats not good."

On Tap at Taylors. Solid beer, with a catchy name, but not a top pick. Poors dark brown with a brownish pebbly head. very little hops, nice molasis flavor.

beerlovinman99 (124) - USA - JUL 9, 2002
Theres really two different Moose Drools: the excellent tap and the ordinary bottle. The taste combines a sweet molasses (unusual for a brown ale, really) with a decent hop flavor. Highly recommended on tap; less so in the bottle.

jeffs515 (123) - Ogden, Utah, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Aroma has a roasted malty, coffee, carmel scent. Very dark brownish red color clear with mild carbonation nice tan head that last awhile leaving some lacing. Taste of roasted malt with a coffee, chocolate flavor that leave a Carmel flavor on the tounge. Kind of a light brown ale was very thin. Not bad just missing some fullness.

StormCoat (123) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2010
Picked up a case of Moose Drool at South Bay Drugs and Liquor in San Diego, CA. Pours a dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma combines roasted, chocolatey notes with hints of vanilla and a healthy dose of molasses. Flavors are subtle, but very nice...molasses/brown sugar, nutty chocolate, raisins, and a bit of coffee-like aftertaste are all well-balanced, and wrapped up in a fairly light-bodied and refreshing beer. Overall, this is a really tasty and drinkable brown ale! Ill definitely drink it again.
