Bit of a funky aroma upon pouring. a little too sweet for my liking - but Im sure if it was winter in Montana I would want something chewy like this.

Malt and caramel aromas. Very dark orange with a head that lasts. More malt and caramel in the taste. Seems like an English strong without being ruined by alcohol flavors.

12oz. bottle. Dark amber brown color with a small light tan head. Caramel, toffee, and herbal hop aromatics. Smooth caramel flavors with some raisin. Slight bitter vegetal hop component in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium, rather smooth.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 Thank to Degarth. Pours a dark amber almost brown. Bigtime crystal malt in this one, very sweet caramel and brown sugar come through, followed big by citrusy hops, not bad, but also not very christmas like, good beer just not really my style, too hoppy.

Felt thin, then again for as cheap as this was I didnt expect it to bee to thick or pack too much of a buzz. Good but not outstanding. Ive heard so much about Moose Drool that I figured Id try a single of this since it was available at Blue Max but I cant see myself trying any Big Sky again since they tend to offer only middle-of-the-road stuff.

Hoppy aroma backed by caramelized sugar, dough, and fresh malts. Sweet flavor. Pretty drinkable. Your swill drinking brother might like this.

Clear red??? Mine was cloudy brown, with small tan head. Good malt nose promises more than the brew delivers. Light sweet malt flavor with very mild hopping

Light Brown Coloring. Small Head. Noticably Sweet. Some Malt. Not a bad one from Big Sky

Bought this because it was on clearance at BevMo. Didnt smell like much, sort of chocalatey I guess. Flavor is of caramel, toffee maybe some chocaolate, and a sort of musty, earthy flavor. Not bad, gives a nice warmth to the belly.

Bottle from first batch into my local market. Pleasing clear red-amber color. The head is active, but quickly fades without much lacing. The foundation in this beer has a lot of potential, malt and hop-wise. It just needs more power for a winter brew. Complete this recipe, Big Sky--I double-dog dare ya.
