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.

    Appearance- Clear dark brown with a fingers worth of quickly disappearing head. Very light amount of lacing.

    Smell- Nutty aroma with a hint of chocolate and caramel.

    Taste- Big nutty flavor with notes of chocolate and roasted malt. Just the faintest hint of hop bitterness at the finish.

    Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with an average amount of carbonation. Smooth and slightly creamy.

    Overall- Pretty good beer. Not the best but definitely worth trying.

    This one’s fast becoming one of my favorite go-to brown ales!! Sporting a thin creamy head (1 to 1.5 finger in thickness) and a deep brown mahogany color body. Hints of coffee and chocolate scented with notes of honey and warm butter! This is one fine smooth drinking beer. It’s fine by itself but a fine steak or fall-off-the-bone rack of ribs really compliments this brew very well!

    Pours a nice brown color with a good head. Has an aroma of spice and could detect maybe a caramel scent. Had a little more hop taste than i expected and left me with a slight after taste. Overall a nice brown ale.

    A very good beer excellent balance of malts and hops. Very drinkable beer had this at the Satisfied Frog in Phoenix, AZ. Unfortunately, the frog was out of the Chili Beer. Imagine ordering Moose Drool. Talk about havin a little bit of guts. Though in this case the drinker will be rewarded with a very good beer.

    Unfortunately I cannot get too excited about this beer. Too trendy tasting, and who puts chocolate in beer? Really? You've got to be kidding. Not an enjoyable beer for me.
