Notes/Commercial Description:
It's chocolate brown in color with a creamy texture. A malty beer with just enough hop presence to keep it from being too sweet. The aroma mostly comes from the malt with a hint of spice added by the hops. Moose Drool is brewed with pale, caramel, chocolate, and whole black malts; and Kent Goldings, Liberty, and Willamette hops.

Can't wait to taste what moose drool tastes like. *gaffawing*

Serving Style : 12 oz bottle/serving glass for appearance

Appearance (4.25) : Shimmering cranberry red color with a tall, thick three fingered head. Gorgeous. By the end of the review the lacing has made three rings around the glass.

Smell (5) : Strong, stark, spicy black licorice. Muah! Chocolate, coffee, hazelnut. Spicy butterscotch. Ginger. This is like the king of smells right here.

Taste (4.5) : I could "drool" it out the sides of my mouth. Wonderful, full bodied hazelnut brown ale flavor that has notes of chocolate, ginger spice, Kenyan coffee, and ends with that wonderful, dreamy yet spicy black licorice flavor. Rich and malty. Oh, this beer is awesome. This is like, making me want to cry awesome. The burps taste like black licorice. Fan-freaking-tastic!

Mouthfeel (4.5) : Buttery smooth, gorgeous finish. The bubbles are subdued and add a subtle pop and sharpness to the licorice flavors but by far and by large it is a smooth, creamy, buttery ale. I have no complaints.

Overall (4.62) : If you can't tell already, this beer is making me glow with enthusiasm. There's not much more to say other than if you haven't tried this glorious brew yet you need to ASAP. Unless you hate black licorice or brown ales all together, then you may not like it. Send it to me!
