I was quite harsh on my ratings for this brew for good reason - it tasted and smelled like carbonated vomit.
The appearance was beautiful, a dark, rich brown with a little light coming through.
Smell and taste though, as noted above, were worse than atrocious.
Mouthfeel was a little better, it was somewhat crisp.
Drinkability comes straight from taste, and based on my rating of the taste, don't even think about drinking this one.

I am all for people having their own likes and tastes... But this stuff is disgusting... Seriously, look at the name. Very bitter, chemical like taste. I know some will call it deep, complex, rich flavors... but it is really gross. I would sooner have a pint of just about anything except Old Rasputin then Moose Drool... Again, it is what the name implies...

Looks nice with good head retention and a pretty good lacing. Color isn't so much brown, but it is dark. Sweet and raosty smell made me think this would be a good brown ale, but not so. Taste is green beans(?), roastiness and slight chocolate malts. It's off-putting. Mouthfeel is bad, just not very good. Overall this scared me and I wouldn't have another.

A--Dark brown color that glows with a deep red hue when held to the light. Standard pour yielded almost 2 fingers of head that receded fairly quickly down to a centimeter and left some lacing on the glass
S--Caramel malty sweetness, bread, little bit of banana peel in the background. Actually, it kind of smells like a very weak hefe'
T--The taste here is rather unpleasant. Whatever flavors are here are overshadowed by a funky metallic and ashy taste that ruins too many beers. This bottle is well within its freshness period and was not subjected to harsh conditions. I think its just flat out a bad tasting beer.
M--Light bodied and slightly watery, but leaves a lingering metallic taste on the tongue
D--Drain pour for me. I will probably toss the remaining 3 bottles from my sampler pack too because I am never going to drink them and I don't want to give them to somebody and subject them to this poor beer.
EDIT: I tried another bottle of this and I got the same flavor, I am officially done with this beer. I suppose I may have gotten 2 bad bottles, but quality control is just as important as the product itself and something is wrong here

This beer started out looking good. Poured into a glass a 1+ inch head was formed leaving nice lacing about the glass. The smell was mild but present including a sweet aroma of nuts and chocolate. The taste was not nearly as impressive as the look, however, as the nutty aroma was replaced by a more burnt taste and bitterness. The mouthfeel was watery and had considerable carbonation. I probably should have just finished this beer while it was cold, but I let it warm a bit and that was my mistake. I then found this beer to reveal more of a tobacco taste and that was it for me. I finished about half of this beer and had to stop. To some this review may sound unfair of this beer, but I haven't had to pour a half a beer down the drain (voluntarily) in a long, long time. In the end, I found the name of this beer quite fitting. Thank goodness I only bought one to try it out and I hope the Big Sky IPA I bought at the same time saves my opinion of this brewer.
