Availability: Year-round

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.

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
