Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: kbub6f on 12-16-2001

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've enjoyed Moose Drool in several incarnations, in several settings from Yellowstone to Whitefish to my basement. This sampling is out of a can ($6 for a sixer) picked up on our way home from Montana. Moose Drool pours nicely - a burst of tawny head that gradually disappears. It is a rich ruby color (I think - I am color blind after all). The nose is chocolate and caramel, the taste full of chocolate and happiness. This beer is creamy, smooth and generally delicious.

I was mauled by a moose, but at the last minute he drooled into my mouth. I was fine with it from then on

Pours a translucent chestnut color with a modest head of khaki foam that disappears in short order. Mild aroma smells of caramel and grassy hops with a slight nutty character as well.

The nuttiness is more pronounced in the taste, which also includes a big kick of grain husk toward the middle and end. Grassy hops lend balance but overstay their welcome in the finish. Traces of milk chocolate manifest with a little warming. Light body and crisp carbonation create a semi-creamy mouthfeel that comes off a bit thin for my liking.

Overall, this is a straightforward and drinkable brown ale, albeit lacking in nuance and complexity. I’m hardly a brown ale connoisseur though, so take this review with a grain of salt.

Dark brown , smells malty with roasted nut . Coffee taste , maybe a little chocolate. Not as rich as a stout though. Very tasty
