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.

Toasted, nutty malt, with caramel and light floral hops form the aroma. There's a hint of chocolate and an almost smoky character. Flavor is herbal, smoky, nutty, with a hint of fruity specialty malt character and cola. The finish is dry and a touch bitter. A fairly even heel brew without any stand-out characteristics. The smoky notes are unexpected.

From a bottle into a New Belgium globe
A: rich brown with a ruby tinge around the edges, 1" head that subsides into a film
S: A little sweet and very earthy/malty, some light nutty notes blended in there, and a faint whiff of chocolate.
T: follows the nose...a little caramel sweetness but balanced; the end is nice, with some light earthy and nutty notes that stick with you.
M: Pretty soft, would say creamy except its a little too thin

Starts with a malty nose with more lightly roasted grains than chocolate with a hint of sweetness. Pours brilliant chestnut brown with a 1" fluffy light tan head that dissipates to a thick film. The palate starts between caramel and chocolate over light roasted nuts moving more to chocolate then a hint of coffee before finishing with a lingering nutty chocolate finish. Very creamy with very fine soft carbonation with a medium body. Everything is very nicely balanced with out a trace of harshness. There are just enough hops on the finish to balance the malty sweetness of the beer.
