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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

From a twelve ounce bottle into a snifter.

Beautiful creamy, frothy oatmeal-colored head. Brown and amber body with good clarity against light. 4.5

Heavy caramel aroma with a touch of coffee. Light floral hops. 4

Toasted caramel, bread heavy, floral hops, sweet caramel finish. Good mix of flavors, but nothing too explosive. 3.5

Body is lighter than I'd like, but there's a nice creamy mouthfeel. A sprinkling of hop bitterness on the finish dries this out a bit. Touches of sweetness at times, but it's not cloying in the least. 3.5

This brew is very much like a number of English brews I'm familiar with. It seems pretty true to style in that sense. It makes for a good beer, but certainly one of subtleties and light flavor and aroma. 3.5

Appearance: vigorous carbonation and a rich Amber brown really stand nicely with the regal beast on the bottle

Smell: spicy almost Christmas notes which clear the nostrils. Spicy with a hint of sweetness

Taste: smooth creamy and sweet with a spicy bight holding out for the end a good beer for November after a successful hunt

Mouthfeel: a bit disappointing. For the taste it could be a bit richer and fuller

Overall: I just told my wife I would buy this buy the six pack

This brown ale does not dissapoint, pours a deep brown ruby red colour with a small frosty off white head. The aroma included dark chocolate and spice with hints of toffee nut lashed throughout.
The taste is very light for a brown ale, low to medium levels of carbonation made moosedrool a real pleasure to drink. The flavours comprise of chocolate malts that simmer down to a roasted peanut & toffee brittle aftertaste. Overall a fantastic easy drinking beer for 5.1%
