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.

A: Poured agressively into a standard pint glass it generated a large 2 or 3 finger head with larger kahki colored chunky bubbles. Dark brown in color with ruby red highlights and clear apperance.

S: Light milk chocolate aroma. Nutty toffey and dark caramel malts. very complex but distinct. No hop aroma detected.

T: Cocoa, nutty, and caramel malt flavors with some residual malt sweetness. Yet a moderate pine bitterness to hold the malts and keeping them in check.

M: Carbonation is on the lower side but with moderate body. no astringancy.

O: This was probably the first craft beer I tried that turned me onto craft beer exclusivly. A flavorful, malt forward, brown ale that doesn't get boring and can be drank in quantity. Cheers!

This comes close to being the optimum presentation of my favorite style of beer. So I must admit that I am biased at every swallow. Nice nutty sweet malt flavors and enough hops to be noticeable. By the way, the first time I had this beer, a friend bought for me, so again, I'm biased. Free beer is always my favorite.

Some reviewers will take off points because this beer has little unique qualities to make it stand out. In my beer book, unique experience is not the trump card. A drink that makes me smile and say, "This is what beer is supposed to be!" wins the game every day.
