Brewed by:
Big Sky Brewing Company
Montana, United States
bigskybrew.com

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

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.

Been drinking this stuff on visits to Missoula for many years. It’s a slightly bitter and slightly chocolate beer that has a decent flavor and crispness to it. A bit thicker in feel, this one is a classic out here. Not the most complex but this was one of the first “craft” brews that I latched onto in the 90’s.

Brown color, thin white head. Malt backbone. Not a ton of flavor complexity. Creamy texture. Dry finish.

Had a bit of a sour (like buttermilk sour) aftertaste. Not something I'd purchase again.

Good brown ale. Pours a dense brown color with a medium size off white head. Decent retention and thin bands of lacing on the glass. Slightly sweet malty aroma with a little chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is about the same but with a little mild hoppiness that balances out the sweetness. Mouth feel is a bit light with mile sweetness balanced by a little hoppiness. I don't often order Brown Ale but this one is OK.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a trillium glass.

Look is a dark reddish brown with little to no head.

Aroma is a medicinal malt.

Taste is astringent.

Not to my taste.

I'm usually a fan of lighter, yeastier beers but this one was really surprising. I had it straight from a bottle and it had a really great caramel aroma, with a light nutty smell. The mouthfeel was smooth yet a bit bigger than most of my average beers, and it had a smooth flavor with more hints of nuts, a little sweet bitterness, and an enjoyable caramel aftertaste. I would buy this beer again and I'd recommend it. Cheers!
