BEER INFO

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

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

Availability: Year-round

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.

The label is great and you want to try it. But, and I do not say this about beer too often - this tasted absolutely horrid. I have NEVER tasted a beer like this before, and I try a LOT of beer. I guess I'm in the minority, but I cannot give it a good rating.

I was quite harsh on my ratings for this brew for good reason - it tasted and smelled like carbonated vomit.

The appearance was beautiful, a dark, rich brown with a little light coming through.

Smell and taste though, as noted above, were worse than atrocious.

Mouthfeel was a little better, it was somewhat crisp.

Drinkability comes straight from taste, and based on my rating of the taste, don't even think about drinking this one.

I am all for people having their own likes and tastes... But this stuff is disgusting... Seriously, look at the name. Very bitter, chemical like taste. I know some will call it deep, complex, rich flavors... but it is really gross. I would sooner have a pint of just about anything except Old Rasputin then Moose Drool... Again, it is what the name implies...

This was my 2nd brown ale as well as my last. Low score on taste is probably not an accurate reflection just an opinion. Brown ales are not my cup of tea.
