Moose Drool Brown AleMoose Drool Brown Ale

Brewed by:
Big Sky Brewing Company
Montana, United States

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.

For the common man, catching a glimpse of the elusive Moose is a rare and thrilling event. Though they move only slightly slower than their mammalian cousin the Sloth, these majestic beasts can be deadly if cornered. Here is some helpful advice if you ever find yourself a Moose.
The most important thing to have on your person is a six pack of Moose Drool Brown Ale. If confronted by an aggravated mother, or if a male mistakes you for a female, begin by chugging one Brown Ale. This will loosen your nerves. Throw the remaining 5 beers at the Moose as hard as possible, most likely missing on all but one or two shots. If this does not work and the Moose seems a little angry about the broken glass in its antlers, then fucking run.
The Moose Drool Brown Ale is an indispensable safety item and can be found at most grocery stores. It can be identified by its dark and deep ruby color that has a steadfast foam head. The smell gentle, reminiscent of young barley on a Spring's morning. The brew tastes much better than drool in reality, with subtle coffee, hoppy, and barley flavors that balance the palate nicely. I definite must for Moose huntin'.

Poured from a can in Albuquerque NM

A: Poured a beautiful chocolate brown with light tan head. very inviting.

S: Rich malt aromas, from caramel to many varieties of toasted malts. No hop character (a good thing). Chocolate aroma is pronounced as well.

T: Great flavor to this. At 5.3 it is a perfect balance of sweetness and richness. Chocolate flavors are pronounced and nearly no bitterness is present. A great brown ale flavor.

M: Rich, velvety, good carbonation level. This one is a winner.

O: One of my favorite brown ales for sure. Give this one a shot if you have not
