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.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, coded bottle date. This pour a clear dark brown with a large tan head which has okay retention and doesn't leave a lacing. The smells are of a little nutty toffee caramel. The feel is medium to light. The taste is okay, a little caramel and toffee and perhaps coffee, but something is missing.

Appearance poured a ruddy chestnut brown kind of hazy with one finger of light tan foam on top. good lacing.

Aroma- Coffe, carmel, earthy Molasses. Hops are subdued but piney not floral.

taste-grahm cracker fresh bread. i want this to be darker and maltier. its Husky,grainy like a weak tea.

Mouthfeel- falls apart on the mouth feel. its thin. I want more booze and more viscosity.

Overall- I thought I remember this beer being much "bigger". It has good flavor but no sustain. I would have more of these because they are so light. It could be my new brown ale session beer, if i was looking for one.

Appearance - Pours a very dark brown color with a half inch thick, creamy light-brown head. Leaves behind a very nice lacing.

Smell - Smells delicious.. Dark malts, caramel, and chocolate. Simple but this is my kind of brown ale.

Taste - Matches the aroma.. The malts taste slightly roasted and there's a feint coffee flavor. There is also a subtle sweetness throughout. It's very smooth overall.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied but the carbonation creates a creamy texture.

Overall - A very easy to drink brown ale.

My absolute favorite ABA. The clarity is absolutely impressive with a deep amber; reds and browns, copper when held to the light. The aroma is of raisins, dark toasty malts, some baking chocolate. Taste is complex and appealing; sweet coffee, unsweetened dark chocolate, roasted malt, no bitterness. Mouthfeel is thin side of medium. Carbonation is light, more so than a newcastle but only slightly. One of the best ABAs around.

Typical brown ale. I'm not a fan of brown ale otherwise this would be an above average beer. Taste has depth to it with a caramel taste and a chocolate malt finish. One of the better brown ales I have had. Would not stock my fridge with it because of my own taste in beers but good to have some around for company that does.

Appearance- From a heavy growler pour there is considerable tan pebbly heady, dark red brown with root beer like appearance and carbonation

Smell- slight caramel and light toffee overtones, hops seem of the noble variety aroma

Taste- caramel on the front and toasted on the rear, light roast bitterness on the finish. Chocolate notes are sweet yet balanced.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, slightly watery feel

Overall- Gotta love the Moosie, this is the beer that started me on crafts. Best enjoyed around the campfire.
