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.

Served from the can into a nonic pint glass

A- Poured a dark brown with red hues shining through the edges of the glass. Big soapy head that dissipated quickly the left some splashy lace

S- Big brown sugar, toffee, and chocolate notes. Some big breadiness and caramel notes as well. Definitely one of the more aromatic beers for the style

T- Really nice strong brown sugar and toffee flavors, nice chocolate notes, lots of breadiness and caramel flavors. There is a very nice richness and sweetness to this beer. There is also a little bit of a Dr. Pepper type taste on the finish.

M- Pretty light bodied, goes down like water, and a little watery on the finish

O- A highly drinkable brown ale and one of the better ones I have ever had. The flavors are strong and there is quite a bit of complexity.

Very dark brown colour with nice lace. Smells with ginger, cloves and molasses. The smell seemed to blossom as it warmed in the glass, very enjoyable. Taste is rich toasty malts and chocolate with a hint of warmth to it and a smooth finish. It is a medium mouth feel which is perfect for this style. Overall its a very enjoyable flavourful beer.
