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.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Served slightly chilled.

A) A dark brown with a high gloss look, like varnished wood. Nice two finger head, that was tan in color. Nice retention, and lacing.

S) The aroma is light roast and a bit nutty. A little sweeter as it warms. Decent...

T) Follows the nose pretty well, but I'm bumping the score up a notch, because I enjoyed the balance. This has some nice earthy hops character that blends well with the toasted malt and nutty flavors. Nice aftertaste too...

M) Medium to lighter medium body. Nice amount of carbonation. This one has a feel that is fairly soft and smooth. Good clean finish.

O) Definitely a solid brown ale. If you enjoy this style of beer, you should give this a try. Glad to recommend.

Best by 9/18/12.

Pours a clear super dark crimson brown with a 1 inch foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, vanilla bean, and some nutty aromas. Taste is of toasted malt, toasted nuts, and vanilla bean on the finish. There is a mild roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel but it's a bit thin body wise. Overall, this is a good brown ale with some nice flavors but I just wish the body was beefed up a bit.
