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.

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.

Enjoyed at Baker Street Pub and Grill in Tulsa, OK on tap.

I've had this in bottle before and thought it was so-so, but this is something else all together.

Fantastic toasty rich aroma. Deep dark brown with a light tan head that lingers (lots of Belgian lace). No haziness.

Flavor is a revelation of all beer can be. Rich and toasty. Dry but with some residual sweetness. I can pick up molasses, brown sugar, dark chocolate and pumpernickel. Nice rich aftertaste. Sweet yet dry (yes, I know that is contradictory). Just a little bit of hop bite at first with more as it warms up.

Mouthfeel is crisp with a high amount of carbonation. I think I would like it just a tad bit smoother, but the crispness is nice for a change.

Overall, this is an amazingly good dark brown ale.

Have enjoyed this many times on trips to Montana, but never stopped to review
A - a clear deep mahogany, two fingers of creamy tan head retained nicely
S - some molasses and bready malt, a significant adjunct like smell, and some brown sugar
T - brown sugar and light coffee, light leafy hops, and a slight metallic
M - medium body and nicely creamy, smooth and finishes sweet and just a little bitter
O - not an outstanding brown ale, but a solid offering worthy of a regular pint at the pub or a 6 pack now and again
