BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Big Sky Brewing Company
Montana, United States
bigskybrew.com

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

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.

A: The beer is clear dark reddish amber in color. It poured with a thin tan head that died down but left a patch of bubbles on the surface and a ring around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of dark malts and nuts in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of caramel and nutty malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and not filling but could use a stronger taste and smell.

poured from the bottle into a pint glass

A - Pours a deep brown with perfect clarity when held to a light.A few small bubbles meander to the dense, creamy, two-finger tan head. Head stays intact nearly to the bottom of the glass. Leaves behind nice big splotches of lacing on the bottom half of the glass.

S - Milk chocolate with hints of earthy hops and crystal malt. Unfortunately, this is not as strong in the glass.

T - A bit of milk chocolate upfront. Milk chocolate notes continue into the body of this beer, but it also picks up a substantial amount of earthy hop notes to balance things out. Pang of earthy hop flavor as the beer passes over the back of the tongue gives way to a slightly nutty chocolate finish.

M - Medium bodied and enough carbonation to make it exceptionally creamy. Well done.

Although I picked this up in Yellowstone last summer, it can actually be purchased at our local grocery here in New Mexico. This is an excellent brown ale all around with enough hops to back up the delicious chocolate malt notes. Simple and satisfying, this I would certainly pick this up again as an easy drinking session beer.

Thanks to my wife for bringing this one back from a business trip to the west coast.

A: Pours a medium brown to dark garnet red in color with some very light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall creamy beige head that reduces to some extremely thin patches and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate lacing is observed.

S: A very mild aroma to this beer, light smells of caramel and nuts.

T: Flavors of caramel as well as some darker malts with a slight amount of nuttiness.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to significant amounts of carbonation.

O: Extremely easy to drink and very sessionable - I could easily see myself knocking a few of these back in a single session.

This dark fellow really brings a nice cream colored foamy head to the party. Just a bit of lacing remains with the fizzy film that can't hide a nearly opaque brown ale. Nice bit sweet maltiness on the nose that compliments the taste of sweet yet bitter roasted malts. The hop presence only peeks in with the bitterness and perhaps a shot of earthiness. Finish is largely absent of much aftertaste, as the only real lingering impression is similar to toasted marshmallow. Very easy drinking and uncomplicated this is.
