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.

pretty average brown ale here. pours a semitransparent weak coffee color with a minimal cream head. smells like sweet chocolate and caramel malt, even a touch of brown sugar. flavor is sweet and roasty, but lacking much of the complexity that i have come to appreciate in this style. feel is a bit watered down, and the sweetness hangs around in the mouth long after the swallow. overall a decent beer, but nothing special. sessionable but standard.

JD really pulled out everything tonight. Wel except that Dreadnaught. pour is a light brown with a small tight white head. Smell is nice and sweet. It smells balanced and drinkable. About what I want in a brown.

The taste is so good. Theres a nice balance that is lost in the big beers of the day. Its got this smooth characteristic that I associate with Diacteyl, but the buttery flavor is absent. Light roasty characteristic.

Basically, smooth, slightly sweet, and insanely drinkable.

A - Two fingers worth of rich tan colored fluffy head... The color is a medium caramel brown... Brisk carbonation throughout... Warm and inviting...

S - Semi sweet throughout... Toffee... Caramel... Brown sugar... Some roasted barley... Warm and inviting...

T - Caramel... Toffee... Some dark malts shine through... A bit nutty... Some faint buttery notes as well...

M - Medium boded... A bit dense... Ultra smooth... Sleek... Light carbonation dances on the tongue... A bit of lushness...

D - This is a very nice high quality American Brown Ale... An excellent representation of the style... Lots of good things going on in all facets... Highly sessionable and impressively quaffable... If I had access to this on a regular basis, this would be a solid go-to standby in my beer fridge on a rather regular basis...
