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.

Upon opening some smoke comes out. Upon pouring, there is a three to four finger off white fluffy head. It retains pretty well but goes down pretty quick. It laces also. The color of the body is darker brown. You can see a few bubbles rise to the top. Looks nice.

Upon smelling you pick up hops and cocoa.

This has a pretty nice taste to it. It has a nice combination of hops, grain, and cocoa. The cocoa is a nice thing to pick up with everything else.

Its not too carbonated at all. Its smooth and drinkable.

Overall, not my favorite beer ever but its pretty good. If you like brown ales, give it a try. Not all that enthused I guess, but everyone has their kind of thing they want and enjoy.

Appearance: brown, medium head, and good lacing.

This is a nice brew. The chocolaty cocoa flavor is nice and well balanced.
