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.

Aroma: Dark malts, worty, alcohol, lots of sugar. A bit of spice and mild bitterness. What is that distinct smell of a brown ale?

Appearance: Dark amber brown, high clarity can be seen when held up to light. Pours a tall medium brown head. Good lacing.

Flavor: Very worty. Lots of malt sweetness. Super smooth. Aftertaste of toffee and root beer. There's that taste again, a bit yeasty in the taste. A hint of smokiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body. NO carbonation. Very oily.

Overall: Very smooth and pleasant. Rather bold compared to the average brown ale. Very sweet malt flavor. Very drinkable.

Back in 2009 at a dark diner in Montana, remember it a bit 'hopsy" , i don't have much of a nose for phenol like things, it was not thin, it had some substance, adequate head. I was attracted to the name, yes, i would try it again, i prefer dark beer/ale , cheers

Poured 12oz bottle into pint glass.

Moose Drool pours a dark shade of brown. Thin head lingers. It's definitely similar to other Brown Ales I've had. Good flavor, not too overwhelming. I would recommend this beer if you like other Brown Ales. I would drink this one again.
