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.

A- Poured a chestnut color with a small white head

S- Chocolate, burnt caramel/brown sugar, hazelnut

T- Overall, I really like this brown ale. It's definitely a malt bomb but there is a little hop finish to it as well. You can taste chocolate but its more like chocolate syrup, the kind that's in the plastic bottle and you squeeze into a glass of milk. It also has a slight nutty finish to it as well. It's pretty refreshing and has a light body so this would be a good beer to drink at the end of a long hot summer day.

Food Pairing- Sweet and salty candied nuts (Almonds, Cashews, Pecans).

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.
