COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unmistakably malty, Possum Trot draws its inspiration from the classic brown ales of England. This unique style, given Kansas City's original nickname, combines a variety of barley to produce a toasty, nutty malt flavor with a slight hop bitterness in the finish for balance. Gold Medal Winner at the 1997 Great American Beer Festival. Bronze Medal Winner at the 1998 International World Beer Cup.

Very dark brown color. Copious foam head. Light malt aroma. Medium molasses, nutty malt flavor. Smooth body. Nutty finish. Somewhat lighter on the palate that the maltiest of browns. Light, soapy lace. Well made, balanced and easy. The body is somewhat thin as browns go.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear with a tab head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a slight nuttiness with sweet dark grains and bread backing. Flavor is similar with a bread and nuts with a sweet grain backing.

Tap pours a dark reddish brown with cream colored head. Nice earthy barley aroma with light chocolate roasted notes. The flavor is rich with a nice roasted grain profile while being light and very approachable. A good bit of nuttiness with light bittersweet chocolate, some dark fruits, a funky cherry rhubarb, and a solid bit of drying earthy lightly herbal hops round it. The hops are nice not over their bounds for style but stretching the norm. Nice sparkling carbonation brightens the sense near creamy brew. Would like to try on nitro.

Tap. Pours a dark ruby red color. Tan colored head. Aroma is malty, chocolatey and gentle roast. Flavor is roasty, perhaps a bit nutty, malty. Dry finish but not too bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

coolpop (1372) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Draft at brewpub. Poured brown with a medium-sized, creamy tan head. Aroma was malty, light roast, slightly resinous hops. Flavor was moderately malty, some nuttiness, faint chocolate. Mouthfeel was thin, a bit astringent, sort of fizzy. So-so brown ale.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep brown color with white head. Roasted, nutty, malty, toffee flavors. Pretty good brown, my favorite beer of their main beers.

Draught @ Brewpub: This one poured a fairly dark brown color. Mine had almost no head on it and what was there left no lacing. There is a nice nose to it. Faint chocolate and nutty notes. Maybe some floral hops. The taste is good. There is a faint nuttiness to it, as well as some chocolate. Medium malt body. Decent and an easy drinker.
