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.

Had this from the cask this evening. Wispy, light tan head with a dark brown color witih out much carbonation. The aroma was of malt and chocolate. A significant malt flavor - chocolate too - and slight hop. It was kind of light...and by light I mean watery.

I had this both on cask and off the tap. The body was dark brown with some garnet at the edges. There was a light yellow and khaki colored head. The aroma was caramel with some milk chocolate. The taste was light caramel with some light tobacco in the finish. There was a hint of chocolate. This was smooth and easy to drink.

Decent brown ale, hearty with alot of body for the style. Has alot of rich chocolate and caramel maltiness, with just a hint of hoppy biterness coming through in the finish.

what is with this raisin-mincemeat pie flavor that completely ruins this brown ale?! While this would be an interesting twist if offered as a x-mas time festive ale, it is not what i’m looking for in a brown ale year-round. the brewer says i may be tasting the fuggles hops, i don’t know, but i’ll try it again next december whilst standing under the mistle toe.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - APR 3, 2006
Sampled on draft at 75th Street in KC. Pours dark brown with a lasting, light tan head and remarkable lacing. An attractive pour. A mild aroma with light floral notes. The flavor is full of chocolate malt goodness. Balanced with a medium body. Excellent ale.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Rich milk chocolate and tons af caramel in both nose and flavor. Little hop chatacter at all. Full bodied. Very filling. I would love to have another, but the one that I drank made me just too damn full.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2005
This is a ruby-brown. Bitter nut flavors, chestnut, tingly bittered with a sharp finish. Can see why it’s won some medals, dead on for style. Pretty robust on the brown ale spectrum.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 6, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. 22 IBU. Aroma of nutella! Hazelnut flavor and a nutty aroma. Copper brown in color. Maybe a residual almond flavor? Nice hop content with good bitterness balancing the malt. I don’t see this in too many brown ales.

Cask version. It was dark brown with a big (2") off white, billowy head. Nice aroma, taste was choclate malt and nutty. There was a decent mouthfell even without the carbonation. This was 100x better than the Irish Red I had out of the cask the last time. Didn’t have my notebook with, so I will have to re-rate.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2005 First visit to 75th street brewery. Tried the brown ale. Very nice, not as good as other browns but solid. Will definitely go back and try others of this company’s brews.
