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.

Above average selection for a former Great American Beer Festival winner. One of the better brown ales you’ll find in the area, and a good pick once there. NIce dark-brown color and decent odor, the flavor is better the more you drink.

3fourths (7861) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Deep burgundy and brown color. Dark tan head... sweet plum and grapes with a caramel malt hint in the nose. Sweet and sticky, with plums, cherries and sweet sugar flavors, not bad for the style at all.

aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2003
A dark brown beer that pours with a rich tan head, which displays good retention. It leaves a nice lace on the glass, as well. Very sweet, nutty aroma. The aroma is also very strong with malt sweetness, followed by some great nut flavors, mostly hazelnut. The mouthfeel is full as well, but not a rich and smooth as many brown ales.

Mildly hoppy aroma with some sweetness. Malt flavor is mostly chocolate with some crystal sweetness. Finish is decently satisfying.

The brown ale that originally got me into drinking brown ales. I’ve had better since, but this one is still a good one. Not too heavy, not too hoppy, with surprising richness and flavor complexity. A little heavier, in retrospect, than a brown ale maybe should be, but a good and unique beer that deserves a couple of tastings.

Deep brown color. Little head. Mild nose. Good nut layers in the begining. Surprisingly good depth.

argo0 (11328) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 22, 2002
Brown red with nice creamy off-white head. Sweet caramel aroma. Fairly sweet, moderately caramel. Very smooth, easy-drinking ale. Nice beer for what it is.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2002
If I remender this was entered as a brown porter in the GABF, and it does fit the style very well. Walnut color with a light head. Aroma of dark malts and chocolate. Chocolate and roasted malts in this flavor with a schwartz beer finish. Better than most advertised brown porters.

This was like no other brown ale i have tried. It was,roasted smokey, chocolatey and coffe like...almost to that of a porter. The appearance was that of brown ale though. Not quite sure if I really dig this brewery of not.
