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.

Dogbrick (11641) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. Pours dark brown with a medium and foamy light tan head that has decent retention. Patches of lace on the glass. Light hazelnut and malt aroma. Medium, smooth body with a nutty character. Light floral hops and malt are present as well. The finish is smooth and nutty with touches of chocolate in the aftertaste. Slightly above average all around.

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.

3fourths (9150) - 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.

GABF 2009, darker brown pour, roasty with somewhat tart sweetness. Lighter bodied with some bitterness. Pretty sure this won a medal here.

Pretty undrinkable. Was this a brown? It tasted like the stout. Milky and little flavor. Not much to like here. On tap at brewpub.

Braudog (6379) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2005
This is a ruby-brown. Bitter nut flavors, chestnut, tingly bittered with a sharp finish. Can see why itís won some medals, dead on for style. Pretty robust on the brown ale spectrum.
