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.

Very chocolatey. Malty. Little hop presence. Smooth - very good. That was my beer festival review - here is an updated tasting, nothing changed, but more info: Nice deep brown color with a red tint. Slight chocolate and bread aroma - almost like cookies! Sweetish flavor with a mild grassy hop bite. Well balanced. Medium mouthfeel. Bittersweet finish.

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.

Deep mahogany. Intensely flavored and full-bodied. Smoky and strong. Tingly mouthfeel only adds to its fullness. Rich, chocolatey, & burnt. Rather big beer.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2003 Likely the best beer from 75th Street. Good balance, not too malty or bitter for the style. Malt flavors are tasty. Especially (and I could make up a new rating for this) good when brewed as a cask-conditioned ale.

Well, I said I could make up a new rating for the cask Brown, so here it is!
Bready, lightly cookieish aroma. Deep red-brown color, a bit darker than the standard version. Tan head, mostly lasting and very creamy, nice lacing as well. Flavor profile is comprised of light toffee sweetness and bready, grainy malt flavors. Finish is lightly sweet and very malty, along with the light caramel aftertaste, which puzzlingly factors in a faint earthiness, almost cellar-like. A scant bitterness here as well, almost floral. Served for all intents at room temperature and with a smoothness on the palate that can only come from cask conditioning. An exercise in maltiness.

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.

on tap pour appears to be nitro. Very thick almost stout-like appearance. Aroma is of roasted malt and a little coffee. Very smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is of roasty malt, a little chocolate and some spicy hops.

Tap @ 75th Street. Very dark brown. Aroma of nutty malt. some chocolate, nice toasted grains. Flavor has a very nice toasted grain a bit of caramel. Earthy hop. Light bitterness.

Braudog (5748) - Hampton, Virginia, 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.
