Default Looking for something very malty

Anyone have any suggestions for a good malty beer? I'm trying to get an idea for my 3rd brew.

I have an Irish Red in bottles that is pretty tasty and I am going to be putting together a Kölsch this weekend. I want to get and Extra Pale Ale and an IPA going at some point as well, but for #3 I'm looking for something thick and malty.

My 1st 2 brews are Northern Brewer extract kits. I need to stick with extract at this point but don't necessarily need it to be a kit. Any ideas?

I found that Hobgoblin is very malty. Here is a link to Austin Home Brew's clone. I've never made it, but the original is dynamite.

That looks like a good one. Anyone have any other suggestions? Maybe even just a type of beer too start looking at?

Any of the Scottish ale varieties will be malty since that is what the style is all about. If you're a new brewer I would recommend a /70 or /80 rather than a wee heavy (since wee heavy's can be awfully big beer). Check the recipe database, there are lots of great recipes there.

If you're after a bit o' goblin I know a man with a recipe.

Mash anything high and it will get you a malty brew.

Try using some Munich malt in your favourite recipe, it's high in melanoids and very malty.

100% Munich malt for a Munich Dunkel will give you a nicely malty beer if you want to make a lager.
