COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lake Trout Stout is Midnight black with a thick and creamy head. It is a full body stout brewed with oatmeal and plenty of hops to balance the roasted barley. Our stout is an experience. It tastes the same way it looks dark and rich. You will preceive it as thick and chewy and our Lake Trout stout delivers. It is named after the famous deep water Sebago Lake Togue or Lake Trout which inhabit the depths of Maineís deepest lake. Enjoy.

kramer (5360) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2006
22 oz bottle, via porterhouse. Pours a clear black colored body with a little light passing through the edges. Very dark brown head, kinda foamy looking, that left nice lacing. Aroma is very clean and roasty with a light hoppiness and notes of coffee, chocolate, and chalk. Flavor is a little too astringent and also pretty thin. Not what I was expecting. A ton of charred ashy malt and not much else. Finishes rather harsh. Mouthfeel is fairly thin and watery in texture with moderate soft carbonation. Overall, this really started out quite nice. Great appearance and aroma, then it was all downhill from there. Tone down the burnt malt astringency and you might have something here.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 22, 2006
Courtesy of Matta <P> Aroma is rich roasted coffee and chocolate. Deep black color with a thumb thick tan head. Roasty and bitter. Bitter bakerís chocolate. Very smooth mouthfeel, but much more roasty than it should be for a sweet stout. Could use a lot more creamy, vanilla sweetness than it has to balance it...and make it taste like an actual sweet stout.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 23, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2008 22oz bomber from The Lighthouse in Manchester. Pours a pitch-black completely opaque body with a short lived half inch of tan head. Aroma is roasty with bakerís chocolate dominating and slight caramel notes. Tastes very roasty, like coffee, bakerís chocolate, with hints of caramel toward the finish, and notes of vegetal hops. Rich full body with moderate carbonation. A bit of a sipper, especially considering the ABV, but damn tasty and another top-shelf offering from Sebago.

Brewzer (3) - London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2005 does not count
A classic - one of my faves. Creamy tan head, dark - almost black - body. Great tongue feel. Hoopy but not like Guinness - not bitter, with a creamy-sweet finish. Some bottles available at RSVP on Forest Ave.

ElPresidente1984 (173) - Maine, USA - DEC 1, 2005
bottle, pours black with a tan head. roasted coffee/malts aroma. taste is similar to aroma, with a nice balance of sweetness and slight bitterness of the hops. nice creamy mouth feel. like most stouts it leavs a kinda crappy bitter taste in your mouth. non the less, a solid brew.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Julios Spring Beer Festival. Light coffee aroma. Pour of murky dark black chocolate with a lacy rim of tan. Flavor is a sweet, but thin, film of oily coffee residue and chocolate covered espresso beans. Oak, tannins and cocoa butter dryness play out in the backend. Really not all that enticing to me. Finish of dry cherries.

DYCSoccer17 (3490) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 23, 2006
22 oz bottle purchased at Yankee Spirits in Sturbridge, Mass. Blind tasting. Stout #3. Roasty, licorice/anise aroms with some chocolate notes present as well along with a decent hop profile in the nose. Nice opaque black body with a long-standing frothy tan head and nice lacing. Very attractive. Very bitter, very burnt and peat-like throughout. Black malts ar used, and a bit too much. A little harsh in the end with the bitterness of the malts and hops. Smooth, somewhat creamy mouthfeel. The nicest of the 3 samples.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2006
22oz bottle via trade with porterhouse - Thanks Kevin!! - Pours black with a slight tan head that fades quick to a ring with minimal lacing. Aromas of roasted malt and light coffee. Flavor is roasted malts, bakers chocolate, and an over abundance of hops. There are sweet notes there but they are overshadowed by the bitterness of the hops. Definitely some liccorice notes as well. To be completely honest this tasted like the fish on the front of the bottle took a swim in it before I drank it. Definitely some funky aftertaste that made it tough to drink.
