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.

CapFlu (4473) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2006
(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub in South Portland, ME, on April 15, 2006. Lasting brown head with an opaque body. Nose is very roasty with a mild bitter cocoa powder. Flavour is coffee and cream with bitter chocolate finish. Creamy yet somewhat thin.

OhioDad (2493) - 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.

Courtesy of Matta. Black pour, tan head, awesome coffee and chocolate flavors, pretty sweet. Great tasting stout.

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.

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.

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.

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.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 17, 2005
22oz. Pours a nice black color with an off white foamy head. Nose is faint, but light roast is discovered for those who venture deep enough. Taste is just dry, bland, some bad chocolate notes, and a filth in your mouth upon swallowing. Just nothing to be desired here.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2005
Draft, South Portland location. Black body, with a small khaki head. Very roasty acidc aroma and a bit of sweet malt. Roasty bitterness dominates the aroma and does not invite many flavour friends along for the ride. Creamy smooth palate is incongrously thin.<P> "Are you still working on that pickle or are you done?" - Waitress

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - OCT 21, 2005
(22 oz. bottle) Pours very very dark brown, creamy tan head, fair lacing. Aromas not prominent but mostly coffee and a little chocolate. Roasty flavor of strong coffee with a touch of dark chocolate. Smooth. But what killed it was a grassy flavor in finish. Too bad, otherwise a good stout.
