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 Maine’s deepest lake. Enjoy.

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.

Pours a light brown, two-finger head that goes slowly and leaves some lace. Black as midnight. Light carbonation and heavy bodied. Roasted/burnt coffee nose. Starts and finishes with a burnt chocolate flavor, smooth. $3.75 for a 22oz bottle from the brewery Gorham, Me.

On tap at the brewpub. Black color with a creamy light brown head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Ordinary flavor of coffee and roasted malt with a bitter finish. Light to medium body, dry texture, soft carbonation.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Draft - Poured very Guiness-like... nitrogen bubble cascade that left a creamy tan head that hung in until the end. Aroma was of roasted malts with coffee. Flavor was weaker than I expected with roasted malt, coffee and a bare hint of chocolate. Had a bitter/sour astringency that detracted from the overall experience. Unfortunately the pour was the best part... only OK...

At this point in the night, on my last sample of Sebago’s beer, I was contemplating stabbing myself with my knife. These beers are sooo bad, I’m sorry, but it needs to be said. On draught at the Portland brewpub, 5/21/2005 with Muzzlehatch. That said, this one was a decent finish to the session. Nitro head remains (beige-yellow) on a dark, almost opaque chocolate brown body. Smells of light sourness (what the hell is that sour note that is in all of their beers?) hints of chocolate and coffee. Watery, low nitrogenation, but enough to kill most of the flavor. Chocolate finish, some light vanilla and roast, simple beer, bits of toasted grain acid. Watery, slick. Medium-light body. Thank god, I’m done with Sebago!

5 ounces of pure joy :) sampled with the willing and wanton ClarkVV at the brewpub. Dispensed via nitrogen. Lasting smooth tan head topping a black-brown thick-looking body....cocoa and a touch of vanilla in a friendly aroma looking for strength and not finding it amidst the nitro...very smooth, no surprise, though a bit astringent late with lots of fruity acids, moderated by moderately sweet chocolate. Finally, something drinkable! Oops, its the last one.

KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Had this at the Sebago Brewery in South Portland, Maine. Dark brown color with a thick head. I love coffee (esp. Dunkin’ Donuts) and this reminded me of that, so of course I love it. Needs cream.

ericnixon (740) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 15, 2005
ON tap at the brewery. Black color with a brown head that never went away. Smooth smooth smooth moutfeel, like silk on the tongue with a bitter coffee flavor.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 This stout nails it all. Perfect head, nice thick, creamy, sweet taste. I dont really know what else to say, I couldn’t think of one thing i’d change about this beer.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2003
Very dark brown. Chocolatey/hoppy mix in the aroma. Fair bit of roast in the palate. Straight-up stout, with hints of lemony hop. Assertive, dry and tasty.
