Draught @ Sebago Brewing Company, Portland, ME: Comes black, giant marshmallow tan head. Aroma is molasses and toffee, roast coffee, anise and sour cherry. Drinks very smooth, if not a little watery. The taste provides plenty of roasty coffee beans, dark cocoa, lots of bitterness, almost no sweetness at all. Enjoyable!

Sebago Lake Trout Stout is a brown-black ale with a thin brown head that fades. It has a very roasty, chocolate, coffee aroma. It smells so roasty! Itís quite full bodied and quite smooth. The finish is slightly gritty. Itís bitter and roasty with chocolate and coffee notes. Thereís a touch of anise at the finish. Itís a wicked solid American stout.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tons of chocolate and coffee in the nose, with quite a bit of dried fruit that include prunes. Opaque black under a thick, lacy top. Tons of chocolate in the flavour with sweet, dark malts and a dark malt bitterness that comes off as a bit dry in the end. Lasting coffee flavour, light to medium body, low carbonation, moderately bitter chocolate finish.

Sampled from the bottle at the 2010 February Circle City Tasting. Poured a dark brown with a very small brown head. Aroma was full of roasted malts throughout, a bit one note. Flavor was similar and one note with roasted malts. Not particularly sweet.

Pours a dark black. Great head with aggressive pour. Cream, dark tan with great lacing. Delicious roasted malt aroma. Chocolate and caramel fills the nose. Tastes of coffee. Strong hop presence. Sweet roasted malts balance. Medium on the palate. Carbonation at good levels. Slightly fizzy. This beer has fantastic aroma. Good flavor, but a tad hoppy. Very good.
