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.

22oz bottle shared courtesy of egadjsisi. Poured a dark brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, oatmeal, and some caramel. A little earthy and woody. Tastes of chocolate, oatmeal (less than the aromas), and a lighter coffee.

halfonit (1164) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Pure black color with a dark brown head. Aroma is mainly of roasted malts with some chocolate and oatmeal undertones. Taste is pretty much full bodied. It has some coffee flavors as well as a little bit of dark chocolate. Leaves a nice and silky feel in the mouth for the aftertaste.

650 ml bottle courtesy of Coldbrewky. Thanks steve. Pours an opaque black color with a big foamy uneven tan head that has great retention and some lacing. The aroma is sweet with chocolate and coffee. The flavor is earthy with coffee, multilayer chocolates, mocha, biter walnuts and a bit of dirt. The mouthfeel is full and malty. The finish is long with lingering biter dark chocolate. Overall: This is a great sweet stout, it starts sweet and then finishes biter, very tasty.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 20, 2009
My Bottom Line:
This pillowy Stout develops lightly roasted coffee notes and blueberry esters, finishing in leafy hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the brownish black.
-The flavor profile is not really memorable, but the mouthfeel is really appealing and the malts flavors well rendered.
-Roasted malts reappear in the finish as well.
-This was not served on nitrogen, which is appreciated.

On tap at the Portland location.

coldbrewky (1423) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2009
First beer on the points north bus trip extravaganza vacation. On tap at the brewpub in Portland. Pours black in the glass, with a big oily head that lasts and lasts and lasts. Full bodied and strong. A warped mirror reflection of Young’s Oatmeal Stout that differs in Sebagos more aggressive black patent bitterness and successive hop finish. thick quaff rings encircle the pint glass. I had two with dinner. A fine pint.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 15, 2009
Bottle. Opaque black color. No head, though tannish ring circles the glass. Roasted elements, malty, coffee beans, almonds, nutty. Soda-like in consistency, though watery and flat. Bland and weak past the aroma and a real disappointment. Don’t tease the drinker.

22. Thanks, SuzyGreenberg! Jet black. Medium caramel highlights. Slim gray rim up top. Huge coffee and booze nose with plenty of chocolate there as well. Light, slightly creamy body. Chocolate, coffee, plums, and booze on the mid-palate. Nice stuff; the flavor seems imperial but the body is more like a house stout. Get that booze under control and this might turn out to be something.

22 oz bomber served in my Smuttynose tulip. Pours black with with a huge angry tan head. Nose is all cocoa. Palate is smooth with a medium body. Flavor is cocoa with a malty base. Some flavor of molasses as well. Didn’t get any hop flavor that some other raters are mentioning.

Pours deep black into a snifter. Fluffy mocha head pancakes and tophats as it slowly recedes. Chocolate and hop aromas. Sweet and sharp upfront with dark caramel, roasted oatmeal and chocolate. Lasting cocoa finish.
