Notes/Commercial Description:
Lake Trout Stout is midnight black with a thick and creamy head. It is a full bodied 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. It is named after the famous deep water Sebago Lake Togue or Lake Trout which inhabit the depths of Maine's deepest lake. Enjoy.

My beer review served in a 8 oz. plastic hotel cup.

Black with a showy tan head. Several layers of lace left like one of those sand art things bottles.

Smells like roast malt, char and goey dark chocolate syrup. Has an encompassing leafy, muddy throughout.

Tastes like it smells only stronger. Bittersweet chocolate and coffee with a lovely bitter roast malt back and fade. Mud puddle earthyness.

A bit thin for most stouts but downright chewy at 4.75% abv.

Lake Trout is Sebago's epiphany beer; far better than anything else in their portfolio. Three years ago I actually heard an argument about this very subject break out two rows in front of me during a Phish concert.

Poured on nitro-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer has a great cascade along the chestnut and auburn body, leveling off with a thin, dense, light tan head that looks creamy smooth. Aromas of roast coffee, dark chocolate, and a solid roasted grain in the background. Flavors of coffee, both roasted and bitter, on a light, dry body. Dark chocolate and charcoal lace the tongue and roof of the mouth while you drink, with the solid coffee bitter keeping the palate in check. Smokey and roasted aftertaste, with a curtain of lacing all over the glass. The finish is bitter and dry, just as it should be. Very tasty and smooth.

A: A dark brown with just a hint of red in there. Thick and dense light brown head. Fades slowly leaving a nice swirly lacework behind.

S: Nice roasty aroma. Mainly coffee with a bunch of oatmeal that adds some nice creaminess. A hint of bitter dark chocolate and a touch of smoke.

T: Smooth oatmeal with some smokey/charred malt. Coffee mainly and just a hint of dark chocolate but not much. Fairly bitter with all the smoke and coffee. The oatmeal tries to smooth it out but doesn't quite make it.

M: Medium bodied, smooth and creamy.

O: Not a bad stout. On the very roasty and smokey side. Low sweetness; quite bitter. Almost no sign of chocolate which probably would have helped balance it out.
