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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a very dark brown (almost black) with almost no head

S: Roasted malts and black coffee dominant with hints of dark chocolate

T: Follows the nose, very roasty with notes of coffee and bitter dark chocolate. The coffee gives it quite a bitter finish

M: Medium bodied with low-moderate carbonation. A tad bit thin, but it works with the abv nicely

O: An easy going stout that is nice and simple. Probably more suitable for the colder months, but still does fine in the warm weather. Certainly pairs well with a lot of their food (as most of their beers do)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a pitch black color with a minimal mocha color heat that dissipates quickly to a small patch of fine bubbles in the center of the brew.

S: A bit of coffee in the nose followed by huge amounts of roasted barley and a hint of oats. Most else is quite masked by the barley and some malts.

T: Initial taste has earthy tones of malts and some light barley, a light amount of cocoa and a hint of coffee was detectable as well.

M: Mouthfeel is lighter than expected, with an almost watery sensation as one is enjoy the beer. Medium-light body that's light on carbonation.

O: Overall, certainly not bad, but this is not one of the more memorable stouts I have had.

I picked up a bottle of this stout, and also the bourbon barrel aged version, back over the summer in Maine. Tonight I opened the regular version. Poured into a Great Divide Yeti tulip glass. First thing I noticed was the color - tar black. Darkest beer I have encountered in a while. Nice thin head and some attractive lacing marks on the glass. Smell reminded me a lot of an oyster stout I had recently - a bit mineral-like and sour. Flavor was dark and rich with coffee and chocolate. Notes on the bottle say this beer was brewed with oats, so that's an interesting addition. Mouthfeel was smooth and creamy, just like a good stout should be. A solidly built stout. I look forward to trying the barrel aged version this week to compare the two while still fresh in my mind. For under $4/bomber to go at the brewpub, this was a steal.
