Bourbon Barrel Aged Lake Trout StoutBourbon Barrel Aged Lake Trout Stout

Brewed by:
Sebago Brewing Company
United States

Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Notes / Commercial Description:
We aged our stout in four freshly emptied charred oak bourbon barrels for over four months. Next we carefully blended it with fresh stout to balance the character of the barrel with the boldly familiar flavor of Lake Trout Stout.

22oz. bottle served in a Spiegelau tulip. Pours an inky black with a creamy, quarter-inch, khaki-colored head that settles into a broken slick. Spots and swaths of lacing are revealed during the tasting. Nose expresses a hint of oxidation, milk chocolate, vinous notes towards the back and perhaps a kiss of ethanol. Taste is a bit chalky and watered down - really no traces of the barrel present in the flavor profile. Primary character is baker's chocolate, followed by some roast. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body (but closer to light) with a mild carbonation and a trace of acidity. Overall - meh. Why barrel-age a beer and impart no character. Swing and a miss.

Drinking a bottle thats been aged for at least a year

Pours a pitch black body with the slightest mahogany highlights. Head is 3 fingers and chocolate milk colored. Lacing is pretty awesome and head remained present throughout

Smell is of charred oak, sweet vanilla, molasses, and chocolate syrup. Bourbon is very light but alcohol scent is potent for a 6% abc beer. Hops are non existent.

Taste is of burnt, biscuity, chocolate malt, semisweet dark chocolate, and charred oak. Hops are slightly present and bourbon contributes some alcohol flavor.

Mouthfeel is somewhat light for this style but the head adds to the fullness of the beer. Carbonation is a little higher than most stouts.

Overall this beer was pretty tasty. Very drinkable, yet flavorful aged stout. If only there was a bit more bourbon flavor present this beer would be in my top ten. Glad that I received it in a BIF, otherwise I probably would have never heard of it.

Picked up a bomber on a recent beer run. I liked Lake Trout, so how could I not try it BA? Pours a dark brown coloring, with only the slightest of chestnut highlights around the surface with direct light on it. Pours smoothly, with a thin, light, filmy, light-tan colored head. Aromas of smooth cream, bitter roasted coffee, and a woody characteristic at the end that is slightly charred. Good balance on the aromas. Flavors are a little more charred, and with the roast coffee characteristic this gives an initial bitterness with a slight campfire flare. Cream profile is muddled in, and helps to keep the beer a little balanced and a little rich. Very subtle blend of earthy and woody characteristics at the end of the palate. Smooth and light in body, the beer has a roasty and bitter aftertaste, with hints of dark chocolate coming through. Very smooth, clean finish. Very decent brew, and a tasty spin-off from the Lake Trout Stout.

Appears to have a beautiful dark brown body with a half-point off for a ridiculously oversized, even cakelike, tan head. I started to wonder if there was a bit of an infection, but it seems to be OK, judging by the ...

...smell is mild but nice. Cocoa powder and bitter chocolate stand out. Not a big bourbon contribution at all. Although, there is a bit of...

...flavor from the barrel. Some oak and a little vanilla from the bourbon. The chocolate bitterness shows up again, but not much at all of dark fruits or molasses, or anything much more intense. Not too surprising judging by the ABV. Still, it's a smooth, tasty and modest brew, that description extends even to the...

...mouthfeel, which is thin and generally medium. No thickness, oilyness, toothstrippiness or other "extreme" adjectives, but...

...overall a decent, well-made and drinkable american stout. barrel-aging adds very little here, but it is certainly not over done. Enjoyable.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours an opaque dark brown color with a half finger of creamy, off white head that fades to a layer on top of the pour.

Smell: I'm getting a strong roast presence with some mild dark fruit notes, but overall the smell is rather mild and not too interesting.

Taste: Just like the smell, the roast completely dominates the taste. There is a hint of bourbon along with some dark fruit in the background. The finish is quite bitter from the roasted malt.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is rather thin with fairly aggressive carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I think this one would have benefitted from a slightly higher abv or a slightly lower amount of roast. Not enough balance.

This is a bottle of the first batch, from way back in early 2010. It has been in my cellar since that time. I am pouring it into a Delerium Tremens snifter. I heard from a friend that this beer may have turned and that I should drink my bottle soon.

A very loud hiss was heard as I popped the cap. I actually felt the released carbonation force the cap off. As I pour the beer, it appears to be 99% foam. It is a dark foam, the color of chocolate milk. It is begining to turn into a liquid, but very slowly. The beer at the bottom of the glass is opaque and a shade of dark, dark brown—nearly black. Swirling the beer leaves a uniform lace coat behind.

The aroma is very pleasing. It isn't quite subtle, but it isn't overpowering or in your face. It is complex. There is a good mix of toasted malts, oak, bourbon and a hint of smoke.

This is a bourbon barrel aged stout that isn't entirely about the bourbon! A dark, roasted malt base has some slight chocolate flavors. Plenty of oak comes through. Peat, smoke and bourbon are present in the finish, but none are all too strong. There is no harshness form the barrel aging process; the 2 years in my cellar have really mellowed this brew. The bourbon is most noticable in the aftertaste. Here you can really pick it out of the other flavors. It also provides some warmth once it is in your stomach.

The beer is heavier in body without being thick. Carbonation is a lot lower than I expected. Despite the large head when I poured, the feeling within my mouth is of a calm beer. I can feel a few bubbles, but it is hardly noticeable. My lips are left a little sticky, as is the inside of my mouth, but I do not feel a film.

I am going to have to go ahead and say that I really like this beer a lot. It's been a while since I've had it fresh so I won't compare it to this aged variety. I can say that the original batch of bottles is still drinking quite nicely. It is very refreshing to have a bourbon barrel aged stout that doesn't taste like a shot of bourbon poured into a bit of stout. This is a more subtle, complex kind of beverage. If you have a bottle of this in your cellar, consider cracking it open, as it is drinking beautifully. If you don't have any, perhaps you should track some down and sit on them for a spell.

I can't say this is as good as an aged bottle of Sebago's barleywine, but it is nearly that beer's equal. It's an excellent beer and is highly recommended.

2011 bottle served in a snifter on 6-4-2012.

A big hiss of carbonation released the moment I pried off the cap. Poured slowly into the glass, a dense and dark black/ burnt brown color still manages to quickly activate a huge and resilient foamy tan head. An inviting nose of rich dark chocolate chunks, caramel and vanilla allures the senses. A cola like carbonation and sweetness delivers a crisp opening before gliding over the palate into a smoky charred wood character that resides heavily on the palate after the finish with complementing echoes of sharp and dry espresso.

Reviewing a cellar temp bottle of this brew poured into a snifter. The beer pours a cola brown hue with creamy tan edge layer. Aroma is roasted malt and brown sugar mixing with a heavy dose of bourbon and some dry wooden notes. Pretty complex nose for this brew.
First sip reveals mild spacious carbonation and sillky smooth texture with average body. Flavor is sweet brown sugar and bourbon with some dry roasted malt notes on the finish. There is no booze hit anywhere which makes sense with a lower ABV brew even though the bourbon notes make me anticipate a little heat. I dont get any real hop profile on this brew and find it a very easy drinker for malt lovers. Complex while not being in your face robust, that equals well crafted in my book!

Sudsy Lace, Foamy/Creamy tan head that settles pretty quickly. Shiny dark brown in color.

Just a touch of oak, vanilla and bourbon below the surface in the aroma. Roasted, but not quite charred malt as well.

Some ash, some chocolate, a bit of vanilla and a decent amount of oak. Nice rounded dark roasted malt flavor.

A bit milky in mouthfeel. A touch light for my preference.

A decent stout, and probably not fair that I continue to think it’s a Imp Stout, which it’s apparently not. No matter, it’s pretty good, not very good to great.

22oz bottle into Duvel tulip. Bought this despite never having tried regular Lake Trout Stout before, due to loving Sebago's Bourbon Barrel Barleywine. Also, $9~ for a BA Stout is worth a try.

Appearance: Free pour yields a half inch, frothy light tan head. Pours a dark brown with red highlights and leaves occasional spots and tight arches of lacing.

Smell: From the bottle: muted vanilla. From the glass: Coffee bean, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt. The smell gets a bit deeper with time, but lacks punch.

Taste: Nutty roasted malt, some coffee and chocolate. Thin body. No barrel influence whatsoever.

While there's some cherry and a bit of the nose's pastry-like complexity, the beer tastes predominantly of roasted malt bitterness, with some chocolate covered coffee beans. Occasionally has a bit of a cheap whiskey flavor (which is bad). Pretty disappointing.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and watery. Undercarbonated. Semi-dry finish.

Overall: No reason to buy this when you can get a 4pk of vastly superior North Coast Old Rasputin or Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout for about the same price or less. Subpar beer, whether you're comparing it to barrel aged beers or any good stout.

Thanks to DividedAvery for the bottle.

22oz. brown bomber poured into a chalice.

A: Pours just about pitch black with no light shining through. Moderate head on the pour with some retention and only a bit of lacing.

S: Subtle roast with caramel and toffee aromas. Some sweetness as well. More porter like. Not really any bourbon and only slight barrel aromas.

T/M: The roast is much more pronounced with some chalky char notes as well. The caramel and toffee are dialed down a bit but the malty sweetness, although lighter in the flavor, still remind me of a porter. There is a bit of bourbon, and maybe a touch more barrel than in the nose, but still very subtle. The body is medium full at most with about average carbonation.

D: The description says they barrel aged and then blended back... not sure why as the bourbon and the barrel character is lacking. I understand balance, but the bourbon/barrel is nearly not there and even at 5.8% it could have handled more. A decent beer but nothing to rave about and certainly not worth the $10 price tag.

From 01/02/12 notes. Thanks to joepais for this one. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip.

a - Pours a pitch black color with one inch of medium tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks pretty nice for a stout.

s - Smells of roasted malts, chocolate, light
bourbon, vanilla, and light coffee. Not a lot of bourbon here, but still nice.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, chocolate, lightly bitter, wood, nutty, and a little bourbon. Taste has much less bourbon than the nose; not bad but pretty average.

m - Light body and low to moderate carbonation. Very watery mouthfeel; not great for a BA stout.

o - Overall a decent beer, but pretty average. Kind of went downhill as I drank it; Looked good, smelled decent, taste ok, and had a bad mouthfeel. An interesting try sinc eit is a 5.6% BBA stout, but it seems to me it is too diluted with the fresh Lake Trout Stout.

Bottle shared by mdfb79. Thanks Mike.

The beer is dark brown with a sticky, soapy, beige head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. The aroma is unusual, offering cream, vanilla, soda, malt, alcohol. The beer is really light and thin, and a bit watery on the palate. Moderately low carbonation. What bourbon character is there is very understated. Overall, not bad, but rather bland and unexciting.

Thanks to Dan for opening up this bottle. Served in a SAVOR wine glass.

Pours near black with a very thin head and a bit of a collar. The nose has some faint bourbon and a bit of chocolate plus mild roast. Flavor is a bit watery and really light. Mouthfeel is very light with low carbonation. Very watery. Good character but far too mild.

Pours a ruddy dark brown, not what I’d expect for a stout, let alone one barrel-aged. Aroma doesn’t entice, on the lighter spectrum and especially not bourbon-y enough. Taste overly sweet more than with a thin body. Not one I’d have again, or seek out.

*Note: from reading the description I realize that perhaps this was exactly the way the beer should have tasted—not a big boozy imperial stout, but an everyday drinker that had some time in charred barrels. Still not excited about it but it would be worth revisiting—perhaps side by side with the regular release.

22 oz beer was poured into a Nerax imperial pint glass.

Appearance: Pitch black, tiny head, and no visibility. Where's the bubbles.

Smell: Nice roasted coffee aroma, vanilla, oak, smokiness, light malt aroma, and really slight bourbon aroma. Should have more bourbon characteristics given the amount of time it was aged in the barrels.

Taste: Same as above, but the bourbon sticks out and some burnt flavors too that must come from the charred barrels. Interesting. A little too much charred/burnt flavors and they seem to linger around in the back of my mouth. Thank god everyting else balances that off.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, light for a stout and easy to drink. I could drink plenty of these.

Overall: Not to sure what to think of this barrel aged beer. I think i will stick to the normal Lake Trout Stout next time I am up in Maine. Too much burnt and charred taste in mouth is not too exciting, but the rest of the beer is good. Wish there was no charring and more whisky/bourbon flavor. Now that would be delicious.

thanks to baconsausage for hooking this up...very much appreciated.

a - opened the beer and filled my cbs snifter. poured a somewhat watery black that settled with some visible carbonation and a very milk stout head. the head was around for a little, but definitely not the shiny gloss of BA beers that i'm used to.

s - crisp roasted malts. again, something about this just makes me think milk stout. some char and some burnt chocolate.

t - kind of weird and meh. burnt. like a super burnt cookie. soft milk stout underneath.

m - the charred flavor is a bit intense and leaves a burnt feeling in my mouth. a bit fizzy. more porter like than anything.

o - overall, there is no way that this can be bourbon barrel aged. i mean the label says it, but there is no trace of bourbon anywhere in this. although at closer look, it says charred oak bourbon barrels...so i guess it IS there and too much so. the char just takes over on this one. the porter like qualities mixed with the milk stout like qualities are nice, but the char just seems to ruin it. i'd like to check out the non-BA aged version. for a "Bourbon Barrel Aged" version of a beer, this one just doesn't deliver and seems pretty average whereas, I find most Bourbon Barrel Aged beers to be pretty stand out.

A- Pours dark as night, no light passing through. Massive mocha colored head, fades quickly. Leaves some nice lacing and thin ring around the edge of the glass.

S- Def getting the some of the bourbon characters - oak, vanilla, roasted notes and hints of cherry.

T- doesnt really match the nose well getting the nutty roasted tastes upfront slight hints of vanilla then left with some bitterness to finish things off.

M- A bit thin on mouth, carbonation is ok, quite drinkable

O- Nose is the best part of this drink and its quite nice...wish the taste matched the nose and that it was a bit thicker on the mouth...avg beer not bad glad i picked it up

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

Appearance: Despite a hard pour, I was only able to raise a smidge of a head and that quickly faded away to a ringlet; still there were very attractive strands of lace coating the sides of the chalice after each sip

Smell: Chocolate, char, bourbon and vanilla

Taste: Chocolate and black bread, up front, with the char, bourbon and vanilla developing by mid-palate; very dry, in the aftertaste, with more black bread and chocolate than anything else

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I like the concept here; barrel age a regular old dry stout rather than brew a high gravity beer for the barrel; admittedly, the mouthfeel is a little thin, but I think the complaints from others in this aspect reflect a mis-understanding of what this beer is about - with a 5.8% ABV it is not going to have a big mouthfeel

Thanks, Bendurgin, for the opportunity

Bottled on 3/8/11

Purchased @ Johnsons Market Place, New Durham NH

Price - $8.99/bomber

Pours near black with a one inch off white creamy head. Above average retention and nice legs. fresh look of foam even after five minutes a thick sheen is visible.

The nose is inviting if your familiar with the scent of bourbon. For me though the beer itself should shed some qualities of its own. Chocolate and coffee hide in the shadows adding to it's authentic qualities.

The flavor begins and pretty much ends with a vanilla and bourbon adventure.

Mouthfeel is thin to at best medium, but come on it's 5.8% and at this low octane level I think it rocks. Light carbonation.

Overall I won't lie, this is much better than the regular version. At under 6% the ingredients here with a little bourbon barrel influence pays plenty dividends on both tastebuds and score. I dig it. Having said that you probably could do the same for many other beers but here it really works well. This may be one of my favorite under 6% local beers. Good job!

Lake Trout Bourbon Barrel, bottle bought at The Wine Thief on Crown Street, New Haven, Connecticut, for $9.50.

Appearance: Pours quiet alright, dark and black with a hefty brown-colored head. Significant lacing, good retention, low carbonation.

Smell: Smoke, bacon, country ham, small-town chimneys in the winter. Frog skin. Nice char. Just-caught salmon smoked right by the river in some remote creek in the Pacific Northwest. A hearty and beautiful brew for an autumn night (in the nose only).

Taste: The disappointment starts here. Not a bad taste per se, but WAY too thin. I do like the meatiness and the smoke and the faint bourbon and coffee at the end, but at this price and coming from a barrel, this should have a much stronger bourbon profile.

Mouthfeel: Even worse. Watery thin, it leaves you craving more. Nothing to see here, move on.

Overall: A failure. You can't age a stout in a charred bourbon barrel, charge ten bucks and have it come out thin and with barely a hint of said barrel. Smell is beautiful, but that's about it. I want my money back.

22 oz. Bottle poured into my Duvel tulip.

Appearance: Dark brown with little head that quickly disappears into a thin ring. Decent lacing.

Smell: Bourbon comes through nicely on the nose accompanied by roasted malt aromas. Hints of coffee are also noticeable.

Taste: The bourbon is muted; it’s there but not at all up-front. Roasted malt dominates, rich and flavorful, mild coffee. Altogether not a bad combination of flavors.

Mouthfeel: Barrel aging tends to “thin-out” a beer; however, this seems to be very thin almost too thin.

Overall: Not bad, not great. The flavor is pretty good with a bourbon-light roasted malt characteristic.

Chilled bottle into a glass. Shared by mlaroche. Thanks, Matt.

A: Pours a tan / mocha head with no body whatsoever at first. I swear, the beer literally changed phase upon leaving the bottle, pouring entirely as bubbles. Five minutes later, it had coalesced into something more appropriate of a beer.

S: Smell roasty, slightly rancid -- reminds me of burning plastic. Some coffee and chocolate notes eventually waft out. Barrel aromas are very subdued.

T: Burnt wood, bourbon, slightly tangy dark fruit. Some elements of coffee and chocolate emerge, but they're nearly an afterthought. There's a solventy nature that reminds me of burnt plastic again. I just don't find this an impressive attempt at the style.

M: Thin, way overcarbonated, no melding of flavors.

O: Barrel-aged imperial stouts are becoming a dime a dozen; this is proof. Don't bother.

The other night I drank and reviewed the standard Lake Trout Stout. Tonight I am drinking the bourbon barrel aged version. Poured into a Brooklyn Brewery tulip glass. Dark brown in color; borderline black. An aggressive pour is needed to attain any head, but there is some good lacing. Smell was pleasant, but lacked that barrel aging aroma I was looking for. There was some coffee aromas, but again a tad sour. Flavor was very tasty though. I picked up some vanilla and and smoke, along with milk chocolate. Yet I still do not get a lot of the bourbon in the taste. Mouthfeel was good for a stout - malt and creamy. I like this beer, as it was a pleasure to drink. But why take the time to age a beer, then blend it, and release a product that is mostly devoid of the very aspect that people bought it for? I paid almost double for this compared to the normal version, and I really don't see or taste what I got in return.

Poured into a snifter.

Pours pitch black with a massive head at first.  All head.  I had to add little by little until I had an acceptable glass.  Mocha head.  Great lacing.

Nose is malty up front,  mostly roasted coffee malt, but it's subdued.  Some dark fruits; prunes.  Just a touch of bourbon barrel.

Predominately roasted malt.  A touch of coffee and wood.  Finishes with some bourbon and smokiness.  Slightly bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is somewhat thin and highly carbonated.  I prefer my stouts thick and viscous.

Overall this is a standard stout with a touch of added bourbon barrel aging.  You have to search for the bourbon, though.
