Charter Oak Brewing Company LLC: Lights Out Stout
Charter Oak's current limited release in our popular 'Charter Series' is a re-release of the Lights Out Stout which has been carefully cellar aged in the bottle for one year. This is a very well rounded and perfectly balanced, yet robust, Russian Imperial Stout. This ‘ultra’ limited release was brewed to an opaque, midnight black shade with an abundance of specialty malted and roasted barley and plenty of East Kent Golding and Northern Brewer hops. Lights Out Stout enjoys a complex taste profile of coffee, toffee and a mild chocolate backend and at 9.1% ABV it's a real sipper on a chilly New England winter evening. Look for the bourbon barrel release soon. Beer Stats: 9.1% ABV; 50IBU; 45SRM Tasting Notes: This is a robust, yet well-balanced Stout, cellar aged for a year in the bottle with hints of chocolate, coffee, toffee, and caramel and a solid roasted barley back bone. It pours a dark black with a full head of tan foam and enjoys a dominant chocolate and caramel aroma. From your first sip, there is no mistake that this style has plenty of fresh hops; however the full malted barley backbone hides any hint of bitterness. This is well-balanced Russian Imperial Stout with a generous ABV at 9.1% and full flavor.
