This limited release is 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 directly from the hop farms in the UK. Lights Out Stout enjoys a complex taste profile of coffee, chocolate, caramel and toffee and at 9.1% ABV it’s a real sipper on a cool Fall or Winter evening.

9.1% ABV; 50 IBU; 45 SRM

Tasting Notes

This is a robust, yet well balanced, Stout with hints of chocolate, coffee, toffee, and Carmel and a solid roasted barley back bone. It pours a dark black with a full head of tan foam and enjoys a dominate chocolate and coffee 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 hit of bitterness. This is a well balanced Russian Imperial Stout with a generous ABV at 9.1% and full flavor.

This limited release Stout joins our core Charter Oak Styles, … always brewed in fresh batches including our 1687 Brown Ale, Royal Charter Pale Ale, and the popular Wadsworth India Pale Ale.

Charter Oak’s Legendary Variety 12 Pack continues to be a popular choice in the Connecticut craft beer market. Most of the local Connecticut beer shops are now carrying this package. This dynamic design will allow craft beer drinkers to sample all three of Charter Oak’s popular styles. The variety sample pack includes four bottles of the 1687 Brown Ale, four bottles of the Royal Charter Pale Ale, and four bottles of their Wadsworth India Pale Ale..

All of these beers are brewed in small batches to assure Connecticut’s beer drinkers the freshest beer possible.
