Charter Oak Releases Lights Out Russian Imperial Stout

Charter Oak Lights Out

New Canaan, CT – Charter Oak Brewing Company’s latest 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 back-end and at 9.1% ABV it’s a real sipper for a chilly New England winter evening.

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.
