Turn Out the Lights, an Irish Dry Stout, was brewed to commemorate our first 5 years. Although known for brewing high alcohol beers, we mixed it up in year 5 with a nice 5% stout. A jet black appearance and thick head define this beer’s rich character and the use of coffee-like roasted barley heavily influences the aroma. While the flavor is initially accentuated by light caramel, it finishes with a distinctive dry-roast bitterness. Pleasant, but gentle and subtle fruit esters are overshadowed by the malt, bittering hop, and roasted barley character. You’ll actually find the body of Turn Out the Lights fairly light, which is attributed to it being on nitro.
Our penchant for names with multiple meanings is on display again with Turn Out the Lights – its deep black color naturally invokes ‘lights out’ imagery, we literally turned out the lights on 2016 with the New Year’s Eve release of this beer, and it references the musical shenanigans heard in the brewery and highlighted during our crew’s 2015 holiday party.
