Brewed once a year and aged for 6 months before bottling.

This beer is dedicated to the breweries that once made this style of beer in vast quantities for export to the Baltic States. It contains five different malts and dark treacle, but only one variety of hop which is Northern Brewer.

Once the initial fermentation is over the beer is transferred into a conditioning tank, placed in the brewery cellar and aged for a period of six months. This allows the complex flavours to develop before the next stage which is bottling. The beer is re-primed with sugar and a fresh dose of alcohol tolerant yeast, bottled and then placed in a conditioning room between 25-30 degrees C. After 4-6 weeks the beer is checked for carbonation levels, taste and other quality parameters. If all is well, then it is ready to be sold which is usually around November or December. As the beer is only made once a year there is a limited supply each year which is usually around 1,600 bottles. Every bottle is numbered and marked with the month and year of production and is therefore unique.
