Old Russet started out as a Belgian Dubbel style brown ale. The Special B malt and Dark Candi Syrup combined with the Belgian Abbey yeast contribute flavours of burnt sugar, caramel, raisins, figs and chocolate. Taking inspiration from Flemish Brown Ales, we then aged it in oak barrels for over six months with various Brett strains and Pedio souring bacteria. The final product has a complex dark fruit profile with pleasant sourness and a wine-like character.
