Black Donkey Brewing, known for its innovative and high-quality brews, proudly presents the Bog Fire Saison. This beer is a true reflection of the brand's commitment to crafting unique and memorable beverages. The Bog Fire Saison is not just any beer; it's a journey through the rich landscapes of Ireland, captured in a glass.

The foundation of this beer is its turf smoked malt, a nod to the traditional Irish method of using turf as a fuel. This imparts a distinctive smoky aroma and flavour to the beer, reminiscent of the Irish countryside. The beer's fermentation process, using the house yeast Morrigan 1, adds depth and complexity to its profile.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: Deep amber with a slight haze, topped with a frothy off-white head.
  • Aroma: The nose is immediately hit with the earthy scent of turf smoke, complemented by hints of malt sweetness and subtle whiskey undertones.
  • Flavour: A harmonious blend of smokiness, malt sweetness, and the subtle nuances of whiskey, imparted from its time spent in ex-Irish whiskey barrels.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a smooth texture, the carbonation adds a refreshing crispness to each sip.

After maturing for an impressive 3 1/2 years in an ex-Irish whiskey barrel, the Bog Fire Saison underwent a transformation, with the whiskey barrel imparting additional layers of flavour and character to the beer. The result is a beer with a well-rounded profile, where the smokiness of the turf malt is balanced by the sweetness of the malt and the subtle notes of whiskey.

Black Donkey Brewing has always been at the forefront of the craft beer scene, and the Bog Fire Saison is a testament to their expertise and passion for brewing. This beer is perfect for those who appreciate the nuances of a well-crafted brew and are looking for something unique and memorable.

In conclusion, the Bog Fire Saison is more than just a beer; it's an experience, a taste of Ireland in a glass.
