Catholic Guilt™ – Smoked Porter

The Story

Yes, you’ve been there. Enjoying something you’re not supposed to. But, you liked it. Then the guilt set in. So what have Irish Catholics done for centuries? It’s off to confession and with three “Hail Mary’s” and five “Our Father’s.” Just like this delicious Smoked Porter, you’ll be sure to enjoy it a little too much. Carefully crafted with dark roasted caramel flavors, sweet undertones, and a touch of smokiness. Distinctly dark hued with a silky smooth finish, this Smoked Porter offers up a guilty treat worthy of confession.
