Holy Willie’s Robust Porter
6.5% ABV • 25 IBU
Holy Willie Robust Porter is a truly stout ale. Featuring BC & British specialty barley and malted & flaked oats, its bitterness is masked behind roasted chocolate flavours. Bold yet creamy, acrid yet malty. Robust indeed.
Robert Burns’ “Holy Willie’s Prayer” exists as one of the great satires of poetic creation; a prayer asking forgiveness but also for the strike of Hellfire against enemies. Holy Willie’s Robust Porter exists ‘Strong as a Rock’, Hellfire borrowed to roast the malts, but asks no forgiveness from the flock.
Excerpt from HOLY WILLIE’S PRAYER by Robert Burns
“Yet I am here a chosen sample,
To show thy grace is great and ample;
I’m here a pillar o’ Thy temple,
Strong as a rock,
A guide, a buckler, and example,
To a’ Thy flock.”
