Review: One of the big boys. Guinness. Everyone has heard of it… I think its what children are breastfed in Ireland. You read that right. Go ahead and read it again just to make sure and…yup you got it right the first time. Guinness’ head is fantastic when you pull of the perfect pour. If you haven’t heard of the perfect pour… this guy explains it with quite some passion. When we tried Guinness together there were a lot of comparisons to iced coffee, especially when we realized the dry-bitter after taste after its initial carmel-malty start. As fantastic as this classic is you unfortunately can’t drink it all night. After one or two you feel like you just ate a filling meal. Still starting the night off with one of these is a great call. If you can’t handle such a filling dark beer we’d recommend mixing it with a Smithwicks or a Harp to make a delicious black and tan. It will be a bit easier for your stomach to handle more of and you’ll look pretty boss.
