I made an interesting discovery yesterday. The gelato place inside Luigi's has Guiness ice cream. Yes, as in flavored like the beer! I know that might sound gross, but it's actually quite delicious. They used to have it at an Irish restaurant when I lived in Chicago, but they got rid of it years ago and I haven't had it since then...till now. If you're an adventurous ice cream lover, check it out. They will let you try a taste spoon to see if you like it. I'm kinda surprised they don't offer it in Finnegans.

I think Ben&Jerry's has a Guiness ice cream as well. I think it is called Black and Tan. I have not tasted it but I'm going to give a try next time I see it.

It is soooo good! I think it might be Louies, not Luigi's?! It's the Italian place going toward Amity...I never ate there before so I don't really know the name. The gelato counter is separate from the big pizza counter.

But keep in mind I like other weird flavors like red bean, green tea, and sour yogurt ice cream so your own mileage may vary. I'm gonna get me a big ol' scoop next Thurs. at HHN.

If you think about Guinness sorta does taste a bit like coffee. They have coffee ice cream why not beer? Hope it's still there at Christmas to try.

Yeah the name didn't go down well in Ireland. To be honest state side i haven't had a decent pint of Guinness so i can only imagine how the ice cream tastes:lmao:

does anyone remember baskin robbins champagne flavored ice cream--we don't have the 31 flavors around here anymore--so I don't know if they still carry it, but it was delish.

I got a friend thats from England and only drinks Guinness.Got to say its a acquired taste,espiacally warm.But thats how its drank.Gave me a buzz after my second pint!!;)

He has got a keg and goes thru a keg every month and a half..I think it goes better with steak then by itself..IMO

Warm Guinness :laughing: must be an English thing, never heard of anyone drinking it warm, its bad enough cold.
Only decent place for a Guinness is Ireland especially around Dublin Area-sorry and Portlaoise area Ron Burgundy:rolleyes1

Eh warm Guinness, any more jokes:rotfl2:

Being a keen stout drinker myself i can say that warm ain't the way to drink it. Oh and an English man giving advice on it is even funnier:lmao:

Oh the Guinness in Portlaoise ain't bad at all. But i'll stick to my local in Portarlington.

I'm telling you truthly thats the only way he drinks it..:sick: He is in his (i;m thinking)late 60's,but donn't look a day over 50..

If thats what it takes to live longer,I'm gonna start drinking my Coors warm.:eek:
But thats not a stout..I'm a Ale man personally.My favorite beer is Busch,the most popular beer at any bar I go to.But try finding it anywhere other then the bar or the store:mad: The 2nd or 3rd best selling beer A-B gots and they donn't serve it other then that:confused3


OH bye the way,Im as Irish as you can get..I still got family in the motherland :thumbsup2

Now state side Sam Adams makes a heck of a stout:thumbsup2

There was some sort of evil conspiracy to keep me from getting the Guiness ice cream last night. We went into Louie's a little before 4:30 and they said, "We can't sell it to you till night time." Uh...okay. Then I returned around 10, which is the same time I had it last time (park is open till midnight), and they said, "We're closed."

Tonight I will be on a mission to get my frozen Guiness treat!!

:confused: That's a real head scratcher ! We had beer at lunch when we ate at Finnegan's last trip......and just how much ice cream would you have to eat to get a buzz ;)

Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking. There's liquor all over the park, but they can't sell me Guiness ice cream?! Both times I was there, I had the keen impression that they didn't want to be bothered with a customer. The first time, we stood there for literally several minutes without being acknowledged before I finally asked, "Are you open?" They said, "We're not supposed to be but we'll take care of you." I dunno if that was true, but it was a little before 4:30 and the pizza end of things was definitely open and there were two workers in the gelato area. That's when I asked for the Guiness and was told, "We can only sell that at night." Weird...

Okay, I am officially cured from ever getting Guiness ice cream at USF again! This time I made sure I went to the gelato stand plenty early during HHN. I asked for a cup of the ice cream, which is how they served it before when I ordered other flavors. They said, "Oh, it only comes in a shot glass." We are talking a TINY shot glass (although it has one of those light up bottoms), and it was $7.50!!! Yep, that much money for a portion of ice cream rough the size of my little finger. At this point it had become a vendetta so I got it anyway, but sadly that will be it for me.

I wonder why they only serve it that way. It's not like the ice cream is laden with alcohol and gonna get you drunk. At the place where I used to get it, they just served it in normal portions. When that old place stopped serving it, I should have realized that I'm just not meant to ever have it again...sigh! The most exotic I'll order from now on is Pumpkin Pie flavor.

Actually you can just stop by and ask for the free taster spoon. It would be nearly as much ice cream as you get in the shot glass!

I agree Guinness tastes much better in Ireland and in Dublin it's best in the top of the Storehouse, ST James Gate

In our town we have a beer place called Flying Saucer, it's a chain. They have a Guinness float on the dessert menu...but I'm looking forward to the Guinness ice cream.
