    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.

    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

    Hmmmm, can't say I've ever tried warm Guinness, I prefer Guinness Extra Cold on tap.

    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.
