I don’t particularly like Guinness; in fact, I would never willingly order any kind of stout here in the US. But I heard the rumors that Guinness actually tastes different in Ireland (specifically in Dublin at the Guinness Storehouse), so I figured I had to at least try it while I was there. I only got a half pint in case it was still terrible.
Guess what: the rumors are right. I actually enjoyed this Guinness, which managed to be smooth and almost creamy and not totally bitter like I’m used to. Some times experimenting pays off.
