I had to buy Guinness and ice cream on the same day and my weird friend suggested that I try making an ice cream float. The experiment was a success!

I think it needs more ice cream. Perhaps that's personal preference but I like a tiny bit of ice cream in every bite. Also it melted very quickly due to the ratio and I ended up with a "drink" within a couple of minutes. Without the bit of ice cream the bitterness of the guinness shines through (pro or con depending on your taste) I enjoyed it who would have thought? Read More

I tried this experiment without the added cola when I was a freshman in college back in the mid 90s. It wasn't very enjoyable once I got past the ice cream. With the addition of cola it's more palatable though still not a "dessert of choice" for me. I'd prefer a straight pint of Guinness followed by a straight root beer float over this concoction. However it's worth trying once just to say you did it. Read More

Good not great. I like Guinness and I like floats but for some reason was not a huge fan of this. It was alright nice to try it once but will probably never make again. Read More

I thought it was just OK. I don't know how much flavor the soda added but the ice cream added the creaminess. Read More

it was bitter to me (not being a stout ale drinker though) and I didn't add nearly as much stout only about 1/3 cup but it tastes great to me and maybe others if you add 1-2 tbsp of chocolate syrup:-) Read More
