I drink Guiness all the time with cigars at Robustos. Just don't try anything light hearted, as the Guiness tends to overpower the cigar. I always go for a strong flavored maduro with it.

i was just there, and to tell u the truth, erase what flavor you have as guiness that you drank here. it is a totally different beer and it is incredible, it tastes so much different that normally i wouldn't drink one here cause of its bitter (yet delicious) taste, but over there it is almost sweet so i would say yes.

I've not had Guiness in England but in America they make two kinds of Guiness, Draft and extra stout and they couldn't be more different.

indeed, but Extra Stout is not available in Draft beer at a bar i dont believe. so most of the time if one buys the draft in can/bottle or at the local bar is more than likely the Draught selection of the brand. But even the Draught in England and in Ireland is must sweeter tasting than it is here, it has to do with time (transportation time to the US) and believe it or not the taps at local bars that give it a taste we know and love.

criddler draught to me is less acidic in taste and has a larger creamey head that lasts longer the extrer stout is a much more acidic taste with little head and i just dont like it without the head its nothing but a nasty taste that burns my throat

In Houston, you can either go to a local B&M that will let you BYO, or there's Downing Street Pub or the Smoke Inn. Both of those are still able to have smoking in their establishments.

And Guiness and cigars are always a good combination, IMO. Just not if you're trying to taste delicate flavors and nuances of change.

I'd smoke some full-flavored stuff. A Perdomo Habano Maduro would go GREAT with a pint of Guinness (actually, it dos go GREAT as I've made this pairing just this weekend.) It goes even better after a nice NY strip marinated in Jamison. :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

Being from the Bahamas I know guinness goes good with conch, but have yet to have it with a cigar. The guinness over there taste better than the stuff I get in the US though.
