"Black Magic" Guinness Mix

My favorite tavern has what it refers to as the "Guinness Mix Program" going on, where they mix Guinness with other beers. What you're looking at here is the mix of Guinness and Magic Hat #9.

When it first arrived at my table, the two beers were almost completely separate. The Guinness stayed on top of the glass, with a layer of Magic Hat #9 underneath. I decided to stir it up, just for fun.

The combo is interesting. You get the apricot aroma of Magic Hat #9 with all the bitterness of Guinness. Drinkable, but not a favorite. Leaves quite a bit of lacing in the glass, which dissipates only very slowly.

ABV: ??

IBU: (probably about the same as Guinness)

My rating: 3/5
