Continuing the celebration of the 250 years of Guinness, this week’s drink is a wonderful twist on the average pint that was introduced to me by my friend Jason.

I’ll have to try to make this one myself.
The ice cream base has a slight bitter flavor but also a bit of a toffee flavor from the stout. The sweetness of the Heath bar is a good foil to that bitterness while the toffee in it helps bring out more of that toffee
In honor of its 250th anniversary, Guinness is offering you the chance to win “remarkable experiences” like a trip into outer space or to a traveling, underwater bar in Norway or Black Eyed Peas concert at a secret venue.
