This soup was especially good for the time I put into it. I only had a large can of Guiness and I think that made the soup a little bitter so I added some Velvetta that I had. It seemed to do the trick plus I added bacon bits when I served it. I will definatly do this one again.

This soup didn't work out for either my husband or myself. We couldn't even eat it. It was extremely bitter without any Guiness taste. I even added extra cheese as someone message in a previous post it still was bitter. My sympathetic husband who will eat anything I cook, couldn't do this one. Sorry not for us.

Made this last night and it was a huge hit! I did sub out cheddar and dubliner cheeses for the cheese whiz. My only thought is that there needs to be better documentation on how dark the roux needs to be. I didn't get mine quite dark enough, and it left things a little raw flour tasting for a while.
