This is a great recipe & is super-easy to make. My boyfriend & I love Guinness, & when I saw this recipe (months ago) & tried it for the first time, we knew it was a keeper. The burgers do not have a Guinness-y taste, but they do have a wonderful flavor that I think is owed, in part, to the Guinness. BF & I have made these several times. Just made them again the other night for dinner at BF's parents' house, & everyone loved them. BF took the liberty of adding a little extra Guinness to the burgers while they were cooking (on the grill this time, instead of in the pan). They were excellent as usual. Thanks so much for posting! :)

I Love these burgers. I cant drink Guninness stout cause I cant stand the taste of it, but WOW it's great in these burgers! I have made the burgers twice so far following your recipe to the letter. Thanks for the recipe!

I've been slowly working my way through the recipes you have posted here and trying out different ones, I've yet to come across a meal I haven't enjoyed ( or my kids for that matter ) and this one is no different. My son loved the texture and flavour, making sure to give me all the help in the kitchen I could stand, by making sure I followed you directions to the letter , lol. My daughter also enjoyed it, even if she was initially put off by seeing some of the ingredients used. Thanks for sharing another awesome meal idea!!
