My family just loves this dish. I usually make it with a Pale Ale, as that is what I have on hand, and it turns out great. Delicious!

This is actually a rather good dish. Having never tasted Guinnes and not liking spinach, I wasn't sure how this dish would come out, but it's wonderful--even wowed my notoriously hard-to-feed friend.
