I made this at x-mas for my hubby's very Irish family. They loved it, though they do tend to prefer strong flavors (which this is). I used the Dubliner chedder and also the Kerry Gold Irish White. This made the dip a lovely tan color, instead of the unfortunate color it may have turned had I used an orange color cheese. Oh, I also left out the seeds. Try serving it with green apples and thick pretzle rods, the pumpernickle onoin ones work great! I'm making it again tonight for a Paddy's party. I'm sure some people will be scared of it, but they are probably the same people who think Guinness is "too heavy".

Loved this recipe! I took the review advice of Chef #790468 and used all Irish cheeses and the pumpernickel/onion pretzels. May try the green apples next time!!

This spread has so much promise but was just too overpowering for DH and his friend, both Guinness-loving guys. The flavors are *very* strong. Unfortunately this went untouched. :-(
