I made one of these. Just used the beer I had at home. It came out quite dark. All my friends loved it! To me, it is bit on the sweet side. I think I will cut back on the brown sugar and the butter when making it again

Okay bread, has a lot of sweetness to it. The batter worried me a bit; it was so runny I didn't think it would bake up right. I did add probably an extra 1/4 cup of flour because it looked too runny. But it baked into a nice loaf served warm with some butter. Fun to try for St. Patrick's day, but probably won't make again.
