Allow me to start with the punchline. Guinness + Cold Brew Coffee = Tiramisu. Any one of those categories are divisive in their appeal. You either love them or leave them. So you are now free to pass on this review, or decide on a nice reading corner to be immersed in a scene of divinity and perfection in a pint glass which is the Guinness Nitro Cold Brew Coffee Beer.
I need to further disclose that I am in camp of “love it” in all three categories. I am deeply illogically (inexpertly) protective and a purist about Guinness (must be perfectly patiently poured), coffees (exceptional roast, meticulously brewed, served black), and tiramisu (impeccably balanced in flavors and texture).
The thought of a Guinness/Cold Brew mashup sent me into wildly bipolar reactions of excitement and apprehension. It could only be abysmal or phenomenal. Imagine my delight to then be enveloped in silky tiramisu notes with the first sip. I can no longer tread on this review without bias. This is delicious. You cannot convince me otherwise
Let me break it down.
