“I had to buy Guinness and ice cream on the same day and my weird friend suggested that I try making an ice cream float. The experiment was a success!”

I think it needs more ice cream. Perhaps that's personal preference, but I like a tiny bit of ice cream in every bite. Also, it melted very quickly due to the ratio and I ended up with a "drink" within a couple of minutes. Without the bit of ice cream, the bitterness of the guinness shines through (pro or con depending on your taste) I enjoyed it, who would have thought?

Had a variation of this...used 9lb Hammer from Georgetown Brewery, ice cream and carmel....really good but I would have never thought of mixing beer with ice cream!

I tried this experiment without the added cola, when I was a freshman in college back in the mid 90s. It wasn't very enjoyable once I got past the ice cream. With the addition of cola, it's more palatable, though still not a "dessert of choice" for me. I'd prefer a straight pint of Guinness, followed by a straight root beer float, over this concoction. However, it's worth trying once, just to say you did it.
