Guinness Caramel Chocolate
Taste test: This large chocolate bar had a 6x2 grid of large sections, with smooth, domed tops bearing neither the Guinness logo, nor that of the chocolate actual maker, Ireland's Lir Chocolates. It promised to contain beer-flavored caramel within the milk chocolate. Beer-flavored caramel? That's a whole new thing for me!
I bit in to my first section to find that the filling was fairly thin, liquidy as promised and noticeably much darker than your standard caramel filling — and different from what was pictured on the package, which showed a more standard caramel color of filling. It didn't taste much like caramel, but I did notice a hint of Guinness beer, albeit in a vastly sweeter, creamier form. Whatever it was that I was tasting, I liked it. Some of the alcohol-laced chocolates take things a bit too far for me, but this one kept it very mild. The filling went very well with the smooth, creamy milk chocolate (and with the cold milk that I had on hand).
