I made this for our Christmas Eve drop in and it was a huge hit! My only change was to add in some smoked Gouda Cheese after reading another review, great suggestion. I served it with a loaf of cubed marble rye/pumpernickel bread and sour dough pretzels! I plan to make this again for a Super Bowl party!

I followed the recipe exactly and it came out great. Everyone loved the beer flavor, which comes through nicely. My only tip is to leave plenty of time for the cheese-melting step. It took almost an hour for my crockpot to melt the cheese (on high).

Really good and easy to make. I added the gouda and the bacon and it was very tasty. Adjustments for next time: use a little less beer and shred the gouda so it melts more easily.

Great dip! It was a little bit too watery at first but I put it on the stove and reduced it a bit and then it was wonderful! I think this would be great with soft baked pretzels and adding bacon would be even better! The Guinness taste really does come through and blends well with the cheese.

Fantastic, huge hit at the party! I took out about 5 oz of the Velveeta and replaced it with a wedge of smoked Gouda with bacon, gave it just a hint of smoky flavor. Just personal preference, I'm sure that strictly adhering to the recipe as written would not have changed my opinion :)
