The flavor of the Ginger was great it meddled so well with the cabbage. Still more flavor was needed.The beer left a little bit of a bitter after taste. Maybe adding apple slices or pears would help. - 27 Mar 2012


heads up... this recipie is listed as vegan. Guinness isn't suitable for either vegetarians or vegans, check this out: There are other stouts out there that are tho, and you could easily use them instead! - 22 Feb 2010
