Is there an equivalent to the Irish car bomb outside the US? I've found nothing indicating that exact drink mixture goes by another name elsewhere.

idk, four-leafed clover, "patty," corned beef, uncritical support/funding of the ira, pinching people for not wearing green

there's also this weird subculture of, like, conservative irish-americans venerating their homeland as some bastion of staunch catholicism and religious propriety. I see them in the Irish Times fb comments all the time, getting mad at actual Irish people for being abortionist libtards.

I haven't had it in forever but I recall it being pretty tasty. You have to drink it quickly, though.

ICBs are surprisingly tasty, but I haven’t had one in over a decade, and have never ordered one.

I would not call Guinness (and dry Irish stout in general) particularly sweet. That's why it's called a dry stout—most of the sugar has been fermented out, if it's done properly.

When I go back to Guinness these days I'm mainly surprised by how light it is.

For that reason, I usually get the export stout instead of the draught.

corned beef is pretty good with mustard. I ate it at least five or six times in the 28 years I lived in Ireland. but never on st. patrick's day!

I can never find the bottled foreign extra here anymore, but it's pretty good
