I confess...I DID go in an Irish bar and I DID have a Guinness (just as a change from wine, almost a non-drinking night :-) )

I DID take a picture but it is so small and BORING! The chocolate ones in the shop next door are better... :D

Is true. It's very boring. The ones in the shops around it are bigger and better. My uncle saw it in 1946 or 47 and said to not bother even if you were passing nearby. Over 50 years later I visited and he was absolutely correct. Even if you are in Brussel don't bother with it. You will ignore me but then agree with me when you do go.

not drinking Belgian ale when in Belgium is bad enough....but drinking Guinness instead?
If there's no Real Ale and I have to drink something fizzy and factory produced then I'd rather drink a Guinness than a lager. I did try some of the local produce, got through a few pints of Delirium Tremens for instance. But it is not real beer.

I am less fussed about the technicalities of unfiltered, unpasteurised real ale than I used to be, partly because so much of the Belgian stuff has superb flavour (Orval being my favourite) and more recently since I tried a lot of the US craft beers, most of which are not technically real ale, but a lot of them blow the socks off most British ale in terms of flavour. The same applies to many of Brewdog's products, incidentally.

It truly is a pathetic object that amazed me when I saw it as to why it is so 'famous' and used as tourist bait.

As to the chocolate versions, I simply refuse to enter into a discussion as to which parts Tinkerbell nibbled on first!

Honestly, it is like the TARDIS, it may look small when viewing it on the outside but...

Lovely pics Rainy. They make me look forward even more to my trip to the Algarve in April. :)
