The Cobblestone, Dublin – Sept ’15 (2/4)

Not Guinness time, not here anyway.

Disappointed does not describe how I feel about the rating I’m giving this establishment’s efforts. I am gutted. This place was once amongst the top-dogs when it came to a tasty pint of the black stuff & as a result I had well talked it up to some mates I was taking here. Jayz, did I overpromise & underdeliver, it was actually embarrassing. Here’s me telling them about how I know good Guinness & how this place has always delivered a 4/4 pint & then bang; brutal pints. The head was a bit of a fluffy one which by halfway through was akin to that scruffy brown foam you see atop water. The taste was definitely not right but for the sake of The Cobblestone, a place that has given me many great nights & quality pints, I soldiered on through to the end. Sadly, the pint ended on a forcing-it-down squinty-wince-face that speaks volumes for the quality of the pint.

I don’t know if it’s the Tripadvisor certificate of excellence & the guaranteed tourist money or the fact that maybe less & less punters go for the pint o’G these days but something has gone seriously wrong here. To go from a 4/4 to a 2/4: seriously gutted for the place; biggest let-down so far on Guinnesslove.com.
