In a small skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add shallot and sauté until soft, 3 minutes. Add garlic; cook for 2 minutes longer. Transfer to a food processor and let cool.
Add Guinness, cheeses, caraway and paprika to food processor and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Place in a serving bowl, cover and chill for at least 4 hours. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with crackers and crudités.
Made this at New Year's rather than buying cheese ball spread. No one really cared for it amongst the other choices. One person said it tasted like the cheese you get out of a can, and I agree. Would not make again.
Love this dip! made it for our annual NYE party and everyone is loving it! Had some day-old homemade french bread which I turned into garlic toasts to serve with this. Crackers, toasts, and grape tomatoes are best with this dip.
This was wonderful! I was expecting it to be a bit more bitter from the Guinness, but nope! It was just right! One thing though...don't over refrigerate. We refrigerated overnight after eating most of it, and it was too hard to dip. We microwaved for a few seconds. All of us in the house predered crackers than crudites with this.. it was too cheesy for veggies.
