The story goes that Guinness® Extra Stout (Guinness® Original) and Champagne were first combined to mark Prince Albert's death in 1861, when the steward at Brook's Club in London ordered that even the Champagne should be in mourning, dressed all in black. 

A curiously silky, velvety drink where the effervescence and dry biscuit notes of sparkling wine provides a curious coupling with Guinness® Extra Stout (Guinness® Original), served in a Champagne flute for a touch of decadence.
