I have little to add to previous respondents.  I, too, make "Irish Stew" 
with Guinness and Lamb.

My best lamb recipe involves nasty cheap red wine as marinade and 
basting.  Must be cheap.  Must be nasty.  The tannins that make it bad 
for drinking make it good for tenderizing.   Hungarian Egri Bikavér  is 
a favorite.  The rest of the recipe:  poke holes in the raw leg and put 
in sticks of candied ginger and halved garlic cloves.  Marinate and 
baste with aforementioned, roast until done.
