  1. Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan over medium-low heat until it begins to bubble. Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate and sugar until melted. Slowly stir in the stout beer. Cover and refrigerate until completely cooled.
  2. Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions until it reaches "soft-serve" consistency. Transfer ice cream to a two-quart lidded plastic container; cover surface with plastic wrap and seal. For best results, ice cream should ripen in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Ah yes, a perfect dessert.....chocolate, ice cream and Guinness! Great recipe! I used half semisweet and half bittersweet chocolates. Awesome!

The flavor of this ice cream is incredible! I did use half bittersweet and half semi-sweet chocolate chips.

The whole family likes this but we all agree that it's super rich---one scoop is all you want. I don't understand why the little "grains" of chocolate...... We all wish it was smoother.

This was time consuming and expensive having tried 2 times and getting brown gravy.
