Expert Tips

  • The sweet milk chocolate balances the dark and bitter flavor of the stout beer. Milk chocolate chips can be used in place of the chocolate chunks.
  • Brown rice syrup is a sweetener derived from brown rice. It has mild malty notes that enhance the beer flavor in this recipe. It is available at large supermarkets or specialty shops.
