Chocolate Stout


Chocolate Stout

A velvety smooth mouthfeel, satisfyingly roasty flavor and medium body make this brew positively seductive. Subtle hop bitterness rounds out the character of roasted barley and chocolate malt in this proven classic.

Recipe: Chocolate Stout Mushroom Gravy

12 oz white mushrooms sliced thin
12 oz porcini or other wild mushrooms sliced thin
2 shallots minced
4 oz butter
6 oz flour
5 oz chocolate stout
28 oz stock (vegetable, chicken or beef)
10 oz Heavy Cream
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Caramelize mushrooms in a hot wide pan with butter. Add shallots and cook until tender. Add flour to make roux, and cook roux until a light brown color appears. Do this over medium heat and stir constantly for about 5 minutes. Deglaze with Chocolate Stout, then add stock and bring up to a boil to thicken. Once thickened, remove from heat and add cream. Season with Salt and Pepper.
