Chocolate Stout CrèmeBREWlée

Tomorrow being St. Patrick's Day I wanted to find a dessert that would be festive. My red velvet crème brûlée was a big hit for Valentines day so I found a chocolate recipe and added some Stout. While Guinness would be the perfect match for St. Patrick's Day I decided to make a small batch yesterday and to see if Young's Double Chocolate Stout would taste better. 
image

I had four other taste testers as well as myself and it was unanimous that the Guinness tasted better. So this morning I made a full batch and here is the recipe I went with:

Ingridents

4 large egg yolks 
2 oz heavy cream
2 oz half and half
4 oz Guinness
4 oz semi sweet chocolate
⅓ cup sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract

Beat eggs and sugar till the ribbon stage
image
image

Heat heavy cream, half and half, and Guinness together until it reaches a boil 
image

Pour the warm mixture over the chocolate and stir together until chocolate has melted. 
image

Temper the egg mixture with the chocolate until it is all incorporated. 
image

Then pour the mixture into ramekins 
image

Preheat BGE (or oven if you want) to 350° and bake in a pan with water half way up the ramekins for 30 minutes. 
image

Here is the batch from yesterday since they are on the egg baking right now. Guinness on the right and Young's on the left. 
image

Chill for 2-3 hours, sprinkle sugar over top and caramelize using kitchen torch or broiler until sugar melts and becomes golden brown. Serve immediately or can be refrigerated for later use.

I was playing around with green sugar and some food coloring as well as trying to keep track of the different kinds for the taste test. 

Happy St. Patricks Day everyone!

    Great looking CBs - almost a crime to boil off Guinness, but well worth it! Excellent, I have some dark Harp in the fridge, might just try this. Thanks for sharing.

    I love Guinness, chocolate, and my BGE. This recipe combined all three.

    I was trying to come up with something different to cook this weekend. I found it, I'm cooking this recipe.

    Thanks for posting!

    Sure, that's why I posted it early. I figured atleast one other person might want to try it!

    Young's Chocolate Stout is very expensive in my neck of the woods, but it's one of my most favorite beers.  It's definitely a special occasion thing.  I think the last time I had one was Valentines Day of 2012....my Sweetie gave me a bottle of it as a gift.  :) 

     

    Nice job on the desserts!  They look delicious.  :)

    Thanks @Dyal_SC I got a four pack of Guinness and one bottle of youngs And I only made a tester batch so I had to drink the rest. While it tastes great, 4 out of 4 people recommended the one with Guinness...

    I gave it a shot. The only thing I changed was I doubled the amount because my ramekins are a little larger. I may have added too much sugar on the top at the end. Otherwise, a huge success! Thanks for the recipe!

    The finished product. I used the broiler in the oven because I don't have a torch, yet. Goes well with a Merlot, or another Guinness. I'm making these again for sure.

    Glad you liked them @nashbama they were a big hit at my party too! 

    @daffy1909 they aren't too hard and are worth the effort if you ever do decide to make them.
