Stout Chocolate Brownies

Stout Chocolate Brownies are to die (no, live) for. For me, they are perfect. Not too sweet and oh my goodness, they are so very fudgy.

My stout Chocolate Brownies disappeared in seconds. So fast, I had to make another batch to take photographs. Yes, last Saturday I waited until they(the familia) were all on the go and I made a batch to photograph.

All honor has to go to the Boston Breweries Black River Coffee Stout. It lends a mysterious, rich, darkness to these brownies and together with the creamy ganache, it is just the best brownies I have ever tasted. My twist of course is the toasted, salted nuts on top. This is not my first recipe with stout, though. I have made a Guinness and Leek Pie which is just perfect for our cold winter. I make beer-battered onion rings often, here with milk stout and it is really delicious.
