EXPERT TIPS

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.
