  • 1
    Heat oven to 325°F. In medium bowl, mix crust ingredients; reserve 1 tablespoon crumbs for garnish. Press remaining crumbs in bottom and 2 inches up side of ungreased 10-inch springform pan. Wrap foil around pan to catch drips. Refrigerate while making filling.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cream cheese and granulated sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until well blended, scraping bowl after each addition. Add melted chocolate; beat well. Add remaining filling ingredients; beat until smooth. Pour into crust-lined pan.
  • 3
    Bake 60 to 70 minutes or until edges are set; center of cheesecake will be soft. (To minimize cracking, place shallow pan half full of hot water on lower oven rack during baking.) Turn off oven; leave cheesecake in oven 30 minutes longer.
  • 4
    Carefully run small metal spatula around edge of springform pan. Cool completely, about 2 hours. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • 5
    In 2-quart saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter over medium heat. Add brown sugar and 2 tablespoons stout beer. Heat to boiling; cook and stir about 1 minute or until sugar dissolves. Stir in 1/2 cup whipping cream; return to boiling. Remove from heat. Cool 10 minutes.
  • 6
    To serve, run small metal spatula around edge of springform pan; carefully remove foil and side of pan. Cut cheesecake into slices. Drizzle sauce over slices; sprinkle with salt. Garnish with reserved crumbs. Cover and refrigerate any remaining cheesecake.

Tips

Expert Tips

  • Don't worry about the center of the cheesecake being soft when you take it out of the oven; it becomes firm as it cools. To cut cheesecake easily, dip the knife into water and clean it off after every cut.
