But one is usually the limit and it easily becomes too filling for me. However paired with the right food, dark beer can rally lift a meal. So why not try to add it into the food instead right?
Now there are many recipes out there that call for a dark beer as an ingredient. A beer boiled pork knuckle for example! This recipe, however, is a bit different since it is a dessert!
Now last year I got a couple of beers from my beloved uncle. He and some friends actually happen to run a brewery with quite good reviews, and I urge everyone who has the opportunity to try their beers.
But, back to the beers as I was saying, I got a couple of beers from my uncle and one of them happened to be a dark chocolate stout. Now, unfortunately, this has been kind of forgotten in the back of the fridge. So the other day when I was cleaning the fridge I found it and thought I need to find a use for this. And there you go, Chocolate Beer Bundt cake!
