These are very dense brownies. I wasn't sure if they'd digest well. I misread the recipe and used the Baker's unsweetened baking chocolate squares instead of the bittersweet chocolate (added some additional sugar as such). This is something of an involved recipe, so I doubt that I'll try it again. I thought the many layers of chocolate flavor would create an interesting taste--not to mention the beer, but I wasn't overly impressed given the extra effort it took to make them.

WOW! these are so delicious and chocolatey and fudgy. They are a little more involved than your typical brownie recipe but the taste is worth it. I made as posted and even added the powdered sugar sprinkled over the top. Excellent recipe! Thanks for a keeper!

Very good and very chocolatey! I did have to substitute semisweet chocolate for the bittersweet and I substituted Guinness draught for the stout because that is what I had on hand. I baked for 30 minutes and they came out cake-like. Next time I will pull them out of the oven a little earlier to get a fudgier consistency.

I wanted to make something to take to a St Patrick's Family Theme Dinner. Thought this would be a quirky take on the Irish Beer. But OMG- these are the best brownies I ever made in my life! And at 62- I know a good brownie! I didnt have some ingredients and substitued White Chocolate CandyBark for the chips and SemiSweet Chocolate Bars for the bittersweet. I didnt have sugarfine sugar-so put a cup in the food processor for one minute. and I couldn't ever dim the results of what is an amazing chocolate Prize. I am so proud to be bringing these-if they make it til then.

These are so, so very good, and the only use I will sanction for the best beer ever. I took them on a vacation that ended in a hurricane evacuation, and they were were a balm for our sad tanless selves :). I was in a hurry when I made them, so my ingredients weren't exactly at room temp and the recipe didn't seem to suffer. I made these for the Healthy Choices game (and right before vacation) so I used egg sub (it is all I had), Smart Balance (ditto), and fewer semi-sweet chips (just sprinkled some on top, in fact) and they were still great. They were dense, moist, fudgy...and the batter smelled soooooooo good! I was worried about the texture b/c of the egg sub, but these babies were a good inch thick. I will absolutely make these again. Thanks so much for posting! Made for Healthy Choices 2008.
