The addition of a good dark, roasty beer adds depth and complexity to brownies. Make it a chocolate stout, and it’s an affinity made in heaven. Not counting the beer, this recipe has a one-two chocolate punch: melted bittersweet, plus cocoa powder. Serve the brownies slightly warm, with chilled, frothy glasses of the same chocolate stout you used for baking.

What to buy: You want a chocolate stout with a delicious roasted barley flavor and a chocolate aroma that doesn’t overwhelm. We like Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout.

Instructions

  1. 1Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350°F. Generously grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish (you can also line it with a large piece of parchment to make the brownies easier to lift out).
  2. 2In a saucepan, melt the butter and bittersweet chocolate over low heat, stirring often, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the stout and both sugars. Whisk in the eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Whisk in the vanilla and salt.
  3. 3Sift the flour and cocoa over the chocolate mixture and, using a rubber spatula, stir in until just blended. Pour into the prepared baking dish and spread evenly.
  4. 4Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out almost completely clean, about 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool in the dish on a wire rack, then cut into big squares. Serve with cold milk or chocolate stout.
