- Heat the cream in a saucepan over medium-low heat until it begins to bubble. Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate and sugar until melted. Slowly stir in the Guinness®. Cover and refrigerate until completely cooled.
- Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions until it reaches a soft consistency. Transfer ice cream to a two-litre lidded plastic container; cover surface with cling film and seal. For best results, ice cream should ripen in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Simple ingredients and so rich and creamy - this will be a new favourite of mine!-16 Mar 2011
This was really great! I was skeptical about adding beer to ice cream, but it was delicious. I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup, and used semi-sweet chocolate (b/c that is what I had in the cupboard) and this was a HUGE success!-16 Mar 2010

LOVED THIS! I did use semi-sweet chips and I added Heath toffee chips too. Took it to a St. Patty's party and everyone ate it up.-14 Mar 2010
