The Stout Beer and Irish Cream



The chocolate cupcakes have a rich deep flavor and are very delicious using beer.


Stout beer is a darker beer than a regular beer.


There are a number of variations including Baltic porter, milk stout, and imperial stout; the most common variation is a dry stout, exemplified by Guinness Draught.


It is said to be the world's best-selling stout.


Stout is a top-fermented beer.


Irish cream is a cream liqueur based on Irish whiskey, cream, and other flavorings.


I have a homemade Irish cream recipe here.


It typically served on its own over ice or in mixed drinks, most commonly used in Irish coffee.
