Chocolate Stout or Gunness Float

Chocolate Stout or Gunness Float

This remarkable velvety brew will make you dream of the return of St. Patrick’s Day, everyday! Creamy, sweet, chocolaty, semi-bitter edged, frothy, buttery…heaven! In the past, I have always used Guinness, but ever since discovering the “chocolate stout,” I have never looked back. Having said the latter, “both” ales are marvelous—especially in this delectable frothy drink! You choose!
