This drink combines two of our favorite things: Chocolate ice cream and ice-cold stout. Though not a common combination, they taste wonderful together. (Actually, this pairing deserves a more thorough analysis, as it is downright harmonious.) The creamy malt stout brings out a robustness in the ice cream that is magical. We highly recommend that you use a chocolate stout for this drink. Many microbreweries produce versions we like, such as Young’s Chocolate Stout or Brooklyn Brewery’s Black Chocolate Stout. As much as we like Guinness and other dry stouts, they are too light and dry for this concoction.


  • 2 huge scoops (about 2 cups) premium chocolate ice cream
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ¼ cup very cold chocolate stout
  • 1 tablespoon malted milk powder


Put two tall (8-ounce or larger), heavy glasses in the freezer while you make the milkshake.

Put the ice cream, milk, stout, and malted milk powder in a powerful blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into the chilled glasses and serve with spoons.
