XXV Ice Cream

P1130339

No, you can’t get drunk from beer ice cream.

We’ve come to favor any variation of stout, but if you’re a real beer fanboy, you can try other kinds of beers that have strong, distinct flavors.

We thought beer ice cream would be more or less a novelty that comes and goes, but the legions of beer geeks proved us wrong. They’re like the Trekkies of the food world, and their passion never ceases to amaze.

If you haven’t guessed, that’s from the Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream Book. David’s Guinness-Milk Chocolate – which I’ve also done with other stouts – is on my top five list, so I feel kinda like it would be cheating to do another stout recipe, but somehow, even though I’m not a beer fanboy, I felt OK using another beer.

Well and plus that’s a big bottle with a lot of beer in it. Yeah, I’m a cheap date that way. But I can eat, and yes, I will have dessert. Anyway, I can’t remember where I picked this up, and I don’t know that I really have the palate to notice or appreciate all the stuff they talk about on the label, but yes it was tasty.

Malt Beverage brewed with dates, figs and cocoa nibs with 50% being aged in bourbon barrels and 12.5% with black currant added.

Dates, figs and chocolate, black currants. Barrel-aged in bourbon casks. The result is an Imperial Porter with a tart berry and chocolate aroma with luscious layers of dried fruit, oak and vanilla. A fitting tribute to the 25th anniversary of our flagship beer.

AND it made for super duper eyes rolling back and a little moan kinda tasty ice cream. Oh, well there’s none of the beer left, but how would it have been to have the ice cream in a float of the same beer? Hmn, would that be like cannibalism?
